Geri appears only in the Fallout 3 add-on Point Lookout.

Behind the scenes

  • The names of the hounds are a reference to Norse mythology. Odin was often portrayed as having two wolf companions named Freki and Geri. Freki roughly translates to "ravenous", Geri to "greedy".

  • At some point during development it was intended that Desmond would offer Geri to you as a companion, similar to Dogmeat. It is unclear how far this idea progressed during development, but certain resources still exist in the DLC to go with this intended feature. In particular, certain script variables still refer to this option (such as the variable "DogFriend") and Geri is set to use some (but not all) of Dogmeat's dialog options pertaining to "adopting" him, as well as an AI package titled DLC04DesmondDogPlayerPackage, though the package is only set to ensure Geri stays in the mansion.

  1. Fallout 3 Official Game Guide Game of the Year Edition p.74: "Geri
    One of Desmond the Ghoul's Dog guards Geri was found lame and abused by his Raider masters. The situation was soon rectified after Desmond tracked the Raiders down, trussed them up, and fed them alive to Mole Rats. Geri has been with him for years and has battled (like Freki) with loyalty and obedience, traits Desmond demands."
