The clamor of our bloodthirsty crowds reaches every corner of The Wasteland, but I'll pretend that your ignorance doesn't offend me, stranger. This is The Thorn! Here's where the strong make a name for themselves and the weak are fed to the jaws of hell. You can bet on the contenders or, if you have what it takes, be one of the contenders. Be warned, The Thorn demands respect. Break the rules, or offend me in any way, and I'll gut you open for all to see.”
A confident, proud woman who attempts to conceal her emotions behind a mask of stoicism, Red Lucy perceives human life as cheap and fragile. She views The Thorn as a means to escape from the bonds of a harsh and hostile land, "awakening" people and allowing them to "choose the moment of death against the will of destiny." She acknowledges that both New Vegas and the Wasteland are needed in order to make this possible.

- "The Thorn is my master, not the other way around. I live to make our kin able to transcend their limitations. Our land is harsh, and hostile. Our lives are cheap, and fragile. Death is our assured fate, striking when least we expect it. The Thorn awakens us to the truth. Here we escape from our bonds, and choose the moment of death against the will of destiny."
- "Westside attracts all sorts of travelers, including merchants and farmers. They come here to exchange their goods, or to seek protection. Our community provides enough food, clothes, weapons and medicine to encourage trade, and to arm our defenses. The Thorn demonstrates, beyond anything else, that we're self-sufficient. Our desert-blood has overcome even the strongest beasts of the Wasteland."
- "Your bravery surpasses that of any other, and I've come to admire your actions. Before death takes us, I would know you deeper. Come with me... My Hunter."

- "You are a match to my elite, but don't congratulate yourself so profusely just yet. Still, your valor deserves recognition and I shall honor it."
- "Even if I trusted you I'd not share my secrets just for your pretty face, stranger. The Thorn's a sacred ground, a source of awe. Here we truly rule over the forces of nature, for once. These beasts are slaves to their instincts and hunger for blood. That's good enough an answer for everyone, and it'll do for you too."
- "This is it, hunter. I've decided to grant you the opportunity to earn the greatest honor The Thorn could ever expect. Deathclaws are our most precious and our most feared contenders. I want you to be the one to deliver the sacred eggs to me, personally."
- "You speak the truth, stranger, and The Thorn lives by the justice that honor and strength dispense."
