Accomplishments & Achievements
Her hand is at thy throat yet you see her not.
- Has very few remaining memories from early childhood save for traumatic flashes. Her father, who adopted Brom and Anthony during Mabel's youth, were her only companions in youth. While her father was not physically abusive, he was also inattentive to Mabel and had very little experience with raising young women. In many instances, he admitted these shortcomings to Mabel, which both strengthened their bond due to his humility while also damaging Mabel's trust in him. Being the only female child, Mabel was often belittled or subliminally taught that she was not worth as much as her older brothers. This, however, did more to infuriate Mabel than outright destroy her self-esteem.
- Growing up, it was often Mabel's duty to pacify her older brothers during arguments. Their father flattered Mabel with praises of her being the "mature child", but this behavior only reinforced Mabel's idea that she must look after others before herself even at her own expense. This pattern was eventually broken in her young adulthood, but only after the misery of continuing to do so became too much for her to handle. Or, perhaps, the years finally caught up and Mabel was able to teach herself boundaries.
- Was mentally and sexually abused in her youth, with some instances of sexual violence continuing into adulthood.
Mabel is perhaps the most socially tactful member of the Cowdogs when compared to her older brothers.
