Reader’s Question: Is Ana’s Mother Harris and Stephen King Mother Abagail the same type of character?

Reader’s Question: Is Ana’s Mother Harris and Stephen King Mother Abagail the same type of character?

No, Mother Harris is a lot different from Stephen King’s Mother Abagail. Mother Harris as you know is a warrior saint from the distant pass. She’s over 400 years old. Mother Abigail has not traveled 400 years into the future.

“Mother Abagail” Freemantle lived in Hemingford Home, Nebraska. She is one of the main characters from The Stand. In the 1994 TV miniseries, she is played by Ruby Dee. In the 2020 mini-series the character is played by Whoopi Goldberg.

Mother Abagail is a prophet of God.

Mother Harris is a warrior saint of God.

Let’s put it this way—those like Mother Abagail talk and reason with people and if that doesn’t work, and they still continue to harm other, then those like Mother Harris are sent to kick behind. To put a stop to the atrocities.

Most people will probably like Mother Abagail better. 🙂 Mother Harris isn’t as easy going.

Come to think of it, they are both wearing an, “I don’t tolerate bull&**” expression. LOL!

Mother Harris’ raised eyebrow is probably daring Nikola or Orman to pull one of their usual evil stunts.

She took classes in creative writing in college, specializing in ancient myths and legends. and later at a local community center while living in Chicago. In college she won the national contest to verbally list every country in the world, it's capital and ingenious language. Her works are mainly horror, fantasy, extreme, and sci-fi as well as, as some may says, "the truly strange predicament and puzzling." Books that I've written are "Clash with the Immortals, and eleven others which are part of the "Unholy Pursuit saga,". She has been working on the Chronicles since 2007. She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.

    I can see where one might think this, but having read the story I know they are not the same type of spiritual person. But I do think that they are both warriors in their own way. Mother Harris is a lot more fierce than Mother Abagath.
