If I had two caps to rub together, I'd still give them to you. Afraid I'm as poor as a Brahmin herder though. But goddamn am I glad you walked up that ramp and lent us a hand. What about Ian? Did you find him?

Evan King is a resident of the town of Arefu and is the lone defender of Arefu in the year 2277.


Evan King was born in 2222. He has lived on this island all of his 55 years. He's watched the settlement shrink from 30 people down to its current population of merely 5. He is still responsible for the small settlement and is very careful whenever a stranger enters his domain. He is quite experienced in combat, having repelled attacks by raiders, slavers, and various creatures. To maintain Arefu's security, he had the northern bridge span destroyed and feels safer having to monitor only the southern approach.[1]

  • Blood Ties: When you arrive in Arefu to deliver Lucy West's letter, he will attack you by detonating a mine near you. However, it does not hurt you and he calls you to him. After conversing, he will ask you to check onto the residents' welfare. Upon returning to him with news of the West's violent deaths, he will send you to search for Ian West, who was taken away by The Family. Upon returning Ian to Arefu and making a deal with the Family to protect the town, Evan will allow you to make use of the weapons he has stored.
  • If you have destroyed Megaton before completing the quest Blood Ties, King will give the quest to you instead of Lucy West, although the speech options with Ian are identical to as if Lucy was still alive.

Effects of player's actionsEdit

  • Upon completion of the Blood Ties quest, there will be an extra dialogue option while talking to Evan King. If the Lone Wanderer chooses this option, King will give them one of the many alcoholic drinks for free. They will be able to use this option to gain the drinks as many times as you would like.

  • When the player first approaches King an explosion will occur without the presence of a mine or King physically throwing a grenade.
  • Inside his house (which requires level 50 lockpick to break in), you can find the Repair Bobblehead. The door is marked red but no Karma is lost. It is trespassing while inside though, and if you linger too long the whole town will become hostile to you (as well as the Family, depending on whether or not (and if so, the way) you concluded Blood Ties).
  • King also does not have a key to his own house, so you cannot find it by picking his pockets or killing him, unless he is in his house. This will happen if Alan is guarding Arefu.
  • King is refered to as a "spineless wimp" by Karen Schenzy.

Notable quotesEdit

  • "The shit's about to hit the fan in this cesspool, and I don't think I can stop them."
  • "If I had two caps to rub together, I'd still give them to you. Afraid I'm as poor as a Brahmin herder though. But goddamn am I glad you walked up that ramp and lent us a hand. What about Ian? Did you find him?"
  • "Nobody just passes through here. There's nothing to get to by way of this shithole. You've found yourself at a dead-end. The only bastards that still pass through are the Family. They're some lowlife gangers who've been giving us a hell of a lot of trouble lately. They're the reason for my itchy trigger finger."


King appears only in Fallout 3.
