Poor Wretch is Darkling member of the Back Stairs Mob.


Can’t you help me? I’m afraid I’ve lost myself.

As a Mirrorskin, Poor Wretch has largely lost sight of the original identity — man or woman, Peer or beggar, black or white, Poor Wretch hasn’t the foggiest. His Keeper, the Willow Weaver, stripped away all but the memory of a red rose in Convent Garden, a child’s voice saying “Where are you going?”, and Big Ben chiming three o’clock. The Other took bits and pieces, replacing them with parts from other captured mortals, before abandoning the Darkling to the Hedge. On returning to the mortal world, the other Lost shied away from one who had lost so much more than they. Only Maggie Maudlin and her ragtag family took the Mirrorskin in.


Poor Wretch’s mien shifts subtly but constantly — eye color, complexion, number of teeth. The broad strokes, however, like height and build, remain average. The Mask, too, is unremarkable and plain; mortals have difficulty remembering significant details. This changeling’s wardrobe includes both male and female garb.
