|For other uses, see Valdez.|
Odessa, the daughter of a couple of early recruits in the Brotherhood of Steel known as the "Knights Valdez," was enlisted by her parents into the organization as an apprentice scribe at a young age. Under the tutelage of Scribe Hailey Takano, Odessa learned to perform her role satisfactorily, taking a special interest in the operation of vertibirds and other flying machines.
At some point prior or around 2103, Valdez volunteered for an expedition to Appalachia in the East Coast in place of Scribe Takano, who was unable to join due to her health and other concerns. Valdez became the official scribe and keeper of the Scrolls of the Brotherhood First Expeditionary Force, and joined the original members of the expedition (Paladin Rahmani, Knight Connors, Knight Thornberry, and Knight Shin) east across the Wasteland.
