Young Olga is a school mate of Laura's and roughly the same age, but they don't know each other well. Olga's mother is dead and she lives with her grandmother and her uncompromising father. She also lives with the fact that she walks with a pronounced limp because she was born with one leg significantly shorter than the other.
Olga's father tries to shield her from everything and everyone that may hurt her but, in doing so, he is keeping her from living a normal life. When Charles has the idea of building up a shoe so that Olga can have her feet even, her father is vehemently against it but, luckily for Olga, her grandmother comes to her rescue and Charles is able to help out after all.
