"It's you from the bookstand... Did you come to bring my cockatoo back?"

Billie Méjean, known in-game as the working class woman, is a character in Disco Elysium.

Background[]

Billie Méjean is a simple working class woman who has worked several jobs, at the same time raising two kids, sixteen-year-old Jolie and seventeen-going-on-eighteen Jennie.[1] She has had three marriages in her life. She has come outside to look for her family, as the supper is nearly ready. Her teenage daughters have been missing for a night - "A boy trouble," she remarks - and her current husband, Victor, has not been around for a week. She has a steady passion for bloody and violent history books.

Interactions[]

  • She will appear on Day 2 standing outside the bookstore. If asked, she will insist that while she does not know where exactly her husband is, he is not missing.[2] The player can take it on themselves to find him for her anyway. Talk to the drunk nearby, then speak to the working class woman again to begin the task.
  • Exhausting her dialogue options at the bookstand will grant the task Find your heraldic bird, allowing you to steal or purchase the book From A to Zrieek! A Guide to Cockatoos at the Bookstore.

Behind the scenes[]

The working class woman is voiced by Tegen Hitchens in both The Final Cut and the original version of the game.
