Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Unlike other Legion mongrels, Lupa has a Damage Threshold of 4.
  • When sitting next to Antony in the fort, she has a normal mongrel HP of 40, but when fighting her in the arena, she has an increased total of 200.
  • Like other mongrels, if one is wearing a Legion disguise, she can and will sniff them out and alert the camp.
  • Legion fame is gained for killing Lupa if one does so by fighting her in the arena. This is because she was given an honorable death.

  • "Cyber-dog? Like the ones I've seen up in Denver? I know what you're talking about, and it would make Lupa immortal in a way." – Antony
