Who knows AS’s real name? Not even AS herself. She was born at home to parents who never registered her birth so she would stay out of ‘the system’. She was never told her birthday, as her mother believed they didn’t count for as much as a deathday – the unknown anniversary of a person’s death, which will occur at some point in the future.
She’s a patient of Dr Dawn Carter and keeps three fish – Mr Pork, Sinister and Madeleine – as pets.
Her father died when she was fairly young, and her mother later committed suicide by taking an overdose of painkillers. AS found her, and prepared her body before calling the doctor to take her away.
