Stay close - we'll both be better for it.

Jacob Humboldt is one of the inhabitants of Point Lookout in the year 2277.

Background

Fascinated by the ancient history of the United States of America, Jacob is a keen collector of Confederate memorabilia, and is currently testing out his recent historically inaccurate shotgun before he goes Ghoul hunting in the swamps.[1]

He is one of the members of Plik's little hunting club, and accompanies you during Plik's Safari.

Quests

  • Plik's Safari: Humboldt will fight along side you during the "safari".

Effects of player actions

Jacob accompanies you during the Plik's Safari quest, and helps you fight off feral ghouls. He will most likely die during the course of the Safari, unless he is reverse-pickpocketed higher level weapons and armor. If he survives the initial Safari, he simply disappears from the game.

Notes

  • If he survives, he will say "Mr. Plik has done it again" (although he also says this before starting) hinting that he may have managed to survive a safari before. However, most would assume that is not possible because of his poor stats.
  • He actually has great Small Guns skill, but his health is only marginally higher than average, making him unsuited for surviving prolonged combat.
  • He is likely to survive a little longer than the other participant in the Safari, Rip Smithy, as his weapon will do more damage than Smithy's lever-action rifle.

Notable quotes

  • "Mr. Plik's really outdone himself this time."
  • "Stay close - we'll both be better for it."
  • "Good show! Very well fought."
  • "Warmest regards."

Appearances

Jacob Humboldt appears only in the Fallout 3 add-on Point Lookout.
