Deb grew up with caravans, feeling at home in Bunker Hill, and she uses her skills in machining and construction to produce wares for her shop, stating there is no such thing as junk. However, she disagrees with Kessler's practice of paying off Raiders protection money, especially as she takes a cut from the money.
↑ 1.01.1The Sole Survivor: "What's your opinion of Bunker Hill?" Deb: "Well, it's nice enough. Grew up with the caravans, so I feel right at home here. Don't like how we have to pay Raiders protection money, but that's the cost of doing business in the middle of everywhere. Speaking of which, I got a lot of useful supplies here that need a home. Look at them. So lonely." The Sole Survivor: "You give Raiders protection money?" Deb: "Yep. Surprised Mayor Kessler managed to pull that off, but she's convinced them that Bunker Hill is worth more alive than dead. Hate that we don't stand up to them, but what can we do? We're caravan folk, not an army." (Deb's dialogue)
↑Deb: "I'm telling you, there's no such thing as "junk." You know how to fix something up, anything's valuable." Generic[clarification needed]: "That right?" Deb: "Yeah. I've machined up scopes out of Nuka-Cola bottles, put together landmines from lunchboxes. Heck, I even made armor out of paper clips once." Generic[clarification needed]: "Okay, now you're feeding me bull, Deb. You can't make armor out of paper clips." Deb: "Well, no, you can't, but you sure as hell can stitch together metal plates with them. Wire's wire." ([] and Deb's dialogue)
↑Deb: "Well if ain't Mayor Kessler in the flesh. What do I owe the honor?" Kessler: "Just checking up on folks, Deb. No need to lay into me." Deb: "You're here for your cut, right? How much protection money Raiders asking for this week?" Kessler: "That all gets worked out in the ledgers after I collect the town's cut. Don't worry about it. All under control." Deb: "Sure, sure." (Deb's and Kessler's dialogue)
↑Deb: "Well, I'll be. Take this, then. You might want to talk with Kessler, by the by, she's looking for someone like you." (Deb's dialogue)
↑The Sole Survivor: "I'm not doing the job for chump change." Deb: "I'm tired of mercs blowing this off. Are ferals really that scary? Fine. Call it 175 caps." (Deb's dialogue)
