Interested in the lives of the rich and famous?— Frida Madani

Frida Madani is a ghoul in Appalachia.


Madani used to work at the Garrahan Mining Headquarters as a receptionist before the Great War, getting to know the company executives well enough to be occasionally invited to high-class events.[1] This position also made her privy to some of the Garrahan family's internal affairs, such as Isaac Garrahan's sloth obsession.[2] After the Great War, around the time when the Scorched Plague ravaged Appalachia, she managed to escape to the coast. However, the conditions and radiation there were far worse than Appalachia, turning her into a ghoul.[3] She is frustrated at the discrimination she faces as a ghoul and fears turning feral eventually.[4]

She is mixed about her feelings regarding the Garrahan family, as she dislikes how they profited off their miners' labor to live in luxury while billing themselves as champions of the working class, but notes that they were friendly in-person and she herself had a comfortable job, as well as a soft spot for the family.[5][6]

As of 2103 she spends her time wandering around the ground floor of the Garrahan Estate and digging through the Garrahans' former belongings, such as drinking plenty of Vivian Garrahan's wine collection.[7]

Frida Madani appears only in Fallout 76, introduced in the Wastelanders update.


  1. Vault Dweller: "Did you know the Garrahans?"
    Frida Madani: "I did, and better than a lot of people, in fact. I worked at Garrahan HQ before the war. A receptionist. I got to know some of the higher-ups pretty well. Get in with people like that and you get invited to a cocktail party or two."
  2. Vault Dweller: "Must have been fun while it lasted, though."
    Frida Madani: "I can vouch for that. Their parties were a hoot. But money can create as many problems as it solves. Sometimes more. You don't hear about poor kids developing sloth obsessions, for instance."
  3. Vault Dweller: "How did you survive the War?"
    Frida Madani: "I was lucky. I hid, and when those red monsters showed up, I fled east. But the coast is bad. Very bad. It was hit a lot harder than home was. So when people started flooding back, I came back as well. I wasn't unscathed, of course. I became what I am today. A ghoul. And that hasn't made life any easier."
  4. Vault Dweller: "What's life like as a ghoul?"
    Frida Madani: "For one thing, you're never given the benefit of the doubt. Something's stolen? Instant suspect. I guess it's hard to keep an open mind about someone that looks like they'd eat you at the first opportunity, but it's still frustrating. But the worst part? Every time you see one of those feral monsters, you wonder. What separates them from me? Will that be me, someday? That's hard to live with."
  5. Vault Dweller: "What's your opinion of the Garrahans?"
    Frida Madani: "I have mixed feelings. They lived a life of luxury up there, built on the backs of those hard working miners of theirs. On the other hand, they paid my salary and were friendly enough in person. I wasn't exactly slaving away in the pits, either, so how resentful can I be? Especially now that I'm alive and they're long gone."
  6. Vault Dweller: "They got what was coming to them."
    Frida Madani: "In some ways, you're right. I have a soft spot for the Garrahans, but I can't deny that their wealth came at a cost. They tried to bill themselves as the champions of the working stiff, but none of their miners lived like this."
  7. Vault Dweller: "[Luck 4+] Think they left anything good laying around here?"
    Frida Madani: "Well, now that you mention it, I did happen to chance upon some of Vivian Garrahan's old vintage. She always did know her wine. Here, have some. I've had plenty already."
