In my world, a group of high-ranking politicians and military officials (along with their families and a few skilled engineers) realized that WW3 was imminent, and decided to bunker-down, big time: Using the most state-of-the-art technology, they built an impenetrable underground fortress, and remained within it for about 200 years.
About 180 years in, a woman named Christina Anders is born, unaware of life on the surface. But the surface dwellers still exist, and after encountering a group of them, she decides she wants to go up.
The surface is a wasteland. The region they’re in is a giant desert basically, with only a few scattered regions of fertile plant growth, and dozens of still existing radioactive hotspots.
This question came to me the other day: since Christina grew up underground her entire life, would this have any dire effects on her survival in the wasteland? If so, what are good ways for me to deal with said problems?
Context- The bunker dwellers live underground enclosed within the bunkers confines. I imagine something like a small underground town, made of metal and concrete. They have air, and lighting and whatnot, and are completely self-sufficient, growing food and producing/recycling water. Also all this is done with modern day tech.
