Only thing better than gettin' pissed is pickin' a fight. Am I right?— Cait

Cait is a cage fighter and a possible companion living in the Combat Zone in Fallout 4.


Cait grew up in an abusive household, attempting to run away twice.[1] When she turned 18, her parents sold her into slavery.[2][3] For five years she endured abuse, slowly stealing money until she was able to buy her own freedom.[4] Cait then returned to her former home, kicked down the door, and shot her parents to death.[5]

For three years, Cait fought in Combat Zone arena, taking Psycho to maintain the physically demanding lifestyle.[6] She had a love interest named Stratton who was likewise abusive, leading Cait to close off to others and remain skeptical of debts.[7] Cait continued to fight in the arena after raiders took over the establishment.[8] If the Sole Survivor defeats the raiders in the Combat Zone, Tommy Lonegan offers the Sole Survivor Cait's contract.[9] Lonegan refers to her as "little bird" and expresses his concerns with her chem use and continued self destructive behavior.[10]

  • She will try to comfort the player character if taken to the corpse of Nate/Nora in Vault 111.
  • Cait will dislike all four of the first set of dialogue options during the Minutemen quests to help settlements with raiders.
  • Cait will actively use Psycho, Jet, RadAway and other chems in her inventory. Since it was explained she was an addict when meeting her, it might be beneficial to keep her stocked up as she appears to get friendly very quickly, and it might improve her usefulness in fights.
  • If Cait has any Psycho or Jet, one can sometimes see her using it before completing her personal quest.
  • Cait may react negatively after completing her personal quest Benign Intervention if the player character uses chems in front of her. She will berate them for being a "hypocrite" for using them after helping her to cure her Psycho addiction.
  • The Sole Survivor may raise Cait's affection level by removing their own clothing and fast traveling between safe locations.
  • Before completing Benign Intervention, Cait likes when the Sole Survivor drinks hard alcoholic beverages (bourbon, rum, vodka, whiskey and wine). Drinking before sleeping and before waiting will speed up the process.
  • Cait will disapprove of joining any of the factions until the second act of the main story when the Brotherhood of Steel comes in. After this, she will no longer disapprove of joining the Brotherhood of Steel.
  • Cait asks Takahashi to serve her a drink on their first meeting, but she doesn't get it as Takahashi only serves noodles in the Diamond City market.
  • Cait's dialogue while exploring several of the vaults indicates that she is already familiar with the Vault-Tec experiments and the true purpose of the vault network.
  • When entering and exploring any vaults with Cait as a companion after Benign Intervention, she will ask to leave quickly are not enter the vault after her vault experience before hand.
  • Cait makes flirtatious comments, such as Piper, for whom she will say it's "too bad they can't make it a threesome," or Deacon, Preston Garvey and MacCready, whom she refers to as "handsome." She also tells Hancock that if she ever decides to "go ghoul," he will be the one she calls. She will continue to make these comments even after being romanced by the Sole Survivor.
  • If the Sole Survivor helps Billy Peabody find his parents, she will be annoyed since she was never helped or cared for but if Billy is sold to Bullet, she will hate it because she was also sold into slavery.
  • Without completing her personal quest Benign Intervention, the maximum level of affinity that can be reached with her is 999. This means that to be able to get her perk "Trigger Rush," the player character has to complete her quest first.
  • Unused Content Cut dialogue for Tommy Lonegan indicates that at one stage during development, it was planned for Cait to be acquired after losing a fight with the player character.

  1. Sole Survivor: "Why didn't you run away?"
    Cait: "I tried. Twice. The first time I did it, they locked me in a shed outside of the house we lived in. The second time, they broke one of me legs."
    (Cait's dialogue)
  2. Sole Survivor: "I appreciate your trust."
    Cait: "Well, you're the first to earn it. It all starts with two wastes of humanity I suppose you could call me parents. I'm convinced I was a mistake, because I can't remember a single moment that they treated me like their daughter. I was yelled at and beaten. Everythin' I did was wrong. Nothin' but a nuisance in their eyes. The whole time I was tellin' meself that they had to love me, even if it was just the tiniest bit, because they never kicked me out. Then me eighteenth birthday arrived, and I found out why they kept me around. They slapped a shock collar around me neck and sold me to slavers. They didn't even care enough about me to say goodbye. Eighteen years of sufferin' through that shite and all I was worth to them was a pocketful of caps."
    (Cait's dialogue)
  3. Sole Survivor: "How could you kill your own parents?"
    Cait: "How can you call them parents? They were opportunists who were takin' advantage of a human bein' just to make a few caps! If I had come out of that bitch of a mother deformed, they would have drowned me in the river and started again. They didn't give a shite about me. So I didn't give a shite about them. End of story."
    (Cait's dialogue)
  4. Sole Survivor: "My god. I'm so sorry."
    Cait: "Thanks, but there's more to the story. It would be easy to blame me charmin' personality on me parents. But they didn't make me this way, I did. I was with those slavers for five years. Roughest five of me goddamn life. The things they made me do... the way they used me for their amusement. It sickens me to my stomach even thinkin' about it. But I bidded me time and learned to use their own methods against them. Stealin' a few caps out of a sleepin' man's pocket is a piece of cake... as long as you don't get greedy."
    (Cait's dialogue)
  5. Sole Survivor: "I can't even imagine having to go through something like that."
    Cait: "You think that's low? Just wait. The story gets much worse. It took every ounce of patience I had, but after five years I had finally pocketed enough to buy me own way outta there. But instead of headin' off to try and repair the shambles of me life, I gave in to me rage and I headed home. You can imagine the look on me parents faces when I kicked open their door. What you can't imagine is what they looked like after... after I emptied me gun into them."
    (Cait's dialogue)
  6. The Sole Survivor: "I always have time to listen to you, Cait."
    Cait: "Good, because this isn't easy for me to say, and I want to get it right. Sigh. Where do I begin? Did you know I spent three years fightin' at the Combat Zone? Three years of gettin' beaten to hell by a bunch of losers and lunatics. After the matches were over, I'd spit out the blood, stitch me wounds and do a couple shots of Psycho to keep me goin'. I fuckin' hated it. I hated the crowds, I hated the other fighters and I hated meself. I never understood why I put myself through all of that. Until now. It's because I was alone. And I think deep down, I wanted to die... I wanted one of me opponents to crush the life out of me. The easy way out."
    (Cait's dialogue)
  7. Sole Survivor: "Why are you so paranoid about debts?"
    Cait: "It was kind of my fault. Got close to a guy named Stratton while I was there... thought we really had somethin' goin'. One night we had a fight cause I wouldn't hop in the sack with him. Our fight got pretty bad... nothin' physical, just a whole lot of yellin'. So I get pissed off, and I leave. I get outside and a bunch of Raiders start pushin' me around, givin' me shite. Stratton walks out, looks at me and says "Next time you'll think twice before walkin' out on me." Fucker left me there. I got beat up pretty good that night. That's when I learned that nobody does favors for free."
    (Cait's dialogue)
  8. Sole Survivor: "What exactly do you think I'm expecting in return?"
    Cait: "Who knows? Doin' your laundry, takin' a bullet for you, haulin' your gear... what's the difference? I don't think I'm getting' through to you. Let me explain what I mean, and then maybe you'll understand where I'm comin' from. I spent three years livin' at the Combat Zone. Smelled like puke and piss, but I called it home. I was makin' a few caps, had me own bed to sleep in and three hot meals a day. Then the Raiders took over the place. You know that lot... they aren't exactly what you'd call "the gentle type." After they moved in, if you didn't keep lookin' over your shoulder, you were liable to get sucker punched and robbed... or worse. Didn't take me long to learn that I had to put my hard-earned caps to good use. Buyin' friends was essential to makin' life easier. So I guess I'm waitin' for you to hand me a bill, you know what I mean?"
    (Cait's dialogue)
  9. Tommy Lonegan: "So here's my predicament. I suddenly got no audience. No audience means I got no caps coming in."
    Cait: "Yeah, Tommy? Just why the hell you trying to get rid of me?"
    Tommy Lonegan: "It ain't your fightin' skills I'm concerned with. And if you ain't bringing in caps, little bird, you ain't an asset. You're a liability. To me... and to yourself. So... here's what I'm thinkin'. What say I let you take over her contract? She goes with you, watches your back... ...look you'd be doin' me a favor while I try to get the place back in order. What do ya say?"
    (Tommy Lonegan's dialogue)
  10. Tommy Lonegan: "So here's my predicament. I suddenly got no audience. No audience means I got no caps coming in."
    Cait: "Yeah, Tommy? Just why the hell you trying to get rid of me?"
    Tommy Lonegan: "Look, truth is, all that junk, it's been making you careless. And I don't want to be the one doing color commentary when you finally hit the floor. Alright? So just do me this favor. Both of you. Please."
    (Tommy Lonegan's dialogue)
