Smoothskin? You know, because your skin is so smooth... and tasty...

Winthrop is the technician of Underworld in 2277.


Winthrop is Underworld's technician. He checks on the electricity, makes sure any plumbing is in working order, and generally takes care of everything maintenance-wise. He restored and reprogrammed the robot Cerberus, and is responsible for its maintenance.

This Old House: Due to a steadily declining supply of resources, Winthrop will trade the Lone Wanderer one stimpak, RadAway, or Rad-X in exchange for every five pieces of scrap metal. With a high enough Strength, he can be threatened into handing over ten stimpaks for free. After this, he will refuse to speak with the Lone Wanderer again.

Notable quotesEdit

  • "Smoothskin? You know, because your skin is so smooth... and tasty..."
  • "Now tell me, how is it that you ended up down here in Ghoul central without knowing what a Ghoul is? Huh? You know, never mind. I'm a Ghoul. Everyone down here: Ghouls. That's what we are. And before you ask "what's a Ghoul", lemme tell you. We're not the walking dead, despite the rotten flesh and the smell. We're mutants... sort of. At least, I think we are."
  • "For every five bits of Scrap Metal you give me, I'll give you a Stimpak, some RadAway, or a dose of Rad-X. I need scrap, you need goods. We both win."


Winthrop appears only in Fallout 3.
