Biography: 

Twin sister of Gavin Stevens and mother of Chick Mallison, Maggie is married to Charlie Mallison. Lively, articulate, and energetic in her several roles as wife, mother, and twin sister, she is also intelligent and humorous. She is not merely the champion of these men, but also of domestic values. Maggie is articulate, contentious, and witty in sparring with her husband and brother, but she is a kind, and understanding hostess to young Linda Snopes. Regarding Eula, Maggie says, "The ladies of Jefferson dont care what [Mrs. Snopes] does. What they will never forgive is the way she looks. No: the way the Jefferson gentlemen look at her" (50). In response, Charlie Mallison says, "Speak for your brother...I never looked at her in her life," and Maggie retorts: "Then so much the worse for me...with a mole for a husband. No: moles have warm blood; a Mammoth Cave fish" (50).
