| ||For other characters that appear in the Fallout series named Ed, see Ed.|
Ed is a deceased human found initially outside of Vault 13. Little, if anything is known about his past prior to this. From his apparel though, it is visible that he too was a resident of Vault 13.
Interactions with the player characterEdit
|This character has no special interactions.|
- Ed's purpose is twofold: to immediately show that the outside world is dangerous, and to tell the Vault Dweller that they weren't the first person to leave the vault.
Mariposa Military BaseEdit
- In Fallout, Ed's corpse appears outside of Vault 13. However, it also appears in a cell in the Mariposa Military Base, adjacent to Sarah and her mutant lover, Flip.
- In Fallout 2, he appears in San Francisco in the lower parts of the tanker. Ed can also be seen in the Den West Side buried under debris next to the Brotherhood outpost, and in Redding under a pile of rocks near the working elevator that leads to the Great wanamingo mine's tunnels.
- He is also referenced in Fallout: New Vegas outside Vault 34.
Behind the scenesEdit
A quote about Ed by Fallout lead designer Chris Taylor: "What's the deal with Ed? Ed's dead, baby, Ed's dead." This references a line from the Quentin Tarantino film Pulp Fiction, spoken by Bruce Willis' character, Butch, differing by a single letter (Zed's Dead).
