What do you want?! Will you assholes never learn? I'm tired of using my talents on losers. Shoot straight next time! Don't let them shoot you.

Dr. Wu is the designated doctor of the Cathedral in Fallout.


Ah, Wu. If there ever was a ranking of pleasant wastelanders, Wu would climb to the top. Not. His excessive use of profanity and insults towards everyone who comes across him, especially those who would like to use his services, makes him one of the more interesting encounters in the Cathedral. He allegedly supplies drugs to the nightkin and definitely mocks those who scream whenever he goes to work.

Notable quotes

  • "Nightkin prefer to do that. I give them chems sometimes. Nobody pays attention to Doctor Wu. They're all assholes! Now, you wanna get fixed up?"

Behind the scenes

Well, there's Dr. Wu, the incredibly over-the-top and obscene doctor at the Cathedral. I had always self-censored myself in my writing before Fallout, but the post holocaust setting struck me as a milleu which *required* high levels of obscenity for its grittiness and dark humor, so I went for the "R" rating with gusto, and I made Wu as the embodiment of all that's obscene. Medics tend to be the one character that even dedicated killer PCs don't kill, so I wanted to see how many people would forego the healing and shoot Wu just because he's such a bastard.

Tim Cain *hated* Wu; he thought Wu went too far ("does this guy have Turrette's?") and he asked me to tone him down. I did and handed the revision off to Leonard. However somewhere in the process that Wu revision fell through the cracks, because the one that's in the game is the original unpurigated, unfettered Wu.
