Portia Gibbons is the "pretty and posh" member of Troop 828. Although she does not wear the standard uniform of the Honeybees, she partakes in the regular scout activities provided from her Mother and Honeybee troop leader, Mary Frances Gibbons.
Portia and Gwen's ways of humiliating Bessie are:
- Scaring Bessie.
- Teasing Bessie.
- Getting Bessie dirty.
- Making Bessie go to the wrong place.
- Trading Bessie some bad things.
- Trying to get Bessie kicked out of the Honeybees.
