You're here for the money. I told the Omertas I was good for it! I just need more time!

Comm Officer Lenk is a communications officer stationed at Ranger Station Foxtrot in 2281.

Background

Lenk is an NCR Ranger, filling the role of comm officer at station Foxtrot. She is very jumpy and becomes agitated when first talked to. She will tell the Courier that she was out on patrol near the Hoover Dam when her squad was ambushed by a Legion squad, whereupon she was knocked unconscious. The Legion soldiers killed, butchered, and mutilated her squad but left her alive.[1]

Afterwards, still suffering from the traumatic experience, she no longer had the nerve she once did.[1] But instead of being discharged, Lenk's superiors allowed her to remain with the Rangers in a non-combatant capacity, much to the annoyance of other Rangers, such as Ranger Kudlow, who found her behavior tiresome and unbefitting of a Ranger.[2] Her mental anguish further pushed her to drink and the subsequent gambling led to significant debt with the Omertas, who she is worried will catch up with her.[3]

Quests

  • Lenk's Bad Debts: Lenk is in debt with the Omertas. The Courier can lie to her, professing to be an Omerta agent to collect. Extorting the 250 caps from her results in negative Karma and NCR infamy. On the other hand, passing a Speech check and listening to her story, then telling her she grew strong and will take revenge on the Legion yields positive Karma, but no NCR fame.
  • Return to Sender: Lenk is one of the people that the upgrade codes must be given to.

  1. 1.0 1.1 The Courier: "If you don't tell me, someone else will. I'd rather hear your version."
    Comm Officer Lenk: "[SUCCEEDED] We were on patrol near the Dam when a Legion raiding party jumped us. Didn't even have to time to radio it in. I was hit in the head with a machete and knocked out. Didn't kill me, though some nights I wish it had. When I woke up, my nerve was gone. The rest of my squad was crucified, butchered, mutilated. I don't know how they missed me. Maybe they didn't. Maybe they knew they'd broken me. I gambled and drank a lot after that. Got into trouble, but the Rangers gave me a second chance instead of kicking me out. So, here I am."
    (Comm Officer Lenk's dialogue)
  2. The Courier: "Lenk told me her story."
    Ranger Kudlow: "Yeah, it's a damn shame. There was a lot of talk about expelling her from the Rangers, especially once the gambling and drinking started. Being posted here is her second and last chance, and so far, I'm not impressed. Lenk's jumpy all the time, and the others are sick of it."
    (Ranger Kudlow's dialogue)
  3. The Courier: "What happened between you and the Omertas?"
    Comm Officer Lenk: "I talked to the cashier at Gomorrah into forwarding me some chips - I was convinced I was due for a hot streak. It, uh, didn't go so well. The Omertas were nice and said they'd give me some time to pay them back. They also said if they had to talk to me about my debt again, they wouldn't be nice the next time."
    (Comm Officer Lenk's dialogue)
