We're not really here. We're not really talking. It's all made-up, make-believe. We're sleeping, dreaming. The dream became a nightmare. It has to end, it just has to. But we're not in charge. He is, and he doesn't want us to wake up.

T. "Old Lady" Dithers[1] is one of the inhabitants of Vault 112 and part of the Tranquility Lane virtual reality simulation in 2277.

Background

Old Lady Dithers is a inhabitant of Vault 112 and, like the other Vault Dwellers, is trapped in the Tranquility Lane simulation and subject to Stanislaus Braun's whims.

    Poor Old Lady Dithers; she's a sweet old thing to be sure, but prone to bouts of senility. She's recently taken to warbling on about "computer simulations" and "fail-safe" operations. The neighbors sure hope they won't have to commit the old dear."
