Oh my... it's more beautiful than I could have ever imagined!— Agatha, upon retrieving the Soil Stradivarius violin.

Agatha is a 76-year old[1] woman living on her own in a house in the Capital Wasteland. She is a quest giver and a radio host in Fallout 3.

BackgroundEdit

Fine music is in Agatha's blood. Her ancestors were all classically trained musicians, including Hilda Egglebrecht, a resident of Vault 92, and although those days are long gone, she spent her 76 years perfecting the violin until she matched their caliber. She is a kind old woman who feels she is too old to fear the wasteland. She speaks gently and carefully chooses her words, thanks to her education. She spends many a lonely night looking out across the dunes and waiting for someone to come along and help her retrieve the Soil Stradivarius, a lost violin that her great-great-grandmother once owned.[1]

Agatha married her husband and moved to the house in the wastelands, secluding themselves from the world. Their only tie to the outside was a merchant caravan that occasionally came through. Agatha had little to offer except for her music, but to most merchants, that was payment enough. Her husband passed away a few years before 2277, leaving her alone. Merchants still keep her company, especially Crow, to who she sometimes refers as "my love" while on the air.

NotesEdit

  • If Agatha dies after the Agatha's Song quest's completion, her music and voice can still be heard on Agatha's Station, because, as said in dialogue, her broadcasts are pre-recorded.
  • If the Lone Wanderer makes derogatory dialogue choices, Agatha, being peaceful by nature, will strictly order them to leave her house and disallow returning.

Notable quotesEdit

  • "Oh my... it's more beautiful than I could have ever imagined!" – Agatha, referring to the Soil Stradivarius violin
  • "Watch the sass, captain sassy-pants!"
  • "Oh, absolutely irreplaceable! The Stradivarius violins are as unique as a painting or a sculpture... each one its own work of art. I think the opportunity to use that fine instrument with her fellow accomplished musicians was more than a draw for Hilda. Then, the bombs fell. The Vault was sealed, and my family never heard from her again."
  • "Oh my! I didn't know I still had the looks. Well, you just made my day you sweet thing! Let me give you something extra to help you on your way. I have a small amount of ammunition that my husband left behind. A box of odds and ends. I don't think I've opened it in years."
  • "You son of a bitch! You know what that thing meant to me! It was a family heirloom. It belonged rightfully in the hands of a musician, someone to appreciate its value, not to exploit it! I can't believe you'd stab an old woman in the back like this! Get out! GET OUT OF HERE THIS INSTANT!"
