"Doctor" Marjorie Reed is the lead researcher at the Stables - the Mordino family drug lab north of New Reno.

Contents

Position

As one of the primary researchers at the Stables, Reed was tasked by Mordino drug designer Myron with testing and refining new varieties of Jet, a metamphetamine hybrid inhalant drug marketed by the Mordino family. Even under the best conditions drug testing is dangerous. Between the Mordino family's pressure for increasing the Jet saturation of the local communities and Reed's own distinct lack of ethics, drug testing at the Stables is a torturous, deadly affair.

Reed's test subjects are slaves purchased from the ever-present Slaver's Guild. The attrition rate is extreme; when Jet was first being produced, testing killed nearly one hundred slaves. Reed continues the deadly tests, albeit on a smaller population.

Not content to merely observe effects of drugs, Reed's team of researchers use several investigatory methods that are both unethical and amoral. Dissection is common, as is vivisection of patients to observe internal effects while the patient is still alive. Subjects are given increasing dosages of untested drugs while they are observed. Through it all, Reed keeps making notes, observing with utter detachment as she and her fellow researchers cause all manner of horrific injury to their test subjects.

Loyalties

Like all Stables employees, Reed is effectively owned by the Mordino family in New Reno. However, like many Stables employees, Reed detests the "chief" of the research compound - arrogant kid drug designer Myron.

Her loyalty to the family is not above a bribe or a lie, however. It is possible to bluff one's way into the Stables, even into the secured tunnels below, by either bribing or complimenting Reed. Even a knowledge of drug production and testing is enough to get Reed to allow a visitor into the Stables.

Fate and Function

Marjorie Reed's fate is largely left to the player. Since visiting the Stables is not a requisite to completing the plot of the game, Reed may not be encountered by all players. Even passing visitors to the Stables - or those given to letting weapons do all the talking - might never actually meet Reed at all. However, Reed is the easiest route to Myron.

Depending upon how things go with Myron, Reed will either continue working, or may be killed in a gunfight following Myron's assassination.

Behind the scenes

A stupid character (That is, one with less than 4 points of Intelligence.) will refer to Reed as Delenn, a character by this name in the television series Babylon 5 shares her hairstyle.
