Audry Lilybrook is nearly seventy-five years old now, but she remains spry and smart as a whip.
Her voice is shrill and impossible to ignore, and she runs the orphanage with a firm but understanding hand. Her five assistants deal with a regular influx of new orphans, but something (such as sickness, accidents, or runaways) always seems to keep the orphanage from running at full
capacity. In any case, visitors to the orphanage note that the children are remarkably well behaved and polite, with only a few troublemakers whispering about demons in the basement and witches in the attic.
