My heart bleeds for them. Led down a false path. They don't know their efforts will bring only pain and suffering to their fellow beings.

Morpheus is the leader of the Children of the Cathedral around 2161.


Outwardly, Morpheus is the supreme leader of the Children of the Cathedral. Though he adopts a pious demeanor and can sound a bit like an old-time country preacher, he does not believe that the Holy Flame, the Dark Lord, the Master is, in fact, God. Morpheus is intelligent, crafty, sly, greasy, and thoroughly evil, Ensnared by the promise of power rather than by belief, He has a short fuse and a terrible anger, which makes him an extremely dangerous individual.[1]

Morpheus used to be a member of the Rippers, a gang of inbreds familiar to him, but he eventually left the gang and became the leader of a doomsday cult. In 2151, he was found by the Master's spies and pledged his followers to him, forming the future core of the Children.

Morpheus lives in the Cathedral, on the tower's highest floor. It is here that he oversees the immediate goals of the Children and holds their Communion by means of large, propaganda-esque monitors located on the main floor. He died in 2162 by the Vault Dweller's hand, either in person, or as the Cathedral was destroyed.

Tell me aboutEdit



  • He seems to follow the Master blindly, never questioning his superior(s) as can be told from dialogue choices.
  • It may be impossible to talk to Morpheus because the nearby Nightkin might turn hostile, which, by extension, also makes Morpheus hostile.

Notable quotesEdit

  • "Ahh...So you are the Vault Dweller I've been hearing about. Surprised? I have my sources. Now, I will take you as a gift to the Master. He'll be very pleased."
  • "My heart bleeds for them. Led down a false path. They don't know their efforts will bring only pain and suffering to their fellow beings."
  • Vault Dweller: "I seem to have hit a nerve." Morpheus: "I do not tolerate insults. Guards!"
  • Vault Dweller: "I'd like to give your master a bit of information about my Vault." Morpheus: "I do not have a master, you imbecile!"


Morpheus appears only in Fallout as a talking head. He is voiced by David Warner.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • Morpheus was a former member of the Rippers as mentioned in Nicole's dialog file and his combat taunts when dodging an attack. His early name was Orfeo.
  • His name is a reference to the principal god of dreams in Greek mythology.
  • His talking head was originally intended for the cut Elder of Shady Sands.
