That sack of shit is convinced that I'm some crazy junkie who stole money from him!

Sara[1] Silver is a former citizen of Megaton hiding out in the only habitable house, a small ranch in Springvale in 2277.


Silver was born in 2255. Now aged 22, she was a prostitute who worked for Colin Moriarty in Megaton before they had a falling out. She ran away with her share of her earnings (or so she says) and is hiding out in Springvale, just outside of Vault 101. Silver is now a pitiful psycho junkie and lives her life in constant fear of reprisal from Moriarty. Her name is a reference to her very light blond, almost silvery hair.[2]

This character is involved in quests.


  • Following in His Footsteps, 300 Pieces of Silver: Moriarty will ask the Lone Wanderer to kill her in return for information about their dad. The choice is to either really kill her, get a varying amount of caps from Silver to pay her debt, or tell Moriarty she is gone without taking any caps from her (which will earn good Karma). Upon her death she will have 100 bottle caps if the Wanderer offered to tell Moriarty she is gone with no reward or 400 bottle caps otherwise.

  • It is possible for the Lone Wanderer to receive the caps from Silver even if Moriarty has not asked the player character to collect them yet.
  • No Karma will be lost for killing her if she is first told "calm down, before I put you down."
  • If the Lone Wanderer asks her if she still offers her services, she will scowl at them.
