Don't tell me you actually cracked my code? In the holotapes? Ha ha ha ha ha! Well hey, it's only been... what? Two hundred years?

Edward L. "Eddie" Winter is a ghoulified pre-War mob boss living in Boston in 2287.

BackgroundEdit

Eddie Winter was a big-time notorious criminal operating in Boston before the Great War. The Boston Bugle reported that he owned a sub shop in South Boston. He ordered the assassinations of Ron Trevio and Johnny Montrano, Jr., and participated in several robberies.[1]

In an official investigation, code-named "Operation Winter's End", by Captain Jonathan Widmark and his task force of the Boston Police Department, the extent of Winter's crimes were revealed. He was involved in almost every type of crime, ranging from petty larceny to first degree murder. It was suspected, though not proven, that Winter was behind the murder of the fiancé of the lead detective, Ms. Jennifer Lands, in August 2077.[2]

In October of that year, the Boston Police Department closed the case against Winter. This was done due to Winter's deal with the BADTFL to incriminate his associates. His cooperation with the district attorney granted him immunity from prosecution for his crimes.[3]

Eddie Winter became a ghoul of his own volition through a radiation experiment to obtain eternal life.[4] He was also a rather large and ruthless crime lord, a life choice that eventually catches up to him.

Behind the scenesEdit

50 Vault-Tec C.E.O.The following is based on unverified behind the scenes information and has not been confirmed by canon sources.
  • Eddie is most likely the Fallout universe's parallel to real life kingpins James Joseph Whitey Bulger Jr. and Howard Thomas "Howie" Winter, both of whom once led Boston's infamous Winter Hill Gang. Like Eddie, Whitey Bulger led a prosperous criminal empire before suddenly disappearing around Christmas in 1994. Bulger remained at large for 16 years until his arrest on June 22, 2011 in Santa Monica, California. He was found guilty of multiple counts of racketeering, money laundering, and murder (among other charges) on August 12, 2013. Bulger's story was eventually made into a movie, Black Mass, starring Johnny Depp as Bulger.
