* HateSink: [[ChurchgoingVillain Violet]] is Owen and Pearl's abusive [[TheFundamentalist religious fanatic]] of a grandmother who made their lives miserable for years, continuing to mistreat the disfigured Pearl to the present day. Intending on murdering the rest of her family, Violet sabotages Owen's epilepsy medication when the latter is not looking. Revealing to her Pastor that she killed her own daughter and son-in-law, and attempted to drive her own grandchild to suicide, Violet reveals her intention to finish killing the rest of her family, {{Blackmail}}ing the Pastor into compliance so that he does not interfere. Upon returning home, Violet puts a rattlesnake in the toilet in order to make an attempt on Isabel's life, then attempts to set Owen on fire. Later on, Violet attempts to shoot an incapacitated Owen, as well as Isabel, only to be shot by Pearl. Overall, Violet is a textbook example of a [[KnightTemplar self-righteous]] abuser, and a sociopath.
