Kim

Annie Shott

Character Analysis

We never actually see Kim's mother directly, but when Father Victor figures out that Kimball O'Hara is Kim's father, he recalls, "I saw Kimball married myself to Annie Shott" (5.73). So Annie Shott—or maybe Annie O'Hara, after her marriage—must be the name of Kim's late mother.
