Is that what your father told you? That you were born in that hole? That HE was born there as well? Oh, the lies we tell to those we love. Your father brought you to the Vault right after you were born. To keep you safe, you see. I remember it well -- you stayed in my saloon, after all.

Colin Moriarty is a resident of Megaton and the owner of Moriarty's Saloon in 2277.

BackgroundEdit

Some Megaton residents wonder who's really in charge -- Sheriff Simms, or saloon owner Colin Moriarty...

Fallout 3 loading screen

Moriarty, 50, has been in the United States nearly his entire life, and arrived in the country as a child.[1] He claims that his grandfather helped found the original settlement a few years after the war. His father used the nearby trade routes to amass wealth, which is used to help secure Megaton. Colin inherited this wealth when his father was killed during a raider attack when Colin was 14. Colin's first move was to build a fence around the town. Since then, the people have looked to Colin as a benefactor despite his running drinks, chems, girls, and games out of his saloon. Lucas Simms turns a blind eye to Moriarty's activities, because he is acutely aware that the town needs Colin's support and resources.[2]

According to Andy Stahl, Moriarty urinates in his bar's still. Moriarty is also very knowledgeable about information regarding the townspeople, and is always keeping tabs on them in case he needs to blackmail them later. He comes off as a very proactive businessman, extorting caps from whoever possible.

Daily scheduleEdit

He spends most of his time in the saloon but occasionally goes outside to smoke, leaning on the rail out in front of the bar.

QuestsEdit

  • Following in His Footsteps: He tells the Lone Wanderer where their father, James, is, and recalls the time he saw the them as a child. If the Lone Wanderer tells Moriarty they don't have 100 caps to buy information on James, he will ask them to find a woman called Silver and get his money back.

Effects of player's actionsEdit

  • If the Lone Wanderer kills Moriarty, Gob takes over the saloon and changes the name on the sign to Gob's.
  • Once Moriarty is killed, Nova can no longer be hired.

Other interactionsEdit

Jericho can be paid 20 caps to get information regarding Moriarty's key, specifically that it is around his neck, which unlocks Gob and Nova's pay stash in a locker by Moriarty's bed; however, this key (baseid 20751) was cut from the game.

InventoryEdit

NotesEdit

  • If, by any means, the Lone Wanderer is wearing Lucas Simms' sheriff's duster inside the saloon, Moriarty will state, "Who do you think you are wearing that badge in here?"
  • Despite Galaxy News Radio being played in Moriarty's Saloon, Moriarty himself will never acknowledge the Lone Wanderer finding his or her father, instead asking, "Any luck finding dear old dad?"
  • The Lone Wanderer loses Karma if he or she kills Moriarty.

Notable quotesEdit

  • "Colin Moriarty, at your service! Welcome to Moriarty's! My saloon, my home, my little slice of heaven in this backwoods little burg."
  • "I own a saloon, kid. Rumors are part and parcel. So I'll give you this one for free..."
  • "Is that what your father told you? That you were born in that hole? That HE was born there as well? Oh, the lies we tell to those we love. Your father brought you to the Vault right after you were born. To keep you safe, you see. I remember it well -- you stayed in my saloon, after all."
