Mentioned Only (Possible Book One flashback sequence)
Bessie was the previous owner of Bessie's Emporium of Wonder prior to the events of Book One. She raised Terra Wilkins since Terra was twelve years of age, having taken her in from the woodlands. As of yet it is not known if she had anypowers, infact it is unlikely though it is certain she had a mysterious air about her. The most plausable is that she was in some fashion senile. Terra took over management of the store following Bessie's death. Terra has stated that it was Bessie who encouraged her to continue writting .
