She is extremely intelligent and resourceful. Her only difficulty as a young child was understanding personal property laws.”— Character selection description
Natalia is the grand-child of a Russian diplomat who worked at the Soviet Consulate in Los Angeles. She is a talented acrobat, with excellent coordination and reflexes. She is extremely intelligent and resourceful. Her only difficulty as a young child was understanding personal property laws. Natalia is very interested in leaving the Vault, and curious to explore the outside world.
- She is designed to offer a stealthy, as opposed to a combative or diplomatic, approach to solving the central conflict of the game: the Master.
- If her strong suits are played right, confronting the Master may not even be an issue, as one can simply sneak in and detonate the nuke hidden below the Cathedral.
- As the Vault Dweller is established as being male in Fallout 2, she cannot canonically be the Vault Dweller.
- Interestingly, her biography, the in-game description of the Fallout, the AK-112 assault rifle, a couple of plaques in the Museum of Technology in Fallout 3, and a terminal entry in The Switchboard in Fallout 4 are the only places where the Soviet Union is ever mentioned in any of the Fallout games.
- All non-player characters using the default appearance for females have Natalia's likeness, as their hairstyles look alike to her depiction.
Natalia appears only in the original Fallout.
