Julie Farkas is the regional administrator of the Followers of the Apocalypse operating out of the Old Mormon Fort in Freeside in 2281.

BackgroundEdit

Julie Farkas administers of the struggling New Vegas branch of the Followers of the Apocalypse.[1] Aside from research, the Followers provide food to Freeside but are ill-equipped to readily provide medical services. They take whatever donations they can, but no one has been generous enough to lend medical supplies to them. What they really need is a steady supplier of medicine.[2][3] According to her, it would be a godsend if the Followers were able to secure a regular supply of medicine, but the Crimson Caravan is too steep, so the Followers need to think locally. Additionally, a couple of people used to be great assets before they became chem addicts.[4]

As administrator to the New Vegas branch of the Followers, she knows much about the surrounding Freeside neighborhood, including information on the ruling gang known as the Kings, and the unsavory businesses in Freeside.[5][6][7] Even though it is outside of her duties as regional manager, Farkas has tried to make peace between the NCR squatters and the Freeside locals, but has had no luck.[8]

RelationshipsEdit

Julie Farkas is good friends with the NCR Major Elizabeth Kieran.[9][10]

QuestsEdit

Other interactionsEdit

  • When first talking to Julie Farkas, she will ask if the Courier can spare any medical supplies. Giving her supplies increases Follower's fame, and with enough donated supplies, she will offer to sell skill magazines and her medical supplies at a discount.
  • After completing High Times, she will give one stimpak, RadAway or Fixer every 24 hours. The Fixer and RadAway can be traded back to her for XP and Followers of the Apocalypse fame.
  • Also, after completing High Times and raising fame with the Followers of the Apocalypse to Idolized, Julie will ask the player character to join the Followers. It appears that the trigger to this invitation is tied to providing her an abundance of medical supplies, which is reached when she makes the above-mentioned offer of magazines and purchase discounts. Upon joining, the Courier will be given the Followers lab coat and the key to the Followers safehouse.
  • After achieving Idolized status with the Followers, she will eventually refer the player character to Emily Ortal for The Moon Comes Over the Tower quest to help continue the Followers' work.

NotesEdit

  • Even though she asks the Courier to talk to the Crimson Caravan about supplies, there is no option to talk to Alice McLafferty about the Followers.
  • She also recommends Mick & Ralph's for the quest. While there is a dialogue option upon investigating there, it serves only to direct the player character to the Atomic Wrangler.
  • After the update there is an upper limit to how many Fixer, Rad-Away or Med-X that can be turned in, in increments of three, about 15-21 doses of each.
  • She is notably tall, similar to Arcade Gannon and Orris.

Notable quotesEdit

  • "The big man around here is The King. Not much happens in Freeside that he doesn't know about. He has the most influence locally, and some of his crew haven't helped the situation by harassing NCR citizens and charging double for water. Some NCR soldiers have been bringing in supplies, but none of it is going to Freeside locals. I've tried to speak to both sides to no avail."
  • "There is always something needing done. A few souls here in Freeside could be great assets to the community, if they'd kick their addictions. We need to get a regular supply of medicine organized, but the Crimson Caravan wants too many caps for what we need. Lastly, tensions between the townies and NCR tourists have been going downhill fast lately. A lot of innocent people will get hurt if things blow up."
  • "Our aim is to gradually shape a better brighter future for the wasteland. We seek to heal the planet through efforts not unlike the medicine and education we offer here in the Old Mormon Fort. All we ask is members and those seeking aid do their best to help those in need when the opportunity arises."
  • "We arose from the Boneyards of Adytum years ago. Since then, we have made it our mission to rebuild the wasteland and reeducate its inhabitants. We hope to forge a brave new world free of war and poverty by sharing knowledge and resources. Our primary goal is the free exchange of ideas."

    Julie Farkas: "The Old Mormon Fort serves as the regional hub for the Followers of the Apocalypse. I am the administrator for this region."
    (VFSJulieFarkas.txt)
  2. The Courier: "You need medical supplies?"
    Julie Farkas: "Rates of injury and illness in Freeside are very high. Supplies don't last long."
    The Courier: "What do you need?"
    Julie Farkas: "Med-X, Rad-Away, and Fixer are Freeside essentials. I can't pay you for any supplies you bring in, but I could discount the charge for our services."
    The Courier: "Seems like you need a steady supply, not just whatever I can grab for you."
    Julie Farkas: "So far the Crimson Caravan won't cut us a deal. If you can convince them or some other merchant to work with us, I'll discount supplies to you."
    (Julie Farkas' dialogue)
  3. The Courier: "What do you do here?"
    Julie Farkas: "The Followers of the Apocalypse aren't just interested in research. We care for our fellow man and do everything we can to help humanity. Here in Freeside, we provide food and medical services for those in need. We have also organized reconstruction efforts. With the help of Bill Ronte, we were able to install a water pump just west of here, but the Kings quickly took control of the pump."
    (Julie Farkas' dialogue)
  4. The Courier: "Is there anything I can do to help?"
    Julie Farkas: "There is always something needing done. A few souls here in Freeside could be great assets to the community, if they'd kick their addictions. We need to get a regular supply of medicine organized, but the Crimson Caravan wants too many caps for what we need. Lastly, tensions between the townies and NCR tourists have been going downhill fast lately. A lot of innocent people will get hurt if things blow up."
    (Julie Farkas' dialogue)
  5. The Courier: "Things seem pretty rough here in Freeside."
    Julie Farkas: "More than rough, it's a damn mess. Freeside townies are constantly picking fights with NCR civilians. Thugs and thieves are always looking for a victim, and the local families are just sitting back making caps on the mess. Freeside is in dire need, but no one has been man enough to step up. The Followers can only do so much to stem the tide."
    (Julie Farkas' dialogue)
  6. The Courier: "Who are The Kings?"
    Julie Farkas: "They've been Freeside's gang for the past five years or so, ever since Mr. House and his Three Families pushed everyone else out of Vegas. They've done a lot of good for the community - but that seems to be changing. The flood of NCR squatters has been an affront to them. I guess that explains the situation with the water pump. Usually The King wouldn't let his crew bully folks around like that."
    (Julie Farkas' dialogue)
  7. The Courier: "What do you know about Mick and Ralph?"
    Julie Farkas: "I know they sell a lot of guns - as if that's what Freeside needs. I hear Mick handles the guns. No idea what Ralph does."
    The Courier: "Tell me about the Van Graffs."
    Julie Farkas: "Oh, them. They sell energy weapons, which are very popular with better-heeled prospectors looking to explore the wastes. Stay clear of them. Brother and sister are both psychopaths, though at least Gloria is rational. Jean-Baptiste likes killing."
    The Courier: "What's the Atomic Wrangler?"
    Julie Farkas: "A den of iniquity. The Garrets do more than their share to keep the locals drunk or high enough to stay lazy. Their thugs, on the other hand, they keep wired on chems to stay dangerous. What is it with Freeside and brother-sister psychopath teams?"
    (Julie Farkas' dialogue)
  8. The Courier: "If I wanted to calm things down in Freeside, where would I start?"
    Julie Farkas: "The big man around here is The King. Not much happens in Freeside that he doesn't know about. He has the most influence locally, and some of his crew haven't helped the situation by harassing NCR citizens and charging double for water. Some NCR soldiers have been bringing in supplies, but none of it is going to Freeside locals. I've tried to speak to both sides to no avail."
    (Julie Farkas' dialogue)
  9. The Courier: "Do you know anything about NCR soldiers here in Freeside?"
    Julie Farkas: "Only a little. A friend of mine, Major Elizabeth Kieran, has been handing out supplies to the poor a little west of here. What about it?"
    (Julie Farkas' dialogue)
  10. The Courier: "Julie Farkas told me to ask. She said it was important."
    Elizabeth Kieran: "You know Julie? Not everyone in the NCR sees eye-to-eye with the Followers, but they're okay in my book, mostly because of her. If you really want to know, we sent an envoy to the King offering to coordinate the relief effort."
    (Elizabeth Kieran's dialogue)
