Mi Taylor

Mi, the son of Dan Taylor, was a jockey in his earlier years, but was involved in a crash during a race at Manchester that tangled up several horses and killed a fellow jockey. This event caused him to stop riding, and just become a drifter that went from town to town finding homes to reside at temporarily (in most cases, stealing a bit of money). One day, he finds himself resting at the sign that directs to Sewels. On her way home from school, Velvet Brown meets Mi, and talks with him.
