Miss Hannigan is the main antagonist of the Broadway musical, and the films (except that later, in the 1982 film version, she is the secondary antagonist and becomes a minor protagonist, and in Annie: A Royal Adventure!, she is a minor character).
Her first name is Agatha. She is depicted as a very cruel, self-absorbed woman. She despises children (of course, in the 1982 film, she has a heart, as shown when she reforms and tries to save Annie from her brother Rooster Hannigan, who intends to kill her). She is very intimidating towards the orphans, often making threats to them if they don't do what she demands. She is very romantic, and seems to like drugs. Her brother has a girlfriend named Lily St. Regis.She is so drunk that she kisses a radio.
