When some of her raiders were killed in the local bar by the Brotherhood of Steel Initiate, she coerced the mayor of Carbon, Richard, to lure them into the Carbon crater. There, the mayor, with help from the raiders, attempted to kill the Initiate. However, the mayor himself was killed, and the Initiate escaped and made it back into town, which was now being razed to the ground by the raiders. The Raider Matron ordered her raiders to burn Armpit to death, and the Initiate followed them back to their headquarters in an abandoned mill on the edge of town.
The Raider Matron converses with the Super Mutant general, Attis, selling slaves to him from a previous raid. When she asks for his help in order to kill the Initiate who had killed many of her men, he calls her "repulsive" for stooping down to a level in which she would sell her own fellow humans.
When the Initiate reaches her, she reveals that she helped the Brotherhood of Steel when she met with a group of paladins who wanted information on super mutant activity in the area. She directed them to a mutant army that was located at the nearby ghoul city of Los. She then reveals that the paladins not only knew about her activities in Carbon but they also offered her protection.

If the player plays as Cyrus, the Raider Matron makes a comment, "It'll be a shame to waste a good piece of man-meat like you. Guess I can cut off the good parts and keep them... as toys" to which Cyrus comments, "I don't like to hurt women, but in your case I'll make an exception." If the player is Nadia, she comments, "Baby, when I'm done with you, you're going to beg me to kill you. And I'm not going to listen" to which Nadia comments, "Ooo, I'm shaking. Let's finish this..."
- "Hey! Back in line, slaves. I can't sell you if you're dead, but I'll shoot you in the back if you try to run!"
- "Shut your mouth, worm, before I step on you!"
- "All right you gorgeous hunks, let's go. And anyone who's too drunk to walk, gets left behind. Now move!"
Behind the scenes
- The Raider Matron was inspired by pin-up photos of Bettie Page, an American model who gained attention in the 1950s as a result of the photos. The developers liked the idea that "sadistic female character" might pattern herself after Page.[Dev 1]
The Raider Matron appears in Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel.

- Answer: "Here's the story ... The now-notorious character with the thong was based on photos of Betty Page, a 50's pinup girl who was notorious due to photo shoots of her that featured black leather, bondage, and (believe it or not) skimpy clothing. We thought that a sadistic female character might pattern herself after Betty Page at her seediest. So the character's attire was based upon some research into 50's pop culture."
