Dukov and his girls.

Dukov is a 43-year old[1] drunken womanizing Russian with one of the foulest mouths in the Capital Wastes in the year 2277.



He's one of the three surviving mercenaries hired by Allistair Tenpenny for an expedition into Fort Constantine. He is now retired to his estate (Dukov's Place) along the east bank of the Potomac in the D.C ruins.

Dukov was born in 2234[2].

Daily schedule

He spends his time drinking lots of alcohol and taking Jet with Cherry and Fantasia. Though you won't ever see it, he talks often about his "parties" with Cherry and Fantasia.

Interactions with the player character

During the You Gotta Shoot 'Em in the Head quest in a dialogue with the Lone Wanderer, Dukov states he is no bigot as Mister Crowley claims and even had a Ghoul party girl once. To complete the quest you must obtain Dukov's Special Key from him. There are a variety of ways to do this.

If you inform him that you are "going to put a bullet in his head," he will become hostile.

He refers to the Lone Wanderer as "clown shoes" if the player is male and "sweet cheeks" if the player is female.


Dukov appears only in Fallout 3.


  • Even though Dukov always talks about drinks - and that you should serve yourself - if you steal more than two bottles he will become hostile and attack you. The girls will be marked hostile as well.
  • There is a glitch where Dukov's special key cannot be used with Fort Constantine.
  • There is also a glitch where the Black Widow perk will not affect Dukov.

Behind the scenes

According to a cut note found in the game files, Dukov either used to be called "Vando" earlier in development, or he replaced Vando.
