Connie is described very different to her twin which makes people hard to believe that they are twins, although they both have corn colored hair. Her face is confident and happy. Connie has a big and sturdy body, while her twin has a smaller build.
Connie is a very obstinate girl and very determined to do everything for her sister. She always does everything that Ruth should do herself, and answer the questions that addressed to Ruth, except in the class, which is quite surprising to the other girls, as they hardly hear her twin speak. This makes Ruth look like Connie's shadow. When Connie left in the fourth year and Ruth in the fifth, Connie came into the fifth dormitory to check Ruth when she was supposed to be in her bed, that made the fifth-years have to yell at her. But still Connie stood obstinately. Only Ruth could defeat Connie, and make her go. Alicia described Connie as a "thick-skinned" and "wants a whole lot of pummelling and shouting at before she feels or understands what they're getting at" while Darrell said that Connie's got "the cheek of a dozen" and she won't give up easily, which is true.
