Machete was born in 2258. One of the fiercest defenders Little Lamplight has ever seen, 19-year-old "Machete" earned her nickname at the age of 7, when she killed a mole rat in the caves armed only with a knife the size of her arm. Since then, she has been a bona fide celebrity. When she turned 16, she got disoriented in a dust storm and got lost, eventually arriving at Canterbury Commons instead of Big Town. To this day, she refuses to admit that she went to the wrong place. Dominic in particular saw her potential to provide security for the future of the camp, and after a year of his guidance, she's earned a fair amount of respect from the locals.
Machete patrols Canterbury Commons from 8:00 A.M. to 12:00 P.M., eats until 1:00 P.M., patrols until 6:00 P.M., eats until 7:00 P.M., then patrols again until 2:00 A.M., after which she goes to bed and wakes up at 8:00 A.M.
"I know Dom doesn't want me just killing them. He and the Mechanist used to be friends or something. All I know is next time they come to town, I bet I could solve the whole problem with one bullet for each of them."
