This character is involved in random encounters.

Escaped Synth

Other interactions

  • If the Sole Survivor speaks to him, he will ask for the location of Bunker Hill. The Sole Survivor has various dialogue options depending on whether Bunker Hill has been visited.
    • If Bunker Hill has been visited, one has the option to ask for caps, to provide directions or withhold them. Alternatively, he can be questioned as to why he is going there.
    • If Bunker Hill has not been visited, the option to provide directions is replaced with "sorry" and provides different dialogue. Functionally, this works the same as saying "no."
  • Timothy will wander the wasteland aimlessly if he is not provided directions. If he is, he will slowly walk towards Bunker Hill. He can be encountered several times and will still be asking for directions, even if he has been given directions and is just outside Bunker Hill.
