Every time I'm in the outer tunnels I swear I can hear children's laughter.
The Vault doctors say its just my mind compensating for the loss of Jason but I know I'm not crazy. They gave me new pills but pills are for crazy people! I refuse to take these pills!
I AM NOT CRAZY!”
After Peter lost his son Jason, he could hear children's laughter in the outer-tunnels. Hearing this caused him to go mad with grief. Unknown to him, he was not hallucinating, but simply hearing the children of Little Lamplight.
- His name may possibly be a reference to the film "The Shawshank Redemption", in the film the protagonist Andy Dufresne uses the alias "Peter Stevens".

- The Vault 87 Overseer's terminal claims Peter was never married, and never even had a child, and seem to express that he was simply going mad, though the cause is unknown. However, it should be noted that this content was removed from the game's final build, and therefore may or may not be canon. The note says:
This gentleman continues to impress me. He was just recently promoted to Technician Third Class by Chief Koster for his ingenuity and ability to think quickly in emergencies. Given these talents, I think he'd make an excellent candidate for Koster's eventual successor if the need should ever arise.
UPDATE: It seems Peter has suffered some sort of a nervous breakdown. He keeps claiming that his "son" is missing and his "wife" is in deep depression, although I have no records of him ever being married or having a child. I've recommended that he be taken to the Test Labs for observation and sedation if need be.
