Gametitle-VBThe following is based on Van Buren and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

Tamara Young is a cook for the Brotherhood of Steel in 2253.


Tamara is a pretty young woman with no particular skills other than cooking. She grew up in a small wasteland town and, although intelligent, had no opportunity to improve her place in life. She eventually met a young man, fell in love, and was thinking of settling down. However, life in a small town was still very unappealing and she wanted out.

Tamara got her opportunity when she was offered a job as a cook for a military organization. It seemed that they were short on personnel and needed someone competent to take on the task of feeding the troops. She quickly accepted the position and broke the news to her new boyfriend. She was quite happy when he agreed to join her and help her out in her duties. After clearing everything with her new employer, she set out for Maxson bunker.

Tamara is intelligent and bright, but she suffers from the foolishness of youth. Oftentimes she does things just because others are doing it. She doesn't take the time to think things through.[1]
