The Fallout 1 and 2 characters project is a project dedicated to add missing, organizing and improving the quality of the Fallout and Fallout 2 character articles.


  • Creation of missing Fallout and Fallout 2 character pages
  • Expansion of character stubs
  • Adding character images


Adapt all pages to the standard layout and check character image, infobox and categories.


Section headline required? Content
Yes Infobox and games template.
Yes Short summary that usually looks something like this:

"{{PAGENAME}} is one of the inhabitants of Klamath in 2241."

In general, it should contain:

  • Name of the character (and alternative names) in bold.
  • short description of the character (inhabitant of town XY, member of organization YZ etc.)
  • Time when the character lived/is encountered in one of the Fallout games, (i.e. the starting date of the character's respective game). For characters in FO1 this is 2161 and for FO2 it is 2241.
Background Yes If there is any background story/history for the character; "who the character is".
Relationships No Relations to other characters (family, friends, partners, enemies etc.) if any
Daily schedule No Daily occupation and activities of the character, i.e. what they/it usually does during the day. This section is only needed if the NPC wanders around during the day.
Interactions with the player character Yes Interaction of this NPC with the player. This includes interactions as part of a quest and effects of player actions on the character or on the player's interaction with the character and the interactions table.
Tell me about No Only for characters that are talking heads or characters that can be asked about unique, special, or non-generic words/phrases Note: Should be a sub-category of interactions
Inventory Yes Items in possession of the character.
Notes No For interesting things about the character which do not fit into the other categories. Try to keep this section to a minimum.
Notable quotes No For notable quotes that the character uses. General ones that all NPCs say (such as ones used in combat) should not go here.
Appearances Yes Which games/add-ons does this character appear in.
Behind the scenes No For out-of-game references and similar stuff.
Bugs No For bugs which are unique to this character. General game bugs and bugs which are related to other things should not be in the character article (they should be in the general bugs or character/quest pages instead).
Gallery No Cluttering the article with too many images should be avoided. Instead, place them in a gallery at the end if applicable.
Navboxes Yes Navboxes go at the end of the article.


  • The character image can either be a generic sprite or a screenshot of the character in his or her default surroundings - the latter is preferred.
    • A sprite image for any human character should be 30px in dimensions, Super Mutant character sprites should be 34px in dimensions. Background images do not apply.


All character infoboxes should at least contain the following fields:

{{Infobox character
|name        ={{PAGENAME}}
|games       =FO1
|image       =
|race        =
|affiliation =
|role        =
|location    =
|quests      =
|appearances =''[[Fallout 1]]''
|dialogue    =


{{Infobox character
|name        ={{PAGENAME}}
|games       =FO2
|image       =
|race        =
|affiliation =
|role        =
|location    =
|quests      =
|appearances =''[[Fallout 2]]''
|dialogue    =
  • For optional fields which may be applicable in certain cases, please see the {{Infobox character}} template documentation.
  • Affiliation: Of the following points, mention the first point that is applicable for a given character:
    • Name of an organization the character belongs to.
    • Name of a shop/company the character owns/works for.
    • Name of the character's boss.
    • Town a character lives in.
    • none.
  • Quests: Set to "none" if no related quests.


A character page should be in the following categories:

General checklist

This is a list of things people should look out for when improving the NPC articles:

  • Headlines: The character articles should follow the layout descirbed above. This includes naming (including capitalization) and order of the headlines/sections.
  • Notes: The Notes sections should be kept to a minimum. Items placed here should be merged with other sections where applicable. It should also be checked whether there's a more suitable article for a given note - for example, notes relating to quests should be in the quest article, not in the character one.
  • Navboxes: Check for missing navboxes and add them where applicable. This mostly concerns characters who live in a town (these should have the town-specific navbox added, e.g. {{Navbox New Reno}}).
  • Bugs: Reduce to bugs which are specific to that character. No general game bugs which may happen to any character, no bugs which relate to quests or locations.
  • Behind the scenes: Reduce to obvious references.
  • Tense: Many articles use past tense. Change it to present tense instead (but remember to give the year/date in the intro).


Project leaders are the people to ask about concerns with the project itself.

To participate, simply add your name below using {{userlink|your user name}}. Place every participant on a new line. The list is alphabetized (with the exception of project leaders).



  • Add your name to the tasks you are currently working on (simply insert {{repeat}} ~~~, this adds your signature without date)
  • Mark tasks you have completed with {{yes}} ~~~
  • Once all other tasks have been completed, someone else should review the result. This is done to ensure nothing has been overlooked. If that has been done, add {{yes}} ~~~~ to the "peer review" and "complete" columns.
  • The project officially ened on March 17th, 2012.
