Virginia (known by her nickname Gin) is Karen's sister.
Gin has a "bum leg" which was caused during childhood Twister-related accident with her sister Karen in a "rickety old saw mill that juts out over the falls".
She exhibits a lot of bitter resentment towards Karen, blaming her for her inability to dance, read, or hear.
Karen has since been sending her "meager monthly payments" of $300,000 a month, which she no longer can because of her divorce with Stanley.
It is ultimately revealed that she had intended for Karen to fall through the floorboards because she was always jealous of her.
- Gin, as well as her relationship with her sister, is based on the character Jane "Baby Jane" Hudson from the thriller What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?.
I'm sorry. Say that again. I didn't hear you because one of my legs is shorter than the other. — Whatever Happened to Baby Gin?
