Typhon is an elderly ghoul[1] living in Broken Hills in Fallout 2.


An elderly ghoul with exceedingly white skin, and intelligence fairly gleaming from his eyes.[1] Born before the Great War he suffered alongside his father Set[1]: former king of Necropolis. Unlike his father he grew up as a ghoul, never knowing any other way of existence.[2] As a result it helped him acclimate to his new condition, developing a good sense of humor.[3] Such as with his place of dwelling, the Old Ghoul's Home.[4]

After the fall of Necropolis Typhon gambled for a time, amassing a small fortune as a foot-racer. However, by 2241, he forgot that the change in currency made his bottle caps worthless.

Behind the scenes

  • The Greeks also made a connection with Typhon and the Ancient Egyptian god Set.


Typhon appears only in Fallout 2.


  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 1.3 Typhon's character description: "{100}{}{You see an old ghoul.}"
    "{101}{}{You see Typhon, son of Set.}"
    "{102}{}{You see an old ghoul with intelligence fairly gleaming from his eyes.}"
  2. The Chosen One: "{106}{}{Who are you?}"
    Typhon: "{155}{}{I'm Typhon. Y'ever hear of Set? He used to run the old-time town of Necropolis. I'm his son. Got born before the radiation hit us, so I grew up mutated. Ain't never been any other way for me.}"
  3. The Chosen One: "{156}{}{Tell me about Set.}"
    Typhon: "{163}{}{"Total bastard" would be a fine way to describe the old man. Being turned into a ghoul from the radiation didn't do much for his sense of humor or sense of authority, let me tell you. 'Course, it kinda screwed up everyone's brains. I think growing up ghoulie made it a little easier on me.}"
  4. Typhon: "{103}{}{Howdy there, kiddo, and welcome to the Old Ghouls' Home!}"
    The Chosen One: "{105}{}{Old Ghouls' Home?}"
    Typhon: "{152}{}{It's kind of a joke. There ain't any ghouls but old ghouls. We're all sterile, see, but we're incredibly long-lived. We're the first and last generation of ghouls. This is a place for those of us who just wanna rest for a while.}"
