Events[ | ]


  • Jenifer suffers from a classic case of schizophrenia: paranoia, phantom sounds, and the like. While she's usually upbeat and happy, a combination of stress and lack of medication will aggravate her condition to the point of making her unable to function. If you don't act, she may flee the Shelter.
  • On her first day in the Shelter, Jenifer will give you some coffee to thank you for bringing her to the Shelter, and suggest the "Hospitality" job.
  • At two weeks in, Jenifer will ask if you're doing all right, and will ask if you think she's doing a good job. If you complement her, she'll gain a Mood boost, but will not take any negative impact from anything mean you might say.
  • At nearly three weeks in the Shelter, Jenifer will tell you about the location of the Summer Camp (where you meet Ben).
  • At nearly a month in the Shelter, Jenifer will say she's heard someone playing music loudly at night, and that people might be doing it to irritate her. You can try to address the issue, but she'll shut the matter down and hurry off.
  • At a month in the Shelter, Jenifer will come up to you, frantically begging you to not kick her out. If you have a Medical skill at 8 or more, you can ask if she takes any prescription medication, and learn the location of her house (Strong Residence) so you can retrieve her Antipsychotic Medication. If you have a Medical skill below 8, she will leave the conversation and become Uncooperative, but you can speak to her in the Shelter and ask if she has her parents info written down anywhere, in order to learn the location of her house.
  • After a month and a half in the Shelter, if Jenifer doesn't have her medication, she will go into a frenzy, suffering a massive Mood loss and refusing to deal with you. You can choose to kill her, or let her run away in tears. If you don't get her the medicine from her house in five days after this, she'll run away from the Shelter for good.
  • After at least one of her episodes, you can talk to Jenifer in the Shelter and try to find out more - if you ask her what's wrong, and are patient with her and repeatedly ask how you can help, she'll mention she wants her parents. If you ask where to find them, press the issue gently and ask for their information or her ID. If you've gotten the medication from her house, do what you have to in order to get her to take it.
  • If you manage to get Jenifer her medication and get her to take it, she'll come up to you later and apologize for her earlier behavior, and say she'll try to make up for it.

Traits[ | ]

  • Intensive Care: "This ally enjoys having an Infirmary in the Shelter, and will gain a one-time mood boost after it is completed."

Play Style[ | ]

Jenifer is a poor ally in the field: she doesn't have solid combat skills, and her thresholds for damage and the undead are very low. However, she excels in the Shelter in the Hospitality job, although she can serve as a nurse in an emergency.

Jenifer will react negatively to killing neutral survivors.
