Patience Scoggins is the owner of a string of gambling houses and brothels around the docks. While she is easily in her sixties she remains a frightening figure in the underworld. Those who think she is softer or more forgiving for her femininity couldn’t be more wrong, and ‘Ma Scoggins’ is not afraid to get her hands dirty if the men she’s hired prove too squeamish to get the job done. However, to those she considers ‘family’ she can be almost grandmotherly. Ma Scoggins invests her money wisely with brokers in the city but she is never conspicuously wealthy. She dresses plainly, but in a middle class style, never putting on airs and graces above her working class upbringing.
