Constance Blackhall was an ancestor of Obadiah Blackhall who is mentioned in the Fallout 3 add-on Point Lookout.

Background[edit | edit source]

The Blackhall family was highly influential in the intense commercialization of Point Lookout. When Constance was left widowed by the New Plague in 2058, she opened talks with Isla Negra Holdings which eventually led to the modernization of Pilgrim's Landing.[1]

Personally, Constance Blackhall was obsessed with the occult. She turned her newfound wealth into a means of acquiring archaic texts and artifacts. The most notorious of these was the Krivbeknih. Constance drew a small circle of devotees to herself, styling herself a priestess of an obscure sect based around the book. Constance lived an unnaturally long life, even in the radiation soaked marshes of Point Lookout. Local legend states that the Krvibeknih was stolen from her, and without it the woman succumbed to a death that should have found her generations before.[2]

Her legacy, having permeated the provincial culture of Point Lookout, persisted, but what little structure existed within that group deteriorated with no form of leadership. Theirs is not so much a faith as a collection of incoherent chants and rituals, their meanings long forgotten.[2]

According to dialogue taken from the original, cut version of the Point Lookout quest The Dark Heart of Blackhall, Constance had an "obsession with the occult". This obsession was shared with her brother, Richard Dunwich, owner of the company that built the Dunwich Building.

    The last descendant of the Blackhalls, a famous (some say infamous) family of wealth in the history of Point Lookout, Obadiah is stubborn and is still entranced by an old book his family once lost. The Blackhall family was deeply involved in the commercialization of Point Lookout in the early 21st century. Constance Blackhall, head of the estate after the New Plague made her an unexpected widow in 2058, cooperated with entrepreneurs from the Isla Negra Realty Company, who had been trying to acquire family real estate unsuccessfully for years. Despite overwhelming local cultural resistance, Isla Negra persistently attempted to bring tourism and modernization to Point Lookout and St. Mary's County."

    The Blackhalls have stubbornly clung to existence, but Obadiah appears to the last of their line. He knows that the Krivbeknih has found its way back to Point Lookout, and intends to reclaim it, with the hopes of restoring power over the swampfolk to his family."
