I wouldn't advise that, smoothy. You'd fry into a crisp. Me, I like the warmth, but I wouldn't recommend it for you. Quite a bit of heat and radiation in there.— Hank on visiting the reactor core

Hank is a glowing one living in Gecko in 2241.


Hank is a glowing one with a concerned look on his face.[1] In charge of maintaining the reactor and ensuring it works properly, Hank is approachable and courteous for a wastelander. He is quite talented in technical matters, but leaves major repairs and part swaps to the resident tech wizard, Festus.
