Gehennas are monsters found in Burham Springs.


They are slightly larger than humans and appear to be made of black tar and shiny oil. They are vaguely human-shaped, but their features are hard to analyze through the flames that constantly sputter across their bodies. Their eyes are bulbous glowing orange spheres that seem stuck into their ovoid heads. Gehennas are dangerous both for their fiery melee attacks and the toxic fumes they breathe onto enemies. When they die, they collapse into a disgusting pile of smoking black goo. Gehennas are fairly mindless monsters, usually attacking anyone they see who moves too quickly. They have very poor senses, and can sometimes overlook creatures that stand still. They are related to the even more dangerous molechs.


Gehennas were to appear only in Van Buren, the canceled Fallout 3 by Black Isle Studios.

Behind the scenes[]

They are a reference to the valley of Gehenna, in which, according to the Hebrew Bible, some kings of Judah sacrificed their children to fire.[Non-game 1]
