The V’vault Dweller saved us -- all of us. Do you understand? It didn’t matter that we were ghouls. For once it didn’t matter. We w’were people again. W’worth saving.

Lenny is a ghoul doctor in Gecko in Fallout 2.

Background[edit | edit source]

Lenny is particularly short and old for a ghoul, having turned into one at a mature age.[3] Before the Great War transformed him, he was an accomplished medical doctor, with a practice in Bakersfield. When the war came, he and his father, William, sought refuge in Vault 12 beneath the city. Unfortunately, the Vault was designed to malfunction and the entire Vault Dweller population was turned into ghouls. Lenny used his talents to help others in the Necropolis, flying under Set's radar and avoiding violence. This helped him survive the super mutant attack intact.[4]

Around 2161, the stuttering ghoul saw a man running through the city: The Vault Dweller. He instantly recognized him as an outsider and when he passed by, he almost reached out to stop him, to ask if he could join his quest.[5] But he didn't, he lacked the courage to do so. He never forgave himself for this, especially when he learned that the Vault Dweller wiped out the Master's laboratories, destroying the Unity.

Of course, before he heard that, Lenny and his father just barely survived the super mutant retaliation that killed most ghouls in Necropolis. He migrated north, until he finally arrived in Gecko, where he settled as a doctor and aide to Harold, helping manage the town's affairs and healing those who were hurt.[4] The neigbouring Vault City quickly turned out to be a painful reminder of his fate as a ghoul. If given the chance, he'd trade his extreme lifespan in for a life as a regular human, using Vault City's technology to heal himself. But VC-grade bigotry would never allow that.[6]

He resigned himself to a life of a glorified bureaucrat, until the Chosen One arrived in the city, Lenny unexpectedly received a second shot at a grand quest to save the wastes.[7]

Interactions with the player character[edit | edit source]

Interactions overview[edit | edit source]

FriendlyFoe.png
This character is a permanent party member.

Companion[edit | edit source]

  • The player can recruit Lenny through dialogue. Lenny will gladly join, unless the player has any negative reputations (Slaver, Childkiller, Berserker), less than 1 karma, or destroyed the power plant.
  • Recruiting him earns the player +5 karma and improves Gecko reputation.
  • His animation frames (NAVGHUL) only allow him to use unarmed weapons, knives, pistols, and submachine guns.
  • Lenny is a decent support character, but care needs to be taken to ensure that he has the right weapons. He has 4 Strength, meaning most higher end pistols and SMGs will be out of his reach, except for the H&K P90c. Outfitting him in power armor is a good way to fix the problem.
  • Lenny's primary use is to use him as a doctor. He can and will heal the player in combat.

Rescue Coffin Willie[edit | edit source]

  • The player can dig up Coffin Willie in Golgotha. Doing so will not grant the Grave Digger reputation. The specific grave is noted for its aura and a marker which says "Here lies the dumbest son of a bitch to ever set foot to New Reno." It is located in the south-western part of the area. Willie has little to say to his son, however.[1]

Notable quotes[edit | edit source]

  • "Physician, heal thyself."
