You see, I need these plants to conduct my studies, and they take some special nourishment. Especially, the carrots.

Dr. Priscilla Penske is a botanist and the guardian of Austin Engill living in Vault 81 in 2287.

Background

The elderly Dr. Penske serves as the chief biologist of Vault 81, primarily in charge of the local hydroponics lab. As such, she is the main supplier of food for the cafeteria. Penske, alongside growing ingredients for the vault's kitchens, develops radiation-free strains of mutated plants like mutfruit. She is also the adoptive grandmother of Austin Engill following the passing of his parents. Despite her generally grumpy demeanor, the doctor is shown to have a softer side, especially where Austin is concerned.

Bugs

  • PCIcon pc.png Playstation 4Icon ps4.png Xbox OneIcon xboxone.png Upon completion of the quest Hole in the Wall, she will no longer buy fertilizer from the player character. Instead, she acts as a generic character on a rotation of set dialogue. In most instances, her dialogue will proceed to offer quests for fertilizer but it does not actually start the quest nor make her accept fertilizer regardless when to talk to her.[verified]
  • Playstation 4Icon ps4.png Upon arriving at Vault 81, Dr. Penske may spawn into the floor, making the Hole in the Wall quest impossible to start. [verified]
