Well, that could be Violet, or it could be someone else entirely. I'll take your word for it, but I can't give you a full reward.Major Dhatri

Violet's mangled head is a quest item in Fallout: New Vegas. It is her head if it has been damaged at all.


It is the head of the Fiend Violet. It is part of the quest Three-Card Bounty where the Courier must kill her and take her head back to Major Dhatri at Camp McCarran. The player character can kill her and take her head at any time during the game and given for a reward at any time but it cannot be dropped or placed in a container because it is a quest item. It is also possible to kill her dog Violetta and get its brain for the quest Nothin' But a Hound Dog.


Violet - She can be found at her camp just south of the Poseidon gas station. Beware she has lots of hostile dogs, while she normally shoots from in or on top of her caravan.


  • 50 caps for a damaged head
  • 250 caps for an intact head
  • NCR Fame


  • If the player character has the Animal Friend perk her dogs will not attack the Courier making the kill a lot easier.
  • If she is killed with a headshot the price of her bounty will decrease.
  • If the player character has the Bloody Mess perk it is possible that even with V.A.T.S. the head will explode or be damaged, decreasing the reward.
