Name's Lucas Simms, town sheriff. And mayor too when the need arises.”— Lucas Simms, Fallout 3
Lucas Simms is the sheriff and mayor of Megaton in 2277.
Background[edit | edit source]
Simms was born in 2236. He grew up in Megaton and won his position by a unanimous vote of the town's citizens. He serves as mayor, sheriff, judge and just about any other position that's needed, his membership in the Regulators helping a great deal. It's also no secret around Megaton that Lucas Simms is fulfilling some weird childhood cowboy fantasy. He named his son Harden after the Old West outlaw John Wesley Harden. His position as Megaton's Mayor, is contested by Colin Moriarty, who considers himself to be the true power in Megaton.
In 2277, Sheriff Simms foiled an ill-conceived raid on Megaton by a band of raiders headquartered at Springvale Elementary School. During the conflict, Simms shot and killed the raiders' leader, Boppo.

Bugs[edit | edit source]
- Like all Fallout 3 non-player characters, Simms may disappear or die. Check Recovering missing NPC in Fallout 3 for help.needs verification
- He will sometimes follow the Lone Wanderer across the Wasteland. The reason for this is that the Lone Wanderer talked to him before he could auto-talk to you as you enter Megaton for the first entrance. Therefore he will follow you till he can initiate conversation with you.needs verification
