Last time I wandered too close to that mansion, some old ghoul sicced his dogs on me.


Geri is one of Desmond Lockheart's pet dogs who reside in Calvert Mansion in 2277.


One of Desmond's dog guards, Geri was found lame and abused by his raider masters. The situation was soon rectified after Desmond tracked the raiders down, trussed them up, and fed them alive to mole rats. Geri has been with him for years and has battled with loyalty and obedience, traits Desmond demands.[1]

Daily scheduleEdit

Along with Freki, Geri patrols the foyer and stairs of the mansion.

Icon cut contentThe following is based on Fallout 3 cut content and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

At some point during development it was intended that Desmond would offer Geri to you as a companion, similar to Dogmeat. It is unclear how far this idea progressed during development, but certain resources still exist in the add-on to go with this intended feature. In particular, certain script variables still refer to this option (such as the variable "DogFriend") and Geri is set to use some (but not all) of Dogmeat's dialog options pertaining to "adopting" him, as well as an AI package titled DLC04DesmondDogPlayerPackage, though the package is only set to ensure Geri stays in the mansion.

Effects of player's actionsEdit

  • Much to the fury of Desmond, both dogs are killed when Calvert Mansion explodes during Thought Control.


Geri is the same breed as the scavenger's dogs and Dogmeat.


Geri appears only in the Point Lookout add-on for Fallout 3.

Behind the scenesEdit

The names of the hounds are a reference to Norse Mythology. Odin was often portrayed as having two wolf companions named Freki and Geri. Freki roughly translates to "greedy", Geri to "ravenous".
