I place the good of the Vault in front of everything, even my own paternal feelings. We must NOT allow sentiment to cloud our judgement!”— Alphonse Almodovar, Fallout 3.
Alphonse Almodovar is the Overseer of Vault 101 in Fallout 3.
Background[edit | edit source]
Growing up in Vault 101 during a time when the vault dwellers ventured freely into the outside world, Alphonse's parents believed the vault should have no contact with the dangers out there. As he got older, Alphonse knew he had to correct the gross lapses in security. He got his chance when the Overseer - a strong proponent of outside contact - disappeared one day while out in the wasteland. Many suspected foul play, but the young, charismatic, strong-willed Alphonse Almodovar offered the vault dwellers new leadership, and they had little choice but to accept.
Unlike his predecessor, Alphonse Almodovar adopts a policy of total isolationism for Vault 101: "No one ever enters. No one ever leaves." Between 2258 and 2259, he makes an exception to the new lockdown policy and accepts James and his child into the vault, with the father assigned as the new vault physician. In 2260, Almodovar is widowed and left a single father when his wife dies from an unknown disease.

- Growing Up Fast: The Overseer presents the Lone Wanderer with the Pip-Boy 3000 at their 10th birthday party.
- Escape!: When James escapes, Almodovar thinks that the Lone Wanderer had something to do with it, so he sends his security officers after the Lone Wanderer. He orders the death of Jonas after James' escape and interrogates his own daughter during the Lone Wanderer's escape.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- There is a photograph of Alphonse and his daughter Amata in Amata's room.
- During Trouble on the Homefront his computer terminal reveals that, after the Lone Wanderer left, the Enclave contacted the Vault in an attempt to gain access, but he denied them entry as he would not trust the lives of the Vault inhabitants to outsiders.
- He will call the Lone Wanderer "young man" even if they are female during dialogue in Trouble on the Homefront. Also, he's always identified as "The Overseer", even if he relinquishes the position to Amata.
- At your 10th birthday before you go to the reactor level, if you follow the Overseer he goes past the reactor, goes up some stairs and engages in a dialog with Officer John Kendall, during which he says "The only reason I came is because Amata's friends with the brat."
- If you fight him during the quest Escape!, he will say "The Overseer will hear about this!" even though he is the Overseer.
- If you do not fight him and instead agree to turn yourself in, he will confiscate your weapons then he immediately use them against you.
- Although Officer Stevie Mack killed Jonas, he will say he ordered Security Chief Paul Hannon, Sr. to in Trouble on the Homefront.
- He will also appear as one of your hallucinations in Vault 106.
Noteable quotes[edit | edit source]
- "This is the overseer, all residents of Vault 101 are here by confined to their quarters. The radroach infestation is under control, do not interfere with vault security personnel. Any resident found outside his or her quarters will be dealt with... severely. That is all." (during Escape!)
