If you hadn’t noticed yet, our little farming community is experiencing one of its worst droughts ever. The rainy season was unusually short this year, and our crops are dead or dying from lack of water. To put it bluntly, our community is on the verge of withering away with our crops.

Jo is the leader of Modoc in Fallout 2.


To the casual observer, Jo is an average person, without any memorable features.[1] However, claiming that he is average would be doing him a disservice. As the leader of Modoc, Jo handles all the duties of a mayor, sheriff, trader, and justice of the peace. He is very concerned about the survival of his little community and is willing to go to extreme lengths to ensure its survival, including self-mutilation.

Effects of player actions

  • The player can coerce Jo into cutting off his right pinky finger in exchange for helping Modoc. If the player doesn't stop him, they receive bad karma. If they mock him afterwards (telling him to saute it in a butter sauce), Jo will whip out his shotgun and shoot.
  • If Jo dies, Bo takes his place as Justice of the Peace.
