”It has always seemed to me that a coward is a person who cares more about what people say than about what is right. Bravery isn't about what people call you, Spensa. Its about who you know yourself to be—Spensa's mother on bravery
Appearance and Personality
Spensa's mother is a tall, lean woman with shoulder length hair. She wears an old, worn jumpsuit.
As the wife of the "The Coward of Alta," Spensa's mother is looked down on by her fellow Defiants. After Zeen was portrayed as a deserter by the DDF she was offered a big apartment and a cushy job, if she went along with the DDF's story. She refused this offer and began selling food to workers in the Igneous Caverns, therefore showing herself to be a proud woman.
