I got no compassion left for those mindless freaks. But they were a nice deterrent keeping out smoothskin bastards like yourself.

Roy Phillips is a ghoul living in the Warrington tunnels in Fallout 3.

Background

Roy is the leader of a group of Ghoul dissidents living inside the Warrington Metro tunnels. They have decided to try to force Mr. Allistair Tenpenny to let them move into his tower. Of course, he has refused, considering them to be worthless and unpleasant "zombies".[1]

Roy is an ex-cop and his no-nonsense, black-and-white world view has carried over into his new life as Ghoul. He’s come to terms with his Ghoulhood and demands that humans treat Ghouls with respect. He has no patience for bigots.[1] Sanders tried talking some sense into him, that Ghouls should set up their own settlement, but it seems Roy chose not to listen to him.[2]

Quests

Effects of player actions

  • Depending on how the Lone Wanderer handles the quest Tenpenny Tower, he may reside there.
  • If the Lone Wanderer gets Roy in to the tower peacefully, he will eventually kill everyone inside (besides the ghouls). This includes Allistair Tenpenny, Herbert Dashwood and the security personnel.
  • If the Lone Wanderer completes the Tenpenny Tower quest before doing The Power of the Atom, and chooses to destroy Megaton in the latter, Roy will have a short discussion with Burke on Tenpenny's balcony. After expressing shock at Burke's ability to infiltrate the tower, he warms up considerably when he learns of Burke's plan to blow up "that smoothskin shithole".

Other interactions

  • Even by asking Roy about the human residents, then finding the bodies in the storage room, then asking Roy about the killings, you will still lose Karma if you execute him for it.

    Sanders knew better than most. He was always telling Roy Phillips his delusions of grandeur were misplaced, and that Ghouls should set up their own settlement, away from those who would seek to destroy their way of life. After gathering a plucky band of like minded souls, Sanders ignored Connelly's whining, and trekked northward to a relatively undisturbed township called Old Olney. Sanders was amazed this place hadn't been settled by Raiders! His crew headed into the maze of sewers and tunnels under Old Olney, and began to set up a makeshift camp. It had everything you could wish for; Food, Beer, a pool table... and an odd scratching sound and distant roaring. This roaring intensified as Sanders suddenly—and violently—discovered his group wasn't the first to settle Old Olney."
