Lady's maid and seamstress for Cecilia de Mercere

Margarita was born in the poorest part of Barcelona. Her father died when she was three in a fight at an ale house. Her mother died in a fire a few years later when the tavern that she worked at caught fire. Margarita was taken in by a kindly old woman who lived nearby. But when Margarita was only ten, the old woman died of illness and Margarita was on her own again. She fell in with a local criminal who first used her as a distraction and then moved her up to picking pockets herself. It wasn't until she was thirteen that her luck took a turn for the better. As it happened, Cecelia de Mercere was in Barcelona visiting the covenant there. Margarita tried to pick Cecilia's pocket and the Redcap caught her at it. But Cecilia took sympathy on the girl and rather than turn her in, offered her an opportunity to turn her life around. Cecilia said that if she was willing to do an honest day's work, Margarita could come work for her. Never happy with the life that was forced upon her, Margarita leaped at the chance and has been working for Cecilia ever since.
