This is not acceptable. No self-respecting soldier of Utobitha should ever be seen running like a scared little human.

Tabitha, also referred to as "Best Friend Tabitha," is the leader of the State of Utobitha and radio host at Black Mountain in 2281.


Tabitha is a former commander of the Unity nightkin. Following the fall of the Master, she and her kin wandered the wasteland for over a century.[需要引证] In the course of her travels, she found a Mister Handy designated Rhonda, who became her constant companion and aide. She was responsible for saving several super mutants from suffering at human hands, including Mean Sonofabitch back in New California.[2]

The mutants arrived at Black Mountain around 2275.[需要引证] Although her Stealth Boy-induced dissociative personality disorder was kept stable by Rhonda, the Mister Handy suffered catastrophic damage at Black Mountain and went into hibernation mode.[3] Her state deteriorated over time. Marcus attempted to distract her with a journal project, however, the plan backfired when Tabitha realized the terminal was part of the radio station at Black Mountain and would allow her to broadcast her own words on the airwaves.[4][5] Within a week of fixing the radio and entering the radio business, her personality split into Tabitha and ersatz-Rhonda, convincing the second-generation super mutants she was a prophet.[6] Gentle attempts to coax her out of the radio building failed.[7]

The situation only deteriorated from there. As the nightkin and second-generation mutants clashed with Marcus' fellow first generation super mutants, he found himself unable to broker a peace. Rather than aggravate the conflict, he chose to leave and found another community in 2279.[8][9] This left Tabitha free to implement her utopian project: The State of Utobitha, complete with its own radio station, broadcasting a rather peculiar (insane and rambling) radio message throughout the wasteland, once the radio transmitter that Marcus smashed on his way out was repaired.[10] Raul Tejada was instrumental in restoring the radio. The ghoul mechanic from Mexico was captured by the nightkin and used as a slave to repair anything and everything around the complex, under the constant threat of execution. Of course, it was always delayed by 24 hours in order to have him fix up whatever was broken at the time.[11][12][13]

With Black Mountain Radio on the air again, Tabitha began broadcasting to the ears of anyone with a radio and started a 24/7 broadcast of anti-human propaganda. Unsurprisingly, this has fully worked against Tabitha's best efforts, and it is now common opinion among Mojave wastelanders that static would be better listening than Black Mountain's current block of programming.[14] Raul's repairs however could not fix Black Mountain Radio’s former broadcast range, and thus it could only broadcast to the immediate surrounding area of the Mojave Wasteland.[15]

Super sledge Tabitha's equipment key
Tabitha's room key


  • Tabitha has left a note entitled treasure hunt in the storage building on Black Mountain. The contents listed can be found throughout the room.
  • According to references in the GECK, Tabitha may have been known as "Bridget" at some point during development.
  • If Rhonda is repaired, even though Tabitha leaves, her radio program continues to play until the player character enters her room. It is only then replaced by static.
  • Her terminal in the lower level of where she is found states that she hides a key under the stairs located out the back door, which can be used to unlock her door.
  • If the player character frees Raul and escapes Tabitha's ambush, Tabitha will endlessly pursue them. If the quest Crazy, Crazy, Crazy is still active, Tabitha and her movements will be visible on the map.
  • Even before meeting Tabitha, the radio provides information about the events occurring at Black Mountain. At one point, Raul will slip up and almost call the "Rhonda" personality Tabitha. At another point, Tabitha will say "I still miss you, Rhonda, after all these years," when talking to Rhonda. An angry Rhonda also sounds exactly like Tabitha while yelling that humans should "stay the hell away." When fighting her, she may talk in her Rhonda voice.
  • Tabitha lacks the 30% Damage Resistance possessed by most other nightkin enemies.
  • She references Caesar's Legion as the "battle cattle" and the NCR as "two-headed bear people," because of their respective flags.
    • "Battle Cattle" may also be referring to brahmin and that Tabitha is simply delusional about them being a threat, given that one of her rants refers to "two-head bear people astride battle cattles."
    • This may also mean that the NCR was chasing the Legion towards Black Mountain and was seen by the crazy nightkin as the "Bear People" riding the "Battle Cattle."
  • If Rhonda is repaired, the robot and Tabitha will walk down the mountain, taking the shortcut under the broken pylon and down the man-trapped path. They will pass through the first checkpoint, guarded by a hostile super mutant, and will disappear at the point where the road turns towards Neil's shack.
  • Her "true eyes" and "head of true hair" cannot be looted upon her death.

Notable quotes


Tabitha appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.

Behind the scenes

  • According to Mikey Dowling, before recording dialogue for Tabitha and Rhonda, voice actor Fred Tatasciore silently read through the entire script once before declaring that he was ready. He then read the script from top to bottom, "effortlessly" flowing in and out of both characters, making it one of Obsidian's favorite recording sessions.[17]
  • Before the game's release, an article in Official Xbox Magazine suggested that Tabitha was a male pretending to be a woman out of insanity.[需要引证] Developers stated that both Tabitha and Lily Bowen used to be human women.[1]


  1. 1.0 1.1 Joshua Sawyer on Something Awful: "Lily and Tabitha were human women before they were super mutants."
  2. The Courier: "Do you know how he got away from the NCR?"
    Klamath Bob: "Turned out some of them "Night Kids" - whatever you call those sneaky Super Mutant types - got in and busted him out. I guess somebody named "Tabitha" led the bunch that freed him. Don't know much more than that."
    (Klamath Bob's dialogue)
  3. Rhonda: "Thank you very much. My internal clock says it's been 6 years, 52 days, 40 minutes, and 13 seconds since I last spoke to her."
  4. Black Mountain terminal entries; terminal, Marcus made me type this!
  5. Black Mountain terminal entries; terminal, It's a radio station!
  6. Courier: "How did Tabitha end up in control?"
    Neil: "For years, Black Mountain was a peaceful community. Its leader, Marcus, broadcast an invitation to Mutants throughout the wasteland. That's how I found Black Mountain. So did others, most of them second generation Mutants. Marcus welcomed everyone - that was his mistake. The community ended up being mostly second gen - not very bright, but easy to influence. Fine, until the Nightkin came along, led by Tabitha... In a week she had most of the second-gens thinking she was some kind of prophet - and that she should be broadcasting her "truth," not Marcus. Marcus saw what was coming and decided to leave before things got out of hand. He smashed the radio and left to found Jacobstown."
    (Neil's dialogue)
  7. Black Mountain terminal entries; terminal, On the air!
  8. Black Mountain terminal entries; terminal, The elite!
  9. The Courier: "What makes this a "dangerous place?""
    Neil: "You must've heard her radio broadcasts? Though why a human would follow her invitation here is beyond me... unless you didn't listen very closely. The voice on the radio belongs to Tabitha, the "supreme commander" of Black Mountain - or, as she calls it, the "State of Utobitha." She took control of this place almost two years ago. The Super Mutants here do whatever she says - and she says humans are to be killed on sight."
    (Neil's dialogue)
  10. Black Mountain terminal entries; terminal, Alone at last!
  11. Black Mountain terminal entries; terminal, Safe!
  12. Black Mountain terminal entries; terminal, Lucky!
  13. The Courier: "You say Marcus smashed the radio. Not very well, apparently?"
    Neil: "Heh. There's a sad story behind that. Marcus smashed it just fine, but while we were gone some Ghoul named Raul came along. Tabitha turned him into her personal mechanic. A slave, really. See, if I'd been standing down here, I could've warned him before it was too late."
    (Neil's dialogue)
  14. Mr. New Vegas: "Listeners have been unable to pick up radio broadcasts from Black Mountain recently. Most are calling the static, quote, a welcome improvement."
    (Mr. New Vegas' dialogue)
