Ethyl is one of two glowing ones, the other one being Meat, in the Chop Shop's containment area in Underworld in 2277.


When he is not operating on ghouls with a variety of odd ailments, Dr. Barrows is closely studying a small collection of patients who have succumbed to the massive amounts of radiation, turned feral, and become glowing one subjects, such as Ethyl. Ethyl is housed in an inaccessible containment chamber adjacent to his Chop Shop surgery.[1]
