Melinda (Fallout 3)
Amazing! Today I was approached by one of them. I've decided to call her "Melinda." I'm not actually sure if there's a way to establish gender, but Melinda moved in a way that appeared very feminine to me. She caught me off guard while I was checking water levels in the experimental basins. For a moment there, I wished I had taken that damned pistol Jason insisted upon me carrying. She grasped my arm, but instead of attacking, she appeared to sniff my arm where some of the scavenged resin I've been using to irradiate the basins had spilled on my suit. Moments later, she was gone. Must consider some way of tagging them.”— Day 58
Melinda was a feral ghoul mentioned in Isabella Proud's journal entries.
Isabella called her Melinda because she thought she was a girl as she walked very gracefully. She was friendly to Isabella and Jason because of the resin on their radiation suits. It is mentioned in Isabella's journal that she comes to meet her sometimes at the research camp and in another entry, mentions that she didn't come to meet her.
Melinda is mentioned only in Fallout 3.
