Ernest Roe appears only in Fallout 3.


  • If you are a female player and meet Ernest Roe in Canterbury Commons and ask to help out with the AntAgonizer and Mechanist problem, which would start The Superhuman Gambit, but tell him you want to wait, it appears as he refers to you as a man even though you are playing as a woman.
    • His exact response is "[…] You're a man who puts his own business before that of others. […]" It's the only response, without a gender check. In this case "man" should be interpreted as "guy" or "human being".
  • Sometimes the marker that leads you to him might lead you out of the map (ex: north past Rebuplic of Dave), thus making it impossible to finish the quest.


  1. Fallout 3 Official Game Guide Game of the Year Edition p.71-72: "Ernest "Uncle" Roe
    Ernest Roe is 39 and was raised on a trade caravan. By the time he was 12, he could turn 5 Caps into 50 with just a few cleaver trades. When he was 20, he set out to make his mark, using his sizable investments to found the trading post of Canterbury Commons with his sister Daisy. Nowadays, the Commons have become a regular stop for caravans in the Capital Wasteland. "Uncle Roe" makes sure that everyone gets enough from the caravans to eat a good meal every night. He's lost his sister, but he cares for his nephew as well as he can. With a bit of luck and a whole lot of Caps, he hopes to eventually turn Canterbury Commons into a settlement to rival Rivet City."

  2. Fallout 3 Official Game Guide Game of the Year Edition p.68: "Derek Pacion
    Derek is small for a 15-year-old and was raised in Canterbury Commons by Louis Pacion and Daisy Roe, a pair of Traders who met and settled down. But when they were killed in separate Raider attacks on their caravans (six years ago for Daisy and three years ago for Louis), Derek was left to his "Uncle Roe," the town keeper. Since then, Derek's been a quiet and morose child. He works around town as a general assistant, but he doesn't really say much unless it's necessary. He harbors a secret crush on Machete but doesn't have the courage to approach her. He devotes much of his free time to reading Hubris Comics."
