Character history

Maude Hanson, described as "psychotic" and a "sociopath" by the Vice City Police Department[1], had at one point run a children's home[1], although she later comes to hate children.[2] She later began to run The Cherry Popper Ice Cream Factory in Little Havana, Vice City and used the business as a front to sell drugs to people across the city. The police, by 1986, had begun to investigate her actions, knowing the company to be a front but not anything specific, although she later sold the business to Tommy Vercetti, persistently asking him is he was once a child.[3] Vercetti, after purchasing the business, continues to sell drugs through the company.
