Canon 'Gender'[edit source]

In Fallout canon what is the lone wander's gender?

Unknown, likely male. Seeing as Black Isle had the Vault Dweller as canon male. Nitty Tok. 19:25, February 14, 2010 (UTC)
No canonical gender. At this point, still left completely open.--Gothemasticator 07:08, February 15, 2010 (UTC)

I'd say male cause of the pic on the back of the game case

Just because the picture has the lone wanderer as male doesn't mean he actually he is, Betheseda hasn't announced the "Cannon" gender of the lone wanderer yet and until they do this is a mute subject. ---bleep196- 21:20, November 6, 2010 (UTC)

Probably Male , My reasons of thinking this is because , first of all he was Male in one of the trailers , second of all he is male on the back of the game case , third of all the first gender option the game has it set on is Male . though i am not at all sure , i just thik that he probably male . 20:33, August 25, 2011 (UTC)

look you, the gender along with choices have no canon, its up to the player and rightly so, otherwise it will be just another good-game-turned-crap game with fixed paths and ending with fake choices such kotor or fable. The reason why there is a male character in trailers and the back of the case is because...what else are they going to use? a blank piece of paper? a 4 multi-racial half-transsexual that is both good and evil? No! its called advertisement. they had to use something, and so they used a pre-created character for screen shots etc. there is no canon in the fallout universe besides the main storyline and characters of the game, choices, gender, age and morality are completely up to the player. end of story same goes for new vegas. why can't people just enjoy the game and its choices without trying to label something canon and ruin it the rest of us, we like the choices, we like the ambiguity of the endings and past and we want it to stay that way. to have something fixed makes having choices absolutely worthless and pointless.

Birthdate[edit source]

Where do you guys get July 13th? I've read the entire intro to the offical guide (talk about a life lol) and it has nothing about his birthdate and only the year can be calculated. So please tell me how you got July 13, I really want to know some more infromation. (unsigned)

if you look at your pipboy while at your 10th birthday it will say July 13 2268 so if u take 10 years away it becomes July 13 2258 which is the lone wanderers birth date Chiefsean16 10:23, April 2, 2010 (UTC)

Do Growing Up Fast again and look at what day and month it is on your pip boy. User:Riond55

Did he just answer his own question?--Canadian Reject 05:27, July 31, 2011 (UTC)

Actually, I think I accidently joined my response to the question which was signed by an unknown user, lol. I'll fix that. Chief Talk to meh. 18:18, August 18, 2011 (UTC)

Remind me to buy the lone Wanderer, a Grognak the Barbarian Comic book!

Happy Birthday[edit source]

Happy birthday the Lone Wanderer! xD Chiefsean16 09:55, July 13, 2010 (UTC)

Happy 22nd Birthday!!! User:Riond55 24:46, July 13, 2010

My God, he's already 22?!? They grow up so fast! <:OBlahmarrow 23:07, August 13, 2010 (UTC)

Happy -249th birthday! (a bit late tough)

Factions question[edit source]

If your the Instrument of Annihilation, do the Enclave still attack you onsight? —Preceding comment was unsigned. Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

Yes, because the Enclave is under the control of Colonel Autumn but it's President Eden who wants the purifier sabotaged; Colonel Autumn doesn't want it sabotaged, because he knows that too many people will die from it. --Kris mailbox 19:06, August 28, 2010 (UTC)

Chosen One[edit source]

Is it me or does the Lone Wanderer's accomplishments sound like the Chosen One? They are both sent to find a geck, they do, and they both stop the enclave from killing super mutants and humans. --Drldrl 12:44, October 25, 2010 (UTC)


PLEASE, people stop being retarded, the devs said that NV had no conection watsoever with FO3 so why do you keep saying he's the lonesome drifter, he is ulysses IT'S NOT POSSIBLE, he lives in THE OTHER SIDE OF THE COUNTRY, for god's sake.

Morons[edit source]

Some added a fan made pic of the lone wandner thats quite famous on devianirt. For gods sake, we don't include fan art on real wiki pages, save those for your own page. Someone delete that pic

This issue with Lone Wanderer's Forgotten childhood.[edit source]

I still don't understand why people (or just one person, I haven't really checked thoughly but it looks like some admins are also editing it), keep reverting the edits on the subject of the note:

  • Much of the Lone Wanderer's childhood was forgotten when part of his or her brain was removed by Tobar in Point Lookout, leaving vast portions of the Lone Wanderer's life as a jumble of voices and white light.

As far as my knowlage, this is never stated anywhere to be true, and confirmed by cannon, leading me to believe its 100% speculation. It would be more appropriate if it were:

  • It is possile that much of the Lone Wanderer's childhood was forgotten when part of his or her brain was removed by Tobar in Point Lookout, leaving vast portions of the Lone Wanderer's life as a jumble of voices and white light.

Maybe theres some solid evidence out there (like an offical magazine article or something) which I'm not aware of. If this is the case (as unlikley as it is) I think a reference would also be nice. Chaos ian7 23:56, February 8, 2011 (UTC)

The source is Nadine's dialogue. --Flower of Pock-Lips 00:49, February 9, 2011 (UTC)

I've played through Point Lookout a few times and I get the idea where the wanderer's brain was damaged and that he 'forgets his childhood' (hintingly describing the the gameplay device used to fast-forward through time early in the game). I think its stupid to say though that this must be a fact, even if its hinted at by one line of dialogue and a name. If so we should add a note about the Wanderer also seeing text of 'eight years later' when he tries to remember, and the fact that everything uptill Point Lookout would be past-tense gameplay (with no clear transition to present-tense), even if the player doesn't have it installed. Chaos ian7 03:14, February 9, 2011 (UTC)

Maybe the "forgotten childhood" is the result of who the hell would want to play a game where for 18 straight years you just perform mundane everyday activities in a subterranean labyrinth? FinalWish 22:05, March 5, 2011 (UTC)

There isn't any proof of this, and if it was real, why would he want to remember his boring childhood life anyway? - Sparkybigp 00:44, October 22, 2011 (UTC)

Quote[edit source]

Can there be a quotes section? Tezzla CannonUser Tezzla Dog.jpg 14:54, February 20, 2011 (UTC)

I don't think so. Has the Lone Wandere evever said anything?-- 01:01, July 26, 2011 (UTC)

The dialogue options should count. TJMW, 22:07, July 26, 2011

Canon[edit source]

Is the destruction of the Enclave Crawler canon?--Canadian Reject 05:24, July 31, 2011 (UTC)

We don't know yet since Bethesda still have to say what's canon and not. Hope so anyway, I like playing as a good Lone Wanderer. Chief Talk to meh. 18:24, August 18, 2011 (UTC)

oh so its ok to ruin everyone's gameplay by saying whats canon and whats not?! how about never!! i like playing as evil but i would never want it canon because i value choice! and thats what fallout is about. yes the "core" storyline is canon but the choices and morality should be left alone as it gives everyone their own unique gameplay and path. if its made canon then choices will have no weight and be worthless. 20:38, August 25, 2011 (UTC)

Who Removed the Faction Section?[edit source]

Why did somebody remove the faction section. I found it to be both informative and usefull. Charlie1121 22:18, August 9, 2011 (UTC)

So did I! Who removed it?! I hardly noticed it was gone. Chief Talk to meh. 18:21, August 18, 2011 (UTC) 18:27, September 17, 2011 (UTC)Lone Wanderer's signature weapon110.138.7.105 18:27, September 17, 2011 (UTC) is it hunting rifle ?because on the trailer and wallpaper,he used it

Handedness[edit source]

Is the Lone Wanderer right handed?

-- 18:45, October 10, 2011 (UTC)

Hello! -- 06:05, October 11, 2011 (UTC)

Right handed probably. -- 10:25, October 15, 2011 (UTC)

The Wasteland Survival Guide[edit source]

Would "The Wasteland Survival Guide" quest be considered canon because of the book's apperance in Fallout New Vegas? --Ryanwa24 08:28, October 22, 2011 (UTC)Ryanwa24

Courier Or Lone Wanderer? Who's more Pro.....[edit source]

I believe that....

          Look, I don't know there both badass, that their good ass>>>
