Hello, my name’s Balthas. I run the tannery here in Modoc. Can I help you?

Balthas is the tanner of Modoc in Fallout 2.

Background[edit | edit source]

A heavy set man wearing a leather apron and smelling of leather, Balthas is easily recognizable as Modoc's tanner. Where Grisham's slaughterhouse produces meat, Balthas takes care of the remainder of the brahmin, producing high quality leather goods for sale, constantly experiment with different curing processes to increase their resilience.

He is also a family man and loves his son, Jonny, a great deal. His recent disappearance causes him no end of pain, particularly when his prayers go unanswered.
