Beatrix is the landlord of the apartment complex that the girls live in. She is also the mother of Angela, who she loves but often doesn’t have time for. She is thankful her daughter spends so much time with the girls, so that she can work on her business. She is short temper and single minded, refusing to let other people’s needs interfere with her own. She doesn’t seem like a nice person but in truth she is just over worked and tired most of the time.
