Plot Appearance Edit

Movie Edit

An excerpt from the main article: Coraline (filmography)

Miss Forcible is less intelligent than Miss Spink. She constantly argues with April about who's right and wrong, and craves attention. As how it was depicted when she was reading Coraline's tea, Miriam is practically blind as a bat, as Miss Spink puts it, and uses small spectacles to see through more clearly.

The Other Forcible Edit

The Other Forcible looked the same as her real-world counterpart. She is revealed with long hair and in a Venus style clamshell. She shed her old skin as if it was a suit and became the younger Forcible, seen on pictures in the Pink Palace, then took her on the trapeze with the Other Miss Spink while quoting a monologue from Shakespeare's Hamlet.
