Character Bio

Adele Stackhouse photo
Adele Stackhouse, commonly known as Gran, was Sookie and Jason's grandmother and the oldest Stackhouse in Bon Temps.

When her son and daughter-in-law died in a flash flood, she was left to take care of Sookie and Jason. Adele was always a motherly figure to not only her two grandchildren, but Tara Thornton also. She married Francis Stackhouse who died some time ago. She was very interested in local history, particularly during the Civil War period. She founded a local historical club called the "Descendants of the Glorious Dead."

Season One

Once Sookie told Gran about the vampire she had met at Merlotte's, Gran was extremely interested in hearing about his past and any local history with which he was familiar. When she met Bill, she was delighted to hear his memories of Jonas Stackhouse building the very house in which she lived, and extended an invitation for him to come and speak in front of her Civil War historical club. ("The First Taste")

During the build-up to Bill coming to speak to the Descendants of the Glorious Dead, it is clear that not everyone in town is comfortable with Adele's decisions. She makes it known that she is staunchly behind Bill, describing him as "a perfect gentleman." Following the club meeting at which Bill spoke, Sookie returns home to find her gran dead in a pool of blood in their kitchen, making her the third victim of the Bon Temps killer. ("Sparks Fly Out") Her killer is later discovered to be Drew Marshall, who posed as Rene Lenier, a Cajun and close friend of Jason Stackhouse. ("To Love Is to Bury") ("You'll Be the Death of Me")
