  1. Fallout 3 Official Game Guide Game of the Year Edition p.72: "Ethyl
    When he's not operating on Ghouls with a variety of odd ailments, Doctor Barrows is closely studying a small collection of patients who have succumbed to massive amount of radiation, turned feral, and become Glowing One subjects, such as Ethyl (whose picture was taken before she "turned"). Ethyl is housed in an inaccessible containment chamber adjacent to his Chop Shop surgery."
