Diamond City Blues



  • During the Diamond City Blues quest he carries a substantial amount of caps, presumably for the chem deal.
  • If the player character kills Trish and her three bodyguards, Nelson will run away from the scene and can still be found alive in the Colonial Taphouse should he not be harmed. If he lives, his father will not send Triggermen after the player character.
  • Should he survive, he will automatically tell Marowski about the involvement of the Sole Survivor.
  • Should he be killed, his body will not de-spawn and remain in the world.
  • Days after being killed his father will confront the player character about the death of his son. The Sole Survivor can admit to it or lie.
  • After killing Nelson, Triggermen will spawn in Diamond City and attack the Sole Survivor on sight, shouting phrases like "This is for Nelson Latimer!" This can be stopped by apologizing and paying Nelson's father 2000 caps or by killing Nelson's father.


Nelson Latimer appears only in Fallout 4.
