Alison Wetherfield was a teacher who worked in an English school in Aleppo. Her dæmon was a greenfinch. When Lyra Silvertongue was twenty years old, Alison took a vacation to Constantinople, where she met Lyra after the assassination of Simeon Papadakis. The pair visited a café near the oratory of the Holy Wisdom where they discussed the rose crisis.[1] Alison and Lyra met again on a ferry to Smyrna after the boat crashed into a vessel carrying refugees.[2]
