As a child, Peggy created the imaginary northern world of Notherland, only to discover as a teenager that the world had become real, and that as it's creator she is responsible for all the creatures who live there. Peggy is now a teenager and has plenty on her mind without having to deal with an imaginary world. When an opportunity arises to cut her ties to Notherland, she grabs it, not realizing the consequences her decision will have on her friends in the other realm.
