Name: Aimee Cranston
Birth date: Cadere 28th, 1804
Age as of 1826: 22
Aimee was born in the Killbraugha to a struggling wash woman. Her father died during the Battle of Trippé and by the time Aimee was six, she was a maid in a mansion belonging to a Shivian landlord. She seemed to have worked there for ten years (learning the basic rules of mathematics and the Shivian language in the process) before traveling to Shiva. It is not known what happened to her mother. While in Shiva, Aimee moved into an apartment with five other girls and worked at Eoin McGill's Tavern. While many other girls her age made extra on the side by being prostitutes, Aimee never stooped to that level nor did she turn informer. It is not clear when Siegfried started using McGill's tavern for KLA meetings, but Aimee was his chosen lookout and seemed to have had a friendly relationship with most KLA members. Kingsley writes that Aimee was instantly attracted to him and that may be true, but it is also true that Devin was also courting her. However, despite being sympathetic, she did not join the KLA until after Siegfried's Day.
"I stood by your (Kingsley's) side when you ran around with Siegfried, I was there when you turned away from us all, and, should you need me now, you know how to reach me. But I cannot stay, not now, not like this."
