Neda NightShade 

 Penelope and Nade’s mother. She’s had a hard life since her husband disappeared a few years ago. The only thing police were able to find was a pool of his blood. There was a rumor floating around the neighborhood that he faked his own death and left her a little girl and a baby on the way. So she decided to pick up and move the kids to a nice quiet small town where nobody knows who they were.

She’s fairly stern when she needs to be but in the end loves her children and would do anything to protect them. Unfortunately there was one thing her husband never got to tell her…

Move on, leave, run away, escape this place… but don’t forget about me, about us, about this town. Always remember where you come from so you can appreciate how far you’ve come.

You claim to love her, inside and out, but the only time you call her beautiful is when it’s 3 in the morning and I’ve already turned you down.
