Well, lookit' this! We got ourselves a wanderer all the way out here in Wilhem's' Wharf!

Grandma Sparkle is a trader and cook at Wilhelm's Wharf in 2277.


Sparkle was born in 2205.

Sprightly for a 72-year-old, Grandma Sparkles refused to leave the Wharf, despite the recent super mutant and raider incursions. She's protected by her deft hunting rifle skill and her family, who are out searching for mirelurk meat. She's tasted all kinds of critters and swears that mirelurk is the most delicious.[1]

  • Sometimes, Grandma Sparkle will be wearing the motorcycle helmet that is usually found in the fridge.
  • Sometimes, Grandma Sparkle will be wearing other clothes like the wasteland wanderer outfit and wasteland settler outfit.
  • Her headgear seems to randomly change as well, as she can sometimes be found wearing pre-War hats and baseball caps.
  • Her looks and voice are very similar to Old Lady Gibson's who is found in Gibson Scrap Yard in Fallout: New Vegas.


Grandma Sparkle only appears in Fallout 3.

Behind the scenes

  • She occasionally says, "Y'all come back now, y'hear?". Every episode of The Beverly Hillbillies (as well as some episodes of The Dukes of Hazzard) ended with this very phrase.
Icon cut contentThe following is based on Fallout 3 cut content and has not been confirmed by canon sources.
  • Grandma Sparkle appears in a Form List whose only other entries are for the unimplemented Rock Crick hunters, possibly indicating that they are the "boys" who "are out hunting 'lurks."
  • A partially completed dialogue option in the Broken Steel add-on was to have allowed the Lone Wanderer to ask Grandma Sparkle what she thought of Split Jack's gang. Sparkle's reply is not present, leaving her opinion on the matter a mystery.
