  2. The Sole Survivor: "Who's Jackson?"
    Ada: "Jackson was the leader of this caravan. He had a great mind for technology. In many ways, he is my creator. He installed all my current upgrades. Unfortunately, they were not enough to protect them from the robots."
    (Ada's dialogue)
  3. The Sole Survivor: "So why did you end up staying?"
    Ada: "Our caravan specialized in mechanical repairs and trade. The Commonwealth has an abundance of salvage that would benefit our business. It was a calculated risk."
