Our abolitionist hero!

Hannibal Hamlin is the leader of the Temple of the Union in the year 2277 and he is an escaped slave from Paradise Falls. He dreams of creating a safe haven for runaway slaves in the Lincoln Memorial.

Background[edit]

Born in 2240, Hamlin is a fanatical Abolitionist, stemming from his 23 years as a slave at Paradise Falls before he fled his captors. He has spent the last six of his 37 years doing everything in his power to help escaped slaves and fight the scourge of slavery. In 2274, he found Lincoln’s head and established the community of Temple of the Union to free all slaves from slavers, and keep run-away slaves hidden from their owners.[1]

Quests[edit]

  • Head of State: Hannibal asks the player to check the Lincoln Memorial for super mutants and to get the Lincoln Memorial Poster for Caleb. When you get to the Lincoln Memorial you'll find out it's inhabited by Slavers. At this point you can tell Hannibal about the slavers or turn him, and everyone else, in to Leroy Walker. If you tell Hannibal about the slavers he'll ask you to kill them, and after killing them you can tell him it's safe to go to the memorial. As a reward he'll give you the schematics - dart gun.
  • Lincoln's Profit Margins: Hamlin is one of the potential buyers for Lincoln-related artifacts.Pays more for "good" Lincoln artifacts like his diary, and less for "bad" ones like the John Wilkes Booth poster.
