Biography and appearance
AffiliationVault 101
Mentioned inFallout 3

Before Alphonse Almodovar assumed the position of Overseer in the mid-2250s, this unnamed individual ruled over Vault 101.


This Overseer was strongly in favor of outside contact. In that context, he assembled a survey team led by Anne Palmer for a survey of the surrounding environs in 2241.[1] Years later, he vanished when he wandered in the Capital Wasteland. Though there were suspicions by some that Mr. Almodovar, or others who were hostile to his policies of outside contact, had a part to play in the disappearance of this overseer, nothing was ever proven.[2]

In 2277, as the vault experienced a radroach infestation, Stanley Armstrong lamented that since Mr. Almodovar had assumed control, the quality of the vault had been deteriorating. From Mr. Stanley's lament, one could infer that the previous overseer would not have allowed such an infestation.[3]


The Unnamed Vault 101 Overseer is mentioned in Fallout 3 and the Fallout 3 Official Game Guide Game of the Year Edition.

  2. Fallout 3 Official Game Guide Game of the Year Edition p.89: "Growing up in Vault 101 during a time when the Vault dwellers ventured freely into the outside world, Alphonse’s parents believed the Vault should have no contact with the dangers out there. As he got older, Alphonse knew he had to correct the gross lapses in security. He got his chance when the Overseer—a strong proponent of outside contact—disappeared one day while out in the Wasteland. Many suspected foul play, but the young, charismatic, strong-willed Alphonse Almodovar offered the Vault dwellers new leadership, and they had little choice but to accept."
  3. Stanley Armstrong: "This Vault's been going to pot ever since that young Alphonse took over."
