— Chris Avellone and the Vault Dweller

Chris Avellone is, around 2161, the most feared bounty hunter in the Wastes.


Chris Avellone and his entourage hunt down transgressors for profit and thrill. He has an abrupt attitude and is serious about his money. He does not like child killers or any annoying people for that matter.

In his later years, he became the king of the dancefloor and womanly conquests in New Reno. Eventually, he ended up buried in Golgotha.

Other interactions

  • Chris is found in a small, ruined building just west of the Followers of the Apocalypse library along with three thugs. Presumably, because they all carry weapons and fight alongside him, the thugs are part of Chris Avoellone's team.
  • When spoken to, most dialogue choices just end with a shove towards the door. However, when Chris is first told the player character "wants a 'donut' ", Chris takes it as bad humor. The second time, he gets annoyed and attacks.

Tell me about



This Chris Avellone appears in Fallout and is mentioned in Fallout 2.

Behind the scenes

The character was named after Chris Avellone. According to the Fallout Bible:

It's just a joke from Jess Heinig, one of the programmers. It's one of the five billion developer in-jokes in Fallout 1 and 2. The fellow [Avellone] has no past, and no future.

Also, a possible joke[1] of how Interplay wasn't paying him enough (or at all) is referenced.
