Wiseman is a male ghoul residing in the Commonwealth in 2287. He is a former resident of Diamond City, founder and leader of the Slog.

Background

A soft-spoken and friendly man, the Sole Survivor can speak to him about his past and the community he founded upon first discovering the Slog. Wiseman fled from Diamond City following a decree by Mayor McDonough exiling all ghouls from the community. Instead of traveling to Goodneighbor along with the majority of the ghoul population, he instead founded "the Slog" within an old public swimming pool. Intending the establishment to be a safe haven for persecuted ghouls, it eventually grew into a tarberry farm - one of the sole producers of the fruit in the Commonwealth.[1][2]

The settlement gained the name "the Slog" when a trader decided to take refuge there following a long trip. When talking about the trek with Wiseman, the trader described the entire journey there through the mud as a "slog," and following the eventual departure of the traveler, Wiseman decided to use the name for his settlement.[3]

  1. The Sole Survivor: "Why did the mayor throw you out?"
    Wiseman: "We're ugly, we turn feral and kill people, we gives the kids nightmares, all the usual stuff we get from you smoothskins. Now it's true that there was one incident in Diamond City where a ghoul turned feral and someone got hurt. But I ask you this - how many humans have suddenly turned violent and killed someone? I've seen it more times than I care to admit. What if this place could be more than just a refuge for ghouls who aren't welcome elsewhere? What if it could also be an example of what we can do when we put our minds to something and work together? We want this to be a place that everyone looks forward to visiting, with smiling faces, good bargains and great produce. Maybe we can make people take a second look, you know? Maybe then they'd see that we're not monsters."
    (Wiseman's dialogue)
  2. The Sole Survivor: "It's a wonder you don't scare off all the traders."
    Wiseman: "Oh, there's a few that won't come around. They believe all that nonsense coming out of Diamond City, I guess. Truth be told, we ghouls get a pretty bad rap in these parts. I don't think it has to be that way, though. What if this place could be more than just a refuge for ghouls who aren't welcome elsewhere?

  3. The Sole Survivor: "The Slog? How'd you come up with that name?"
    Wiseman: "We didn't. It was the caravan traders who started that. I started this place a few years back but couldn't think of a name for it. Then, one day, one of the traders pulls up after it's been raining for hours, and says he's never had to slog through so much mud in his life. I asked him if it was worth it, and he said for the best tarberries in the Commonwealth, it was definitely worth it. Working' here's like a slog through the mud. It's tough going and you'll get dirty doing it, but at the end of the day, it's worth it. You've probably noticed it's only ghouls around here. I used to live in Diamond City, until that rat bastard mayor threw me and all the other ghouls out. I decided that we ghouls should have a place where we could feel welcome, and that's mainly why I started up this farm."
    (Wiseman's dialogue)
