May Saint Monica bless you.

Father Clifford is the reverend of the Saint Monica's Church in Rivet City in the year 2277.

Background

Father Clifford was born in 2237. At the age of 40,[1] he spends most of his days in the church, but leaves for a couple hours every day to walk around the carrier. He's a nice guy and likes just about everyone he meets. He is especially fond of telling the story of Saint Monica, who went on a journey to be with her son and saved his soul. He counsels Mister Lopez during his frequent visits to the church. He's mildly envious of Doctor Preston; it doesn't help that Doctor Preston never attends church.[2]

Before 2277, Clifford came across Marcella, a Christian missionary from the Abbey of the Road. She was delighted to find another person in the wasteland as passionate about religion as she was. Clifford acts as a teacher and somewhat father to his acolyte, Diego, who will most likely become a priest when Clifford is deceased.

Relationships

Father Clifford has an acolyte, Diego, who he has taken care of since Diego was abandoned by his father. The bond they have is akin to father and son. He also frequently counsels Lopez, who is suicidal and will offer support and comfort during their interactions around Rivet City.

Daily schedule

Father Clifford is normally seen in and around Saint Monica's Church but is known to roam around the inside of Rivet City talking to other residents. On occasion Father Clifford can be found in The Muddy Rudder, lecturing anyone present on the dangers of sin in the bar.

Every Sunday Father Clifford holds a mass, for which most of Rivet City's named non-player characters show up.

Notes

  • There is a whiskey bottle and a syringe of Med-X in his podium in the church.
  • During the Point Lookout add-on, the Lone Wanderer finds out that Marcella, a Christian missionary, made contact with Father Clifford in her travels.
  • Clifford appears to be much older than the age of 40 from the guide, more near the age of 60 going by the wrinkles. This may be an oversight from the guide's author.

Appearances

Father Clifford appears only in Fallout 3 and is mentioned in Point Lookout.
