You’ll be startled the first time you come across Virginia because of her 3 arms and 3 legs, but if you’re kind to her and give her space you’ll find that she’s a friend and not a foe.

If you put your weapons away and don’t approach her, Virginia will start to warm up to you and come around more frequently. One sign that you’re successfully befriending her is if she starts dancing when you’re watching her.
