Abdul comes again, on the feast of the weaker. Feast for the Deep... Temple... Born again, here. Alhazred! G’yeth... G’yeth...”— Jaime Palabras, Fallout 3.
Background[edit | edit source]
Jaime was born in the Midwest to a Ranger. His father returned to camp from an expedition with a thick book, bound in odd black leather and stamped with strange glyphs. Convinced the book would fetch a high price, his father traveled to the Capital Wastes to offer it to the Brotherhood of Steel Scribes. Despondent, Jaime’s father vowed to return the book “to its source.” Abandoned by his father in a hospital, Jaime eventually set out searching for his father. Jaime tracked his father south from an unknown location across vast distances.
He eventually fell in with another group of travelers who, as it turns out, were violent gang of raiders. It was not long until they killed a family for a "sack of rotten vegetables." Jaime secretly resolved to get away from this dangerous group as soon as possible.The opportunity to escape presented itself when the raiders prepared to attack a group of traders. Jaime turned on the raiders, earning the thanks of the traders. Grateful, the trader group told him where his father headed.
Following his father's trail Jaime headed to the Dunwich Building. Where he found, and possibly killed, his father who had, by that time, become a ghoul. In his audiologs, he recalls hearing the raiders tell "spook stories" about "zombies" inside Dunwich, which were apparently true. Afterward, Jaime picked up the strange book his father had been keeping and decided to rest against an unusual obelisk in the bottom of the building. Upon awakening, he had begun the process of mutating into a ghoul due to the radiation emitted from the obelisk (Jamie can be heard mutating at the end of Jaime's personal journal entry 08 and throughout entry 09). Once awoken and fully ghoulified, Jaime had become completely insane and had also begun worshiping the obelisk and an entity named Abdul.
