Mumsy is a Mob exclusive to the The Gorge event in Don't Starve Together and the first character encountered when entering The Gorge world. She instructs players to start cooking to appease The Gnaw and gives them 10 Old Coins with which they can purchase cooking items from herself, her son Billy, Pipton, and Sammy. Players cannot buy from anyone else until interacting with her. She will also inform players of the Gnaw's current craving as well as how the Gnaw liked the food after it was snackrificed.

Placeholder Trivia Edit

  • Mumsy appears to be partially mermified herself, as shown by the scales on her lower body.
  • She was originally conceived as a deer, as revealed in Rhymes with Play #201.
  • She is based on Amalthea, foster-mother to Zeus, who was sometimes depicted as a goat.
    • Mumsy's concept art also notes Capricorn as an influence, which is a Zodiac sign represented by a creature with the head and torso of a goat and the tail of a fish. This is possibly referenced in Mumsy's mermified appearance.
