Emergent Behavior is a quest in Fallout 4.


Curie wants to become human, or as close to it as she can better pursue her studies. The Sole Survivor needs to find an expert; a brain surgeon, an AI programmer, or similar.


  • Gain enough loyalty with Curie until it opens up. The robot will express the desire to be ported into a human body, if possible.
  • Head to Goodneighbor and talk to Doctor Amari. She will suggest that a robotic mind like Curie's can be downloaded into a third generation synth, thanks to their brain, bridging human and robotic minds. She does, in fact, have a spare synth around: G5-19's mind did not survive the process of wiping her memories for the Railroad, resulting in a perfectly functional shell that simply lacks a working mind.
  • Amari will request a 24 hour waiting period to contact the synth's caretaker, Glory. Glory will be resistant to the procedure, but can be persuaded to part with her (by stating the obvious, her friend is already dead, or emphasizing her ability to still help another).
  • Afterwards, it's a simple matter of watching the download procedure and talking to Curie upon completion (and equipping it, or rather, her, with some new gear).

Quest stages

100 Find someone to help CurieCurie wants to become human, or as close to it as she can better pursue her studies. We need to find an expert; a brain surgeon, an AI programmer, or similar.
150 Bring Curie to Doctor AmariIf Curie seriously wants to become human the logical person to help is Doctor Amari. With her expertise with the memory pods and Synths, perhaps Curie could get her wish.
200 Wait for Doctor AmariDoctor Amari's memory operations don't always go well. There's a brain dead Synth that may be a good host for Curie. Doctor Amari needs time to contact the Synth's caretaker.
300 Talk to the caretakerG5-19's caretaker has arrived. I need to convince her that she should donate G5's body to Curie.
400 Watch the download procedureWith consent granted, Doctor Amari is ready to download Curie into G5-19. Hopefully the procedure will work successfully.
500 Talk to CurieThe operation appears successful. I should talk with Curie to make sure it's really her and she's healthy.
600Quest finishedIncredibly, Curie has been downloaded into a Synth body. This is obviously going to be a major adjustment for her. She'll need me more than ever.
