Who is Virginia in Sons of the Forest?
Virginia is one of the most recognisable NPCs in the game. She wears a blue bathing suit, has extra limbs, and is one of the missing people your team has been sent to find.
Whilst it is possible to kill Virginia, doing so would be a mistake as it is permanent. If you take the time to earn her trust, she will gradually appear at your campsites and relax by your fires. She can carry two weapons at a time, the pistol or the shotgun, and will eventually defend your camp should it be attacked by cannibals.
Unlike Kelvin, you cannot give Virginia commands, but you can give her weapons to carry and equip clothes on her.
There are three outfits in the game so far that you can collect and give to Virginia. These are:
- Camo Suit
- Track Suit
Where is Virginia in Sons of the Forest?
It is speculated among the fanbase that Virginia rarely spawns in the snowy mountains. Instead, she prefers warmer climates, and you are more likely to see her at the beach.
The chances of finding her at the beach are random but improve if you have a base there. This can be as simple as constructing a makeshift tent at the beach with Tarp and a stick.
Her spawns are random and can even happen on your first day on the island. As soon as you see her, make sure you put away anything in your hand or she will get scared and run away.
If she runs away do not chase her, let her calm down and approach you.
How to recruit Virginia Sons of the Forest
As mentioned, Virginia is a very shy NPC who will run away from you if you have a weapon in your hands. Make sure you put any weapons away as soon as you see her by pressing the G key.
The general consensus is that the best way to recruit Virginia is to stay still and not interact with her. Let Virginia approach you. Repeat the process every time she visits you and she will eventually let her guard down and relax at your camp.
You'll know you've won her over when you get a gift from Virginia and when you get the prompt to give her items when you get close to her.
She can wield both the pistol and the shotgun at the same time and has an unlimited amount of ammo when doing so.
You can also give her a GPS tracker, ensuring that you keep tabs on her location. This can be helpful as, unlike Kelvin, you cannot command her to follow you.
