Malcolm (December 18 –~December 18, 2077) was a survivor of the Great War and the twin brother of Eugene in 2077.

Background[edit | edit source]

Malcolm and his twin brother Eugene survived the Great War together and arrived and the Reeb Marina on November 2. Their plan was to work together to repair a vessel to escape the chaos that Massachusetts devolved into.[1][2] This however was not to be as their personalities and sibling rivalry would be their undoing.

Although they both firmly believed that family should stick together by November 22 their relationship was strained to the breaking point. Each driving the other to apoplection, both over each other's bad habits but mostly over which direction to take. Malcolm wished to head north while Eugene wished to head south.[3][4] Their final argument left them communicating with each other via notes. Eugene would passive aggressively ask Malcolm to do something and Malcolm would respond with immature repugnance.[5] It got to the point that Malcolm threatened his brother over who owned the last of the coffee.[6]

By mid December they both snapped, each planning to kill the other and justifying it by blaming the other; and ironically in the same way. They both planned to manipulate the Mister Handy safety protocols. Programming the robots to surprise the other on their birthday – December 12 – then attacking and killing them. Eugene was the first to manipulate protocols – on the 12[7] – and falsely proposed to bury the hatchet. While Malcolm agreed and manipulated the Handys on the 17th.[8]

Eugene's plan went forward first, the robots killed his twin brother. Then Eugene put Malcolm's corpse in a coffin and placed it and a vase with flowers off to the side of the property. Afterward, when Eugene returned to the hangar the Handys he was greeted to the same happy birthday he gave to Malcolm. His skeleton still lies on the floor of the boathouse.[9][10]

Relationships[edit | edit source]

Malcolm was a contrarian, rather blunt slob, and a coffee addict – of which he was know to slurp extremely loudly. This was in complete contrast to his twin brother Eugene, whom was a passive aggressive, tidy, and pompous man. This was exacerbated by their stubbornness, and their sibling rivalry would get the better of them.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Malcolm is mentioned only in Fallout 4.
