| ||For other characters in the Fallout universe named Jo, see Jo.|
An average person of average height and average complexion. Nothing out of the ordinary. Jo is the epitome of average.
Interactions with the player characterEdit
|This character is a merchant.||Sells: general supplies|
|This character starts quests.|
- Something strange is happening at the farm northeast of Modoc. Investigate and report back to Jo: Jo is suspicious that something is happening on the farm. He wants to know what it is.
- Jo is suspicious of the Slags. Find out about the dead bodies at the Ghost Farm and find out what happened to Karl: After the Chosen One delivers the Slags message, Jo will ask them to prove that the Slags aren't dangerous.
Effects of player's actionsEdit
- When the Chosen One is talking to Jo to receive the "investigate the ghost farm" quest, they can ask him to cut off his right pinky finger. Should he go ahead bad Karma along with the the mutilated finger will be received, it is also possible to stop Jo by realizing he is serious about the situation, allowing the poor man to keep his appendage. If told to "saute the finger in a butter sauce", after he cuts it off however, he will pull out a shotgun on the Chosen in response to the bad joke.
This option is only available with positive Karma, and only still if you don't have too much of it. 346 Karma suffice, which you can have if you did every quest until now and helped Tyler against Lara. But if you helped Lara (ca. 360 Karma), Jo outright rejects cutting off his finger, saying he's desperate, but not dumb.
- If Jo dies, Bo takes his place as Justice of the Peace.
Jo appears only in Fallout 2.
Behind the scenesEdit
