Dramatic and often short of cash, Dolly Clout is the closest Folkestone has to a mystic. She tells fortunes and reads tea leaves and many townspeople say she has a gift. This leads to time in the limelight at the Pleasure Gardens Theatre under the stage name of Madame Aeytheria.

A strong bond forms between Dolly and Dorothea when Dolly supports Dorothea through a desperate time and then later Dorothea returns the kindness.
