Captain Marie Pappas is a Californian head officer of the NCR military police serving at the NCR Embassy in New Vegas in Fallout: New Vegas.


She is found at the NCR Embassy on the New Vegas Strip. She is either in a bunk or walking around the embassy. She is unfriendly to you when she first sees you but you can ask her about Jake Erwin, The Strip or herself. Her responses are curt. She is also the only NCR officer that carries a gun on The Strip.

Interactions overview

This character is involved in quests.


  • How Little We Know: The Courier can report a murder at the Gomorrah casino, and show her Clanden's Snuff Tapes as evidence of the crime. However, there does not seem to be any way to pursue this line of investigation any further, as the player is unable to identify Clanden as the man on the tapes.

Notable quotes

  • "People drink, gamble, and fight. What do you think happens on the Strip? Any other intelligent questions?"


Marie Pappas appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.



  1. The Courier: GREETING
    NCR Trooper: "I bet it feels real nice to be carrying those weapons around on the strip. That damn Mr. House has forbid any NCR military personnel from carrying any sort of firearms on the Strip. Well, except for Captain Pappas. Mr. House still doesn't trust the NCR. A word of advice, the Securitrons won't put up with any funny stuff out there, so don't do anything stupid. This your first time on the Strip?"
