Template:Quote Template:Character Greasy Sae is a bony old woman who sells bowls of hot soup from a large kettle at The Hob in District 12. Katniss Everdeen and Gale Hawthorne trade with her often. She is fairly compassionate towards people and buys any wild dogs that are killed. However, Katniss and Gale are the only providers of fresh meat and will not kill wild dogs unless attacked by them, so she usually has to make due with some other slightly disgusting meat. For instance, her Winter special is made of pig entrails and tree bark. The people of District 12 thought of this as a meal.
When Gale was being nearly whipped to death for killing a turkey he supposedly "killed with a stick and found outside the gates", and Katniss had just recieved a lash on her face, Greasy Sae and a few others from the Hob saved their lives by saying that they don't kill citizens by whipping and that guns were the way they did it in District 12. Katniss would often bring food to her as well as other people who worked at The Hob after she won the Hunger Games as well.
After she had survived the bombings of District 12, she lived with her granddaughter, who is mentally challenged. Katniss states that she is treated like a pet in the Hob and given extra scraps of food. Greasy Sae aids District 13 by being a chef, but feels like she is being held back: in the Hob she made very strange food, such as from dog meat, and said that the plain food in the 13 kitchen bored her. At the end of Mockingjay, she goes to Katniss's house twice a day to make sure she eats. She brings her granddaughter. It is also unknown what she did after Katniss no longer needed her help. Peeta had come to live with her, and no longer needed help from Greasy Sae and her Grandaughter.
