Left without parents at an early age, Nadia grew up rough on the dusty streets of one of the urban settlements that litter the wasteland, with few friends and fewer comforts. Life revolved around foraging for food, stealing money, and avoiding the attentions of the thugs that ran the town. Then one day, a troop of Brotherhood soldiers passed through the town. After searching it for salvageable technology, they cleaned out the trash and scum that had been running the place and fed the hungry. And then as quickly as they had arrived, they left. Nadia, seeing the chance for a better life, followed and now they have given her a challenge: an initiation to determine whether or not she shall join their ranks.
