It's clear this rift won't heal easily. There's too much animosity between those two now. I still believe they can come together in the end, though. I plan to do everything I can to make that happen. We've been through a lot. I need some time to think. Ad Victoriam, Initiate. Until next time.— Scribe Odessa Valdez

Scribe Odessa Valdez is a scribe in the Brotherhood of Steel who came to Appalachia as part of the Brotherhood First Expeditionary Force.


Valdez was the expedition's scribe and the keeper of the Scrolls. Her parents, early recruits known as the "Knights Valdez," enlisted her in the Brotherhood as an apprentice scribe at a young age.

Under the tutelage of Scribe Hailey Takano, Valdez learned to perform her role satisfactorily, taking a special interest in the operation of vertibirds and other flying machines. Scribe Valdez volunteered for the expedition to Appalachia in place of Scribe Takano, who was unable to join due to her health and other concerns.[1]
