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 second or third level of the bridge tower. After 9PM she works her night shift in the marketplace. The market closes after dark, and some characters in the marketplace may tell the player to leave or say, "You shouldn't be here!" Should the Lone Wanderer stay too long, she and nearby non-player characters may turn hostile.
Council Seat: The player needs to speak with her to complete the quest. If she is killed, the quest may not be able to be completed, and consequently, the option of gaining the deathclaw gauntlet schematic quest reward is lost.
