Claudia (Fallout: New Vegas)
|For the Claudia mentioned in Fallout 3, see Claudia.|
Claudia was a prostitute of Two Sun.
Background[edit | edit source]
Raul Tejada had his eye on her when he wandered into Tucson, but he kept it to himself. One day, Dirty Dave and his six brothers came to town and massacred the brothel Claudia worked at and took her hostage. Raul came to her rescue and was deathly injured in the rescue, but Dirty Dave had already put a bullet in each of her eyes.
Appearances[edit | edit source]
Claudia is mentioned only in Fallout: New Vegas
- The Courier: "Why aren't you still there, then?"
Raul Tejada: "Getting there, boss. I'd been in Tuscon - the locals can call it Two-Sun all they want, but it's Tuscon, dammit - about 75 years when she showed up. Prettiest thing you ever saw, boss. Maybe it was just a trick of my senile brain, but I swear she looked just like my Rafaela. Her name was Claudia. She ended up taking work at one of the brothels in town. I never went to her, of course - how could I? But I looked after her in my own way."
(Raul Tejada's dialogue)
- The Courier: "What happened with her?"
Raul Tejada: "This was a long time ago. Before Caesar's Legion pacified Arizona and brought the raider tribes to heel. A tribe came into Tuscon one day - more a gang, really. Dirty Dave and his six brothers. They were looking for bullets, and I sold some to them. I figured if I did that, they'd leave town before they tore it up too much."
The Courier: "But they didn't, did they?"br/>Raul Tejada: "No, boss. No they didn't. As I was saying, I hoped they'd leave the town in peace. Instead, they decided to stop at Claudia's brothel to take the edge off. I don't know which one of them got rowdy first, but by the time I heard the screams and got my guns, it was too late. They'd shot up the brothel, killed four girls, and taken Claudia for their sport."
The Courier: "Did you rescue her?"
Raul Tejada: "I went after Dave and his brothers. They had a head start, but they slept nights. I didn't. Took me three days to catch up to them. Claudia was dead when I got there. They'd put a bullet in each of her eyes. I couldn't do anything except avenge her, just like Rafaela. I charged into the middle of their camp and started firing - two of them were dead before they knew I was there. The other five, though.... They shot the shit out of me. I would have died, I think, if I wasn't so full of rage."
