Today, we’ve compiled a glossary of a few of the terms used throughout Innocent Darkness that have some sort of historical (or fantastical) implications:

Hoyden:

a girl or woman of saucy, boisterous, or carefree behavior; a tomboy (source)

Rake:

a dissolute person; libertine (source)

Dollymop:

part-time or amateur prostitute (source)

Aether:

According to ancient and medieval science aether is the material that fills the region of the universe above the terrestrial sphere. (source)
