By my calculations, the easiest way to help a human is simply to destroy it. There's no point in prolonging a laughably fragile life.

Jezebel is a dismantled robobrain in the Fort Hagen hangar in 2287.

Background

Jezebel possesses a very rude personality, making no secret of her doubts in the Sole Survivor's abilities. She wastes no opportunity to belittle their allegedly minuscule intelligence.[1] She is fully aware of her hostile personality and even mentions it to the Sole Survivor at one point.[2] Saving and rebuilding her does not change her attitude in the slightest. She will vocally complain about her new body, regardless of its components.[1]

Compounding Jezebel's unfriendly behavior is the fact that she is a prime example of many robobrains' tendency to misinterpret orders and follow their abstract logical reasoning to highly dubious conclusions. During the conversation following her rebuilding, she mentions that she is, in her opinion, helping the human population of the Commonwealth.[3] When pressed by the Sole Survivor how she can possibly claim to be helping humans when she is actually killing them, Jezebel reasons that the logic of attempting to help humans survive has a 25% percent chance of success, or in other words, a 75% percent chance of the humans dying anyway no matter what she does. She, therefore, deduced that simply killing them right away is the most efficient solution as it only serves to hasten mankind's inevitable fate and spares them the suffering of their existence.[4]

Other interactions

The Sole Survivor first meets Jezebel during Headhunting as a disembodied robobrain's head deep within the Fort Hagen satellite array, where she is held captive by the Rust Devils. She offers the Sole Survivor information on the Mechanist in exchange for her rescue and the Sole Survivor constructing a new body for her.

Once her demands have been met, she honors her end of the bargain by revealing the Mechanist's location and how to enter the mysterious figure's hideout. Afterward, she stays at the settlement where she was reconstructed but may be sent to another settlement. She remains there for the rest of the game, having no other role as a result.

Notes

  • When first encountered Jezebel is playing classical music.
  • Jezebel continues to wander the settlement she was reconstructed in after Restoring Order has been finished, behaving like a normal automatron settler, including the option of modifying her robotic body. She cannot be recruited as a follower and offers no interaction apart from rude comments when spoken to.
  • If destroyed, her body will remain at the place of her destruction indefinitely and cannot be moved due to its weight. If she was built using only the stock automatron model, she will be light enough to be moved.
  • Other settlers will treat Jezebel as a settler and will turn hostile if she is destroyed.
  • She can be assigned like other settlers to tasks in a settlement, although assigning her as a trader is not recommended as she will refuse to trade. She can also be assigned to a guard post and can be used to set up supply routes. With the Vault-Tec Workshop add-on, she can be assigned to operate a barber chair or surgery chair with no interference.
  • If Liberty Prime has been rebuilt for the Brotherhood of Steel, when Jezebel remarks on the body made for her, the Sole Survivor can sarcastically comment on how they were going to use Liberty Prime's body for Jezebel, but ultimately settled for the body that was made for her.[5] If Liberty Prime hasn't been rebuilt or hasn't been discovered yet, the Sole Survivor will make a more generic joke instead.
  • If the player character places her on the body of an already existing automatron before equipping her head, remove all items from the automatron, Jezebel cannot be traded with. therefore one may only pickpocket their items back if she has been given legs.
  • Jezebel's head will be removed if she is given a Nukatron torso or galactron space head (included in the Nuka-World add-on), allowing her head to be replaced.
  • Early in the conversation Jezebel mentions that Rust Devils believe whatever she says and that it's been to her advantage.[6] Later when asked how she can be trusted, she says she is unable to lie.[7]

Appearances

Jezebel appears only in the Fallout 4 add-on Automatron.

Behind the scenes

  • Jezebel is found in the same room as Ahab. This is a historical reference to Ahab, the seventh king of Israel, and Jezebel, his wife.
  • Jezebel's story is very similar to one in the Silver Shroud radio show, where the severed head of a robot leads the Shroud to defeat the Mechanist. This is supported by some of Isabel's alterations to some Silver Shroud artwork and her having an Unstoppables comic book.

References

  1. 1.0 1.1 Sole Survivor: "What kind of a body were you expecting?"
    Jezebel: "Considering I look like a junkbot that's been hastily welded together by an amateur, I'd say almost anything else would have been better. However, I suppose I shouldn't be surprised given your limited skill set derived from your equally diminished intelligence.
    (Jezebel's dialogue)
  2. Sole Survivor: "How do I know you'll keep up your end of the bargain?"
    Jezebel: "Even though there's a human brain floating in bio-gel inside my head, I'm still bound by my original programming. It pains me to admit it, but one of my directives states that I cannot lie. Ever. So, while I'm not the most charming robot you've ever encountered, the last thing I'm going to do is violate an agreement we've made. Now that we have that out of the way, do we have a deal?"
    (Jezebel's dialogue)
  3. Sole Survivor: "I knew there was some good left inside that brain."
    Jezebel: "What you call 'good' I call my 'primary directive.' The Mechanist instructed me to seek out and help the people of the Commonwealth. By my calculations, the easiest way to help a human is simply to destroy it. There's no point in prolonging a laughably fragile life. It's the most efficient way to assist them. Any other effort to help tends to result in numerous complex side-effects."
    (Jezebel's dialogue)
  4. Sole Survivor: " I don't think you understand the definition of 'help.'"
    Jezebel: "Help: to give or provide what is necessary to accomplish a task or to satisfy a need. I'm doing exactly as I was instructed. Assisting a human to the best of my abilities only affords a 25 percent survival rate. That means there's a 75 percent chance that despite my efforts, the human I'm assisting will die from something beyond my control. Therefore it's better to hasten the human's death and put them out of their likely chance of misery than to deplete my limited time. It's actually quite elementary, but given your minimal intellect, I suppose I shouldn't be surprised you don't understand.
    (Jezebel's dialogue)
  5. Sole Survivor: "Well, I was going to connect your head to Liberty Prime's body, but I decided to do a little arts and crafts instead. Disappointed?"
    Jezebel: "If you're attempting to use sarcasm as an intimidation tactic, I'm afraid you're wasting your time. Look... it's obvious we don't care for each other's company, which suits me just fine. So, why don't you ask me everything you wanted to know and then I'll be on my way."
    (Jezebel's dialogue)
  6. Sole Survivor: "What did the Rust Devils do to you?"
    Jezebel: "They felt that by keeping my head online would prove useful to them. Fortunately for me, they're stupid enough to actually believe anything I say. Admittedly, it hasn't gotten me very far, but it has saved me from the same fate as my rather unfortunate comrades you see in pieces around you. Now, back to my original question. What are you doing here?"
    (Jezebel's dialogue)
  7. Sole Survivor: "Can we stop with the petty bickering and just get to the part where you tell me how to access the Mechanist's facility?"
    Jezebel: "I promised to answer your questions... and unlike humans, I don't have the capacity to lie. It's rather simple, really. In order to gain entry to the Mechanist's facility, you're going to need to outfit one of your robots with an "M-SAT" modification. I'll upload the plans to your Pip-Boy device. There... I've fulfilled my portion of our agreement. Perhaps I'll remain here for a while and see how things resolve between yourself and the Mechanist... purely for my own amusement, of course. I suspect you'll have quite a tale to tell once you return, but then again, I'd be surprised if you ever return at all.
    (Jezebel's dialogue)
