Gametitle-VB.pngThe following is based on information from Van Buren design documents and is not canon.
I haven't seen you around before. I'm Anson, and this is my Rule: start any trouble in here, and I'll kill you. Now, what'll you have?

Anson is a citizen of Jericho who owns a bar, deals drugs and acts as a pimp in the year 2253.


Anson heads the local brothel and is quite the misogynist, but he does not overtly show his hatred. He is usually very calm and emotionless, as is typical in this well-ordered town, and runs a tight ship with his combo tavern/brothel.[1]

Find out who's been stealing from Anson: Anson has suffered a series of burglaries lately, and wants to know who's responsible. He'll hire the Prisoner to watch over his bar at night or "investigate" other people's belongings to find the culprit.[2]

Effects of the player's actions

If the Prisoner fails in convincing Anson that "some guy with a beard" has been stealing from him instead of Marianne, Anson will ban him from his bar and become hostile if the Prisoner re-enters, unless the Prisoner already provoked him after he saw through the lie.[3]


Anson was to appear only in Van Buren, the canceled Fallout 3 by Black Isle Studios.
