Dr. Patricia Tannis is a non-player character who is integral to the main storyline of Borderlands and provides missions in Borderlands 2. Tannis makes a return in Borderlands 3 as an important side-character that assists the new Vault Hunters in their goal to stop the Children of the Vault.

Dr. Tannis has her own tumultuous backstory that starts when she was hired by the Dahl corporation for her expertise in Eridian artifacts and technology. They hired her to seek out the hidden vault on Pandora.

During her stay there she had several breakdowns as a result of the harsh environment and most of her colleagues dying. The Dahl corporation eventually lost interest in the vault and stopped all efforts to find it, but Dr.Tannis was not done and she became obsessed with finding it even staying behind on the planet.

She was now using the various bandit clans to assist her in her research but she was betrayed by the Bandits and in turn secluded herself to her dig site thanks to an irrational phobia of the world outside. It was at this point that she sent out signals calling for the help of Vault Hunters to aid in her research.

Curtis having almost 50 years of acting experience under her belt is sure to bring the colourful role of Dr.Tannis to life, adding to the expectations that this new movie is building, as it adds more and more stars to the roster.

It is still unsure when the movie will be released but it is shaping up to be one of the most highly anticipated video game movies of recent years.
