Suddenly my specialty is critical to the continuation of the species. I hate to be thankful for the apocalypse but it's nice to be relevant.

Dr. Bethy Mangano is a ghoul scientist, camped in a tent behind the Clarksburg church.


Prior to the Great War, Dr. Mangano was a professor of soil sciences. Her mother always told her to thank people who compliment her. She can recite the Friedrich Nietzsche quote, "Wake and listen! Verily, the earth shall yet be a source of recovery. Remain faithful to the earth, with the power of your virtue."

When the War struck, she was exposed to massive amounts of radiation and became a ghoul, but was physically unharmed. Being a ghoul hurt her self-esteem in regards to her beauty, but still feels it is better than being dead, and likes how she can enter toxic places without fear of radiation. She tries to remain optimistic, especially when the despair of the post-apocalyptic world sinks in, and she reminds herself she can make a difference in the world.

Bethy has recently devoted herself to studying the soils of toxic environments such as the Toxic Valley to determine how to reclaim them for farming.
