I'm Joseph, and as the oldest kid in Lamplight, I'm pretty much a teacher by default. I also try to keep the kids clean and fresh-faced.

— Joseph, Fallout 3.

Joseph is the eldest resident of Little Lamplight, at 15 years old[1] in Fallout 3.

Background[edit | edit source]

At 15, Joseph is the oldest resident of Little Lamplight. Perhaps as a result of his age (or the fact that he’ll have to leave soon), he has taken it upon himself to hold classes to educate other Lamplighters, covering whatever he feels they need to know (or whatever they show interest in). When not occupied teaching, he spends his time working on his computer or reading old textbooks that were long ago scavenged from Vault 87.[1]

Joseph teaches the history of the world and Lamplight Caverns to all the kids who volunteer to learn. The player can sit in on Joseph's class by visiting the Little Lamplight schoolhouse in the mornings. If pressed during conversation, Joseph explains that he and his predecessors began by teaching survival skills to younger children, but they were able to recover some Holodisks from Vault 87's classroom at some point, and this provided them limited teaching materials. Over time, all access was cut off from Vault 87, and nothing new has been recovered in several generations.

Relationships[edit | edit source]

His little sister is Penny.

Daily schedule[edit | edit source]

In the mornings he teaches kids in the classroom, and afterward he can be found down by the water in the Great Chamber.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • Joseph will not realize the player convinced the children to leave Penny behind during Rescue from Paradise, if they choose to do so. He will remain convinced all three were rescued.
  • Joseph is affected by the standard pathfinding bugs in the game. Leaving Little Lamplight and re-entering usually solves them.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Joseph appears only in Fallout 3.
