Interactions with the player character

Interactions overview

This character is involved in quests.


  • Nothin' But a Hound Dog: Lupa is among the choices of canines to retrieve a brain for Rex. To get her brain the Courier has to talk to Antony to arrange a fight with her in the arena, or the player could just kill her out right and make every legionary hostile.

Effects of the player's actions

  • After her death in the arena, Legion troops all around The Fort mention her "dying well" in combat.

Drops on death


  • Unlike other Legion mongrels, Lupa has a slight Damage threshold of 4.
  • When sitting next to Antony in the fort, she has a normal mongrel HP of 40, but when fighting her in the arena, she has a full 200.
  • Like other mongrels, if you are wearing a Legion disguise, she can and will sniff you out and alert the camp.
  • You actually gain Legion fame for killing Lupa, if you do so by fighting her in the arena. This is because you gave her an honorable death (and, arguably, a measure of immortality by incorporating her memories into Rex).

Behind the scenes

  • Lupa literally means "female wolf" in Latin.
  • Lupa is the name of the wolf who raised Romulus and Remus in Roman mythology.


Lupa appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.



  1. The Courier: "Nice dog."
    Antony: "Lupa? Yes, she's the mother of a lot of our best dogs. She's getting old, but she's still a tough old bitch. Aren't you, girl?"
