The door was shutting as the bombs fell. We both must have taken a lot of radiation.— Carol Peabody, explaining her appearance

Carol Peabody is a ghoul living in her house located near the ruins of Quincy, in 2287.


Carol Peabody lived in Quincy before the Great War. She and her husband became ghouls when they failed to make it in time to their shelter.[1] Amidst all the chaos, they lost sight of their son Billy. Even after 200 years, they still haven't been able to make contact with him.

  1. The Sole Survivor: "So how did you end up as ghouls?"
    Matt Peabody: "We didn't make it to the shelter in time."
    Carol Peabody: "The door was shutting as the bombs fell. We both must have taken a lot of radiation."
    Matt Peabody: "I guess we were some of the lucky ones. Most folks die instead of becoming ghouls. Must be something in both our genes."
    Billy Peabody: "So that's why you guys look like me."
    Matt Peabody: "Yes, Billy that's why. Although it's really more why you look like us."
    The Sole Survivor: "He's a good kid."
    Carol Peabody: "We wandered for a while, but eventually came back here. We've been living here ever since. Not really anywhere else to go."
    Matt Peabody: "Let me thank you. Take this."
