Background[edit | edit source]
Gladys runs a pawn shop and is a black market fence. She can sell the Stranger a Navkey to Stellar Bay on Monarch, and is also an information broker.
The old lady (as she calls herself) is famous for her cooking and "do it yourself" abilities - she is particularly proud of her sugar cookies , but she also knits pillows stuffed with the hair of famous tossball players.
She is friends with Edna Ingmire, and met Phineas Vernon Welles when they were young - he borrowed some bits from Gladys and never payed her back..

Additional notes[edit | edit source]
- Gladys holds weekly magazine club meetings at Rest-n-Go.
- Gladys follows "The Chairman's Children" serial, and invites the Stranger to join her in listening.
- When trading with Gladys, she will mention several items like a kettle, ceramic mantipillar or a throw pillow she made which may suggest those things will appear in her merchant inventory, but none of those items are actually for sale.
