What does your survivor look like? What gender did you pick? Show off your character and the story that his/ her face tells here!

(Also it's cool to see how your character progresses over time, so you can keep editing your post to show that off too)

I went for tired eyes and greying hair (he was supposed to be clean shaven here) to show that he's more of a regular, office going - middle aged guy who's not really fit for the wasteland when the game starts off.

He's not particularly strong, nor is he charismatic (kept those two attributes low, whereas usually those two are the main strengths of most of my Bethesda characters), but he is an intelligent, perceptive and agile guy with luck on his side.

Edit: Here's him in the wasteland, with a pair of new (old?) sunglasses he "found" -

That hair and beard's growing! Ain't no time for haircuts in the wasteland!

So what does your character look like? What's your story? Where you come from and where you wanna go this time?

Update Edit: Day 85. The fearful howl of the wasteland has become an inviting whisper.
Update Edit: Day 85. The fearful howl of the wasteland has become an inviting whisper.

Just made my character for my second play-through, that is to say, the real one. I always use my first characters as prototypes to learn the capabilities of each iteration of Bethesda's systems and what kind of character I can actually find the most enjoyable to play within those constraints. Gonna try stealth this time with all my damage resistance coming from the endurance perks so I can wear one of those sweet outfits that don't allow you to layer on additional armor, but look way cooler than the piecemeal armor bits you get.

Yeah I'm doing that too. Stealth + endurance. And ditching charisma this time to see how I'd handle myself in a wasteland - I don't think I'd be able to talk myself out of situations in real life :P

Went with a real scruffy look, no one has time to shave in the wasteland!

Been wearing this hat since I got it. Adds to the scruffy wastelander look considerably I think.

@grimhild: Dang that is great! Did it take a long time to do? I was planning to play a female char and this is exactly what I would have shot for, but probably failed.

Hmmm makes me wonder now, are there face codes one can extract from save files or the like.

@tennmuerti: Somewhere just under an hour I guess. I was eating cup noodles and watching the COOA for Toonstruck while I was creating her and the video just picked back up at about the 45ish minute mark hehe. And if you find out about some type of face code thing I'll gladly share it.

@confusedowl: I want that hat. I didn't find a knit cap once when I powered through the main questline. Found a ridiculous amount of bowler hats though, for some reason.

@selbie: I'm getting Freddy Mercury vibes from that bottom pic, I dig it.

I made a lady, the female VO is a lot better than the male.
Also this dialogue system sucks.

Here's my gal, Autumn. She and Nate were already pretty well-worn survivalists before it all went down. Didn't consider background too much (though they imply you're in the army, right?) but I'd probably say she was some kind of spec-ops agent, while he worked as an vehicle engineer for the armed forces. Autumn's wily and charismatic, but favours small arms over small talk. She's got a lot of good in her heart.

Her name is Carlotta Problems. I was going for the crazy homeless angle. The VO totally ruins the roleplay, however.

@bones8677: I was really surprised when I heard my character being referred by his name as well. You don't often hear text-to-speech implemented as other than gimmick, but this was a nice touch.

@crommi: Not text to speech. They just recorded a few names. If your character has a first name that's not in the pool, but the last name is, IE Pennyloafers Frost, Cogsworth will refer to you as Mr/Mrs. Frost.

@y2ken: It's heavily implied that the female protagonist was a lawyer. You can find her Juris Doctor in the prologue, so she's probably not spec-ops haha.

Of course it's a game, so w/e don't let that stop your own fun.

To start with I went for my standard Mexican Bandito / Manny Pacquiao Fallout character, which I was pretty happy with, but LOL at the dissonance between how he sounded in my head and how the voice actor sounds.

@brendan: Hahaha.. thanks

@grimhild:That second photo - do character faces become muddy over time, or did you add it as make up/ blemishes or something? I haven't really checked my character's face again.

@gerrid: Wow. The guy looks like her son though.

my favourite thing was, as I made her older and older and uglier and uglier, he kept saying "you look so beautiful honey", and as I gave her lank, greasy hair: "love your new haircut!"

Not very far from the default male. I actually spent more time creating the female character, but I've always played dudes in Fallout and... well... consistency I guess. I play as a woman in Elder Scrolls, a dude in Fallout. I used to be rocking a sweet leather jacket but that doesn't allow for many armor options, so I switched to the flannel and jeans so I could have armor in every slot as opposed to just the legs, but damn if my dude didn't look badass.

EDIT: You know... I think on my next play through I'm playing as Eric Pope in the alternate universe where Harmonix employees get first access to the vaults.

Couldn't decide between a Femshep or an Elizabeth Comstock-esque character, so I sorta made a hybrid.
