For the mentioned-only character, see Billy (Fallout 4).

Billy Peabody is a ghoul living in the Commonwealth in 2287.


Billy is the ghoulified child of Carol Peabody and Matt Peabody who hid in a fridge to protect himself from the bombs dropped during the Great War. When Billy entered the fridge he became trapped due to its locking mechanism not featuring an interior handle. The fridge, in which Billy has been trapped for two hundred and ten years, is found next to the road in between Neponset Park and University Point. Billy claims that he was playing with his friends before the bombs fell. He also claims that when the sirens went off, he tried to find his way back home to his parents.

  • If the Sole Survivor kills Bullet after selling Billy, they can restart the quest to take Billy home.
  • Although not currently explained, ghouls may be able to survive without food, water or air. Billy survived locked in a fridge for 210 years with presumably only what was left in the fridge. This suggests an ability to survive on radiation alone, despite being shown by Harland in New Vegas, as He eats radroaches and drinks pipe condensation to survive, and within Fallout 1 where the entire city of Necropolis will die out if you take their water purifier's control chip.
    • While ghoulification is known to halt the aging process in adults, it appears to halt all aging in humans, as Billy has remained a child for 210 years with apparently no further growth since its onset.
    • Despite being locked in a dark and very confined space for a considerable time, Billy is able to see without hindrance and can do motor functions just fine.
  • When you help him and return him to his family it appears that word travels fast. Seeing as Diamond City Radio will mention the Sole Survivor "reuniting him with his family" and Diamond City security will deny believing claims that they were seen with a ghoul kid ("there's no such thing I told him").
  • If the Sole Survivor gets into a fight with hostile enemies and Billy is near, he will crouch in cover and stay away until there are no more enemies that detect you/him.
  • Billy is currently the only and first ghoul child to appear in any of the Fallout games.
  • The robots at Easy City Downs appear to try and attack Billy when their combat inhibitors have been disabled and targeting parameters overridden. If you leave the location, eventually Billy will rejoin you.

Notable quotesEdit

  • That highway is completely wrecked.
  • What happened to the world?
  • You son of a bitch, I can't believe you're giving me to this monster, I trusted you.


Billy Peabody appears only in Fallout 4.
