Don't mean to rush you, Doc, but, I'd feel better if we, got this over with...

Jonas Palmer is a resident of Vault 101 in 2277.


In the late 2260s, Jonas was appointed to be James' assistant by the Overseer, who hoped he would be a voice of reason. Jonas and James forged a friendship very quickly and together they worked at examining and treating patients, as well as conducting routine experiments testing the health of the Vault. For an unknown length of time, James deliberately kept his assistant in the dark about covert experiments aimed at reviving Project Purity. Eventually, Jonas grew suspicious of the physician's activities and by mid-2274, Jonas was willingly aiding James with experiments related to Project Purity.

When James escaped from Vault 101, Jonas was killed by Officer Mack for trying to help James open the Vault.


He is the son of Anne Palmer and the grandson of Lucy "Old Lady" Palmer.[1]
