Summary: Opal Burdock cut herself off from the Night World and her family after the death of her husband who was executed by the Council for breaking Night World laws. Arrived in Briar Creek, Opal stopped holding off the ageing process. Living alone, with few friends and only her goats for company (and for food), most of the community believed her to be senile. She had been preparing for the arrival of her nieces, the only Night Worlders she had kept in touch with, when she was staked through the heart and killed by JeremyLovett, a werewolf.
