Keep it up, Dad, and you'll NEED a wrench to get my boot out of your ass.

Valerie is the brown headed child of Vic the trader, living in Vault City in 2241.


She works as the town's primary repairwoman. Unlike most citizens, she isn't a bigot, but has an attitude and short temper, more often than not leading to conflicts with other citizens, in particular those responsible for supplying her workshop. She doesn't have a particular focus, just repairs whatever needs fixing in the city, from laser turret parts through terminal elements to firearms.

Her father, Vic, conceived her with a Vault City citizen in 2221, when he arrived in the city on one of the caravans. In the following years, he visited her on and off, until he stopped coming in 2236. The benefit of being born of a citizen was that Valerie automatically became a citizen herself. Her mother died sometime between 2236 and 2241 of radiation poisoning due to drinking unfiltered water from the courtyard well.
