She comes to live with Red Sophia and Cerebus in the hotel while Cerebus is married to Red Sophia. She is known for having a bad temper and her dislike of Cerebus. She is afraid of thunder and lightning storms.
Based on the Grandma Giles character in a comic strip by Carl Giles.
I was having to come up with a mother-in-law for Cerebus during his brief marriage - obviously it would have to be some counterbalancing force to this walking id, this three foot tall aardvark with the bad attitude - and I just could not get the picture of the Giles grandmother out of my mind, so, my sincerest apologies to him, but it is a wonderful character.
She hasn’t been in for the last two years; but those were some of the most enjoyable times at the drawing board, sitting down and trying to get the grandmother just right. It’s the perfect image. I just saw the poster that they have for The Giles Exhibition, and it just screams ‘Britannia’. It’s about time that the she was somewhere, six or seven feet tall, with that attitude that only she can do so well!
