Karl is a member of the Family in Fallout 3 in Fallout 3.

Background

Karl born in 2240 is very gruff and has a short fuse; he prefers not to speak to people. He is always highly suspicious of people and prefers to think the worst of them. Karl is distinguished by his unusual haircut: long blond hair, which is not common for a man of his bulky stature.[1]

He used to own a shop in Megaton with his wife, Skyler, until they were invited to Meresti station by Vance, the leader of the Family, who met them while gathering supplies. He had felt a strong kinship with them and invited them to join him. Skyler and Karl agreed and moved. Skyler died some time before 2277, though Karl stayed in Meresti.[1]

In truth, Karl doesn't believe in Vance's vampiric teachings he plays along in order to keep his store in Meresti.

Quests

Blood Ties: Karl is one of the gang members suspected by the people of Arefu of killing the West family.

Store

  • His store is open between 3 pm and 8 pm (unlike other stores, open approx. 8 am to 6 pm). He may sell blood packs that can be donated to Vance for a major cash bonus.
  • Karl's stock is one of the largest in the game, as a result of it being coded to include all items in the Meresti station.
  • Notable wares include Stealth Boys, an advanced radiation suit, and a fair amount of microfusion cells.

Other interactions

  • With the Black Widow perk or a high enough strength level, Karl can be "convinced" into giving the password of the security computer terminal.
  • Vance's conversations with him indicate that Karl is the one responsible for the slaughter of Arefu's brahmin.
