This tab is part of this user's fan- oh wait... no, this one is normal... it still shouldn't be confused with in game content.

Hello/Howdy/Aloha/Hola/etc. I am Eric Dopp, The Ever Ruler to newbies, TER to acronym affiliates, Ever to most, Zombie/Roughskin/Shuffler/Not-so-smoothskin to a few, and Mister Dopp to a certain Swede.

But you can just call me Ever, there's another Eric here and I have an affinity for originality and I like how it sounds.

The only place this information will be relevant is if you see me on chat (highly likely) or deem to play with me online (not-as likely).

IMPORTANT: I have expressed my affinity for being a ghoul as a roleplaying character to the point where many other users here refer to me as one. I for one find it endearing and welcome it with all the fictional prejudice it entails.

In case you wanted to know more about myself, here ya are

I love and know quite a good deal of tropes off the top of my head. Some users have even asked me to glance over their writing ideas, so if you have one I will gladly read it.

I really liked the Halo, Borderlands, Battlefield and Grand Theft Auto series. Very little complaints about them.

I think Guitar Hero, Rock Band, Call of Duty, and Assassins' Creed were better before they overproduced themselves, although I didn't give ACIII or Revelations a shot yet I still think my wallet would've preferred them released farther apart.

I know a little bit about The Elder Scrolls and enjoy playing them after being introduced with Oblivion. The same story with how I got into Fallout with Fallout: 3, except I know a whole lot more about Fallout.

I like music for the individual song more than the genre. I'm also impartial of the decade it came from. I'm not really involved politically/economically/religiously anymore. But if I were to pick, Mixed/Unsure/Atheist in that order.

I'm a self-professed Nerd and took 7 Advanced Placement (AP) classes during High School. I got a 5/5 on my AP Bio exam, 4/5 on AP Psych, 4/5 on AP Geography, 3/5 on AP Chemistry and 3s and 4s on the rest: US and European History, and Macro and Microeconomics.

I'm currently in college and majoring in Biology.

Pip-Boy favorite Picture
The Pip-Boy. Little do others realize just how often this small device is used. Lucky for me, I figured that out and began using Vault-Tec's various tracking systems to look for similar Pip-Boy users. To my surprise, I found four among the hundreds. Each of them with their own story to tell... and for me to listen... to my advantage.

I did not invent ghoulism to live forever. I did not invent ghoulism because I was threatened, paid or convinced to, extrinsic or otherwise. I invented ghoulism so that when history had no victors, that when people were forced to regret the mistakes of those before them... there would be someone around to remind them of just what fucking exactly led to the reality that can be so easily forgotten... in favor of escaping from it... for just... one. Moment. All of this, in the single hope that we never do it again and that to do otherwise... is insanity.

— The Ever Ruler validating his existence

You would have it so that humanity would grow as much as it could... you would have it consume as much resources at our disposal as possible, all the while thinking that prosperity is analogous with size, visioning that as truth... as an axiom... as utopia. What I have just described... what you have supported with your actions... that. Is. Cancer. I did not cure cancer by fucking feeding it!! I cured it, by making the rest of the organized body... recognize it... and kill it.

Ever's head

My name is Ever. It wasn't always this name. I used to go by the title Dr. Cyril Piotrowski, CEO of the Med-Tek corporation. But all things change, and new names are required to differentiate them.

I had lived a modest life. I learned as much as I found interesting and did all that I could do under my own volition. I would grow up with failing eye vision and an unpopular opinion so all that I could really do, was listen.

Out of everything I ever listened to, three words stood out amongst the rest, "You have cancer." Little did history know at the time, of the irony that was to befall me. I underwent chemotherapy... I underwent hours of surgery... and when it was over, I made sure... I'd never have to go back.

I had entered remission, a state where the cancer's growth wasn't deadly and because of it, my death sentence was lengthened. I did not sit around and wait for it to come back. Like a man possessed I did what would later be described by others as a "personal vendetta", something that many able men before me could not say... and many others who were not able...

I went to work immediately. I quit from my longstanding job at the Center of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to take up medicine. But I wasn't a specialist in medicine, I was a specialist in diseases. I was a specialist in things that invaded the body and took things from it. I would use my knowledge to give cancer its own medicine. I spent years trying to determine exactly what made cancer what it is... what exactly prevented the body from weeding it out like it does with so many other tumors.

Eventually, I had found it. I identified exactly how and when the body would stop recognizing parts of the body that grew out of control, under the guise that it was beneficial to the whole.

This achievement earned me appraise and attention from all across the world. I was even supposed to receive a Nobel Peace Prize for my treatment as well. I never received that medal... international relations prevented me from the Nobel awards from -ever- being handed out...

I realized then... that which I had just figured out how to see

I saw cancer. But this cancer... was not inside of me... it wasn't inside of anyone... it was all around me. It persisted in action yet not in physics. After all those years trying to find something so small that effected so much of my self... did I finally see it... affecting everyone.

Mankind, as it would be... had grown out of control. This homeostasis had been strained for decades but only now was it finally killing its host. Emergent properties of humanity, what we call sociology, politics, economics... were nothing more than simple properties of a single organism, multiplied to a larger scale to accommodate us all.

And this scale was one that I... could not handle

Though I would later go on to found the world's most productive and successful medicine corporation to abate this cancer... to use its proceeds and profits to prevent what is now reality. Eventually I had no choice... or rather... the choice was made for me... by everyone else.

The Cancer had grown too much... it had grown too far. Killing it was our only option. Feeding it was no longer possible and to starve it without retaliation... was not an easy option. It was our -only- option. It was reality. As humans, our emergent properties erected illusions to justify this inevitable conclusion. What we know as prejudice, racism, nationalism, and patriotism... all of these were nothing more than fallacies to provide every individual with the scapegoat they needed... to ignore the responsibility they had in leading to their last mistake.

They had prepared for wars. Small incisions to cut out chunks of the other in hopes that only they would persevere. These wars would be fueled by the motivation of those participating in it... all their motivation constructed by their illusions of reality.

This motivation would lead one nation, my nation, above all others in terms of what could be called, prosperity and survivability. When the time came when we could finally avert the cancer... where we could've abated it and give ourselves more time to control ourselves... the illusions persisted.

It is then I realized the final truth of the world. The final axiom of man. Cancer was not so much in our growth... it was in our inability to discern between what was hazardous... and what was beneficial. Our inability... our blindness to contributing factors... our... ignorance. All of them a result from one thing... one simple thing that I had been doing all my life and that too many of us had not...


Through their own reality they lived... and through the real one, others died. Through their suffering came their voice... muffled out by those in positions of "power". Overshadowed, outweighed, over generalized. Those people, who had only two ears... had to cater to the voices of millions.

Their focus aiming at their own needs and the illusion of the nation as a shape on a globe... merely exasperated this truth and solidified my choices.

It had become apparent that the world was entering a dangerous mindset much like the self-destructive patient. So... I took matters into my own hands... against all "legality" that could be called that at the time, against all ethics that too... were nothing but laws as strong as the paper they were written on.

I saw that man needed an edge to survive. Not to the inevitable chemotherapy of thermonuclear war or the small incisions of war... but their own cancerous tendencies...

The supposed human condition

I had realized I had to do something to make them see reality... whether they liked it or not. I would keep them alive... through thick and thicker, through the hell they endured with the hope that it'll be better once they're gone, and then never let that hell happen again. Just to make them see what exactly happened as a result of humanity's mistakes. Of their own mistakes. I would make cancer known... I would make it seen... I would make it combated in any way I could. The only way I could...

With humility

As it would be, nationalism... the biggest illusion at the time, would become my greatest adversary. A cancer's unique attempt to wipe out the other parts of it that it perceived to be the true cancer.

What would later be called the New Plague was a hiccup. An attempt by China, another organized region of cancer, to better themselves. It would later incite the other governments of the world to look into my research to bolster man's immunity. One that was inevitably taken by what was later known as The Enclave and given to West-Tek to form the Pan-Immunity Virion Project.

This hiccup gave rise to the incorrectly designated Forced Evolutionary Virus or FEV. What it really was... was a delinquent version of my Limit 115. A gross mutation and misshaping of it to their own end and their own will. A will, that I would. Not. Allow.

In the end I ensured that they would not spread this... treatment. That humanity's acquired immunity would prevail without my help... or not.

After it all, my work went unnoticed... its effects never truly realized nor understood. Its legacy, however, was very real. Humanity would never know without me telling them... that there was a reason humanity did not die from the radiation of the war. The same radiation that had easily killed them in times past. The very same killing potential that defined the standard measurement for radiation.

I had invented what would later be referred to as, "ghoulism". I released the strain shortly before the war in the midst of the New Plague and it went entirely unnoticed. I had disguised it as what it was also intended to be.

The vaccine to the New Plague

So when the war finally came... when the vats of the so-called FEV broke open and infected the air... humanity did not transform from it where insects and reptiles had. It would go without notice, that I had saved humanity from itself. I had saved it from the carelessness of its former protectors. I had saved it from its own weapons and its own tools so haphazardly used and disposed of.

I would go unsung throughout my ongoing history. I would be branded a zombie, a shuffler, a rotten old man who should've died from the radiation that caused me. In some regards, they're right. Had I not tried to do what I have done in the first place... FEV might not have even happened... my ghoulism wouldn't have even been needed, and perhaps this war... might not have happened as quickly as it did. Perhaps it could've been avoided...

But it wasn't

All I can hope for is that my treatment, my... ghoulism, at least helps humanity recover from its remission. But also... so that it never gets it again.

In the long run... I won't be here anymore. One can say I did it all for myself... I did it for the one thing that life worth living, the one thing that will be around even when I'm not... even when they too aren't around either. Everything I have done, everything I do... I do for Ever. That just happens to include the rest of us.

Her name is Shivers. One of the first things man did with cybernetics when it was discovered was not just for use as prosthetic limbs... but also on the limbs of their faithful canine companions as well. After meeting this little cyber-husky in Vault 66 (The cybernetics vault) I can see why. She's just a little too cute and perhaps a bit too clever... but she's been keeping me company ever since.

Oh this nasty bugger. Yeah this thing was one of the many crazy things that the government corporation, West-Tek, made in their laboratories using FEV for their same goal of creating a genetically engineered army. You won't see these things anywhere anymore. Not alive anyway. The only way I have it is as a preserved trophy that creeps me the fuck out.

This thing is another prime example of just how ghoulism affected the world. Like other mammals, the ghoulism seemed to have affected them similar to the humans it was intended for. It made their hair fall out, made them more resilient to the harsh environment and long-living. Before you get smart... I'd like to point out that there was at least one of these around before the war much like its ghoulified human counterparts.
