Hey, me and shortness go a long way back, so shut up!”— Shorty
Shorty is one of the residents of Big Town in Fallout 3.
Although diminutive, Shorty received his nick-name from the fellow residents of Big Town due to his fiery temper (Short-T.) The Lone Wanderer first came across Shorty in the basement kitchen of Germantown police HQ, where he was being held captive, soon to become a super mutant meal.
Interactions with the player character
|This character can be enslaved with the Mesmetron.|
|This character is a temporary party member.|
|This character is involved in quests.|
- Big Trouble in Big Town: As an optional objective, the Lone Wanderer has to save Shorty in addition to Red.
If Shorty is undiscovered during Big Trouble in Big Town and encountered after completing this quest, he will act as if you had saved him.
Drops on death
- Shorty's name is rather appropriate because he is probably one of the shortest non-child non-player characters in the game.
- Shorty is also one of the only people in Big Town who hasn't had a 'fling' with Bittercup. The only other exception is Dusty.
Shorty appears only in Fallout 3.

Although diminutive, Shorty received his nick-name from the fellow residents of Big Town due to his fiery temper: "Short-T." Currently, he's praying for a quick death in the basement kitchen of the Germantown Police Station."
