Murky (Мишка, Mishka) is a fragile, sickly-looking girl. She is another one of the town's orphans.

Description

An orphan with an autistic spectrum disorder, she grumbles, mutters, avoids eye contact and struggles to express her thoughts. Poke her even a little and she shuts off. Her parents died during the First Outbreak. Murky bears living witness to “Isidor’s crime” (he essentially killed them). She develops a spontaneous and morbid attachment to the Haruspex, who she follows everywhere. Conscience itself, walking on dirty feet.

For the player, her story has to be the emotional equivalent of a hoof kick to the chest.

Murky (Мишка, Mishka) is a fragile, sickly-looking girl who lives in a railway carriage next to the Station. She is another one of the town's orphans.  

Description

Murky is an unsociable and gloomy child. She often speaks taciturnly and most of her answers are short or monosyllabic, which gives her the impression of a Steppe creature.

Because she wanders at night and loves to play in the dirt, she leaves an eerie impression on both adults and children.[1] She detests "scary stories."

Background

Her parents died five years before the events of the game; Grace states that their spirits "do nothing but cry."

Murky owns a doll that her parents gave to her while they were still alive, which she cares for deeply. According to her, the doll eats the grass that grows near the bull burial. The doll "listens to the Earth" and then passes the information to Murky.

Future

And my path was called 'Feed the Doll'. I also wanted to be with mom and dad.
Day 12
Following the "Termite Ending", Capella states that Murky will become one of the rulers of the town, controlling street beautification, sanitation, and the water supply. She can listen to the Earth truthfully, without influences from creatures such as the Rat Prophet.

She'll become known as the Lilac Mistress.

Portrait Quotes

We're friends with Murky, even though she's just a little tot. I'll have you know that she's actually very independent. One thing Murky is seriously fond of is digging and playing in the mud. You can also sometimes see her push along somewhere looking all preoccupied—and the places she chooses are usually, like, sinister... I respect that.
Sticky's take on her
Little Murky is an orphan. Her mom and dad lie by the eastern wall here. They died five years ago. I don't know why—they won't tell me, they're always weeping. As for her eating dirt, that's untrue. I've never seen it.
Grace's take on her

Notes

  • In the original English translation of the game, her name was written as "Mishka."
  • Her Russian name—"Мишка"—is an affectionate way of saying "little bear". It can refers to teddy bears, alluding to her connection with dolls.
  • Her doll closely resembles the Haruspex.
