There he is, hold it right there!

— John Kendall, Fallout 3.

John Kendall is a security officer in Vault 101 in Fallout 3.

Background[edit | edit source]

Tough, friendly, and no-nonsense, he’s not actively sinister, but he’ll follow orders without thinking about it too much. He is not an introspective sort of guy: he loves being a cop and doesn't worry about whether what he’s doing is right; he is the law.[1]

During the Lone Wanderer's tenth birthday party on July 13, 2268, Officer Kendall can be overheard talking with the Overseer in the stairway to the Upper Level. Officer Kendall is assigned by the Overseer to give the party just a few more minutes and then make sure everyone gets back to work.

Relationships[edit | edit source]

He is the husband of Mary Kendall and the father of Christine and Monica.
