I've spent two and a half decades fostering a self-sufficient, well-guarded and valuable service, all without some jackbooted overlords lookin' over us. The only thing the Brotherhood can offer is telling us what we can and can't do... and try to take a slice of my pie while they're at it. And thus, I have chosen to politely decline any collaboration between our organizations.

Joanna "Jo" Mayfield[2] is the head of the Blue Ridge Caravan Company.

Background

Formerly the head of a pre-War trucking company which shipped freight along the Blue Ridge Parkway, she reorganized her company after the bombs fell and began running brahmin caravans instead of trucks along the same route, thus forming the Blue Ridge Caravan Company. She inherited the company from her grandfather and has been managing it for two and a half decades.[3][1] Vinny Costa notes that although their headquarters is based far from Appalachia, Joanna was making plans to visit in the future.[2]

By 2104, Joanna arrives to oversee operations at the Big Bend Tunnel. She has been deliberately delaying speaking to members of the Brotherhood of Steel over the disappearance of several groups of people.[4] She had initially been trying to solve the issue internally, which she claims was in order to prevent the perpetrators from panicking and fleeing. However, Paladin Leila Rahmani suspects Joanna was afraid the news would scare potential future clients off and is only now cooperating with the Brotherhood because they had been caught lying about the kidnappings.[5]

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 Vault Dweller: "What can you tell me about the Blue Ridge Caravan Company?"
    Joanna Mayfield: "Well I suppose I could tell ya just about anything you want to know, darlin'. I am the owner and proprietor after all. But I'll save us both a little time and give ya the whitepaper version... Started out as a trucking company, hauling up and down the roads of Appalachia. The Blue Ridge parkway in particular, if the name didn't give it away. I inherited the business from my Granpappy. My dear ol' daddy wasn't exactly around well enough to take over himself. God rest his soul. But, being the entrepreneur I am, I didn't give in. Swapped eighteen wheelers for Brahmin backs and trucked on... so to speak. And now, here we are. Serving Appalachia with safe and efficient travel and merchandise."

  2. 2.0 2.1 Vault Dweller: "Who is in charge of the Blue Ridge Caravan Company?"
    Vinny Costa: "That would be Ms. Joanna Mayfield. Or Jo. But newcomers don't get to call her "Jo." So don't. She's been in charge of things since before the war, when we was running trucks up and down the Blue Ridge Parkway. She's running things from our headquarters, well away from here, but she's been planning a visit. We'll see."

  4. Leila Rahmani: "Ms. Mayfield. My name is Leila, I had made an appointment to speak with you."
    Joanna Mayfield: "Please, Joanna is just fine, dear... And while all this cloak and dagger hub-bub is flattering, why don't we cut to the chase... Paladin Rahmani."
    Leila Rahmani: "Well, that was short lived. Okay, Joanna, it appears I've underestimated you."
    Joanna Mayfield: "And lookie there, you've got one of these famous Vault Dwellers in tow. Hm. Familiar looking too. Say, you've done some work for me haven't you? Yeah, that's right... Riding shotgun with my crew through Big Bend?"
    Leila Rahmani: "I'd appreciate if the job offers were saved for later. We're here on pressing business."
    Joanna Mayfield: "Okay, Paladin, down to brass tacks then. It's not an accident that I've finally opted to meet witcha, after playing hard to get for so long. We know you're interested in the folk that've gone missing. We are too. Been looking into it for a spell now."
    (Joanna Mayfield's dialogue and Leila Rahmani's dialogue)
  5. Vault Dweller: "Hold on, if you knew, why lie to Art Knapp? Why refuse our help?"
    Joanna Mayfield: "Plain and simple, I wanted to handle this internally. I didn't want news of this stirring up a panic, maybe causing the perpetrators to flee. Our clients paid us for safe transport, and we failed them. It was our responsibility to solve it... discreetly. I'm sure you can appreciate that. As for deceiving Mr. Knapp... I dislike fibbin', but sometimes you've got to play your cards close to your chest. Especially when lives are at stake."
    Leila Rahmani: "I don't buy it. Sounds more like you were trying to prevent future clients from being scared off. It makes me wonder if this sudden cooperation isn't in the interest of helping others... Maybe you've just been caught."
    Joanna Mayfield: "I'd be offended by these accusations, if it didn't weave such a fascinating story. Are you planning to sell that as a dime novel? Well... If you're wondering why my organization would choose to dodge your calls, examine the attitude with which you've started this conversation. This pseudo-authority you're flaunting is exactly the type of oppression and regulation that my free enterprise can do without."
