Nora is a pre-War resident of Sanctuary Hills in 2077 and one of the two possible player characters available during character creation in Fallout 4. The player can customize her appearance and, if chosen as the player character, her name and SPECIAL stats.
On the morning of October 23, 2077, Nate was preparing to go to an event at the Veteran's Hall in Concord. While getting ready, a Vault-Tec representative visits the family with pre-approved admission into Vault 111.
Mere moments later, a news bulletin warns of an imminent nuclear attack, which forces Nate, Nora, and Shaun to rush to the vault prior to a nuclear bomb detonating nearby, leaving their Mister Handy, Codsworth behind at the House of Tomorrow. After entering the vault, the family, alongside the other admitted residents are placed in cryo-sleep under the guise of decontamination before entering the main vault by Vault-Tec scientists.
If Nora was selected as the player character, she is forced to watch as her husband Nate is murdered by Kellogg while trying to prevent Shaun's kidnapping by the Institute. If Nate was selected, Nora will be murdered instead.
Interactions with the player character
|This character is involved in quests.|
- If she is selected to be the Sole Survivor, when she goes near the USS Constitution and is approached by the lookout, the lookout will mention that according to their pre-War records, her profession is a lawyer.
- If a companion (excluding Curie, Dogmeat, Deacon, Ada and Strong) is taken to her body in Vault 111 they will each have a unique comment on it.
- When the Sole Survivor walks onto the Vault 111 entrance, Nora may step outside the Vault during the explosion.
