Background[edit | edit source]
An elderly woman from Quincy, Mama Murphy has a long history of Jet abuse. Fortunately, or unfortunately, the Jet ended up altering her brain chemistry and awakened latent psyker powers, mainly an ability that she calls "the Sight", which she uses to read people and make psychic predictions. Due to the fact that she needs to take chems in order to trigger the Sight and even asks for the chems as payment, she has a reputation of being seen as a junkie using the "mystical psychic act" as a means of feeding her habit. Mama Murphy is also known to make up elaborate stories about her accomplishments, such as that she killed a deathclaw with a single shot from a pipe pistol. Jun Long has requested the she use her powers to communicate with his deceased son Kyle Long, but she claims that the Sight has limits; with talking to the dead being one of them.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
- Mama Murphy is based on the numerous psychics that musician-actress Cyndi Lauper has portrayed in films and on TV, even emulating Lauper's unique way of speaking.
- Mama Murphy: "One time I killed a Deathclaw all by myself, no power armor and fancy minigun, just a pipe pistol...and one bullet."
- Jun Long: "Mama Murphy, can we talk?"
Mama Murphy: "I know what you're gonna ask me, Jun. I've seen it. And there's nothing I can do for ya."
Jun Long: "But... You have the Sight... It has to be able to..."
Mama Murphy: "It can't talk to the dead, kid. Even the Sight has limits. I'm sorry."
