One of the newest recruits in the raider group, Kiyomi was assigned to guard duty on the outskirts of the Crater, near the farming fields. She is bored and frustrated by this duty - because no one would dare assault the Crater, Kiyomi never sees anything interesting, rather wanting to plan a raid or act against Foundation. She theorizes that Meg Groberg placed her on guard duty as a test of her wills, a test she then becomes determined to pass. However, Wren writes that, as Kiyomi has the southern end of the area on lock down, surprise attacks are not to worry about.
Interactions with the player character
This character is a ghost. Ghost characters cannot be damaged, and will ignore combat.
↑Vault Dweller: "It's an important job. You're the first line of defense." Kiyomi: "Bullshit. Ain't no person or thing in Appalachia that would try to hit us here. This place is no fortress. But we're armed to the damn teeth. Attacking the Crater would be a death sentence."
↑Vault Dweller: "You don't sound happy to be out here." Kiyomi: "Of course I'm not happy! All the action's in the Core. I want to be part of that. I want to plan something nasty against Foundation. I want to lead a raid, you know?"
↑Vault Dweller: "Why are you stuck on guard duty?" Kiyomi: "Guess I haven't earned Meg's trust yet. I haven't been here that long, and this is the detail us new-bloods get.Can't exactly impress Meg while I'm stuck out here trying not to fall asleep.Maybe this is some kind of test, seeing how much bullshit I'll put up with. Well, they're not going to break me. I'll prove what I'm worth."
↑Vault Dweller: "I'll let you get back to your guard duty." Kiyomi: "Gee, thanks. Now get the hell out of my face. I've got guarding to do."
