We started this group after seeing that bloodshed still ruled the land. There seemed to be no hope left. Man can't live without hope.
— Nicole

Nicole is the founder and leader of the Followers of the Apocalypse in Fallout.


Having seen great misery and suffering in her life, Nicole refused to give into bitterness and disillusionment. She responded to hardship with challenge: She founded the Followers of the Apocalypse, a pacifist group dedicated to spreading knowledge, peace, and convincing people to shy away from violence. As their spiritual leader, she guides the Followers to a better future, but remains acutely aware of the harsh reality of the wastelands.[1]

That awareness was shaped by her experiences. She grew up near San Diego and the Great Glow. As sickness spread through her community, the people migrated north.[2] That prompted the foundation of the Followers, to stop the senseless violence and killing.[3] Although the philosophy is a hard sell in a reality where violence seems the easier path take, she and the Followers don't give up hope.

The most important opponent of the Followers by 2161 is not misery or death, but the Children of the Cathedral. Nicole suspects that something is amiss with the cult, her distrust fueled by reports of the nightkin and Morpheus' wrongdoing. She even managed to plant a spy in the cult, to expose their hidden face.[1]

Query Response
Morpheus Morpheus is the leader of the Children of the Cathedral. He is evil, and that fact must be exposed.
Nicole There's not much to tell.
Laura Laura is one of our insiders within the Cathedral. She's extremely loyal to our cause.
Jake Jake is second in command.
Library In here, you'll find historical texts and philosophical texts...almost anything. Feel free to look around.
God The Children of the Cathedral worship him. They say he only wants to heal humanity, but that's a lie.
Master I've heard very little about him.
Nightkin They're the personal servants of Morpheus. They're huge, hulking creatures. Ugh!
Cathedral You've probably seen their hospitals around. They preach peace, but there is something wrong with them. We need to find out what.
Adytum It's a small settlement. You'll find it to the west in the Boneyard.
Angel's, Angels, Boneyard Before the Great War, this was a huge, thriving city. My mother told stories, but there's hardly anything left now. Just ruins and death.
Followers Our history is in the last case, top shelf.
War Everything was burned, everything destroyed. We try to teach people peace, so that it will never happen again.
Hub That's the trading city to the north. We're trying to set up a table there.
Brotherhood, Steel We're not sure about them. They sell guns, we sell peace. But their motives...

Nicole appears only in Fallout as a talking head.



  1. 1.0 1.1 Fallout Official Survival Guide p.103: "Nicole: Spiritual Leader of the Followers
    Nicole is head of the Followers of the Apocalypse, a group of pacifists who, despite their beliefs, are enemies of the Children of the Cathedral. She is a serene and spiritual person who tends to ramble a bit, but who believes in her group, and in their plan to make the world a better place with their message of peace and nonviolence.
    She may hold a philosophy of nonviolence, but Nicole hates the Children of the Cathedral, whom she believes to be evil. She has seen Morpheus and the Nightkin, and believes the hospitals and good works are a sham-a cover for something dark and malevolent."
    "She is also a good source of information about things in the LA area."

    Nicole: "{217}{Nic_37}{We lived on the outskirts of the Great Glow. Sickness had started spreading, so we gathered all the people and we made our way north. [Sigh] That's when my parents were killed.}"
  3. The Vault Dweller: "{194}{}{So, you started the Followers of the Apocalypse?}"
    Nicole: "{196}{Nic_31}{After my parents were killed by a marauders, [sigh] it was time the killing stopped. It's our goal to make this land the way it used to be, before the war.}"
