Bess is a brahmin found dead at the Chestnut Hillock Reservoir.


Bess was Edwin's brahmin, he had spent some time away from the house beside the reservoir travelling with Bess. They first arrived on the evening of 9/7/2287, by the 12th Edwin noted Bess was settling in well. Soon after, bloatflies began harassing Bess; Edwin chased them off and made a bug zapper to keep them away but it wasn't enough to hold back the more resilient insects that spooked Bess.[1] By the time the Sole Survivor arrives it is apparent she could not withstand or escape the attacks.
