Casino kid, competent
Five years younger than Ethan, Abigail is quiet and competent. She tends bar at the Casino House during the afternoon, before the regular bartender wakes up, and she helps Ma balance the books. If Ma needs anything done that isn’t dangerous, her first thought is to get Abigail to do it. Abigail has quietly ensured that the local bullies leave her younger siblings alone.
She’s torn between resentment at Val Ethan for taking so long to return to Absalom and joy that they returned at all. She is still angry at Mary for leaving, and very occasionally gets into arguments about it with Ma, who has a more forgiving attitude about Mary.
