More kids looking to get us all killed. Now it's up to security to keep them in line.

— Gomez during Trouble on the Homefront.

Officer Herman Gomez is a resident and security officer of Vault security of Vault 101 in the year 2277.


The classic good cop, officer Gomez is Freddie's dad. He has no patience for the Tunnel Snakes and tries to make sure that Freddie doesn't have anything to do with them. This is hard, because there may not be any other boys Freddie's age in the vault.[1]

* Only during Growing Up Fast and Escape!.


  • Growing Up Fast: If a scuffle occurs between the Lone Wanderer and Butch DeLoria over the sweetroll, Officer Gomez will intervene.
  • Escape!: Gomez will be helping Stanley and Andy fight radroaches. Provided he is not attacked, he warns the Lone Wanderer that security is on the lookout for them. Gomez believes that James is innocent, and suggests leaving the Vault to search for the former.
  • Trouble on the Homefront: If he lives, Gomez will be the first Vault resident the Lone Wanderer runs into. Staying civilized with him will have him escort the Lone Wanderer to either Amata or the current overseer. If Allen Mack attacks while any guards are around, the guards will immediately come to his side to protect him. This includes Officer Gomez.

Effects of player's actionsEdit

  • If the Lone Wanderer attack anyone in Vault 101 during Trouble on the Homefront he will retaliate.
  • Should the Wanderer have destroyed the Vault in the mentioned quest he may be discovered dead outside.

  • When returning to the vault during Trouble on the Homefront, he will have an entirely different voice type.
  • It is possible for Officer Gomez to be killed by Andy before the chance to talk to him. If Gomez gets in the way of Andy's flamethrower while they are fighting the radroaches, he will possibly die.
  • Officer Gomez will assist Vault Security if the Lone Wanderer is witnessed fighting any of its members (typically Officer Kendall). However, he will turn friendly again when combat ends if he is not harmed.
  • One of the destroyed homes in Springvale, closest to the elementary, has a letter in the mailbox from Vault-Tec addressing 'Mr & Mrs Gomez' that their family has been accepted into Vault 101.
  • No Karma is lost if he dies by the Lone Wanderer's hand during Escape!.

Notable contentEdit

  • "More kids looking to get us all killed. Now it's up to security to keep them in line." – Gomez during Trouble on the Homefront.
  • "Stanley, you turned the lights on too fast. You blinded the poor kid!"
  • "Don't think I don't know it. Why do you think I'm letting you go? I guess you're trying to follow your dad... outside. Good gravy, if I didn't know what the Overseer would do if he caught you, I'd never tell you to try for it, but it's your only shot. You take care and I hope you find your daddy."


Herman Gomez appears only in Fallout 3.
