Hannah Relf was a member of a research group consisting of seven scholars studying the layers of meaning to the symbols of alethiometers in Oxford. Two years before the flood of 1986, she was recruited by George Papadimitriou to work for the agency of Oakley Street, taking some of her time with the Bodleian alethiometer to answer questions for the secret service.
She befriended Malcolm Polstead and informally recruited him to report on anything unusual he observed during the changes in Oxford at the time.
Hannah Relf was an elderly lady who had grey hair.
