"It all started the day Mom sent me to bed without dinner."
– Excerpt from Molly's diary
Molly Finch (ˈmɑː.li ˈfɪntʃ | Maalee Finch) is a character from the game What Remains of Edith Finch and is the first story Edith comes across. Molly was the first child and the first daughter of Edie and Sven.
Molly was a little girl, who seemed to love the color pink and her pets: a gerbil and a goldfish. She had a very active, yet disturbing imagination as expressed by her last diary entry that Edith reads and the player lives through.
The player plays as Molly acting out the last day of her life in accordance to the diary entry she wrote. Molly starts by waking up in bed, unable to sleep because she was so hungry, and her mother made her go to bed without eating. First, she eats her gerbil's food and looks for her Halloween candy. She finds no candy so she goes to the bathroom where she eats the berries from the holly on her window sill.From this point, Molly's story turns otherworldly. Molly sees a bird outside of her window and turns into a cat in order to chase it and eat it. After eating the bird, Molly turns into an owl in order to hunt rabbits so she can feed her bottomless hunger. After consuming rabbits, Molly turns into a shark that falls into the ocean so she can eat a seal. Afterward, Molly turns into a "monster" (either a large snake or a large octopus) that lands on a ship. Molly eats every passenger on board before smelling her human self. She slithers through the pipes of her bathroom and under her bed where she wakes up as a human in her bed. She claims the monster is still under her bed where it is waiting for her to fall asleep so it can eat her.
Molly most likely died from eating poisonous holly berries and hallucinated the rest of her story. She didn't remember making it to her bed where she woke up from her hallucinated state and later fell asleep and succumbed to the poison within her system.
