Please, find my daughter!

Catherine can be found at the Riverboat Landing in the Capital Wasteland in the year 2277.


Nadine's mother is very caring, if somewhat overprotective. Catherine lives near Rivet City, and asks the Lone Wanderer to look for her daughter. Nadine was always a headstrong girl, and the first to bag a live Mirelurk hatchling, but Catherine fears her little mite doesn't have the experience to survive in open wilderness.[Non-canon 1]

Catherine came to the Capital Wasteland with her daughter, Nadine. Her life was taken for a spin when Nadine stowed away on the Duchess Gambit and was taken to Point Lookout.


She is the mother of Nadine.

Notable quotes

  • "Please, find my daughter!"
  • "You! Are you going to Point Lookout? I need your help! My daughter stowed away on the Duchess Gambit a few weeks ago, and I've been worried sick ever since. I haven't heard anything from her, but if you're going there, could you look for her? Please, I'll do anything to help!"
  • "Only that it's where Tobar gets those Punga Fruits he sells off. Must be making a good profit off of them, too. I hear rumors the place is full of swamps and killer plants, but I don't know about all that."


Catherine appears only in the Fallout 3 add-on Point Lookout.

  • PCPC Playstation 3Playstation 3 Xbox 360Xbox 360 She may be in the water near the Duchess Gambit, making it impossible to speak to her and obtain a reward for returning Nadine to her. For PC users, this can be solved by using the console command "moveto player" while selecting Catherine. [verified]
