Gametitle-VB.pngThe following is based on Van Buren and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

Ailis McLafferty is the owner and head exec of the Crimson Caravan company in Hoover Dam in 2253.


She saw the order to accompany Governor Joseph Dodge to Hoover Dam as an opportunity to expand her caravan empire. She puts on a great show of support for Dodge and his efforts, but she secretly wants him to fail. If he does, then she will seize the opportunity to take over Hoover and shape it into a town that would be the envy of the wasteland.

Part of her master plan is to work both sides of the BoS/NCR war. She is currently supplying weapons and ammunition to both the Brotherhood at Maxson's Bunker and the NCR at Hoover Dam. It is her hope that the war of attrition will eventually take its toll on Dodge and he will step down. Once this happens, she plans to make a supply run to Maxson's Bunker, assassinate Devon Hill, blow up the entrance to Maxson's, therefore trapping any survivors inside, and come back to Hoover Dam as the hero who ended the war. Lofty plans, to be sure, but she has full confidence in herself to pull it off. Corporate espionage seems to be her favorite past-time.
