So what's the deal with Bess the brahmin? Was she planned to be a permanent follower in Fallout 2? It always seemed kind of odd to me that the cow would simply vanish after you had left Modoc. She is also included in the follower amount when she's in the party. Finally, I vaguely remember that she does have entries (as do Miria and Davin) in the file, whose name I don't recall , that contains the various lines that are used by your followers when they gain a level. While Fallout 2 does have a variety of non-human followers, I think the developers in the end decided against to add a brahmin to the mix. Simply because it would seem silly to have an eventually overpowered brahmin follow you wherever you go. If there is more concrete evidence in the game files (or elsewhere like the bible) regarding this subject, then please share it.
