|The Three Hens|
A group of (usually three) women whose sole purpose within the work is to gossip about the other characters. Sometimes can be used for exposition, but usually is used for comedic effect. They are most common in Victorian and school dramas. Often they'll have no personality traits which make them distinct from each other. They are always together, and can at times be rather mean.
