Ortho Stice’s Mother
“The Bride”. She is Stice’s mother, and she has an on-and-off relationship with her husband (See Below): When they are on, they stay in their room and have sex, barely tending to their children (See Below); when they are off, she cooks multi-course meals and feeds bits of it to them. Needless to say, the kids actually prosper more when the parents are in a rut.
