This perk allows you to regain health by consuming Bloodpacks.

— In-game description, Fallout 3

Hematophage is a Fallout 3 special perk. It can only be gained through the Blood Ties quest.

Blood packs heal 20 Hit Points instead of only 1.

Obtaining the perkEdit

This perk can be obtained by convincing Vance to enter into a deal with the town of Arefu by passing a Speech check, a Medicine skill check, or an Intelligence check at the conclusion of the Blood Ties quest. Then, by returning to Vance and asking to be shown the ways of the vampire.


  • Finishing Blood Ties by killing The Family disables chances to get this perk.
  • If between finishing Blood Ties and attempting to get this perk, killing anyone in Arefu or making hostilities with Arefu or The Family, Vance will not teach this perk, and will instead call the Lone Wanderer an "asshole".

Behind the scenesEdit

Hematophagy is the practice found in certain animals of feeding on blood (from the Greek words, αίμα (blood) and φαγειν (to eat)).[1]
