Mrs. Havisham is a strange, wrinkled up lady who never sees the sunlight and never gets out of her bridal gown. She's actually a very cold hearted, yet wealthy, lady who lives just outside the village in a the Satis House.The reader is never really sure about her motives for helping Pip until her character is really developed in the latter part of the book. We begin to suspect her interest in Pip as we learn about her jilted wedding and sad life.
