Leonard Boyarsky was a Vault City geneticist who was exiled for murder in 2232.

Background[edit | edit source]

Leonard Boyarsky was exiled in 2232 for murder and unauthorized research (the research allegations revolved around some tampering with the pregnancy cycles in the Auto-Doc that apparently put all of Vault 8 in danger, but the details were deleted from the Vault 8 computer). His crime occurred many years after Richard Moreau's alleged crime, but Boyarsky only got as far as New Reno with a traveling caravan before he was robbed and killed by Reno toughs who saw him as an easy mark (which pretty much is true for everyone traveling from Vault City). His reasons for traveling south were unknown, but it is rumored his original destination was east of Reno - even though explorers report there is nothing out there except desert and deathclaws.[1][2]

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Leonard Boyarsky is mentioned in Fallout 2 and Fallout Bible 5. Furthermore his grave can be found in both generic graveyards and Golgotha in Fallout 2.[3]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

Leonard Boyarsky was named for the Fallout developer Leonard Boyarsky.[1]

I remember that there was another person exiled from the VC - Leonard Boyarski. He also was exiled for a murder but I'm curious how did he die? I've found his grave on the Golgotha and it's quite surprising. ps. If there are any mistakes, sorry for my English. :-)
    Boyarsky was an in-joke to Leonard Boyarsky who originally worked on F1 and parts of F2 (one of the five billion developer references in Fallout 1 and 2). I think the name was originally Jason Anderson in the text, but I don't remember.

    Joanne Lynette: "{345}{lyn045}{Murderers, both of them. Boyarsky was exiled ten years ago, and Richard Moreau was exiled shortly after we left the Vault. Citizenship is a sacred trust -- crime is not tolerated within our walls.}"
