Caught in the Act! Edit
This contact costs 0 points. However when you pick it up you must take the dependents Magpie quality. This represents Margaret taking little things from your living style that you have to replace. Please make a slightly longer than "short" description of how and what you caught her in the act of stealing when you pickup this contact.
Out in the Wild Edit
This contact CANNOT be taken at chargen, but can be taken immediately after character approval.
Moving On Up Edit
This contact cannot be removed, except when changing lifestyles. To do so, you must buy off the associated Dependents (Magpie) negative quality for 6 karma. Only then will Margaret not be able to find you.
Margaret is only seen when she wants to be seen. Its amazing how many people never look up, nor down. Being a mere 16” (40cm) tall with wings will do that to you. As a pixie Margaret has a curiosity for things we tend to take for granted. Often picking up things for no reason other than it looking neat. Often putting them back down somewhere else and forgetting about them.

They Didn't Have Anything Good Edit
