Molly was found as a toddler, wrapped in dirty rags and left sleeping on the doorstep of Hubert, an elderly scholar who came to Asylum for peace and quiet in his twilight years. Obviously unable to care for the child by himself, Hubert convinced several people in the town to help him take care of the foundling while he attempted to locate her parents. That was sixteen years ago.
Molly is a slender and athletic young woman who has an easy smile and pleasant word for absolutely anyone she meets. Being an easy-going and likable child, she was raised by the town in general, but Hubert and Granny Wickshine — the town’s resident apothecary and Hubert’s girlfriend — have been her surrogate parents. Molly began gathering herbs and roots for Granny Wickshine when she was quite young and has since shown a knack for woodcraft, supplementing the town’s meat stocks with trapped rabbits, squirrels, and the occasional deer. She has also proven an able and avid student of the history of warfare under Hubert’s tutelage.
