Princess is an orphaned child who lost both of her parents at a young age. Her father was a fisherman who died at sea and her mother died in a tragic accident. After the loss of both parents, a family friend took Mary, her older sister into her care while Princess was taken to another town to be looked after by another family.
Mama Pat was the one who found out about the girls in Edobo. She first came across Mary in the street, who was playing with Venes. She was dirty and eating left over food. After asking where her mother was, Mary explained that her mother was dead and took Mama Pat to a poorly old grandmother who was taking care of Venes and Mary.
The old lady was the one who informed Mama Pat about the other sibling, Princess, and after asking around the town they discovered Princess was being poorly looked after. They found Princess and brought all three children to the orphanage. The two girls had no idea that they were sisters and Patrick was the one to tell them. Mary remembered having a sister but had barely any recollection of her.
Princess is a Daddy's girl. You'll usually see her hanging around Patrick's legs, following him around or in his arms. She has the cutest, squeakiest voice and you can hear her shouting orders to the other children from across the yard. As one of the troublesome gang, Princess, Gabbi and Gifty are always up to some kind of mischief. She loves to play and sing and her favourite things to eat are beans, banku and jollof rice.
