Ymir and his son Jotun are Paradise Falls's pair of knuckleheads. Jotun has difficulty forming basic sentences, while his father is a jovial madman, armed with a horrific-looking super sledge, like his son's. [Non-canon 1]
He seems to be very awkward and unsocial, responding vaguely and briefly to the Lone Wanderer and only responds to fellow slavers with grunts. His father has always been very proud of him and constantly praises him, bragging to the other slavers about him, which Jotun seems to find quite embarrassing.
Interactions with the player character
|This character drops a finger upon death (Lawbringer).|
- If his father, Ymir, is killed then Jotun will become frenzied, attacking anyone on sight, including his fellow slavers. As he is heavily outnumbered and usually only carries a super sledge, he typically dies almost immediately.
- Jotun seems to be one of the few slavers in Paradise Falls that goes to sleep in the slavers' barracks during his daily schedule, the others being Crimson and Clover in Eulogy's Pad.
- He is one of only nine named characters in the base game to have "Very Evil" Karma. The others are Ymir, Mr. Burke, Carolina Red, Jaime Palabras, Cutter, Eulogy Jones, Allistair Tenpenny and Ahzrukhal.
- If Jotun is shot with the Mesmetron, all of the slavers in Paradise Falls will become hostile towards him, including his father, and will gun him down. This appears to be unique within the slaver camp.
- "I keep my father safe. It is... a big job."
- "Yes. Jotun."
- "Ymir, let's be honest -- I'd sooner die than let you anywhere near my bunk. But feel free to send that boy of yours any time." – Carolina Red
Jotun appears only in Fallout 3.

Ymir and his son Jotun are Paradise Falls's pair of knuckleheads. Jotun has difficulty forming basic sentences, while his father is a jovial madman, armed with a horrific-looking Super Sledge, like his son's. Ymir isn't fond of Frank the bartender and makes this abundantly clear by bludgeoning Frank to death. He loves drinking, fighting, and drinking some more, rounding a day off with a spot of fighting."
