Proto id00000098 (Maida Buckner)

My name's Maida Buckner; I take care of trading and drinks here. I don't tolerate any tribals messing our family's place up. So you just better watch your step here, or you'll end up like Sulik. What do you want?

Maida Buckner is the proprietor of the Buckner House in Klamath in Fallout 2.


Maida is a plain looking, sturdily built young woman with a scowl on her face.[1] She tends the bar and trades with travelers, on top of other business affairs. Unlike her mother, she has a clear superiority complex, affirming her status as a civilized human, in contrast to the tribes living in the region.[2][3] Where this "civilization" originates from is unknown, although it's a fair assumption that she feels like that because she and others live in the reclaimed ruins of a pre-War town.
