Mini-FOT Logo.pngThe following is based on Fallout Tactics and some details might contradict canon.

Bishop Defcon is the spiritual leader of the ghoul town of Gravestone in 2197.


Before the Great War, Kansas City was a major nuclear launch site. After the city became yet another victim of the nuclear holocaust, a number of silo staff managed to survive, yet were turned into ghouls, who eventually founded a town called Gravestone in the ruins of the city.

The ghouls formed a cult worshiping the only nuclear bomb left intact in the silo, which they called "Plutonius". The ghoul in charge of both the town and the ghouls' weird religion was called Bishop, and was referred to as Defcon, the son of T-Minus.

Defcon is a particularly leathery ghoul, and like Harold, grows a little bonsai out of the back of his head.

Behind the scenes

DEFCON is an acronym standing for DEFenses readiness CONdition. It is a scale matched to severity of military situations that is used by the Joint Chiefs of Staff and commanders of unified commands. The scale goes from 5 to 1 where 5 is the standard peace-time readiness, and 1 is an imminent attack on American soil with WMDs. During the '50s, DEFCON 1 was supposed to precede an all-out nuclear attack.
