Longing makes the heart grow fonder, but I've always been a fan of hog-tying my lovers to make sure they can’t escape.

Beatrix Russell is a ghoul who works as a guard for the Followers of the Apocalypse. She is found in the Old Mormon Fort in Freeside in the year 2281.


Beatrix Russell is a gun-for-hire, currently employed by the doctors of the Followers of the Apocalypse. In her long life, she's experienced a lot of human nature, and finds that "physical and mental anguish are especially exciting to explore". She enjoys drinking, which is ironic since the Followers at the Fort work to help addicts recover from drugs and alcohol. Partly because the Followers won't allow her to drink, she finds her job at the Fort a bit dull.

  • "Good, bad... The guy with the gun makes the rules."
  • "Time you enjoy wasting isn’t wasted time."
  • "The only thing I know for certain is that I don’t know nothing."
  • "Longing makes the heart grow fonder, but I’ve always been a fan of hog-tying my lovers to make sure they can’t escape."


Beatrix Russell appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.

Behind the scenes

  • The pieces of advice she remarks are all adaptations of famous quotes from philosophers or alternate takes on famous Phrases. For example, "Time you enjoy wasting isn't wasted time." This quote was said by Bertrand Russell, a British author, mathematician, & philosopher of a similar name. And "The only thing I know for certain is that I don't know nothing." Originally said by Socrates, another philosopher, "One thing only I know, and that is that I know nothing."
  • Another piece of advice she will give you is "Good, bad... The guy with the gun makes the rules." This is a loose reference to a line Ashley Williams says in Army of Darkness, "Good, bad... I'm the guy with the gun."


  • PCIcon pc.png Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png PlayStation 3Icon ps3.png Sometimes when you pay her for sex she won't get off of the chair and won't move, which means having intercourse with her is impossible. This seems to occur after you've completed Debt Collector and have been given a free room at the Atomic Wrangler. Exiting the atomic wrangler, and reentering can fix this problem.
  • PCIcon pc.png Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png She will follow you to your room after being paid for sex but then simply stand by the bed. There are no dialogue options offered to try to fix this, but if you look at the bed and select sleep, then exit once it asks you how long you want to sleep, she will be on the bed.
    • You can run into her from behind to push her towards the bed. After a few pushes she will finally get in the bed.
