is a town founded in 2142
by one of the groups that left Vault 15
, led by the father of Aradesh
. It's located between Vault 13
to the west and Vault 15 to the east. In 2161
it was small but self-sufficient farming community (they have their own irrigation system used to grow their own food), led by Aradesh. They had trouble with radscorpions
and the three groups of raiders
formed by other Vault 15 residents - Khans
. They were eventually helped by a stranger called the Vault Dweller
, who rescued Tandi
, Aradesh's daughter when she was kidnapped by the Khans.
