Martha Cole was a denizen of University Point and one of its most annoying inhabitants. Martha had a tendency towards aggressive gossiping and chewing out people she saw as lacking. When Jacqueline Spencer inadvertently attracted the attention of the Institute, she was involved in spreading vicious rumors that the Institute demanded the town's children in tribute. Both a perpetrator and victim of said rumor, her paranoia got the better of her. She viciously attacked both Jacqueline and Gerald Spencer in private, via email. Accusing him of failing as a father and espousing the virtues of domestic violence. Apparently, beating Jacqueline like Martha did her own sons helps?
Martha Cole is mentioned only in Fallout 4.
