Knight Captain Durga is the Brotherhood of Steel Quartermaster in the Citadel in the year 2277.

Contents

Background

Knight Captain Durga is the Quartermaster of the Brotherhood of Steel. She dislikes this position; instead of maintaining the weapons, she'd rather be outside, fighting with her brothers in arms. [1]

Daily schedule

She is located in the back room of the Armory in the Citadel laboratory.

Interactions with the player character

She sells Power Armor and other Brotherhood weaponry and she can also repair your gear. You need the permission of Owyn Lyons to trade with her.

Her items are ridiculously overpriced, costing almost twice as much compared to other merchants. However, her supply of rare ammunition is large.

Only after killing Knight Captain Durga will Durga's Supply Key be in her inventory. It unlocks the Citadel Lab Armament Locker on the very back wall, (East), of this room. Do not kill her with a follower present, as they will automatically sense hostiles outside the Armory, and run off attacking them, causing havoc.

  • If you can get into the Armory, you'll be able to loot all of the items on the shelves behind her without suffering any karma loss.
  • In the G.E.C.K. editor, Durga is listed as a Knight Sergeant, however both the Official Guide and the game refer to her as a Knight Captain.

Appearances

Knight Captain Durga appears only in Fallout 3.

Fanart of Durga.
"It's not enough to win. You want nothing left of your enemy but a skull nailed to a fencepost so everybody understands the cost of crossing you."
—Durga

Durga is a fragment of the AI Melissa that wasn't sent back to 2004 to infect the Ilovebees.com site after the explosive Slipspace incident on the UNSC Apocalypso.

Biography

Instead it somehow ended up in the present (2552) on the computer of Jersey Morelli. The fragment of Melissa didn't know her past, only that she liked to find things.[1] Jersey named her Durga because he believed it suited her personality.

Durga is the only known source of the .wav files or Axons that told much of the I love bees storyline. From 2004 The Operator apparently had a link to the future via Durga, according to the hives.html monologue - indicating that she was spying on Durga, spying on others and that the axon memories are occurring in real time.

As she likes to find things Durga spies on people, people that she picks but for reasons she doesn't understand. She spied on Janissary James for Jersey, and spies on Kamal because a part of her knows that Kamal is her brother. She also spies on Rani Sobeck and Herzog as directed by Melissa but seems to not be aware of it. At James James' funeral, Jersey offers Durga to Jan to assist in apprehending Thin Kinkle and Monster Ann.

Loyalty

Even though she grows a strange, almost familial attachment to Jersey, one thing Durga will not do, however, is transfer Jersey's father, Jason Morelli, to a safer military assignment on Earth. Despite all of her moral and ethical "flexibility", she understands the nature of military duty and will not compromise it,although Jersey wants nothing more than for her to bring Jason home.

However, this may also be because Durga has some knowledge of the Covenant attack force coming to Earth. If this were the case, she would realize that Jason would be safer in the colonies than back on Earth, where much of the population will soon be killed.

Trivia

  • In the early drafts of the ilovebees story line, Jersey Morelli's last name was actually Singh.[2] Jersey chose the name Durga after the Hindu deity, Durga, a multihanded female warrior goddess. Later drafts saw Jersey's name and heritage change but the Durga name stuck.

Durga Besadii Tai, self-styled His Great Obesity, the Lord Durga, was a Hutt and the successor of Aruk as head of the Besadii kajidic. Durga served as a vigo in the criminal organization Black Sun for a time, but after the death of the Underlord Xizor, he set out on his own. The ambitious Hutt created a plot to bring down the New Republic, using a superweapon called the Darksaber, a scaled-down version of the Death Star battlestation. However, his plan failed, thanks to the incompetence of his workers, the Taurill, and the efforts of New Republic General Crix Madine. The Darksaber was destroyed and Durga was killed, ending his short-lived rebellion.

Biography

Durga was born in 105 BBY, but suffered the misfortune of having a disfiguring birthmark over his eye. Hutts were notoriously superstitious and his relatives urged Aruk to kill his offspring. Aruk foresaw that Durga would become a great Hutt one day. He then ordered the naysayers to be cease their complaints.

Durga reached the Hutt age of responsibility at 100 and learned the business of Besadii at his father's right hand. Durga could see that his idiot cousin Kibbick couldn't run the Ylesian enterprise and asked if he could be sent in his place. Aruk felt that Durga was still too young to go and kept Kibbick on.[2]

Ascension to leadership

Durga, Black Sun vigo

After Aruk was murdered, Durga called for help from Prince Xizor to secure the succession and locate Aruk's murderer. Xizor agreed, on the condition that Durga relinquish substantial profits from Ylesia. In desperation, Durga agreed. Xizor had already discovered that Aruk had been poisoned by the Desilijic clan and deliberately thwarted Durga's attempts to uncover the truth. Jiliac Desilijic Tiron, uncle of Jabba Desilijic Tiure and head of the Desilijic clan purchased a rare poison from the Malkite Poisoners and used Teroenza, High Priest of the Ylesian enterprise to deliver the poison to Aruk. Infuriated, Durga squirmed over to the Desilijic palace and challenged Jiliac under the Old Law. Durga and Jiliac fought in mortal combat, and Jiliac was killed. Durga knew that Teroenza was planning independence for Ylesia—he had purchased a turbolaser and hired many more guards. Durga then requested a mercenary force from Xizor to ensure that no trouble would break out and he then hired Boba Fett to assassinate Teroenza and slice off his horn to mount on his wall as a trophy. Unfortunately, the Rebel Alliance had already embarked upon a mission to free the Ylesia slaves and shut down the spice factories. The world was devastated and the enterprise shut down. Durga had to honor his bargain and became one of Xizor's Vigos.

Xizor knew that Durga had enough ambition for ten people and used Guri to keep him in line. Xizor would reflect that greed was good, fear and greed were better. The Hutt became a competitor with Sprax for control over the underworld in the Sisar Run, but some of their conflict was later resolved by the creation of the To-Sharr Uuta Shipworks front as a cooperative venture.

The Darksaber

After the near simultaneous deaths of Xizor and Jabba, Durga took over a good portion of Black Sun's assets. With the underworld in chaos following the deaths of the Galaxy's two most powerful kingpins, Durga was able to dislodge Desilijic and make Besadii become the dominant clan on Nal Hutta. He allied himself with the self-proclaimed "General" Sulamar to gain Imperial support on the Darksaber superweapon project. Although Sulamar liked to think of himself as powerful, and also as being in charge of the project, Durga was the mastermind. Also unknown to Durga was the fact that Sulamar was just a lousy Imperial technician. In order to gain information which would be used for his superweapon, Durga ransacked Jabba's Palace on Tatooine for information on how to hack into Imperial databases. He then made official diplomatic overtures to Coruscant asking for peace. As a gesture of good faith, he convinced his fellow Hutts to cancel the bounties on Han Solo and Leia Organa Solo.

Durga shoots Crix Madine.

During a visit to Coruscant, he brought with him several dozen Taurill. The inquisitive creatures served as a distraction for three of their number to escape and track down and steal the plans for the Death Star.[3] First, Durga offered an alliance and then casually informed the New Republic that the Galactic Empire were up to some very interesting things.

Leia Organa Solo then decided to pay Durga a return visit - it was clear the Hutt was up to something and brought the fleet along for a "training exercise". Durga made his excuses and left for the Darksaber.

The New Republic was fully aware of what Durga was planning and they sent a commando team led by General Crix Madine to sabotage the project using the fleet as back-up. The team failed in their objective and Madine was personally executed by Durga. Before he died, Madine signaled the New Republic Fleet. He also revealed to Durga that Sulamar was just a technician, and a poor one at that. Ultimately, Durga's defeat came about not from the New Republic, but by shoddy construction. The Taurill were used as the builders for the Darksaber but their hive-mind and Durga's cheapness meant that the Darksaber's superlaser wouldn't work. The ship broke up and a hail of asteroids finished off the superweapon, killing the Hutt.
