Aislin makes her temporary home in the Mellow Marsh on the outskirts of the bustling City of the Sea. She and her fellow "marsh rats" are part of a complex and lucrative trade network
, which relieves people of items they don't really want — right from their pockets or bags —
and replaces them with objects they haven't yet realized they need.
Lately, she's begun to feel the "itch" of wanderlust, and is ready to pack up her things for the next adventure.
