Proto id00000102 (Reactor Ghoul)

Hello there. I’m Festus. I run the whole reactor. Without me, this whole town would be shut down. I’m a very busy man. They really overwork me here.

Festus is the supervisor[1] of the Poseidon Oil nuclear reactor № 5 in Gecko in Fallout 2.


A glum looking ghoul with a particularly rancid appearance, Festus smells like an infected wound and is a particularly unkempt fellow,[1] even by ghoul standards. He considers himself to be a true genius, a prodigy with everything he undertakes. His inflated ego is likely a function of the fact that he has been appointed the supervisor of the entire atomic plant, tasked with ensuring that everything runs smoothly. Of course, nobody could foresee that doing so would turn Festus into an incredibly arrogant ghoul, covering up gaps in his ability with outrageous claims.
