was one of the most important people of the West Coast
in the 23rd century. She was the daughter of Aradesh
and from her early years displayed uncommon strength of character and liveliness, complementing her good looks. At the age of sixteen, in 2161
, she met the Vault Dweller
, a figure who would inspire her for years to come.
Tandi helped her father expand Shady Sands, laying the foundations for the New California Republic. When her father died, searching for Vault 13, she took it over and soon, the town grew substantially as she opened trade routes with Junktown and the Hub. With a strong economy, her town soon dominated brahmin trade and eventually, the first NCR states emerged, slowly merging into one political entity.
Tandi was declared the first President of the Republic and ever since has ruled the NCR with the Congress. She was focused on expanding the state, to bring peace and stability to the wastes. Nearing 100 years of age in 2241
, Tandi remains acting President, still retaining her wit and youthful fire, dementia and other ailments of the elderly seemingly failing to sink their hooks in her.
