I'm Elise. That's Gond. We're members of a 'group' that's trying to do right for folks.

Chief Elise is the commander of the NCR Rangers in Fallout 2.


A beautiful young woman in combat clothes, Elise is used to giving out orders and projects an aura of confidence and lack of patience for nonsense and small talk.[1] She's got a no-nonsense air about her, as she's used to giving orders and having folks obey them.[2] Her experience and talents earned her the position of the leader of the NCR Rangers, a paramilitary group focused on the destruction of slavery throughout NCR territories and outside of them. Their efforts have already led to the banning of slavery in NCR proper, thanks to a lot of support from friends in high places.[3]

Her activity helped shape the Rangers and eventually organize them into an elite formation of the New California Republic military. In 2271, the now elderly Chief was one of the masterminds behind the Ranger Unification Treaty, orchestrating the merger between the Desert Rangers and the NCR Rangers.[4]

Notable quotes

  • "Well-met, fellow Ranger. Afraid there's not much for you to do around here at this time. Most our people are already out on patrol. I'll spread the word that you're one of us now. I wouldn't want you getting shot by one of us."

  3. The Chosen One: "{117}{}{Sounds interesting. Right in what way?}"
    Elise: "{157}{}{Simple. We believe slavery is wrong and we'll do what we must to fight it. In NCR, we got a lot of friends in high places. Thanks to them we've already banned slavery down south, but now we're hoping to spread the word north.}"

  5. The Courier: "How long have you been in the rangers?"
    Hanlon: "Oh, well. I guess it must be coming up on... forty years or so. Back before Elise was chief, anyway. It was a heck of a lot harder then. Weren't as many of us to go around. But I think it was a lot easier to tell the good guys from the bad."
