Wife of Jeremy, Etta Ballard is a unique case of Maker. She took the Maker's Mark and was given the task of seamstress. However, in her mid twenties she stopped following her mark and instead chose to sing in a small bar on the edge of the Drudge. Because of this she and her partner were subjected to a powerful tax. When her first daughter Alice died, she became much more reclusive, showing up to sing her shifts and otherwise spending her hours in mystery.
