Sons of the First: Find and Recruit Virginia – This is where you can meet the mutant

How to meet Virginia for the first time: In theory, you can find Virginia as soon as you start a save in Sons of the Forest. From the first minute there is a chance that the young mutant will meet you on your way through the forest. Sometimes she’s just walking through the forest, but you can also find her sitting on the banks of lakes and ponds, or bathing in a waterfall.

In any case, with her three arms and three legs and little dance routines, you can quickly recognize Virginia. But it is important that you do not approach her when you are holding a weapon in your hand. If you do, she will quickly become frightened and flee from you. The same applies, of course, if you injure them.

How to recruit Virginia as a companion: To get Virginia as a companion in Sons of the Forest, you just have to be as peaceful as possible with her. Don’t get too close to her, and don’t carry weapons near her. If you don’t hurt or threaten them, the way they treat you will change. First Virginia will be more social with you and bring you berries or other items. Once she’s done that a few times, she’ll then give you a thumbs-up, meaning you’re now allies.

Once you’ve made friends, Virginia will always stay near you or by your tent. While you cannot give Virginia orders, she will provide you with food of her own accord, and you can equip her with clothing and weapons. It will take a little time before she uses the weapons properly. But you should also take them with her, because Virginia can also die. So you should not neglect good self-defense.

What happens when Virginia dies? It would be advisable that you take care of Virginia’s health if you intend to keep her as a companion in Sons of the Forest for long. Both cannibals and mutants and the player character themselves can damage her, but since she always spawns in your closer radius, she cannot be killed in your absence.

However, if push comes to shove, you’ll have to live with the consequences. Once Virginia dies, she cannot respawn. So she stays dead for the rest of your save. Then it’s time to play Sons of the Forest multiplayer again – or look for another NPC companion.
