Dolly Rasmussen is the legendary founder of Anchorage, who as a schoolgirl lived in the original Anchorage, an ancient static settlement in North America. After forseeing a great disaster, she persuaded some townspeople to leave the city and camp outside, who then witnessed the city vaporised as the Sixty Minute War broke out. A long song cycle was written telling of the survivors wandering in the following years until a new city, the current Anchorage, was built on an island in the north Pacific. This was transformed into a fast Traction City, with Dolly as the Margravine, starting the tradition of female rulers of the city, all of which claimed to be descended from her.
