A very thin elderly woman with warts and a very furry upper lip, widow Rooney ekes out an existence by herding a small brahmin livestock. However, with the droughts affecting her cattle, she has been unable to cover the $20 monthly rent for the shack she lives in and sooner or later will end up evicted.
As an interesting fact, she is descendant from Gypsies.
If you choose to evict Rooney out into the cold, she casts a curse (whilst making a hand motion) on you while which doesn't do anything to your stats. However, you only get 1000 XP instead of 1500 (if you complete help her with rent) and -25 Karma.
