Naledi Atkins diary
Modified me bathy to be the fastest vessel in this burg. Suddenly, there's all these restrictions. Bathy travel's shut down. Yeah? Didn't come down here to be caught in a tank.
― Naledi Atkins[src]

Naledi Atkins (often referred to as the Pilot) is one of the playable characters in BioShock 2 Multiplayer. She was the fourth character to be shown on the Cult of Rapture's Faces of Rapture's Civil War. She speaks with an Australian accent.

"Naledi Atkins is a fearless pilot with a love for the mechanical and kinetic. Before she came to Rapture, she was well known around the world for her feats of daring. A fellow pilot, Cal Whitkins, noted her disappearance on the surface and commented that she had probably gone in search of some great adventure. In Rapture her ravenous appetite for adventure is the primary factor in deciding which contracts Naledi will accept as a freelance pilot of submersibles. Naledi lives her life as dictated by the demands of the moment, and does not deal in regret. She lives her life always at least one step ahead of boredom."

Years ago, Naledi nearly drowned while spelunking, only to be saved by a friend. The near-death experience gave Naledi a thrill she hoped to reproduce by traveling to Rapture. It is there where she fell in love with the Bathysphere system, even owning her own personal "bathy". On the night of Eleanor Lamb's kidnapping, she was one of the three citizens who attacked Subject Delta. Atkins was no match for Delta, however, and he quickly threw her to the side. It is assumed she was a part of the "Family" during these events (due to Sofia Lamb's role in the abduction) but nothing has formally tied Naledi to the Rapture Family. Following the 1958 New Year's Eve Riots, and the subsequent lockdown of all bathysphere travel, Naledi sought other ways to get an adrenaline rush. This ultimately leads her to relying solely on splicing to feel good.

Naledi AtkBio2Model

Naledi's pre-splice model.

Before SplicingEdit


Despite moving under the ocean, Naledi never forgot her aviator background. She still wears a green pilot jumpsuit over a white shirt and silk ascot, knee high lace-up brown boots, and black leather gloves. A brown leather harness wraps around her waist, shoulders, and thighs, and also provides a holster for her pistol. Her auburn colored hair is kept short with a small strand hanging over the right side of her face. She also has an aviator helmet and googles to match her outfit, which can be worn as an accessory.

New Years EveEdit

Naledi is encountered by Delta on New Years Eve in 1958, and its clear that she is already starting to suffer from the negative effects of splicing. Her pilot outfit is still in good condition, but she has large dark circles under her eyes and the right side of her face is beginning to sag.

After SplicingEdit

Naledi's lust for adventure led her to fight for the thrill during the civil War and soon ADAM was the only thrill she needed. The jumpsuits left leg is torn off as are both arms, but she still has a glove on her right hand. Her collar is loosened and her ascot is hanging over her chest. The right side of her face has many scars and bruises. Her left eye is sunken in and she has some missing skin on the middle of her nose. She has long patches of what appears to be extra skin on her face, right arm and left leg.

Behind the ScenesEdit

  • In the prologue of BioShock 2, she is seen in the Adonis Luxury Resort moments before the attack at the Kashmir Restaurant. But if the player chooses her as his/her character in BioShock 2 Multiplayer, she is at her apartment at the same time, waking up from her first Splice, while in the Adonis, you can clearly see the side effect of ADAM.
  • Naledi and Louie McGraff  are the only two Multiplayer characters that have three character models; besides the "before Splicing" and the in-game model, there is a third model seen in Adonis Luxury Resort in the prologue for BioShock 2. When she is seen by Delta, her face is discolored and her eyes are bloodshot. Louie's model is also used in the prologue, but it is recolored to give the appearance of two different splicers.
  • Naledi shares several similarities with acclaimed female pilots like American Amelia Earhart or New Zealander Jean Batten.
