That's right! Yipee! I'm going home. Ask Vegeir if it's all right for you to take me home. He's been so nice to me, I don't want to leave until he says it's all right. Please hurry; I'm homesick.— Jonny to the Chosen One

Jonny is the son of Balthas of Modoc in Fallout 2.


Jonny is a small boy with blonde hair and blue eyes. He is your typical all-American looking kid.[1] In the town of Modoc, Jonny's father Balthas is the town leather worker. Jonny has gone missing and his parents want closure. His father states that Jonny and his pet Laddie were inseparable, and when Laddie came home alone, they began to worry.[2] He suggests that the Chosen One takes Laddie with if they agree to search.

  2. McBaltha.msg: "Does that mean you'll help me? Thank you! Jonny was last seen playing cowboys and Indians with his dog Laddie out front. The two of them are inseparable; in fact, that's how we knew something was wrong. One day, Laddie came back without Jonny. We've been searching ever since. Take Laddie with you; maybe the two of you will be able to find Jonny."
