Rory Rigwell is a dead character at the Irish Pride Industries shipyard in 2287.


Rory Rigwell was a lover of mirelurks, who believed they were not violent, just misunderstood[1].

In his endeavors to raise a peaceful mirelurk colony, he installed an announcement system in the Irish Pride Industries shipyard's dry dock from which he would only transmit "only positive messages" for his mirelurks, several of which are designed to encourage non-violent behavior[2].

Behind the scenesEdit

50 Vault-Tec C.E.O.The following is based on unverified behind the scenes information and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

Rory Rigwell is possibly based on the real-life case of Timothy Treadwell, mauled and eaten by bears in Alaska in 2003. Like Rory Rigwell and the mirelurks, Treadwell had believed the bears were his friends. The recordings of his voice and speech mannerisms are similar to the Rigwell recorded messages playing in the Irish Pride buildings.
