We didn't make it to the shelter in time. I guess we were some of the lucky ones. Most folks die instead of becoming ghouls. Must be something in both our genes.

Matt Peabody is a ghoul living in his house located near the ruins of Quincy in 2287.


Matt Peabody lived in Quincy before the Great War. He and his wife Carol became ghouls when they failed to make it in time to their shelter.[1] Amidst all the chaos, they lost sight of their son, Billy. Even after 200 years, they still have not been able to make contact with him.
