At first it was a win-win. They paid us and shared their technology with us. The spoils of their war with the Enclave were particularly enticing. However, with all the recent attacks, the "extra" resources end up being used just protecting the caravans from being exterminated.

Officer Lepelletier is a member of the Rivet City Security Force in 2277.


Serving as a member of the Rivet City Security Force, Lepelletier’s dedication to duty earned her the right, or rather the misfortune, to be placed in charged of Rivet City’s side of the Water Distribution Network following the Brotherhood’s liberation of Project Purity. In exchange for money and technology, Rivet City and Lepelletier are cooperating with the Brotherhood to deliver water to the Capital Wasteland via armed caravans. Working out of a makeshift office just outside of Rivet City, Lepelletier deals with the caravan drivers, guards, and brahmin as they all work to deliver the water to the wasteland. However, almost as soon as the caravans started delivering water, they started getting ambushed. Lepelletier suspects something organized is going on.[1]

  • Protecting the Water Way: Scribe Bigsley directs the Lone Wanderer to Lepelletier because the caravans have been plagued by an especially nasty band of bandits. One can also pass a Speech check, where they asks if they might need a heavier firearm. She agrees by saying that she 'doesn't need it pushing papers anyways' and gives the player her plasma rifle.

Effects of player's actions

  • Lepelletier will turn hostile and attack the player character if they speak with her after joining the gang and extorting her for protection money. However, she should become neutral again if one flees instead of fighting her. Fighting Lepelletier will temporarily cause the rest of the Rivet City Security Force to turn hostile towards the player character as well.

  1. Fallout 3 Official Game Guide Game of the Year Edition p.88: "Officer Lepelletier
    A Rivet City security force team member who, through hard work and dedication, has landed herself the unfortunate position of being in charge of the Water Caravan Escort detail. Rivet City has contracted out with the Brotherhood of Steel to help escort water caravans to their destination, in exchange for getting money and technology from the Brotherhood. Officer Lepelletier has a makeshift office set up outside Rivet City where she handles coordinating the caravans and security details. There is usually a small contingent of caravan drivers, Brahmin, and disgruntled Rivet City policemen buzzing around the bridge gangplank building. Lepelletier's caravans have been getting hijacked more regularly, and she suspects something organized is going on. She'd like you to help investigate what's going on by escorting one of the caravans. She can't pay you, so you'll have to get paid from Bigsley at Project Purity. All her money and gear has already been assigned to other escort details."
