I've been with Doctor Li for about ten years now. She needed an assistant, and I needed something to do. It was either this or wind up dead in a ditch someplace, y'know?

— Janice Kaplinski, about why her story in Rivet City.

Janice Kaplinski is the chief botanist[1] working together with Doctor Madison Li and Anna Holt in the Rivet City science lab in Fallout 3.

Background[edit | edit source]

The only thing 29-year-old Janice loves more than her hydroponic plants is Doctor Li. It’s a case of classic hero worship. Janice is utterly loyal to her and completely believes in the projects they are working on. She is a very accomplished scientist but lacks that vital spark of genius and ambition that James and Doctor Li have, but she is their equal in technical knowledge. She is close friends with Doctor Preston, who treats her like the daughter he never had.[2] She has been working for Doctor Li since 2267, Li needing an assistant and Janice needing a career.[3] As a botanist, she puts her skills to work to help find ways of creating non-irradiated food sources by conducting experiments in hydroponics.

Daily schedule[edit | edit source]

Janice conducts hydroponics experiments with the help of Doctor Li and Anna Holt.
