Ginny Hackle (née Humboldt), also known as Aunt Ginny, is an elderly woman living in Dupont in her familial home, who offers outmoded robots a safe place to stay.[1] As part of the living arrangement with her outmodes, they go out to find "treasures and junk" and bring them back for Aunt Ginny to either keep or sell for "rent".[2]

Character summary[edit | edit source]

Personality[edit | edit source]

Aunt Ginny is a caring and optimistic[3] lady who likes to help outmodes who have nowhere else to go. She can sometimes show strange quirks, like how she handled Emmy's hair without asking upon their first meeting,[3] and speaking to a painting of her late father, asking if Emmy could be allowed to stay at her home.[1]

Relationships[edit | edit source]

Aunt Ginny has a good relationship with all the outmodes, giving each one encouraging words as she goes through their scrap finds.[3] Her butler, Garrison, is on especially good terms with her as he openly apologizes to her while acting coarse and angry to all the other people in the house.[2]

While Darcy refers to Ginny Hackle as "Aunt Ginny", she is not actually her aunt.[4] The limited interaction between them has been icy, with Ginny being dismissive of Darcy and complaining that Darcy is "too loud".[5]
