— Shorty

Shorty is one of the residents of Big Town in Fallout 3.

Background[edit | edit source]

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.[1]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • 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.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Shorty appears only in Fallout 3.
