The youngest child of the Breadman family of bakers, Ginger is Dunstana Darkstone’s best friend. At first, their friendship was little more than Dunstana seeing Ginger as a handy source of free cake, but has since become a sincere and unshakeable bond. Though Ginger is often dragged along onto Dunstana’s adventures, Ginger is able to rein in her friend’s most excessive impulses – occasionally forced to resort to whacking Dunstana with a spoon – and Dunstana would never do anything to deliberately put her best friend in harm’s way.
Dunstana is absolutely committed to keep Ginger safe – from dangers inflicted on Ginger by Dunstana herself, but that’s neither here or there. Dunstana has come to see the younger Ginger as a sort of unofficial little sister, and is willing to put to use every lesson she has learned about keeping a little sister safe from her own big sister.
