Curie III is the leader of a small cult living in the Holy Light Monastery in Springvale in 2277. She is added to Fallout 3 by the add-on Broken Steel



Mother Curie III is a former Child of Atom and Megaton local who took Megaton's entire Aqua Pura shipment and began irradiating it and distributing it as Holy Water to fulfill her perceived religious calling to spread irradiation.

Interactions with the player character

Main article: Holy Water (quest)

In the quest Holy Water, The Lone Wanderer has the choice of persuading Curie to stop distributing the "holy water" to others, or stopping her by killing her and her followers. She'll also give the player character some "holy water" when asked.

Mother Curie III appears in the Broken Steel add-on for Fallout 3.


  • Mother Curie III is an extremely peaceful character, and does not become hostile if you killed Brother Gerard in order to enter the Monastery, or even if you flat out tell her that you're going to wipe out her cult. If threatened, she simply states that she expected some form of religious persecution and that she refuses to respond to violence with violence. If you initiate combat against the Holy Light cult, Curie will simply cower and flee. Her Feral Ghoul Reaver and Glowing One followers, however, are not so forgiving.

Behind the scenes

  • Mother Curie III's name is a reference to the French-Polish scientist Marie Curie-Sklodowska, an early pioneer of the study of radiation, who died of radiation poisoning.
