Gladys is a tall elderly woman with gray hair tied into a bun. She wears a nurses' uniform and cap with flats.
Gladys is shown to be quite cranky, and even downright mean-spirited. Despite interactions being limited, she is depicted to be mainly hostile towards Fran, claiming that "she causes nothing but trouble" and quickly becomes irritable after interacting with her. Although, this attitude does seem to follow Gladys, based on her dialogue and actions with the other nurses.
- It is apparent that Gladys has been working in the asylum since she was a young woman, as depicted in an old monochrome photo of her with her previous colleagues and patients.
- Fran is the only patient that Gladys was seen actually interacting with, though it would seem that the nurses weren't actually assigned to any specific patients. Implied previous patients were the twins Lucia Dagenhart, Grace Dagenhart, and Clara and Mia Buhalmet.
- With the documents that were shown by Dr. Deern, it's heavily implied that Gladys was the one who told the press that Fran was deceased. Whether Gladys knew she was alive or dead is currently unknown.
- Upon searching her desk, Fran finds a metal box containing pills and a gun wrapped in a blue fabric. It is never stated why Gladys has a gun, but it is presumably for security purposes.
- After Fran interacts with the gun, no matter how she leaves it (touched or untouched), the gun disappears from the drawer after some time if Fran decides to look inside it again.
