The woman referred to only as The Widow is a long-time resident of Sherwood Forest. A Mexican-born American citizen, she is the mother of Stout, Lester and Juan, three young members of the Merry Men, all of whom she maintains strong ties with and tolerates, to a degree, their criminal or activist behavior when combating the corruption of the Sheriff's police. Her husband died of heart disease two years ago at the time of this writing. A devout Catholic, The Widow is a regular member of Friar Tuck's church and constantly chides her sons for not attending more regularly.
