Called "Stone" by his friends, Max is the biggest, strongest, and toughest guy in the Vault. Unfortunately, he's a little lacking in the brains department.Fallout Official Survival Guide p.13

Maxwell "Max" Stone (VID 208-197-88-125)[1] is an inhabitant of Vault 13 in 2161 and one of the three pre-made player characters available during character creation at the beginning of Fallout.


The description of Max in the character selection menu[1] and in the Vault Dweller's Survival Guide[Non-game 1] reads as follows:


"Stone" to his friends, Maxwell is the largest person currently living in Vault 13. He is known for his physical strength and stamina. He would make the ideal volunteer due to his tremendous size and strength. It is unfortunate that his intelligence was affected after birth when the labor bot dropped him on his head. He doesn't care that he might have to leave the vault.


  • Max is the only character playable in the Fallout Demo. While his biography is the same as in the retail version, his ST and EN are lowered by one, which results in some derived stats also being lowered. In addition, his Bruiser trait is replaced with Jinxed in the demo.
  • The Vault Dweller's Survival Guide uses Max as the character in the tutorial.[Non-game 2]


Max Stone appears in Fallout and the Fallout Demo.
