K.D. Inkwell Returns to Fallout 76 in Season 5 & Takes You to the Future

Look who's back!
Look who's back! Bethesda

The time-traveling historian K.D. Inkwell will return to Fallout 76 in Season 5. For those who can remember, the last time we saw her was in Season 3. This time, she brings an all-new adventure from the 42nd Century.

Inkwell has been thrust into a dystopian future resulting from a calibration malfunction. During this period, the world is inhabited by what appears to be Dolphin Human Hybrids. Known as the MIND Organization, their sole purpose is to get the last remnants of humanity and make them part of their soulless collective. The question is will she escape this world or become part of the organization?
