Yeah, that's right. Big shiny guns! All the talk in the area is about these Brotherhood folks with their high-tech toys, and I thought, "Tally, you gotta get some of that!" For self-defense, of course! Just so me and some of my poor, innocent friends can protect ourselves from all the nasty folks out there.

Tally Lang is the leader of a group of Blood Eagles in Appalachia.

Background

Ostensibly, Tally Lang is a poor, innocent orphan who has visited Fort Atlas to acquire guns from the recently-arrived Brotherhood of Steel, so that she and her friends can properly defend themselves from the dangers of Appalachia.[1] In reality, she is a raider, seeking to get ahold of hi-tech weaponry to make her gang more powerful.[2]

Some time later, Tally and her group of Blood Eagles stormed into Vault 96, trailing some Hellcats and looking to loot the vault. The group included Needles, Eightball and Dillo. Their actions led to the death of Woods and many mercenaries. Tally's group accidentally becomes locked in. The Vault Dweller encounters Tally through an intercom and she requests for help, offering a vault keycard in exchange. Tally is apathetic towards any Blood Eagles the Vault Dweller killed prior, and does not care about trying to save the rest of the group who may be still stuck inside, saying they're not her problem.

This character is involved in quests.

Quests

  • Forging Trust: Tally is one of four civilians inside Fort Atlas, each with their own problems and requests for the Brotherhood of Steel. Knight Shin asks that the player character interview these civilians, though ultimately Shin discards Tally's request. Shin vehemently denies the prospect of giving valuable weaponry to a wasteland civilian, and this can be reinforced with the suspicion that she may be a raider.
  • A Satisfied Conscience: Tally is in possession of a keycard needed to progress through the Vault but the Vault Dweller must save her and her gang members from attacking Mister Gutsies. The Vault Dweller may kill Tally and her gang.

Other interactions

Tally constantly denies that she is a raider when asked, although Knight Shin has his own suspicions about her. If the player character had sided with the Crater Raiders in order to access Vault 79, they can affirm to Tally that they are friends with Crater, upon which she will quickly tell the player character to keep quiet about her association with the Raiders.[2]

Notes

Tally's hairstyle changes between her appearances. When she first appears, she has a ponytail and very short sides with the Waste Maiden style. Later, she dons the Anchorage style in which she has cut off her ponytail and shaved the sides in horizontal stripes. This shows the time passing between her appearances due to her hair growth on the sides.

Notable quotes

Appearances

Tally Lang appears only in Fallout 76, introduced in the Steel Dawn update and expanded upon in the Steel Reign update.

Behind the scenes

When Tally tells a Crater-allied player character to stop mentioning the Raiders, she will tell them to "ix-nay on the Ater-Cray!" This is Pig Latin, with "ix-nay" in particular being a phrase that has entered common informal usage in English.
