Ooh-ee! Yeah, dig that sweet music! Damn, it's good to be back on-line!

Blind Diode Jefferson is an automated personality in the Big MT in 2281.

Background[edit | edit source]

Blind Diode Jefferson was forced offline when Dr. Mobius abandoned The Think Tank and left for the Forbidden Zone. Once his personality backup is retrieved from house #108, he speaks with a slow drawl, similar in style to a stereotypical Deep South Blues musician. When left alone, he may continue to ramble, spouting mostly-useless advice and anecdotes of by-gone times. When asked if he can play music, he says that he used to before Dr. Mobius took out his music drives - hence exacerbating his feeling of 'the blues'. Mobius used him to change the frequency of sonic emitters.

Effects of player's actions[edit | edit source]

  • If Blind Diode Jefferson is fully upgraded when Old World Blues is completed, the ending slide show mentions that Jefferson saves the Big MT from "Sonic Invasion" sometime in 2910.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • If the Courier asks Blind Diode Jefferson to modify a sonic emitter to the same function as is already in the Courier's inventory, it will be returned to you at near full repair.
  • As mentioned above, the slide show mentions that Jefferson saves The Big Empty from "sonic invasion" sometime in 2910 - whether or not this is a throw-away gag (let alone official canon), is yet to be seen.
  • When Old World Blues is completed, Blind Diode Jefferson says the Courier will be 'hitting that old lonesome road', alluding to the add-on Lonesome Road.
  • His animations (Music note animation and the bubbles) will stop when you talk to him.
  • When Old World Blues is completed, he has a brief affair with the light switches. However, this is short lived, as he forgets their names "once too often" and was left in the dark.

Notable quotes[edit | edit source]

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Blind Diode Jefferson appears only in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Old World Blues.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

This character is strikingly similar to the famous Texas Blues artist Blind Lemon Jefferson, with a diode simply being a component of a jukebox, just like a lemon (bitterness) could be seen to be a component of the blues.
