Tom was Dave's father[1] and the original leader of the Kingdom of Tom, the small settlement that is now the Republic of Dave.


He was apparently a ruthless dictator that Dave managed to overthrow due to his extremist leadership tactics, after returning after being banished from the kingdom by his father. Dave managed to take the land and created a democracy for his two wives and children, plus the other inhabitants that remain there.

Whether Tom was killed, cast out, or simply remained in the new Republic of Dave until he died of old age is not known.


Tom is mentioned only in Fallout 3.


  1. Dave's dialogue: "My father inherited his political power from birth and renamed this great nation the Kingdom of Tom."
