A striking woman in a long robe with a fixed stare and expression of mindless bliss, the Enlightened One was sent by AHS-9 to Shady Sands to spread the word of their religion. She is a level four Aligned Hub Seeker with a tranquil state of mind. However, she has found it hard to convert citizens of the NCR to her religion.
Her beliefs infuriate Merk, the local crime boss and big fish, who would like to see her dead.
Interactions with the player character
|This character starts quests.|
|This character is involved in quests.|
- Deliver Hubologist's field report to AHS-9 in San Francisco: She can give a report to deliver to AHS-9 on her progress.
- Kill Hubologist in NCR for Merk: She is the target in Merk's second quest.
The Chosen One can opt to receive a zeta-scan from her, which can increase (+1 or +2) or decrease (-1) Luck, so save first. This scan is mutually exclusive to those in San Francisco. She can give the player character 100 XP, if they pick "Yes," when she first asks if they're an enlightened one, and then the long humorous answer about their level. They can still get the zeta-scan after this if they wish.
- After getting the zeta scan from the Enlightened One, the player character won't be able to get one from AHS-7 later on. Keep in mind that AHS-7 provides a slightly different version of the zeta scan.
- Accepting the zeta scan from the Enlightened One before starting the Kill Hubologist in NCR for Merk quest will prevent the player character from choosing one of the quest resolutions.
The Enlightened One appears only in Fallout 2.
