Dukov and his girls
Eating, drinking, farting, and screwing!”— Dukov explaining his daily schedule.
Born in 2234, Dukov is one of the three surviving mercenaries hired by Allistair Tenpenny for an expedition into Fort Constantine. He is now retired, and lives in his estate (Dukov's Place) along the east bank of the Potomac in the D.C ruins.
Dukov's Russian accent could be a good pointer that there is an active populace in Russia.

- "Who the hell are you? Nevermind. You need a drink. Cherry! I'm thirsty over here!"
- "Oh, baby! Let me get you something special. How about a Dukov surprise? Hah ha! Nevermind. You need a drink. Cherry! Need some fucking booze over here!"
- "Don't let the door hit you on the ass, clown shoes. Hah ha!"
- "Feral ghouls ripped his nuts off and ate them for dinner."
- "Good, I'm tired of flapping jaw with you, I think I'll go flap my nuts against Cherry's ass instead!"
- "What! Fuck me sideways, no, better yet, fuck him! I swear I'll jam a grenade so far up his ass..."
Behind the scenes
Some time before release, Dukov had the alternative name of "Vando".
- Even though Dukov always talks about drinks - and that you should serve yourself - if you steal more than two bottles he will become hostile and attack you. The girls will be marked hostile as well but will just continue to flee. The liquor cabinet he refers to, which contains the only drinks you can take without him becoming hostile, is on the second floor, in the room to the left opposite his bed.
Dukov appears only in Fallout 3.
- Implied with his heavy accent and name.
- Fallout 3 Official Game Guide Game of the Year Edition p.70: "Dukov
Dukov, 43, has a carefree attitude about life, and it defines what he does every day: party. His talk is laced with profanity, yet he somehow maintains his charm and is able to win people over. His booming laugh can distinguish him in a room full of people. All he's concerned with are his possessions, his "pad" as he calls it, and his ladies."
