Not long after, word reached England that her father had been killed under mysterious circumstances. Now an orphan the school relegated her to scullery maid. She lived alone in a small room in the attic, her only company the ghost of a girl that had passed away several years earlier.
After several years at the school one of her father’s friends returned from India and took her as a ward. Although he assumed responsibility for Jane out of respect for her father, he was cold and distant, eventually returning to India.

She is an accomplished inventor and a dozen or more contraptions in various state of development clutter her workshop.
