The Dad is a man living in Chicago.[1]


He is the father of Tommy who both kept care of ED-E for a short period of time during the eyebot's trip to Navarro. The Dad was wary of taking in the eyebot in at first, worrying someone would coming looking for it. After giving in to his son's pleas that it could help his wife around the garage, he added that if it broke anything the damages would come out of Tommy's allowance.[2] It is implied that they applied the Illinois license plate to ED-E.[1]


The Dad is mentioned only in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Lonesome Road.


  1. 1.0 1.1 The Courier: "Sounds like that kid was pretty fond of you. Why did you leave?"
    ED-E: <Wistful beeping>
    The Courier: "Where did this happen?"
    ED-E: <Happy beeping>
    The Courier: "Illinois? So that's where you got that plate. The other you, I mean."
    ED-E: <Happy beeping>
    The Courier: "What's a Chicago?"
    ED-E: <Expository beeping>
    (ED-E's dialogue (Lonesome Road))
  2. Tommy: "Dad! Hey Dad! Check out this robot I found!"
    The Dad: "Careful, Tommy - I've never seen a robot like that before. It might be dangerous."
    Tommy: "He's not dangerous! Look, he's hurt! Can we take him home, Dad? Maybe Mom can fix him!"
    The Dad: "I don't know, son... what if someone comes looking for it?"
    Tommy: "Please? He looks so lonely! Maybe if Mom fixes him, he can help her out around the garage?"
    The Dad: "All right, boy. But if he breaks anything, it's coming out of your allowance!"
    Tommy: "Yay! He'll be just like RALPHIE, only this one's not a toy!"
