Everything here is guaranteed to injure, maim, or kill at your discretion. Except me. I only kill when I want to.

KL-E-0 (or Kleo) is a friendly assaultron merchant in 2287.

BackgroundEdit

KL-E-0 is an assaultron with female AI that resides in Goodneighbor and acts as a merchant. She owns the store Kill or Be Killed which is located directly next to Daisy's Discounts. She sells Partystarter, a unique missile launcher.

If KL-E-0's terminal is hacked, it is revealed that she has a contingency to kill several members of the Goodneighbor community, if the need arises.

Her plan to eliminate the Neighborhood Watch is to wait for a super mutant or raider attack, planting high explosives at key areas of the defensive perimeter, and post detonation, relocating immediately due to Goodneighbor's vulnerability.

KL-E-0 has a contingency plan in case her original plan fails:

  • Shoot Daisy with a laser from long range, as she is too close to Kill or Be Killed to outright assault her without raising suspicion.
  • Sneak into Bobbi No-Nose's hideout at night, dismantle the lights and then kill the occupants one by one.
  • Pay one of Whitechapel Charlie associates to do the dirty work for her.
  • Eliminate Fahrenheit first by strangling her in her sleep, and lacing all of the chems within the Old State House with poison to take out John Hancock.

She understands that collateral damage may be possible but considers losses acceptable without too much disruption to her business.

KL-E-0 seems to hold a certain amount of respect for Magnolia, considering her a fellow working girl and willing to give her a chance before sudden termination. Her contingency consists of burning down The Third Rail as a warning, should she resist after that, a simple clean shot to the head would be the outcome.

On the second floor of her building, you can find a holotape named Join the Railroad. Whether or not she actually supports The Railroad is unclear.

NotesEdit

  • Her terminal is titled "Have a Plan to Kill Everyone You Meet" which may be a reference to the famous Major General James Mattis quote, "Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet."
  • The Fat Man in her shop can be stolen and sold to her repeatedly.

  • KL-E-0 is a possible reference to the same named woman-robot in a 2014 Autómata movie, that looks very similar with the Fallout world.
  • Her name is likely a play on the job role "CLIO," or 'Customer Liaison & Information Officer,' commonly used to refer to staff who work at a reception desk or in customer services.
  • Her name may also be a reference to "Cleo" one of the characters in the song Pistol Packin' Mama by Bing Crosby and The Andrews Sisters, which is played on Diamond City Radio.
