I have tales of a Ghost that haunts these very grounds, as well as a Jan-u-wine Egypt-ee-an Mummy that you can see, right here in this marvelous sarcophagus.

The Great Ananias is an inhabitant of the Den in Fallout 2.


A short man with a mustache and sly look, Ananias is the Den's resident showman. He titles himself The Great Ananias and makes a living presenting his "jan-u-wine" mummy to curious visitors, at $25 per head. Though the ruined house next door houses an actual ghost, of Anna Winslow, Ananias' mummy is actually a sleeping ghoul, Woody.[1]

  1. The Great Ananias: "{116}{}{Hello, welcome, salutations! I am the Great Ananias (he offers you a slight bow, with a flourish). I bring mysteries from near and far friend. Mysteries from a world beyond our own... of the Netherworld.}"
    The Chosen One: "{118}{}{What kind of mysteries?}"
    The Great Ananias: "{200}{}{I know things that mere mortal man is not meant to know. Aiiieeee! Nyarloth...Oh, sorry (heh, heh). Got a little carried away there for a moment. I have tales of a Ghost that haunts these very grounds, as well as a Jan-u-wine Egypt-ee-an Mummy that you can see, right here in this marvelous sarcophagus.}"
    The Chosen One: "{201}{}{Tell me about the mummy. I'm just dying to hear more about that.}"
    The Great Ananias: "{112}{}{No, my friend, a MUMMY! Straight from the sands of ancient Egypt to the sands of the Wastes! Exclusively for you to see!}"
    The Chosen One: "{114}{}{(too yourself) Hmm, a mummy would kinda describe the way a ghoul looks. OK, I'd like to take a look -- how much?}"
    The Great Ananias: "{136}{}{For a person of your obvious class I would be happy to show this unique, and historic, specimen to you for a mere $25.}"
    The Chosen One: "{137}{}{OK, I'll cough up the dough. Now...Show Me The Mummy!}"
    The Great Ananias: "{139}{}{Simply open the sarcophagus lid and the marvelous Mummy will be revealed, in all its ancient glory, to you. But please, no touching, and, uh, no flash photography.}"
    The Chosen One: "{140}{}{Great.}"
    The Great Ananias: "{141}{}{There you go! The MUMMY! (the door to the sarcophagus swings open to reveal a desiccated corpse, that looks very much like an ordinary ghoul, standing in a poorly painted, chipped and cracked paper-mache sarcophagus.)}"
    The Chosen One: "{143}{}{Hey, wait a minute. That's not a Mummy. That's a ghoul. WOODY! Hey WOODY! Is that you?}"
    Woody: "{147}{}{(the Mummy, snorts, stretches languidly, and then looks at you with a sleepy blink to it's eyes) Hello. (he says, sleepily)}"
    The Chosen One: "{148}{}{Holy shit! That *is* Woody! Run Woody, run for it! Well, uh, gimp for it then! Go Woody go!}"
    Woody: "{152}{}{(Woody--for it is in fact Woody, not a Mummy, that stands somewhat drowsily before you--grabs the sides of the paper-mache sarcophagus, lets out a shriek and runs for the door, leaving a trail of toilet-paper 'mummy-wrappings' and a hasty "Thankee kindly, Stranger!" behind him.)}"
    The Chosen One: "{153}{}{Hah! I knew it! You're finished in this town. You're not the Great Ananias anymore, you're just another ass.}"
    The Great Ananias: "{155}{}{(The Great Ananias shrugs) I knew I should have picked up that mono-headed Brahmin instead. Oh well, back to the drawing board.}"
    The Chosen One: "{156}{}{Mono-headed brahmin? Sure, who would ever believe that! Goodbye, you Charlatan.}"
