House-proud and vehemently opposed to outside influences, the Smiths are a strange but reasonably friendly bunch. Jack seems to be Andale's patriarch, and he knows the best little town in America is here, where Linda bakes a delicious meat pie!
Presenting himself as a loyal US citizen and father, Jack and his wife (and sister) Linda have a son Junior Smith. While his wife cooks and cleans the house, he goes to work with his neighbor (and brother) Bill Wilson in the "family business." In this enterprise, they preserve and maintain a centuries-long local tradition: cannibalism. Wastelanders passing through are allowed by the local families to stay in town and become accustomed to the warm attitude and reception of them. This facade is meant to catch the travelers off-guard when they are killed by the residents.
Jack reveals himself as a political conservative when chatting to the player character, stating that in elections held in Andale, he never votes for "those beatnik liberal commies," instead claiming that it is "every American's civic duty to cast his vote for his favorite Republican candidate."
