I'm thinking of going with "Overseer" for the last one. What did you put?”— Freddie Gomez, referring to the G.O.A.T.
Freddie Gomez is a resident of Vault 101 in Fallout 3.
Background[edit | edit source]
In the 2260s, Freddie is ridiculed by some of his peers. He is nicknamed 'Freddie the Freak' and is compared unfavorably to the comic book character Grognak the Barbarian.
In the early 2270s, Freddie is diagnosed with Vault depressive syndrome, or VDS, by the vault physician James. According to his medical file, Freddie suffers from lethargy, anxiety, and low self-esteem. Freddie copes with his insecurities and low self-esteem by acting out as a bully with his peers. James prescribes Chlorpromazine for Freddie; however, James is worried that his patient might be permanently on the medication.
Before the GOAT, Freddie is nervous. After Edwin Brotch orders pencils down and everyone else has left, Freddie is struggling with two questions on the test. Question #5 has him hanging on a moral quandary - should he obey his grandmother and kill the other resident, or should he disobey his grandmother since killing is wrong? The other question, Question #10, baffles him as the answers are all the same and he isn't sure if this is a trick question.
Relationships[edit | edit source]
Freddie is the only child of Herman and Pepper Gomez. Freddie is friendly with the Lone Wanderer.

- Fallout 3 Official Game Guide Game of the Year Edition p.73: "Freddie Gomez
Freddy is an aspiring Tunnel Snake, and his associations with Butch and the Tunnel Snakes have caused his grades to drop and send Pepper into fits of worry. In truth, Freddie isn't a bad kid; he just enjoys the approval he gets from Butch and the others when he misbehaves. And, of course, there really aren't many other people to hang out with in the Vault."
