What? I only talk to Captain Curtis over at McCarran. I would never work with slavers. Honest.

Martina Groesbeck is a "professional" gambler and informant living on the New Vegas Strip in 2281.

[edit] Background

Hailing from New California, Martina came to New Vegas to strike it rich as a professional gambler. However, thing didn't quite go as planned for on the professional part only to lose most of her money. After failing that, she started doing odd jobs, mostly for Sarah Weintraub in keeping Vault 21 clean and tidy, to make a living.[1]

Her biggest score yet, though, is the spot she landed as Captain Ronald Curtis' informant, hanging around casinos (and unknowingly gathering intel for Caesar's Legion).[2] Martina doesn't break in or sneak through anywhere. No, she just listens. Listens very carefully and memorizes what people talk about. And there's a lot of it. Enough to get her marked for death by the Omertas and currently hiding out in her hotel room in Vault 21.[3]

[edit] Notable quotes

  • "[What do you do around here?] I do odd jobs here and there, usually helping Sarah keep the Vault tidy. I came to New Vegas to be a professional gambler. Too bad for me that the "professional" part isn't working out so good. But, I love gambling, so I'm here to stay on the Strip until they kick me out."
  • "[You work with the NCR? It was the Legion who sent me to protect you.] What? I only talk to Captain Curtis over at McCarran. I would never work with slavers. Honest."
  • "[Why were the Omertas out to kill you?] I... may have overheard some things at Gomorrah that I passed on to the NCR. That's all! Honest."
  • "[So, you're a spy.] No! Well, not really. I mean, I'm not listening through doors or sneaking around or anything. People talk out loud, and I just pay attention. The NCR likes to keep tabs on the activities of the families, and they pay me good caps to hang around the casinos and keep my ears open."
  • "[Dangerous work.] It isn't normally. The NCR wanted me to just gamble and listen, nothing else."
