Abuelita is Soos Ramirez's kindly maternal grandmother.
Abuelita has been raising Soos for most of his life, in the absence of his mother (presumably her daughter) and neglectful father. During Soos' twelfth birthday, after discovering that his dad had no interest in visiting his son, she vowed to tear her son-in-law limb from limb should she ever see him. As she continued to act as his parental figure, she encouraged her grandson, and continued to remain an influential figure in Soos' life.
Abuelita first appears in "Gideon Rises," when Gideon's hostile takeover of the Mystery Shack forces Dipper, Mabel and Stan to move in with her. She is shown to be very tolerant of their presence, only asking to keep relatively quiet and cleaning any messes with a vacuum, including Stan messing up her lipstick after kissing her. Despite her hospitality, she is shown grappling with the difficulty of feeding both the Pines family and herself. Immediately following Gideon's arrest, Stan reclaims ownership of the Mystery Shack, allowing the Pines to move out of her house.
She is later mentioned by Soos in "Mabel's Guide to Dating," who claims his grandmother had always called him "the world's most perfect man." A picture of her hangs in Soos' room in the short "Fixin' It with Soos: Cuckoo Clock."
In "Soos and the Real Girl," Abuelita receives an invitation to her grandson Reggie's engagement party, prompting her to implore Soos to find a date, hoping he will be able to find a woman before her demise. Later, she is shown carelessly invading his privacy by reading his diary, and appears in the ballpit at Hoo-Ha Owl's Pizzamatronic Jamboree after the defeat of the Hoo-Ha's Jamboree animatronics. She explains to a confused Dipper and Mabel that she treats her grandson's life as her "soap opera."
A younger Abuelita appears in "Blendin's Game," where Dipper and Mabel witness the birthday where Soos learned that his father was never returning to see him. Despite making numerous attempts to cheer up her troubled grandson, including dinosaur-shaped cookies and birthday presents, she is unsuccessful, making her swear vengeance on his deadbeat father.
Mabel sculpts an Abuelita figurine in "The Love God," as a part of her town diorama, and is shown to be planning on matchmaking her with Stan.
In "Dipper and Mabel vs. the Future" she is mentioned when Soos says that she will finally let him eat crackers on the sofa.
In "Weirdmageddon Part 1," the effects of Weirdmageddon turn Abuelita into a reclining chair. She retains her calm personality, advising Soos to go and save the world. She is last seen reclining and taking a nap.
In "Weirdmageddon 3: Take Back The Falls", she is seen moving into the Mystery Shack shortly after Soos becomes its new owner.
She is a very calm old woman, the years clearly having made her more apt to simply go with the flow. She has fairly simple wants and needs, desiring only quiet and cleanliness, as seen by her habit of instantly jumping to clean things the moment they're dirtied. Despite her somewhat sedentary behavior, she's still quite aware of her surroundings, as she was quick to point out that she couldn't support the Pines' family for long with how much food she could afford. She speaks both English and Spanish.
She is known to be calm in frantic situations, for example in "Weirdmageddon Part 1" she got transformed into a lounge chair, and didn't show any touch of panic.
Soos' grandmother is an elderly woman, with a somewhat portly frame and stout build, similar to her grandson. She has tall, puffy, grey hair, and wears a pair of pale emerald green earrings. While working around the house, she typically wears a magenta dress, a yellow '50s-style cooking apron with a pink heart on it, and a pair of green house slippers.
Abuelita shows unconditional love for her grandson, often praising his positive qualities and ignoring his faults and mistakes. Soos is shown to be prominent figure in her life, nearly every photograph in Abuelita's house depicting him at a different age. Despite this motherly compassion, Abuelita lacks a respect for Soos' privacy, such as indulging in unwarranted reading from his diary and constant observation of his life. Nevertheless, Abuelita's ultimate goal in life is her grandson's wellbeing, which she intends to secure before her passing.
Abuelita seems to think her late husband is a bad person. When Soos asked if his grandpa is in heaven she states, "No... he's not there." In truth, what happened to her husband is never revealed, so this could mean that her husband is still alive. Presumably though, he has passed.
Abuelita happily takes in the Pines family after their forced eviction from the Mystery Shack, peacefully tolerating her stay. While her thoughts of the twins are presumably amicable, her opinions of Stan are left in question, as he passionately kisses her out of joy in discovering the weakness of Gideon. Though she appears discontented by the kiss, their romance seems to be encouraged by Mabel, who considers possibly bringing them together, as seen in "The Love God."
Abuelita does not appreciate her grandson's father. She thinks he is a "deadbeat," and threatens to hurt him if he ever returns.
