The girl who lives above Udolpho’s pâtisserie has earned her name many times over. For one thing, she lives entirely on cream cakes provided from below—devouring them solely by the light of a gibbous moon. For another, she keeps a piano in the corner of her dusty room on which she is forever composing melancholy nocturnes, sometimes with quite eldritch harmonies. Thirdly, she is quite mad.
