Thank you for choosing wisdom over violence.

Mother Curie III is the leader of a small cult living in the Holy Light Monastery in Springvale in 2277.

Background[edit | edit source]

Mother Curie III is a former Child of Atom and Megaton local who took Megaton's entire Aqua Pura shipments and began irradiating it and distributing it as holy water to fulfill her perceived religious calling to spread radiation. She firmly believes that she is doing Atom’s will and helping the world grow, and they find that consecrated Aqua Pura is actually much more potent than any other “dirty water.” She has prepared a rich and varied history to read to her “flock.”[2]

In the basement of her newly adopted home, she preaches to a pair of ghouls, and in the lower part of the basement she stores vast amounts of Aqua Pura along with a pair of tame feral ghouls: a feral ghoul reaver named Atom's Champion and a glowing one named Sun of Atom.

Quests[edit | edit source]

  • Holy Water: The Lone Wanderer has the choice of persuading Curie to stop distributing the holy water to others, or stopping her by killing her and her followers.

Effects of player actions[edit | edit source]

  • Mother Curie III appears as a hostile feral ghoul reaver if Megaton is blown up after Broken Steel.
  • Although holding a .32 pistol, Mother Curie III is an extremely peaceful character, and does not become hostile if you killed Brother Gerard in order to enter the monastery, or even if you flat out tell her that you're going to wipe out her cult. If threatened, she simply states that she expected some form of religious persecution and that she refuses to respond to violence with violence. If you initiate combat against the Holy Light cult, Curie will simply cower and flee. Her feral ghoul reaver and glowing one followers, however, are not so forgiving and will attack.

    When a human transcends mortality and straddles the ether, they can be seen to be both living in the "real" and "spiritual" realm. Mother Curie III firmly believes her own son to have taken the final steps on this journey. In fact, much of her son's higher functions have disappeared, and only instinct is preventing this confused Glowing One from attacking."

    Overseeing the operation is Mother Curie, who believes firmly that she is doing Atom's will and helping the world grow, and they find that consecrated Aqua Pura is actually much more potent than any other "dirty water." She has prepared a rich and varied history to read to her "flock." Should you find her in her second state; she has received her greatest wish, as she bathed in the light of infinite candles, and reached a higher realm of consciousness. In fact, this worked so well, her mortal corpse has become a frothing, savage Ghoul with no knowledge of your previous interactions."
