Lenk is an NCR Ranger, filling the role of comm officer at Camp Foxtrot. She is very jumpy and becomes agitated when first talked to. She was out on patrol near the Dam when her squad was jumped by a Legion squad and was knocked unconscious. The Legion soldiers killed, butchered, and mutilated her squad. When she awoke, she was no longer fearless and didn't have any nerve. Soon after, she started drinking and gambling and found herself in debt with the Omertas. She is constantly worried about them catching up with her.
Lenk's Bad Debts: Lenk has a big debt to pay back to the Omertas. Lying to her will allow the Courier to extort Lenk to the tune of 250 caps. This results in negative Karma and a small bit of NCR infamy. On the other hand, passing a Speech check and listening to her story, then telling her she grew strong and will take revenge yields positive Karma.
Return to Sender: Lenk is one of the people that the upgrade codes must be given to.
"We were on patrol near the Dam when a Legion raiding party jumped us. Didn't even have to time to radio it in. I was hit in the head with a machete and knocked out. Didn't kill me, though some nights I wish it had. When I woke up, my nerve was gone. The rest of my squad was crucified, butchered, mutilated. I don't know how they missed me. Maybe they didn't. Maybe they knew they'd broken me. I gambled and drank a lot after that. Got into trouble, but the Rangers gave me a second chance instead of kicking me out. So, here I am."
"I talked to the cashier at Gomorrah into forwarding me some chips - I was convinced I was due for a hot streak. It, uh, didn't go so well. The Omertas were nice and said they'd give me some time to pay them back. They also said if they had to talk to me about my debt again, they wouldn't be nice the next time."
