You're not from around here. Who're you?— Katja questioning the Vault Dweller's origin

Katja is a scavenger living in the Boneyard in the year of 2161.


Katja is a slender young woman with a smudged face and dark clothing. She is a scavenger from Adytum who occasionally camps out with the Followers of the Apocalypse in the Boneyard Library, even though she does not follow their way of life. She hates dogs, and will express this disdain out-loud every time the Vault Dweller examines or pets Dogmeat. She is also a possible companion to the Vault Dweller.

Interactions with the player characterEdit

Interactions overviewEdit

This character is a permanent companion.
This character starts quests.


Effects of player's actionsEdit

If the player character has made Shady Sands hostile, Katja will be hostile as well before any attempt to recruit her, even though she claims she's never heard of it.

Other interactionsEdit

  • Katja is a recruitable NPC located in the Boneyard Library. She can be recruited simply by being asked to join. Afterward, she can be used to lockpick closed doors. She is also a decent ally with some small arms (e.g. .223 pistol, 14mm pistol, 10mm SMG. Sprite limitations prohibit her from using 10mm pistol and Desert Eagle .44).
  • She is extremely deadly with a power fist or a Ripper, usually dealing huge amounts of damage with those weapons. Her biggest drawbacks are her low Strength and HP, that she can only carry a bit of weight, and that she needs a constant supply of stimpaks to be able to endure some battles, especially near the end of the game.
  • She can mark the location of the Cathedral on the Vault Dweller's map.
