Ed outside Vault 13
You see Ed. Ed's dead.”— In-game description.
As Ed it located at the vault door, it is speculated that he was amongst those sent out by the overseer to look for a replacement Water Chip.[verification needed]
Interactions with the player characterEdit
- Ed's purpose is twofold: to immediately show the player that the outside world is dangerous, and to tell the player that he wasn't the first choice of someone to send out.
Mariposa Military BaseEdit
- In Fallout, Ed's corpse appears outside of Vault 13. However, it also appears in a cell in the Mariposa Military Base, adjacent to Sarah and her Mutant lover, Flip.
- In Fallout 2, he appears in San Francisco in the lower parts of the tanker. Ed can also be seen in Redding under a pile of rocks near the working elevator that leads to the Wanamingo Mine.
- He is also referenced in Fallout: New Vegas outside Vault 34.
Behind the scenesEdit
A quote about Ed by Fallout lead designer Chris Taylor: "What's the deal with Ed? Ed's dead, baby, Ed's dead." This references a line from the Quentin Tarantino film Pulp Fiction, spoken by Bruce Willis' character, Butch, differing by a single letter (Zed's Dead).
