— Ib's Mother
Ib's mother looks similar to Ib. She has long brown hair tied up in a ponytail, red eyes, and pale skin. She wears a red dress and a red gem on her neck collar. Her age is unknown.
She is a loving and caring mother to Ib. She expects her daughter to behave while at the art gallery but doesn't believe she needs to worry about her too much, as she lets Ib explore on her own. As Ib told Mary once, her mother becomes angry sometimes, during which she isn't nice. Her mother also warns Ib to stay away from strangers, a trait which the Fake Mother tries to deceive Ib with.
Role in Game
She and her husband accompany Ib to the art gallery, where she lets Ib go off on her own, telling her not to cause trouble. She, along with everybody else, disappears when the lights go out. She and her husband appear in a portrait (Couple) in the Fabricated World. If the circumstances are right, in one ending, a fake version of her makes an appearance and attempts to convince Ib to go with her (if Ib chooses to go with her, the player will receive the ending Ib All Alone). If Ib escapes the Fabricated World, she can be found looking at the paintings, and sometimes tells Ib that it is time to leave.
