Her harsh and brutal character is shown in her branding Isabel as a punishment for standing up to her and running away afterward. He then sold them to a Loyalist couple who brings them to New York away from their previous hometown, Newport, Rhode Island. She is very impatient and she always blames Isabel for accidents she encounters, also often picking on the simplest mistakes such as not placing her dog statue in the right position after being dusted.

The girls' new owners, the Locktons, are devout Loyalists living in New York.
