I do odd jobs here and there, usually helping Sarah keep the Vault tidy. I came to New Vegas to be a professional gambler. Too bad for me that the "professional" part isn't working out so good. But, I love gambling, so I'm here to stay on the Strip until they kick me out.

Martina Groesbeck is a woman living in Vault 21 on the New Vegas Strip in 2281.

BackgroundEdit

Hailing from New California, Martina came to New Vegas to strike it rich as a professional gambler. However, things did not quite go as planned for on the professional part only to lose most of her money. After failing that, she started doing odd jobs, mostly for Sarah Weintraub in keeping Vault 21 clean and tidy, to make a living.[1]

Her biggest score yet, though, is the spot she landed as Captain Ronald Curtis' informant, hanging around casinos (and unknowingly gathering intel for Caesar's Legion).[2] Martina doesn't break in or sneak through anywhere. No, she just listens. Listens very carefully and memorizes what people talk about. And there's a lot of it. Enough to get her marked for death by the Omertas and currently hiding out in her hotel room in Vault 21.[3][4]

Notable quotesEdit

  • "I... may have overheard some things at Gomorrah that I passed on to the NCR. That's all! Honest." – Response to why the Omertas tried to kill her
  • "No! Well, not really. I mean, I'm not listening through doors or sneaking around or anything. People talk out loud, and I just pay attention. The NCR likes to keep tabs on the activities of the families, and they pay me good caps to hang around the casinos and keep my ears open." – Accusing her of being a spy

  4. The Courier: "Was there something you needed me to do?"
    Vulpes Inculta: "There is a gambler, Martina Groesbeck, who has a knack for learning other people's secrets and passing that information along for a price. The Omertas, who run Gomorrah, have become suspicious of Martina's frequent visits to their casino. Soon they'll pay her a visit of their own. As I said before, Martina Groesback is a useful, if unwitting, source of information. The Omertas want her dead, while I need her alive."
