The world is getting better, but slowly. We need to make sure it doesn't relapse, too. It's going to take time and care, that's all.
Well -- time, care, and science!”
Kesha McDermott was a member of the Flatwoods Responders Outpost appearing in Fallout 76. Before the Great War, she was in Watoga coordinating a state-wide science fair for that year's high school kids. The theme was, "the Future of Energy!" After the bombs, she managed to get out of the city safely, scavenging for food, fighting off rabid survivors, and having a generally bad time. She managed to find a couple of surviving kids from the high school whose parents didn't make it, and they holed up in an old house for a while. After a while, she was able to solder the circuitry in an old radio and they tuned in to a broadcast from the Responders. Surviving the trip from Watoga to Flatwoods was difficult, and they were attacked by raiders on the way, who took their food and water. However, they survived, and the town was like a dream come true: Tents for everyone, open kitchens, medical supplies, protection - we were safe.
Noticing a problem with water purification, Kesha volunteered and created a testing kit for monitoring contamination, as well as teaching classes on how to make water pure and safe to drink.
They had a problem though: their water sources were contaminated heavily. People were boiling water, but not long enough to make it safe.
So I stepped up, I said: "I'll build a testing kit to monitor the contamination, and I'll teach folks how to properly boil water." And I did.
Kesha McDermott appears only in Fallout 76.
