Oh, that chem-pusher didn't tell you? He got my boy hooked on Jet, sold him a ton of junk on "credit" and now expects me to pay him off.

Trudy is a trader living in the Commonwealth in 2287.


Trudy set up a trading business at a Drumlin Diner some point before 2287, along with her son Patrick. At an unknown point of time, a chem pusher known as Wolfgang came into contact with her son and got him addicted to chems, specifically Jet, and Patrick could not pay Wolfgang back.[1][2] By the time the Sole Survivor arrives, a standoff between Trudy and Wolfgang is underway.
