Red Earth Silver City
Patricia "Patsy" Rawlins
Severely mentally disabled fourteen year old girl.
Mutation is a reality of ambient radiation, and sadly, fatal or disabling mutations are far more common than super-powers.
Whilst many parents of such mutants reluctantly euthanase the child for the good of the community (a mouth to feed must pull its weight), Patsy’s parents could not bring themselves to end their beautiful child’s life. Eventually, the family was exiled for this crime, and they became travelling traders.
