Hella is a name I got from my book but is not based around the description of the character in the book. Hella, I've decided, is Margirita's Mother.
She is always wearing a different animal and excessive amounts of jewelry.
She loves her daughter but disapproves of almost everything she does although not to a serious degree. She also disapproves highly and foremost of Ivan Nikolayevich who seeks her daughter's hand in marriage. In reality, no one in Hella's eyes is good enough for Margirita let alone a apprentice banker.
