This whole place would fall apart if it weren't for Dom and me keeping anyone from causing too much trouble.

Machete is a junior law enforcer in Canterbury Commons in 2277.


Machete was born in 2258. One of the fiercest defenders Little Lamplight has ever seen, 19-year-old "Machete" earned her nickname at the age of 7, when she killed a mole rat in the caves armed only with a knife the size of her arm. Since then, she has been a bona fide celebrity. When she turned 16, she got disoriented in a dust storm and got lost, eventually arriving at Canterbury Commons instead of Big Town. To this day, she refuses to admit that she went to the wrong place. Dominic in particular saw her potential to provide security for the future of the camp, and after a year of his guidance, she's earned a fair amount of respect from the locals.[1]


Machete works alongside Dominic D'Ellsadro as his junior law enforcer. They both keep Canterbury Commons safe from raiders, unwanted creatures and danger in general.

Daily scheduleEdit

Machete patrols Canterbury Commons from 8:00 A.M. to 12:00 P.M., eats until 1:00 P.M., patrols until 6:00 P.M., eats until 7:00 P.M., then patrols again until 2:00 A.M., after which she goes to bed and wakes up at 8:00 A.M.

  • Similarly to fellow law enforcer Dominic D'Ellsadro, she can be killed while patrolling by enemies that spawn close to the area.
  • If the player earlier went to Little Lamplight and talk to her with high enough Intelligence, the PC will ask if she got her name from Little Lamplight.[2]

Notable quotesEdit

  • "This whole place would fall apart if it weren't for Dom and me keeping anyone from causing too much trouble."
  • "Good guess! I was the toughest defender they ever saw in Lamplight. I earned my nickname fighting off a Mole Rat with a knife big as my arm."
  • "I know Dom doesn't want me just killing them. He and the Mechanist used to be friends or something. All I know is next time they come to town, I bet I could solve the whole problem with one bullet for each of them."
