  • Strictly Business: Grouse mentions that Eulogy Jones wants to acquire some VIP targets. If one accepts his proposal to capture some slaves, he will give the Lone Wanderer a list of four targets. He will allow entry into Paradise Falls after the first capture.
  • Strictly Profitable is an unmarked quest that can be pursued simultaneously to the Strictly Business quest as well as after that quest's completion. The Lone Wanderer can enslave certain people (with a Karma hit) and Grouse will pay them 250 caps per slave and give out a new collar for the next victim.

Other interactions



  • Grouse is the only source of slave collars in the game. Should Grouse die, the player character will be unable to obtain a new slave collar or caps for successful enslavement. However, so long as the player character has a slave collar in their inventory, they will be able to use it to enslave a mezzed non-player character, albeit for no reward other than negative Karma (and removing the enslaved non-player character from the game).
  • He will become hostile if the player character preaches to him for the second time after he dismisses the player character. This will cause the rest of the slavers in Paradise Falls to become hostile as well.

Notable quotes


Grouse appears only in Fallout 3.



  1. 1.0 1.1 Fallout 3 Official Game Guide Game of the Year edition p.75: "Grouse
    He has been with the Slavers since he was a teenager (he is now 30). His father was the former leader before Eulogy usurped him and rose to power, and Grouse has a legacy to live up to. He isn't fond of Eulogy, but he knows that if he moves against him, most of the Slavers would turn on him. He sits at the checkpoint entrance wearing a permanent scowl."
