Judy Profile and Background

Judy Alvarez Image Judy Alvarez
Full Name Judy Alvarez
Job Braindance Editor
District Watson
Gender Female
Affiliation Moxes
Voice Actor Carla Tassara

In-Game Description

One of braindance's most gifted editors and a skilled techie. If she wanted to, she could get hired at any corpo entertainment studio and make bank, but Judy values her independence too much to sell out - she rejects every offer that comes her way. Her anarchist spirit drew her to the Mox in the hope that they could improve the lives of people in Night City. Her biggest flaw is that she can't keep her mouth shut in the face of injustice - something that always gets her in trouble. For some, though, it's her greatest virtue.

How to Romance Judy

Judy Can Be Romanced

Cyberpunk 2077 - Judy Alvarez

Gender Female

Judy is available as one of the Romance options, but only for Female V. If you're hoping to romance Judy, be sure to choose a female character at the start of the game, as this aspect cannot be changed at any time.

Judy Questline Choices

Both Sides, Now
Accept Her Request Immediately When Judy calls, you always want to say yes right away rather than turn her down.
Accept Right Away Like with the previous quest, you want to tell Judy you'll come as soon as you can. This will go for every other phone call you receive from Judy going forward.
Talkin' 'Bout A Revolution
Join in on the Plan Near the end of the quest after you fight Tom, choose "You can count on me." to advance to the next quest.
Don't Accept Her Money Judy will offer to pay you for the job, so decline and choose "Out of the question."
No Relic Talk The relic will malfunction, causing Judy to worry. We don't need to worry her anymore so choose "Forget about it. It's passed."
Spend the Night
Finally, during the same dialogue, accept her offer to let you stay the night when she asks.
Don't Go With Maiko
In the penthouse choose the following dialogue options:
"Let's do this."
"Do my best. Jack 'em out."
"Hold on, think you've gone too far."
"Let's cut to the quick." Then kill the Tyger Claw bosses.
"You tried to cheat us all."
Then kill Maiko to be eligible for Judy's final quest.
Pyramid Song
Spend the Night When given the option to stay at the lakehouse with Judy, respond with "Why not."
Kiss Her
You will later get the option to kiss her, so do so.
Enter a Relationship
Finally, in the morning during your last conversation, choose "The beginning of something amazing." to lock it in. This will unlock her apartment as an additional safehouse.
