Araminty Brown, mostly called Mrs. Brown, is the wife of Herbert Brown and the mother of Velvet, Edwina, Malvolia, and Donald Brown, as well as an assistant to her husband's butcher business in the town of Sewels.
Early Life/Swimming the Channel Edit
In her early life, Araminty Brown dreamed of swimming the English Channel. Dan Taylor worked with her on her swimming skills. When she finally partook in swimming it, she received one hundred gold sovereigns for completing it. It was shortly after swimming the Channel that she met Herbert Brown and married him. They had a total of four children together: Edwina, Malvolia, Velvet, and Donald. She worked at Mr. Brown's butcher shop as a bookkeeper, logging sales. When Velvet first mentioned that she wanted to enter the Pie in the Grand National, she supported her daughter, as she had strong beliefs in following your dreams. She had a few small arguments with Mr. Brown, mainly because he thought having his daughter enter The Pie in a race was a bad idea. Mrs. Brown was more proud of Velvet than the horse, as she wanted her youngest daughter's dream to come true.Shortly after the race was over, the newspapers came out saying that a girl (Velvet) was the winning jockey. It was then that she had discovered that it was not Ivan Taski who had won, and it was in fact her own daughter. Upon Velvet's arrival home, Mrs. Brown was extremely proud of her.
