Oh alright, alright. But if you start blabbing, I've got some buddies with itching trigger fingers...

Griffon is a racketeering ghoul in the Museum of American History in 2277.

BackgroundEdit

Griffon is a huckster, a con-man, a snake oil salesman. His current scheme is purchasing Aqua Pura, and stashing the water to sell to humans the Brotherhood isn't giving it to (raiders, slavers, Outcasts, etc.). He then puts regular irradiated water in the Aqua Pura bottles, and sells it to ghouls in Underworld as "Aqua Cura," claiming it reverses the ghoul condition. He wears a wig he found in the Museum Authority stock room, and for a ghoul, looks pretty healthy (just a coincidence, but helps make it seem like he's selling the real deal).[1]

QuestsEdit

  • The Amazing Aqua Cura!: Speaking to Griffon will start the quest. Through certain quest options, the player is able to blackmail Griffon and receive money each week.

Effects of player's actionsEdit

  • Griffon can be killed by an angry mob if the player chooses certain paths in The Amazing Aqua Cura! quest. If he somehow manages to defeat the mob, he will exit out the Museum front door and will permanently disappear from the game.

Other interactionsEdit

  • When you are wearing a wig or Button's wig, you are granted a new speech option saying that you like his haircut, to which he responds in a nervous tone that the player's hair and his look almost exactly the same.

InventoryEdit

Dirty pre-War businesswear
Wig
Chinese pistol Bottle cap x600 -

NotesEdit

  • Griffon is seemingly one of the few ghouls with perfect hair, although in reality, it's a wig.
  • Although the world model of Aqua Pura is the same as dirty water, he is holding a bottle of purified water as he talks on the stage.
  • When he is attacked by the mob, he may run into the museum's lower halls, which are infested with feral ghouls. Oddly, even though he is a ghoul himself, he will still be attacked.

AppearancesEdit

Griffon appears only in the Fallout 3 add-on Broken Steel.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • His style of salesmanship resembles 19th century snake-oil vendors, right down to the large covered wagon, big banner, stage and fraudulent claims over the "miracles" his product can perform.
  • His haircut, manner of deception, and appearance (being a ghoul), is very similar to the aliens in John Carpenter's They Live. He is very likely a tribute to the films.

BugsEdit
