That guy over there on the mattress died last night. I never did get his name. If you don't mind the smell, you can just take his.

Prosper is a slave located in the Capital Wasteland at the train tunnel in 2277.


Before his capture by slavers, Prosper was a smuggler who transported several illicit cargos of steel ingots from The Pitt to other outlying areas. Despite his paranoia, nervousness, and carefulness, Prosper’s operation was compromised at some point prior to 2277. The majority of his crew were killed, while the others, including him, were sold to slavers traveling to Paradise Falls.[1]

  • Into The Pitt: The Lone Wanderer can buy him and the other slaves in the slave pen from Ramsey or kill all of the slavers to get the key to open the pen. After either option, one can either threaten Prosper into giving them his slave outfit or get the slave outfit from the dead slave in the corner.

  • If he is followed, he and the two other slaves will try to head to the entrance of Vault 101. They will likely be killed if not escorted. Although, they can survive the journey, at which point, they will "live" at the entrance of Vault 101. After some time though, he will disappear from the game.
  • He will not equip any weapons or clothes given to him via reverse-pickpocketing, meaning his chances of survival cannot be improved whatsoever.

Notable quotes


Prosper appears only in the Fallout 3 add-on The Pitt.

Behind the scenes

If the Lone Wanderer asks Prosper for the clothes off his own back, the dialogue option reads, "I need your clothes. Give them to me. Now." This is a reference to a recurring line in The Terminator movie series.[2]
