Please, find my daughter!

Catherine is a worried mother who can be found at the Riverboat Landing in the Capital Wasteland in 2277.


Catherine apparently had an adventurous life before settling down in the Capital Wasteland with her daughter Nadine.[1] Her life took a turn when Nadine stowed away on the Duchess Gambit a couple weeks ago and was taken to Point Lookout.[2] Catherine's motherly intuition naturally led her to tell Nadine she could not go, but it was only a matter of time before the scamp disobeyed and stowed away.[3][4] Catherine has never been to Point Lookout and has no idea what to expect, so she is understandably anxious to get her daughter back into her arms.[5]

  • After returning from Point Lookout while Nadine is in control of the Duchess Gambit, Catherine will sometimes enter the ferry's engine room.
  • Catherine doesn't have any specific interaction with her daughter, and they don't speak much after their reunion.


Catherine appears only in the Fallout 3 add-on Point Lookout.

  1. The Lone Wanderer: "I talked to your daughter, but she says she can't come back yet."
    Catherine: "That sounds like her. Too busy having her adventures to think about family. Like mother, like daughter."
    (Catherine's dialogue (Point Lookout))
  2. Catherine: "You! Are you going to Point Lookout? I need your help! My daughter stowed away on the Duchess Gambit a few weeks ago, and I've been worried sick ever since. I haven't heard anything from her, but if you're going there, could you look for her? Please, I'll do anything to help!"
    (Catherine's dialogue (Point Lookout))
  3. The Lone Wanderer: "What can you tell me about your daughter?"
    Catherine: "She's about your age, and when she left, her hair was dyed bright orange. You shouldn't have any problem recognizing her. She told me she wanted to go find her fortune, but I thought it was too dangerous. I should've known better than to say that. Moment I told her she couldn't go, it was just a matter of time before she ran off..."
    (Catherine's dialogue (Point Lookout))
  4. Fallout 3 Official Game Guide Game of the Year Edition p.65: "Catherine
    Nadine's mother is very caring, if somewhat overprotective. Catherine lives near Rivet City, and asks you to look for her daughter. Nadine was always a headstrong girl, and the first to bag a live Mirelurk hatchling, but Catherine fears her little mite doesn't have the experience to survive in the open wilderness."
    (Fallout 3 Official Game Guide Game of the Year Edition Wasteland Census)
  5. The Lone Wanderer: "Any idea where Nadine might be?"
    Catherine: "I've never even been to Point Lookout, so I wouldn't know. She just said she was going to go find her fortune there. She could be anyplace! But I do remember her talking about that Punga Fruit, and how valuable it'd be to grow here. Maybe she'll be someplace it grows?"
    (Catherine's dialogue (Point Lookout))
