Sole Survivor is the progaonist of Fallout 4 and depending on the player's choice can be either male or female. Depending on the gender of the protagonist, they are either the husband or wife in a family unit that existed before the war, with a son called Shaun.

[edit] Background

The sole survivor was spending the morning with his family when he was accepted in to Vault 111 by a Vault-Tec representative. His time with his family that morning is a brief one before the alarm is sounded, warning of a nuclear attack. As the alarm sounds, the sole survivor, their partner, and their son Shaun run for Vault 111. However they are outside the vault waiting for the doors to open when the nuclear explosion goes off, with the sole survivor surviving the blast after being lowered in to the vault. For reasons unknown they were able to survive 200 years before re-emerging from Vault 111 as the only surviving member.

[edit] Trivia

  • This is the first fully voiced protagonist in the Fallout series.
  • Much like the Lone Wanderer in Fallout 3, the Sole Survivor is shown to have a canine companion in marketing material.
  • In the character creation screen, there is an option for a facial hair option called "Lone Wander", this is in reference to the name of the protagonist in the previous game in the series, Fallout 3'.
  • Depending on the name given to the Sole Survivor, their name can be said by NPCs in the game due to Besthesda recording over 1000 popular names for the game.
