You need water? I got water, clean and fresh, straight from Lake Mead. If you're low on caps, I've also got slightly irradiated wasteland water. A little fallout never killed anybody.”
Lupe is a merchant at the Grub n' Gulp rest stop in Fallout: New Vegas.
Background[edit | edit source]
Lupe is a pleasant woman, selling water at the GnG. She co-founded the place with Fitz and is a fully licensed NCR water merchant, which means she can legally draw water from the NCR pipeline from Lake Mead. She doesn't have a steady stream of customers; caravans and NCR patrols seldom stop for water, but wanderers show up a few times a week. It doesn't help that most water trafficking is kept without organized outfits, leaving independent suppliers on their own.
Aside from selling water, Lupe knows a fair deal about the surrounding wasteland, providing information about New Vegas, the New California Republic and the Fiends and the reputation of each. She is also open about where one can stock up on non-water supplies and can point them to medical attention.

Appearances[edit | edit source]
Lupe appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
- The Courier: "Where do you get your water?"
Lupe: "The NCR fixed up the pipe network pretty good, and water merchants like me are allowed to have some of it to sell. If we have a water license, of course. Still, it beats the inconvenience of having to trek all the way to the lake to resupply."
- The Courier: "Do you get a lot of customers?"
Lupe: "The caravans or NCR patrols usually don't stop, but we usually get people like yourself wandering on by a few times a week."
- The Courier: "Are there many water merchants around here?"
Lupe: "There's a few independent ones like me, but it's mostly the big trading outfits that deal in water, like the Crimson Caravan Company."
- The Courier: "Anything I should know about New Vegas?"
Lupe: "They won't just let anybody into the Strip, but you should be able to have a good time in Freeside itself. Just, uh, keep a close eye on your caps."
The Courier: "What do you know about the NCR?"
Lupe: "Their main base is right over there by the old airport - it's called Camp McCarran now. Some people like to paint 'em all as a bunch of bullies. Me, I'm glad they're around. They do what they can to keep things safe and orderly."
The Courier: "Tell me about the Fiends."
Lupe: "They're a bunch of crazies hopped up on all kind of drugs. Apparently, they're using one of the old vaults as a hideout. The army should really get in there and wipe 'em all out, but I guess they've got more than enough trouble to deal with right now."
- The Courier: "Who sells equipment around here?"
Lupe: "The Crimson Caravan Company's the big dog around here. Keep following the road north and you'll eventually come across their camp."
The Courier: "Know where I can find a doctor?"
Lupe: "I'm pretty sure they've got a doc over at Camp McCarran, but I don't know if he'll treat just anybody."
