"My crimes? At least I'm not a human purist, you piece of shit! No, you know what? Screw you! Everything I've done to get here was to save the life of the Elder's Son! I could've had a team of my people, hell I could have done it myself. I could've walked into that bunker and killed the lot of them. Danse, everyone else! Might as well, they were all killed off anyway. But I didn't, I didn't do the easy thing.
Now I'm starting to regret it, because you Brotherhood pieces of shit never appreciate any form of kindness. There's no compromise with you, no 'honour' or any of that shit you preach about! So c'mon, you want to shoot me? Try it, just fucking try it. Even if you kill me, the people of Jamaica Plains and my friends will gun you and your people down, sending you and your last hope to keep the Maxson bloodline pure to hell!So do it, kill your Brotherhood and do me a favour! Because I'm sick of you assholes, I want you gone one way or another!" - Naomi to a Brotherhood Paladin, threatening to execute her. (Peace and Future Cannon Fodder 13)
Naomi Eastwood is the Sole Survivor of Vault 111 and the only living member of the Eastwood family. She is responsible for the resurrection of the Minutemen and assumed the role of its General as well as inheriting the role of Director, in the Institute.
Naomi was formerly a civil rights lawyer in the old world, making most of the family's income on her rather impressive salary. She and her husband Nate and their Son, Shaun were set for an easy life, enjoying a Utopian paradise, until that faitful morning in 2077.
Naomi and her family fled to the nearest Vault, barely escaping the atomic blasts as they engulfed the entire world. However, though their feeling of relief may have been a blessing at first, it was quickly taken advantage of as she and her family were tricked into going into Cryogenic stasis.
She awoke 200 years later, seeing that her rescuers, like her captors, weren't in fact there to save her. She remained trapped in her pod, forced to watch as Nate was gunned down and her baby ripped from his cold dead hands. Naomi eventually escaped and tracked her son across the wastes, eventually finding him and her place in this new world. She was not just the director of the subteranian scientific haven, beneath the Commonwealth but the director of the settlers above and so, she was able to tame the vast majority of Boston, making it one of the most thriving wastelands outside of California.
Fallout: New York
Though she doesn't technically appear in Fallout: New York, an Institute Agent uses her name as an Alias.

Naomi went missing, after returning from Nuka World and her lover, John Hancock and partner, Nick Valentine had to track her down.
She was informed of the Brotherhood of Steel's greatest secret, the only living child of Elder Maxson. He was seen as a prodical figure among the power armoured tech horders and they feared that she would kill him, uppon discovering him. Naomi actually sought to save him and got quite far in her attempt before being wounded and falling to the floor, crushing the infant beneath her.
The Sole Survivor was weak and was not conscious when the infant was ripped from her arms. As a result, she was not in the know as to whether or not she saved the child or if she had accidentally killed it. The Brotherhood took the Maxson child away and left the Commonwealth, vowing to return some day.

However, the distrust goes both ways after she lied to him about her involvement with Madison Li's death and as a result, tensions are quickly established and begin to rise.
