Authors Notes:

A highly skilled thief, Makin Socorro, who claimed he found her as an infant, raised Khadi. Makin had her picking pockets and throwing knives as soon as she was old enough to understand what he said, or he used her as a distraction while he did the thieving. When she was old enough to realize the wrong of what they did, she couldn't figure out how to get out of it. She faked not being able to get close enough to people as the reason why she came home empty handed, but soon learned that would only get her bruises. So she planned out her escape carefully, then executed it, taking her horse, and few things she had cherished but had never been allowed to touch, with her.
