I don't share the philosophy that Ghouls and Humans are different. We were all the same once.

Nurse Graves is a ghoul who helps Doctor Barrows in Underworld.


Young by ghoul standards, Doctor Barrow's assistant Nurse Graves is knowledgeable and keen. She helps in Barrows's experiments to diagnose and treat the various brand-new ailments that ghouls are always complaining about. Happy with her lot in life, she spends her time cutting up corpses, inspecting brain tissue samples, and poking feral ghouls with a variety of (mainly sharp) implements.[1]

Apart from other ghouls in the Fallout universe, she sympathizes with humans as much as ghouls (stating they were all the same once) while most other ghouls and humans are on non-friendly relations. She will mention that Doctor Barrows performed experiments on Reilly while she was in her coma and that he believes that if they can study the human body then they may be able to stop or even reverse the effect of human to ghoul transformations.

  • Despite her assuring you that she can "help you if you need stimpaks or blood packs", there is no actual way to get medical supplies from her.
  • When you kill Doctor Barrows she seems to do nothing about it, when asking her about medical help she will direct you to Barrows, even if he's lying dead beside her.
  • When asking about Mister Crowley she says that the good doctor is good friends with him.
  • Comically, Nurse Graves actually has a higher Medicine skill than Doctor Barrows; 100 (according to the console), compared with Barrows' 63.
  • When trading with her she states that she does not take barter, but she does.

Notable quotesEdit

  • "I don't share the philosophy that Ghouls and Humans are different. We were all the same once."
  • "Not impressed, huh? Oh well. I didn't expect a human to understand the gravity of this experiment anyway. Just do me a favor, and don't mention this to anyone. No telling what reaction this could have if it got out."
  • "He's trying to come up with a cure. A way to stop the human to Ghoul transition. Perhaps even one day to reverse it!"


Nurse Graves appears only in Fallout 3.
