Lily Van Meter
Lily came to the Underground when she was around 5 or 6, having run away from an extremely abusive home life, thread bare teddy bear and small suitcase in hand. Her first couple of days surviving she showed great talent and potential as a pick-pocket, despite being nearly caught due to her own fear and illness. That was when Cookie found her. Taking Lily under her wing, Cookie nursed her back to health and began teaching her the way of life Lily had found.
Lily is now an extremely skilled petty thief and larcenist. She is often procuring items of all sorts from all places for different people– for a price, of course, unless you’re Cookie. The price is not always monetary or easy to pay.
Lily’s loyalty is always first and foremost to Cookie, and vice versa. They are almost like mother and child, though in some ways more than usual. It has been said the quickest – though dumbest – way to get to Cookie would be to hurt Lily. Cookie would be there quicker than one would ever expect possible, most likely with a knife to the assailant’s throat. This bond has a tendency to freak some people out.
