Look, my dad used to always say "You can do whatever you want in life but the family comes first".

— Fred Wilks, to his son Bryan.

Fred Wilks is the father of Bryan Wilks, found dead in his home in Fallout 3.


Wilks was a single father to Bryan. He instilled in his son a deep respect for family, telling him "You can do whatever you want in life, but family comes first."

Fred died in his home in Grayditch, defending it from a fire ant attack. He was apparently separated from Bryan before this event, as when the player finds Bryan, they are tasked with finding Fred.[1]
