You’ll find Marika inside The Viewport, which is located in the first hub city of New Atlantis. The Viewport is found on the Space Port portion of the map, so feel free to fast travel here if you’re looking to add her to your team quickly.

Speaking to her, she’ll be willing to join your crew for a price. If you’re confident in your Persuasion skills, however, you can get her to drop her cost by half. Once you have gotten her on your team, you can place her wherever you would like her to be and continue exploring the galaxy together.

Marika Boros Stats in Starfield

Every character has their own special abilities and skills that they bring to the table, and you’ll find Marika’s below:

  • Ballistics: Two-Star.
  • Particle Beam Weapon Systems: One-Star.
  • Shotgun Certification: One-Star.

While she may not be the most powerful ally to start, we can only assume that you can continue to grow her skills and make her into the ultimate space badass she’s meant to be. However, her knowledge of Ballistics and her Shotgun Certification may prove useful as you engage enemies in combat.


Marika is best assigned on your ship’s weapon systems, given her knowledge of particle beam weapons.

No matter if you want to keep her by your side for the whole adventure or if you’d prefer to keep her at the outpost, Marika is going to make the early-game combat encounters a little easier to swallow.
