Exhalation of air through nostrils.

Bessie is a sentry bot belonging to Duchess in Appalachia.


Following its retirement by the military, Bessie was acquired by Duchess as a bargain due to its integrated weapons being removed, with a pair of Protectron hands where its multi-barreled machine guns normally are. She used it as a 'pack ox-forklift hybrid' to haul the materials and supplies she would use to set up the Wayward.[1] Later, Sol gave it a cow-like paint job and voice.[2]

Currently, Bessie resides in the brahmin pen next to the Wayward. With its synthesized voice, it makes cow-like sounds and occasionally describes cow-like sound effects. From time to time Jide will check if Bessie's combat systems are still offline.[3]
