Love the optimism, but my ticket's punched. I think I can go easy knowing someone's going to take out those Blood Eagles. Make better choices than I did.— Woods before her death

Corporal Woods is a mercenary and member of the Hellcat Company.


Woods was part of the mercenary company hired by Doctor Edgar Blackburn to guard Vault 96,[1] and to kidnap new subjects for the doctor.[2] She and her squad were stationed at the vault's entrance when it was overrun by Blood Eagles,[3] leaving her struggling with a fatal gutshot.[4]

When the Vault Dweller finds her, she is fully aware that she is about to die,[5] and shows remorse over her actions while under contract with the doctor.[6] As the Vault Dweller says goodbye to her, she wishes for them to "put some bullets in those Blood Eagles,"[7] and also tells them to "give them hell," before she finally succumbs to her wounds.[8]

  1. Vault Dweller: "Who are you?"
    Corporal Woods: "Name's Woods. Corporal Woods, Hellcat Company. Mercenaries. We got hired by this creep of a doctor to guard the place...among other things. Promised us salvage rights here when he was done. Don't think we're gonna collect on that."
    (Corporal Woods' dialogue)
  2. FEV research log #112
  3. Vault Dweller: "What happened here?"
    Corporal Woods: "Our squad was guarding the entrance here when we were overrun by Blood Eagles. Killed everyone. Me, too. I just haven't kicked it yet."
    (Corporal Woods' dialogue)
  4. Vault Dweller: "How'd a mercenary squad get overrun by Blood Eagles?"
    Corporal Woods: "Our own fault. We got lazy. This place is so far out of the way, nobody ever passes by. Kind of the point. We figured we'd be shooing off the occasional stray scavenger that came poking around. This lot sent grenades through the entrance before we knew they were there. Rushed us while we were recovering. I took a bullet in the gut. Bastards left me to die slowly, because they thought it was funny."
    (Corporal Woods' dialogue)
  5. Vault Dweller: "There must be something I can do to help you."
    Corporal Woods: "That's kind, but it's a little late for that. I've seen enough gutshots in my time to know a stimpak and bandages aren't going to fix this. This one's got my name on it. God knows I've done enough to deserve it."
    (Corporal Woods' dialogue)
  6. Vault Dweller: "Doctor? What was going on here?"
    Corporal Woods: "Yeah. Blackburn. Real unnerving guy, even before we found out what he was doing. Kidnapping was just the start of it. We should've cut ties then, contract or no. Even mercs should have lines they don't cross. I'd say I didn't have a choice, but we're mercenaries. We do it for the money, not some noble ideal. Nobody to blame but ourselves."
    (Corporal Woods' dialogue)
  7. Vault Dweller: "You made your choices, Woods. Goodbye."
    Corporal Woods: "You're not wrong. I guess I deserve that. Hope you'll put some bullets in those Blood Eagles when I'm gone."
    (Corporal Woods' dialogue)
  8. Corporal Woods: "I'm fading fast, kid. Think this is it. Those damn Blood Eagles are still inside. Give 'em hell for me."
    (Corporal Woods' dialogue)
