The Secret Daughter

Abandoned as a child the woman know as Ash Motte was found homeless on the streets of Houston with nothing but tattered clothes and a jar full of moths. Taken in by a young German family she was found to be extremely intelligent, but also lacking in social skills. Diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome shortly thereafter she excelled in classes and graduated college at the age of fourteen. While in college she spent little time with friends, but excelled at Science, Mathematics and Entomology - the study of insects and more specifically Lepidoptery - the study of moths and butterflies. She has an extreme pre-occupation with moths which she says she "understand" her. Though she spent most of her time in either libraries or her dorm room she did manage to develop a few important friendships. It was these friendships that would help guide her later in life.
