These are a tribe of Lost Dolls – over the years they have been accidentally left outside the castle walls in the surrounding park land or on the small almost-forgotten beach, during picnics or trips out, or sometimes just on the way in or out of the castle.
They have banded together and learned to embrace their new surroundings, becoming so feral and wild that their more glamorous indoor sisters would never recognise them.
They live in harmony with nature, learning the languages of the various insects. This is a great deal harder than you might think. Beetles, in particular have a vast vocabulary and a large number of dialects, depending on the patterns on their carapace.
This is Anksh – named for her initial anxiety and nervousness at finding herself in the Wild (as they call the castle parklands). She speaks fluent Spider and spends a lot of time caring for chrysalises to ensure a constant population of butterflies in the park.
