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 she 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 player to extort Lenk for 250 caps. This results in negative Karma and a small bit of NCR infamy (not enough to reduce the player's Reputation by a level). 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.
