Mayor Orden and Madame Orden’s cook. Annie has a strong temper and a fierce spirit, which she displays early on by dumping a pot of boiling water onto a group of soldiers during Colonel Lanser and Mayor Orden’s first meeting. She does this simply because these soldiers are standing on the back porch and watching her through the window. Annie also has a knack for skillfully sneaking around the town after curfew, often running furtive errands for Mayor Orden and serving as a lookout when he secretly visits Molly Morden’s house to help organize Will and Tom Anders’ (two local men) escape from the town.
