Getting Virginia is a bit tougher than what you did with Kelvin. She is easily scared and will run away if you run toward her with a weapon or anything in your hand. So, whenever you spot her, make sure that you press “G” to holster whatever you are holding and then slowly approach her.

You will have to repeat this process the first few times when you see her. If done correctly, you will be able to eventually hand her a weapon that she can use to either defend herself or protect you. Keep in mind that you cannot give her specific tasks like collecting logs like you would with Kelvin.

The good news is that you can start spotting her relatively early in the game. During your exploration of the forest, you will see a three-legged lady in the distance watching curiously. Slowly approach her without any weapons.

She will scare away for the first few times but eventually, she won’t run far. At that point, do your daily tasks until she comes up to you. Now, you can interact with Virginia without any issues. Once you gain her trust, you can use a weapon around her, and she won’t run away.

Using her in combat is extremely beneficial as she can pack quite a punch – as one would assume considering she has three arms as well.


That’s everything you need to know about how to get Virginia as a companion in Sons of the Forest. Getting her can be a bit confusing if you do not know what to do. However, follow this guide and you will gain her trust within the first few times you see her.
