"Little is clear about the rotund matriarch of
the Pugwash Orphanage known only as "The Matron."
She appears to be quite strict with the strange children
in her care but they love her dearly. Local authorities
have asked them but they do not wish to leave the decrepit
building under the bridge that they have called home
for the last five years. Many citizens of Pugwash would
like to see this woman put in jail for hiding her "Spookies,"
as they are beginning to be called, away from the outside
world for all this time. The children, while undeniably
odd, appear healthy and well educated and will therefore
be allowed to stay under the cold, watchful eye of Pugwash's
newest mystery woman.
