Vera, I know I'm not a sophisticated man, but I am a man, and I can take care of you.

Seagrave Holmes is a merchant in Rivet City in 2277.

Background[edit | edit source]

Seagrave Holmes was born in 2247. Now aged 30, he is a genius tinkerer and fixes anything he can get his hands on. He spends his days in his shop, and at night, he hangs around the Weatherly Hotel to talk to Vera Weatherly, who he is not-so-secretly in love with. Seagrave has that easy way of relating to the common folk. He fits into their social world without even thinking about it. While he is exceptionally gifted with machines, he never lords that over others.[1]

He runs a general store in the marketplace called "Rivet City Supply." According to Doctor Preston's terminal, Holmes suffers from a chronic case of red-lung from all his repairs below-decks.

Relationships[edit | edit source]

He is the grandson of the founding Rivet City Council member Annette Holmes.

Daily schedule[edit | edit source]

  • Seagrave is generally to be found in his shop or (often on the flight deck), trying and failing to woo Vera Weatherly. He can also be found leaving his room, (mid-deck next to marketplace entry) around 2-4 AM. The Lone Wanderer can overhear that she does not want to be with him as he reeks of sewage.
  • Seagrave is re-stocked on Monday and Thursday.

Quests[edit | edit source]

  • The Replicated Man: Seagrave is in possession of a Replicated Man holotape.
  • The Wasteland Survival Guide: While working on the Wasteland Guide quest, he is one of the persons to talk to in finding out the history of Rivet City. If one asks Vera Weatherly about Rivet City's history she will direct them to talk to Seagrave. When speaking to Seagrave, his speech makes it obvious that he has a crush on Vera.
  • Council Seat: Bannon mentions that his council seat is being contested by Seagrave. He wants you to look for incriminating evidence against his opponent.

Other interactions[edit | edit source]

  • Reporting Bannon to Danvers for trying to blackmail him will cause Seagrave to provide a "true, blue friendship discount" at his store.
  • Reporting him to Danvers will cause Seagrave to dislike the Lone Wanderer. He will still trade but will charge more.

Inventory[edit | edit source]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • If one asks for a recommended place to get a drink he'll recommend the Weatherly Hotel, unlike most other characters who recommend the Muddy Rudder.
  • He claims to have everything in the wasteland, but the player character can mock him by mentioning the T-51b power armor and asking Seagrave if he has a set.

Notable quotes[edit | edit source]

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Seagrave Holmes appears only in Fallout 3.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • PCIcon pc.png Playstation 3Icon ps3.png Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png If you sided with Bannon during Council Seat, then his dialogue changes. His quote before his trade interface is "After what you did? Only because I have to." His lips do not move during 'After what you did,' but they do for 'Only because I have to.' [verified]
  • PCIcon pc.png Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png Seagrave can disappear from the ship, with no trace of where he has gone. [verified]
    • Due to this bug both Seagrave and Vera Weatherly can end up inside an inaccessible building near a makeshift super mutant camp north of Project Purity, engaging in endless looped conversation. Teleporting them back to the ship using console commands on PC seems to fix their behavior.
