India Morgan Phelps, known as Imp, is the central character of ‘The Drowning Girl.’ She is a diagnosed schizophrenic who struggles to make sense of her encounters with the enigmatic woman named Eva Canning. Imp’s narrative is rich in themes of mythology, folklore, and surrealism, reflecting her fractured perception of reality and her ongoing battle with her own sanity. As the story unfolds, readers are drawn into Imp’s complex and ambiguous world, where the boundaries between truth and delusion blur, leaving them questioning the nature of consciousness and reality.


[“I’m a ghost, a shadow, the whispers of my own voice.”,”Sometimes I believe I am her [Eva], and she is me, and we are lost together in a single, unhomely existence.”,”Truth is a very thin layer over a very deep well.”]


Imp’s appearance is not explicitly detailed, allowing readers to interpret her physical characteristics based on their understanding of her inner turmoil and fragmented sense of self.
