You might wear his badge, but you're not my dad.

Harden Simms, When wearing Lucas Simms' duster.

Harden Simms (born 2267) is an inhabitant of Megaton in Fallout 3.

Background[edit | edit source]

Son of Megaton's sheriff, Lucas Simms, Harden was born in 2267. His father has instructed him not to talk to strangers in Megaton, and he reluctantly obeys. He goes to sleep early and rises early, which gives him enough time to meet up with Maggie and play.[1] His dad named him after Old West outlaw John Wesley Harden.[2]

Gray paragraphs are based on Fallout 3 guide epilogue and have not been confirmed by primary sources By 2297, Harden, now in his thirties, has followed the footsteps of his late father, who was gunned down after confronting a criminal the Lone Wanderer turned in, and taken up the badge to sheriff Megaton. When drunk, Harden will tell that it was the Lone Wanderer that killed his father by not intervening in time.[3]

Daily schedule[edit | edit source]

He's a good friend of Maggie and is usually seen near her in the mid-morning to late afternoon.

Quests[edit | edit source]

  • The Power of the Atom: If Lucas Simms is dead when the Lone Wanderer disarms the bomb, Harden will reward the Lone Wanderer with a home in Megaton and any caps they requested at the beginning of the quest. He exhibits little emotion despite his father's death.

Other interactions[edit | edit source]

  • Sometimes it may be impossible to engage Harden in a regular dialogue, as he will say something like "I'm not supposed to talk with strangers" and continue walking or standing.
  • If Lucas Simms dies, Harden will claim to be the new self appointed sheriff.

    Harden is Lucas Simms's 10-year-old son. His father has instructed him not to talk to strangers in Megaton, and he reluctantly obeys. He goes to sleep early and rises early, which gives him enough time to meet up with Maggie and play."

  2. Fallout 3 Official Game Guide Game of the Year Edition p.82: "Lucas Simms
    He grew up in Megaton and understands better than anyone what it takes to survive and thrive in the Wasteland. Big and imposing yet warm and friendly, Lucas won his position by a unanimous vote of the people of Megaton (most of whom genuinely love the guy). He serves as mayor, sheriff, judge, and just about any other position that's needed. It's also no secret around Megaton that Lucas Simms is fulfilling some weird childhood cowboy fantasy. He named his son Harden after the Old West outlaw John Wesley Harden. Simms is also a member of a secret society known only as "the Regulators."
    (Fallout 3 Official Game Guide Game of the Year Edition Wasteland Census)
  3. Afterward: "Just about everyone in the Capital Wasteland has a story about the Lone Wanderer, even though precious few ever really knew him. But that doesn't stop them from telling crazy tall tales about how he saved their lives, or blew up a mountain, or ate a car or something. Heck, if you get Simms drunk, he'll tell you that his dad died because of the Wanderer, even though he saved the town. People can't even agree on whether the Wanderer was a man or a woman, much less a saint or a monster. But they all agree on one thing: the Lone Wanderer changed the Capital Wasteland."
