Joana is a prostitute living in the Gomorrah Casino in Fallout: New Vegas.


Joana is a prostitute who can be found dancing in the Courtyard of Gomorrah or in her room just off the second floor of the courtyard. She is a Med-X addict, using it to deal with the loss of her lover Carlitos Wayne and sexual abuse by the Omerta lieutenant, Cachino.

Despite her inner turmoil, she is billed as 'the hottest ass on the Strip', both within Gomorrah and throughout Vegas, and is one of only two of the prostitutes in Gomorrah that can actually be solicited.

  • Bye Bye Love: In one of the endings of the quest, she will join her long lost lover Carlitos.
  • How Little We Know: If she survives Bye Bye Love, she will inform you that there is something going on in the Gomorrah, and start the quest How Little We Know; provided you are not involved in this quest already.

Other interactions

  • Joana will give the option to have sex with her, in her room for the price of 100 bottle caps, as well as during two side quests: Bye Bye Love where you help Carlitos Wayne to help Joana escape Gomorrah and the Omertas and during How Little We Know where Joana will tell the Courier of Cachino and his plan.
  • With a high enough Medicine score (50) you can call her out on her addiction and initiate her quest, Bye Bye Love. Alternatively, if you wait one or two more dialogue choices, an option to do another speech check, score (75), and you can ask her what her problem is and she will give you her quest if you continue the dialogue.
