  • Joana is one of the two prostitutes whose services can be used at Gomorrah, the other being Dazzle. These options are available for Couriers of either gender and will take four hours of in-game time.
  • If the Courier has talked Joanna into sleeping with them, she will lay down on the bed in her room and the Courier can approach the bed to join. The bed then counts as "owned" and will give the Well Rested bonus.
  • Many of the Omerta thugs will state that she has "the hottest ass on the Strip."
  • When she goes into her room she pulls out a cigarette even though her inventory does not contain any cigarettes.

Notable quotes

  • "Well, what do we have here, huh? Let me guess. You've heard about the mistress who makes all your fantasies come true."
  • "It's your paradise on this desolate earth, hon. Your troubles are gone, your pain forgotten, and your dreams come true."
  • "Come here, baby. I'm all yours... are you ready to be all mine?"
  • "He's a filthy monster. I've been with perverted men but Cachino's done things... to me, that - Even other Omertas would also want to kill him if they knew what he does. He's broken so many of their rules that I don't know how he still breathes."
  • "I'm... I don't know what's happening to me. I can't feel a goddamn thing anymore, empty and poisoned like the Wasteland. I'm afraid I won't make it out of here, not without Carlitos. If the Med-X doesn't kill me first, Cachino or another Omerta will. Ha, I look pathetic, huh? The great Joana and now... I don't even know why I'm telling you this."


Joana appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.


  • Icon ps3.png Entering the courtyard and leaving before she initiates contact will cause her to chase the Courier across the world. She has shown up at Ranger Station Alpha, Ranger Station Delta, Ranger Station Foxtrot, Hidden Valley, Primm, Mojave Outpost, mole rat ranch, Camp Golf, Goodsprings and Camp Searchlight. This can also cause her to become unattainable, thus making "Bye Bye Love" impossible to complete.[verified]
  • Icon pc.png Icon ps3.png Icon xbox360.png If you complete "How Little We Know" before beginning "Bye Bye Love," Joana will disappear from the game world, making "Bye Bye Love" unobtainable. [verified]
