|The following is based on the Fallout Bible.|
President Richardson was the father of Dick Richardson and his predecessor as the President of the Enclave, and by extension the United States of America. His tutelage, as well as political pressure helped jumpstart his son's political career and would eventually progress into him being elected as the new president. He also gave the presidential order to begin work on an upgraded version of power armor.
Richardson Senior is mentioned only in the Fallout Bible.
