Lana Danvers was born in 2247. Danvers, 30, is Harkness's second in command and best friend, though their relationship is strictly platonic (her husband was also a Rivet City security officer, but he died of disease a couple years ago). If Harkness leaves Rivet City, she is promoted to security chief. Danvers gives preferential treatment to Hangar Deck residents. She has a mild disdain for Upper Deck residents: This is a source of mild friction between Harkness and Danvers.
She can be found on the 2nd or 3rd level of the Bridge tower. After 9:00pm she works her night shift in the marketplace. Be warned, the market closes after dark. Some characters in the Marketplace may tell you to leave or "You shouldn't be here!". Stay too long and nearby non-player characters may turn hostile. If this happens, simply leave, wait, then return in a few days and everyone will be friendly again.
Council Seat: You need to speak with her to complete the quest. If you kill her you may not be able to complete the unmarked quest, and consequently lose the option of gaining the deathclaw gauntlet schematic quest reward.
She is the first in line to become the security chief and take the seat in the Rivet City Council if Harkness can no longer fill these roles (see The Replicated Man). She will then refer to herself as "Chief Danvers" in conversation, although she has been known to call Harkness the current seat in the council even after he has left. It is possible to get her and Harkness to both be chief at the same time if during the Replicated Man quest, you ask Harkness if you can kill Zimmer, tell Zimmer that Harkness is the android, then kill Zimmer, and the game will act as if he left even if he hadn't.
