Surge, short for "Surgeon,"[1] is a member of the raiders residing in the Crater in 2103.


Surge was trained to shoot from a young age "as soon as [she] could hold a pistol straight" by her father and became an expert marksman with surgical precision, earning her her nickname. Her father was no pushover either, once killing three yao guai with only a pistol. However, even that could not prevent his death from heart failure. After he died, Surge wandered the Appalachian Trail and met Lev as he fought super mutants, joining him and ending up at the Crater.[2]

She dislikes Meg's open-arms policy of allowing all sorts of mutants to join the raiders, believing that it will end up getting them killed one day. She also dislikes Johnny Weston and his propensity for cheating at cards. However, she is fond of Molly and her drinks.[3]

  1. Vault Dweller: "What's your name?"
    Surge: "They call me Surge. As in surgeon, but I'm no doctor. I can put a round in a molerat's buck teeth at a thousand meters though."
  2. Vault Dweller: "How did you end up here?"
    Surge: "After my Da died, I walked the Appalachian trail. Figured why not. Spotted Lev in a firefight with some super mutants through my scope. Thought to myself 'now that’s a man I need to know better.'"
