Biography: 

This icon represents the young women of Jefferson, "with their delicate, silken heads and thin, awkward arms and conscious arms" (175), who stroll downtown in the afternoon when Minnie Cooper goes out alone. The narrative calls them "cousins" of Minnie Cooper, using quotation marks to indicate that they are not actual relatives.
