I'm an old guy, an' I don't get out too much. Ain't got much chance for action, y'know what I mean? ...

Typhon is an elderly ghoul[1] living in Broken Hills in Fallout 2.

Background[edit | edit source]

An elderly ghoul with exceedingly white skin, and intelligence fairly gleaming from his eyes.[1] Born before the Great War he suffered alongside his father Set[1]: former king of Necropolis. Unlike his father he grew up as a ghoul, never knowing any other way of existence.[2] As a result it helped him acclimate to his new condition, developing a good sense of humor.[3] Such as with his place of dwelling, the Old Ghoul's Home.[4]

After the fall of Necropolis Typhon gambled for a time, amassing a small fortune as a foot-racer. However, by 2241, he forgot that the change in currency made his bottle caps worthless.

    Typhon: "{155}{}{I'm Typhon. Y'ever hear of Set? He used to run the old-time town of Necropolis. I'm his son. Got born before the radiation hit us, so I grew up mutated. Ain't never been any other way for me.}"

    Typhon: "{163}{}{"Total bastard" would be a fine way to describe the old man. Being turned into a ghoul from the radiation didn't do much for his sense of humor or sense of authority, let me tell you. 'Course, it kinda screwed up everyone's brains. I think growing up ghoulie made it a little easier on me.}"
