Lorenzo is the father of Jack and Emogene Cabot. In 1894, he went on an expedition to Arabia in search of the fabled lost city of Ubar. Lorenzo eventually found a ruined city that he believed to be Ubar and discovered an alien artifact that granted him inhuman abilities, including unnaturally long life. However, this came with the cost of losing his sanity. Believing that there is still more to the city, Lorenzo had the city buried to protect its existence until a time that he is ready to return and uncover its remaining secrets.
Following his return to Boston, Lorenzo's family imprisoned him at Parsons State Insane Asylum in 1898. Jack devoted his life to studying the artifact and subsequently developing a serum derived from his father's blood that grants his family the ability to live for more than four hundred years. After two centuries since the Great War, Lorenzo manages to get into contact with a gang of raiders and promises to share his essence with them in exchange for freeing him from the asylum.
Interactions with the player characterEdit
Effects of player's actionsEdit
In the events of The Secret of Cabot House, the Sole Survivor can kill Lorenzo in his cell or release him. If Lorenzo is released, he can still be killed. Lorenzo has a number of superhuman abilities, including unusually high health, innate damage resistance on par with a full suit of combat armor, and the ability to release short bursts of energy that can deflect grenades and push the player character away when close. If the player character releases him, he proceeds to kill his family at their home and rewards the player character with an unlimited supply of his blood.
- After finishing The Secret of Cabot House by siding with Lorenzo you can run into him at a Red Rocket just northwest of the Collegiate administration building. He examines some dead ghoul settlers and tells the player character that he killed them to study their condition.
- Due to his outstanding age (over 400), this makes Lorenzo the oldest person in Fallout 4, being older than the Sole Survivor, Robert House, Shaun, Nora/Nate and every other ghoul in the game. This also makes him the third or second oldest living character in the Fallout universe, behind Toshiro Kago and possibly Paulson respectively, as well as the undisputed oldest in years consciously alive.
Lorenzo Cabot appears only in Fallout 4.
Behind the scenesEdit
|The following is based on unverified behind the scenes information and has not been confirmed by canon sources.|
Lorenzo's name, as well as the effects of his blood, would imply a tongue-in-cheek reference to the 1992 film Lorenzo's Oil. The inspiration for the film, Lorenzo Odone, suffered from adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD). His family researched and with assistance synthesized the eponymous Lorenzo's oil to treat their son, prolonging his life.
