Gametitle-VB.pngThe following is based on Van Buren and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

Frieda Van Graff is the owner and operator of Frieda's Firearms store in Hoover Dam in 2253.


Frieda is not originally from Hoover Dam. She hails from Redding, and was born into the Van Graff family. She was born to Tiaret Van Graff, and is the sister of prisoner Jean-Baptiste Cutting. She does not know very much about her half-brother, except for that he turned up missing a few years ago.

Frieda is attractive, but she is very hard, like an old bar-fly. She doesn't take any crap from anyone and would just as soon shoot you as to serve you. She expects a courteous customer, and if she doesn't feel respected, she refuses to do business until the customer changes their ways.[1]
