Miriam Forcible, or better known as Miss Forcible, is a retired burlesque actress along with Miss Spink.

Overview Edit

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 in the film 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 clearer.

The Other Miss Forcible Edit

The Other Miss. Forcible looked the same as Miss. Forcible. 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 play; Hamlet.


Appearance Edit

While Miss Spink is Short and Fat, Miss Forcible is tall and skinny, with the exception of her large chest. She is pale, and wears a pink gown with a teal line that matches her eyes. Miss Forcible also carries around small spectacles that she frequently uses, and wears a headband with a rose on top.
