Foreman (Fallout 4)
Background[edit | edit source]
Originally from South Boston, he was living in Georgia when he enlisted. A self-centered youth who wanted to play with guns, he believed that enlisting in the Army was just a way to blow things up in the name of God and Uncle Sam. His time in the service changed all that. If his time overseas taught him one thing, it's that war changes people. He understood what service really means, and applied this hard learned life lesson to his union supervisory position after retiring. In his words "It may not be the same as guard duty for a camp of 800 soldiers, but it's something."
He acquired his new carer from his friend Roger soon after he left the service. For which he was very thankful. The supervisory position was near his old neighborhood, and the Union had a placement program for veterans that helped him get the foreman gig without too much fuss. And his personal logs were protected from federal search, seizure, or subpoena by Union Article 21:16-C.
Unfortunately the good times were coming to a close. On October 30, 2077 he received a strange telephone call from Lavonne. He hadn't seen her in some time; since the briefing room in Portland. Now she calls him up about her nephew's baseball team? It was some sort of code, she was trying to warn him of the impending incoming. "Sending the team home to be with their families." He told his staff that it was a Union thing.
Saturday morning, October 23, 2077 he was sleeping in his office chair when it happened. In the increasingly chaotic landscape he concluded correctly that the Chinese missed the city with the big nuclear weapon. From what he could gather over the radio Framingham was struck, not devastated but gone. Boston however was not in good shape either; he took solace in the fact that he had his factory locked down to hole up in and that if he hadn't received the call he would've been vaporized.
Despite his preparations, or lack thereof, the foreman is not at the factory. It still lies idle, just as they left it that fateful day. His office is still full of his personal belongings. He may have left when he ran out of food, or he may have left when the radiation became too much.
Personality[edit | edit source]
A grizzled patriot, this long serving former officer loved to serve his nation, and later his teamsters. He also was a smoker, preferring cigars, and loved liquor. Due to his age he also had bad eyesight, using a magnifying glass to compensate.
