Alphonse Almodovar is the Overseer of Vault 101 in 2277.



In late 2258 or early 2259, Overseer Almodovar accepts James and his child into the vault, and James is assigned to be the new vault physician.

In 2260, Overseer Almodovar is widowed and left a single father when his wife dies from an unknown disease.

Unlike his predecessor, Alphonse Almodovar adopts a policy of isolationism for Vault 101: "No one ever enters. No one ever leaves."


Almodovar is a widower with one child named Amata. He is not very friendly to many of the vault residents, including the Lone Wanderer and James.

Interactions with the player character


Quest: Growing Up Fast

Main article: Growing Up Fast

The Overseer presents you with your first Pip-Boy 3000 at your 10th birthday party.

Quest: Escape!

Main article: Escape!

When James escapes, Almodovar thinks that you had something to do with it, so he sends his security after you. He orders the death of Jonas after James' escape and interrogates his own daughter during. Depending on whether or not you kill him, Amata will react differently toward you.

Quest: Trouble on the Homefront

If you do not kill Almodovar during your escape, he will tighten his grip on the citizens of Vault 101 resulting in a rebellion. After completing the quest The Waters of Life, a new radio station will appear on your Pip-Boy allerting you to the vault's predicament. (If you did kill Almodovar during Escape!, Trouble on the Homefront will still begin, only with Allen Mack as the new Overseer.)

* Only during Trouble on the Homefront.


  • During Trouble on the Homefront his computer terminal reveals that, after you left, the Enclave contacted the Vault in an attempt to gain access, but he denied them entry as he would not trust the lives of the Vault inhabitants to outsiders.
  • He will call you "young man" even if you are a girl during dialog in Trouble on the Homefront.
  • If you follow him after the party, he will talk to an officer and says that he only came to the party because of Amata.


Alphonse Almodovar appears only in Fallout 3.

Behind the scenes

  • The line "We need a doctor, not a scientist..." may be a reference to the "I'm a doctor, not a..." lines uttered by Dr. Leonard McCoy in Star Trek: The Original Series.
