Old Man Harris, a resident of Andale, will first warn the player to "get out of Andale before it's too late". If the player discovers the secret of the town, by going into either the Wilsons' shed or the Smiths' basement and subsequently kills the residents, Old Man Harris will become the guardian of the children and speak more openly of his history. He is also the father of both Linda Smith and Martha Wilson; this is able to be found out if you pass the speech checks.

Unmarked quest: Our Little Secret

Main article: Our Little Secret

Harris used to be a cannibal and is part of the unmarked quest "Our Little Secret". He asks you to leave and save yourself, stating things in Andale are not what they seem to be. Upon leaving Andale, the player is confronted by the town's other inhabitants regarding said cannibalism.


Old Man Harris only appears in Fallout 3.


  • If you kill Jenny and Junior's parents, they will come to live with Old Man Harris. If you kill Old Man Harris after this, the children do not seem to care or notice, even if you do it right in front of them.
  • Killing Old Man Harris will not incur a penalty to Karma, as a result of him being flagged as an 'evil' character. He does not, however, drop a finger.
  • If you attempt to use the Mesmetron on Old Man Harris while the children are still in his house, and provided he doesn't detect you while doing this (preferably using Chinese Stealth Armor or a Stealth Boy), he may begin to attack them with his fists, dealing no damage to the children but creating a disturbing scene nonetheless.
