    Backstory: Born in the Nunavut territory of Canada as the daughter of the local Anatquq (shaman) and with snow white hair and keen senses Mary Goldfeather was always going to be special. Recognizing that she had been blessed with the spirit of the Ukpik (snow owl) her father trained her to summon forth ethereal wings that grant her the gift of flight. Possessing great wisdom and intuition Mary is Supreme’s “wing” woman and trusted confidant in the Alliance.

    Proffered backstory?

    Budget Review Board:
    Your inquiry is understood. I must refer you to her file found to all with sufficient clearance under her official name.
    Mary Goldfeather is only the name given to her. She was brought to Yellowknife by a sick Inuit male who gave the following account in broken English and clumsy signing:
    Far north from here is ‘killer’ place [sic] where Canada make camp with big cursed fence. [military base?] Mary’s father had heard of Jesu Christus from his father’s father’s father, who heard it from [epithet meaning Norse] and wanted no part of it, because great sickness came from all who talked of him. But Mary is blessed name of mother who would not die from even such sickness as Jesu brought to Nuntak [sic] and so is great. [honorific hand signals and small reverential head-bowing]
    Mary’s father named Nutaaqtik [approximate] fled the sickness at Nuntak as boy with his father in small hunting group. They hunted near [place not understood] on other shore. In their hunting, they came to the ‘killer’ place and found the stone [fearful gestures] They carried it with them, yes, it took all the men to move it. [question from interpreter] Because the birds and the foxes were charmed by it and stayed still for the men to kill them. There was feasting till the sickness came. Three days later all the men were sick. Their hair fell out. Their food would not stay in them. [hands signal may have indicated emesis?] Nutaaqtik [approximate] returned from five-day hunt with [severe coughing fit] with two more men. Nutaaqtik and two other men stood behind other men to help push sick-stone [sic] to old mine whale-breath-hole [airshaft] and dump inside. All men but Nutaaqtik died.
    Nutaaqtik [approximate] then have four wives, not one. They move to shore and try fishing after throw foxes and birds in old mine whale-breath-hole [airshaft] Spring [not her word] came with two wives with child. Wives died badly. Three young died and all five elders. Now Nutaaqtik [approximate] WAS elder. Only four more young and two wives. Two wives pregnant by [general conveyance of mid-summer]
    Young took over fishing. Two wives die but baby live. One baby. Nutaaqtik [approximate] say baby’s name is Mary Goldfeather for shiny parts of wings. Nutaaqtik [approximate] say wings are curse for [epithet apparently meaning hunting group] eating stunned birds and foxes, not earning them by hunt. She must wear them to remind people to earn their way. [last part approximate, end account]
    The sick Inuit male, who never gave his name, died of a peculiar sickness resembling the symptoms of radiation poisoning. Mary Goldfeather’s ‘wings’ did, in fact, exist. A peculiar birth defect with full, working musculature and arterial feed, sensory nerves, etc. It would have been completely beyond the budget of the Yellowknife settlement to remove them, and the baby DID appear sickly, so she was shipped to [pediatric facility name redacted] for care. She was adopted by an activist couple, name redacted as part of ongoing civil suit investigation. She was home-schooled, taught to fly by her adoptive parents, and lived in a secret American facility till the age of majority for her own protection after a local citizen threatened her with physical harm. These facts are verifiable and set out in the other quarterly reports of my predecessor. Please advise of further involvement.
