Gwen McNamara is the current overseer of Vault 81, in charge of the everything that goes on in the vault. As Austin Engill will communicate to the player during the Vault 81 Tour, Gwen has the final say in all judicial matters within the vault. While it is not known exactly how Gwen came to become the overseer of Vault 81, it can be assumed that she chose to take on the position herself since certain vault dwellers can be heard speaking of how Gwen "knew what she was getting into."
Before the arrival of the Sole Survivor, Gwen was forced to decide to allow Commonwealth traders into the vault and, as a result, the staff have been ordered to pull double shifts to keep the vault operational.
While Gwen is healthy today, medical records indicate that she once had childhood bronchitis that resulted in respiratory infections. She was prescribed a steroidal anti-inflammatory inhaler for emergency use.
