Can I do something for you? Or... to you?

Clover is a slave residing in Paradise Falls in the Capital Wasteland in Fallout 3. She is a possible companion of the Lone Wanderer.

Background[]

Originally captured a few months ago prior to the Lone Wanderer leaving Vault 101 in 2277, Clover and her fellow slave Crimson were systematically broken mentally by the torture and abuse perpetrated by the slavers of Paradise Falls until they became obedient to their captors. Eulogy Jones himself claimed both as his personal slaves, using them for sex, personal protection, and as stress relief while continuing to abuse them to no end.[Non-game 1][Non-game 2] Unlike Crimson, who managed to retain some of her will despite the slavers' torture, Clover succumbed to her conditioning, and as a result, her original personality was replaced by one of blind devotion and love to Eulogy (or whoever happens to own her). She willfully kills for, sleeps with, and does everything else she's ordered to do by her owner.[1]

Clover's utter devotion to Eulogy Jones borders on the extreme;[2] she only calls Eulogy "daddy" while everyone else is either "lover" or completely ignored. For the latter, she even refuses to even talk to other men without Eulogy's permission, which actually forces him to have to speak for her.[3] She does not even entertain the idea of having personal ownership, considering anything she carries the property of whomever owns her.[4] When left to herself, she will typically follow Eulogy like a shadow, ten steps behind him,[5] ready to fulfill his wishes at a moment's notice. Eulogy actually expects her to anticipate his desires before he even speaks of them and would subject her to verbal abuse whenever she failed to do so or even simply fell behind while following him.

Due to the constant stream of abuse she has suffered, Clover is desperate for Eulogy's attention and whenever he's displeased, she immediately apologizes profusely, begging him to let her make up for it and assuming the blame no matter how minor it was.[6]

A corollary of her situation is that she is extremely jealous of Eulogy, particularly when Crimson is concerned. She regularly nags her "daddy" to sell his other slave off, so that he can be alone with her. These requests typically earn a berating from Jones with a reminder that Crimson is to be left alone, unless he says otherwise.[2] In an extremely rare case of disobedience, Clover rarely complies with Jones' demands, and regularly picks fights with her fellow prisoner, seeing her as a competitor for her "daddy's" dubious "affections". Constant suggestions to find a buyer and reminders that "daddy's gotten tired" of her get on Crimson's nerves, who hates Jones and would prefer for Clover to just leave her alone.[7] Despite repeat attempts to talk some sense into Clover, she constantly hits the brick wall of not being "daddy's favorite", unable to get her to realize that Jones does not care about either of them and will sell both of them off the moment a good offer is made.[8]

Ironically, Eulogy's supposed "favorite" is the one he's most looking to sell off at a high price.[1] Should that happen, Clover won't skip a beat and becomes devoted to her new "lover" almost immediately.[9]

Companion[]

  • Clover can be recruited as a companion by talking to Eulogy Jones in his pad at Paradise Falls and paying 1,000 caps (500 with 50 Barter), and only while the player character has Evil Karma.
    • If dismissed, Clover returns to Eulogy's pad at Paradise Falls (even if Eulogy Jones and everyone in Paradise Falls is dead). She can be re-hired at any time free of charge and regardless of Karma rating.

Other interactions[]

  • While serving as an active companion, she will occasionally lament about not being near her "daddy," Eulogy.[10]
  • If all the slavers in Paradise Falls are dead while she is present and not yet a companion, she will turn hostile and become permanently unobtainable as a companion.
  • She will turn hostile against the player character if she catches them stealing too many times while in Paradise Falls.
  • Picking the gate at the Temple of the Union will turn Clover hostile.
  • Clover will kill Crimson if the Lone Wanderer starts killing slavers in a stealthy way.
  • Regardless of whether Broken Steel is installed, if Clover is an active companion during Take it Back!, and she is asked to enter the irradiated chamber to activate the purifier, she will refuse (despite allegedly being conditioned not to disobey).[11]

Inventory[]

Notes[]

  • Clover is one of two companions in Fallout 3 that (initially) requires Evil Karma to be recruited, along with Jericho.
    • She is the only companion that can be rehired after being dismissed without requiring the same Karma rating as that needed to first hire her (since Dogmeat and Charon do not have a Karma requirement to begin with).
  • Despite being called a slave in-game, the game files show that Clover actually has the "slaver" class instead, with her tag skills being Barter, Melee Weapons and Small Guns.
  • Clover's slave collar adds 3 points to her DR and its durability does not deteriorate.
  • Clover has the highest carrying capacity out of all human companions (accounting for her default equipment) and the second highest amount of HP (behind Star Paladin Cross); non-human followers like Fawkes will quickly outpace her HP gain by level, however.
  • Due to having both Melee Weapons and Small Guns as tag skills, despite her stated preference for melee combat, Clover will use both melee and ranged weapons with equal ease.[12][13]

Notable quotes[]

Appearances[]

Clover appears in Fallout 3 and Fallout Shelter Online.

Bugs[]

Xbox 360Xbox 360 Trading certain headgear to her will cause her to wear it, but when the player removes it from her inventory, it will become a "default" piece of gear. Other headgear may be given to her to replace it, and she will wear it as normal, but as soon as they remove said headgear from her, she will revert to the previous headgear. It has been confirmed with the stormchaser hat and eyeglasses. [verified]

  • She reverts after an hour or so in-game, or restarting the game.

    Eulogy Jones: "I'll tell you why: because Clover is the craziest girl I've ever seen. And I'm an expert on crazy girls. Crazy in a fight, crazy in the sack, crazy every which way but loose! But most of all, she's crazy in love with whoever's holding her leash. And for the low cost of a thousand caps, Miss Clover could be crazy for you."

And the sooner your dumb ass realizes that, the better off we'll all be."/"Someday, you're going to realize that Eulogy don't give a shit about either of us."/"Dammit, I should have known better than to try and talk sense to you."/"I can't even talk to you.
