    1878. Molly is born.

    1881. Etta shows her first sign of magic by turning her father's best work shirt green. Whoops.

    1882. Katharine is born.

    1884. The Plague hits the family hard, claiming Edward, Molly and Katharine before the summer is out. Etta makes it through unscathed, but nonetheless hereafter views every minor sniffle or ache as a portent of doom.

    1885. Necessity dictates that Mary remarry relatively soon, to a man similarly widowed by the Plague. Etta isn't particularly happy about this, though reluctantly acknowledges that her new stepfather isn't the worst.

    1886. The family is evicted by the Pennyworth Project and spends a few months living in close quarters with Andrew's sister and her family before they can find new lodgings.
