Nora is the wife of Nate, living in Sanctuary Hills in 2077. She is the template for creating a female character.



A Juris Doctor graduate of the Suffolk County School of Law,[1] Nora married Nate and had a son, Shaun, within a year of the war. On October 23, 2077, a Vault-Tec salesman spoke to the family and confirmed their spot in Vault 111. Fortunately, he arrived in the nick of time: moments later, a newscaster reported that nuclear detonations had been confirmed in the United States, and warned the Boston area of the looming destruction. Nate, Nora and Shaun, along with all those who had signed up for Vault residency, all rushed to Vault 111 and become trapped above the Vault as a warhead, launched by the Yangtze-31, hit the region.

Out of time

Upon arrival in the Vault, Nora was ushered into a Vault 111 jumpsuit, and into a "decontamination chamber". In reality, Vault 111 was a Vault-Tec experiment to study the long term effects of suspended animation on unaware subjects.[2] Although the staff mutinied and the Vault was left abandoned for decades, Nate, Nora, and Shaun were unfrozen in 2227 by one Conrad Kellogg, under the orders of The Institute.

Death (optional)

Despite a short struggle, Nate/Nora was shot dead by Kellogg and left in their cryo-chamber to rot, leaving the survivor spouse-less.[3]

Welcome Home

After leaving Vault 111, they returned to their former abode, finding their robot, Codsworth, left in his perceptual jovial state for the last 210 years. After quickly searching the neighborhood, Codsworth recommends Concord as the next best place to find Shaun.
