Ostensibly, Tally Lang is a poor, innocent wastelander 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. In reality, she is a raider, seeking to get ahold of hi-tech weaponry to make her gang more powerful.
Interactions with the player character
|This character is involved in 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.
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.

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.
- Vault Dweller: "So I take it guns is what you're after?"
Tally Lang: "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."
- Vault Dweller: "[Raider] C'mon, Tally. Trust me, I'm friends with Crater."
Tally Lang: "Hey, ix-nay on the Ater-Cray! You trying to blow this for me? Listen, my gang could really use those guns, so don't screw this up for me. If anybody asks, just pretend like you bought the act, okay?"
