Behind the scenes[]


The charismatic leader of the Servants of the Mushroom Cloud, Charmaine is said to be the most beautiful woman in the Wasteland. Many come for her allure and stay for the strange teachings that venerate the atom and its attendant radiation above all else. Charmaine is an enigma, even to the people in her own church, who claim that a holy purple glow envelops her when she speaks.

Her part in the story of the Desert Rangers is brief but instrumental. It was with her help that Team Alpha gained access to the sewers where they found Max, who led them to Cochise. Little of known of Charmaine's activities afterward, for, soon after the defeat of the AI, clouds of radiation cut off the Desert Rangers from Vegas, a situation that persists to this day.
