Liora Salem


Liora was an Institute combatant, and a pretty good one at that. She was adept at gunplay, linguistics, tradecraft, and the general workings of the Bat Leveyha — sexpionage was one of her specialties.

Additionally, while poking around the city’s military community, she’s run into Hauser Strauss a couple of times. Out of everyone she’s met, he’s the most open to her questions, although she has yet to determine whether that’s a good thing or not…
