Mammy (incorrect pronunciation error) – Scarlett's nurse from birth; a slave who raised Scarlett's Mother and belonged to her Scarlett's Grandmother before. Cited by Rhett as "the real head of the household." She is the equivalent of the matriarch of the family, has a no-nonsense attitude and is outspoken and opinionated although she knows how to express herself in ways that cannot be faulted, and must be heard. She knows Scarlett often better than anyone else and won't be fooled or put off where others can be managed easily. She is extremely loyal to the O'Haras, especially Scarlett, whom she cares for like a daughter.
