“I find it hard to believe that an Enclave soldier is here to rescue me. More likely, you are here to build up my hopes so that you can dash them to pieces.”— Xarn to the Chosen One when they are rescuing him
Xarn is an Intelligent Deathclaw being held captive in Navarro in Fallout 2.
Xarn is an intelligent deathclaw. He was taken prisoner by Navarro personnel and has been sentenced to death.
Deal with the deathclaw: The Chosen One can either kill Xarn, free him, or recruit him as an ally in that quest.
In battle, Xarn is a powerful companion. He has 250 HP and can attack up to four times with his claws. He cannot heal himself, though the player character can still heal him. He follows them throughout Navarro until they leave the area, at which point he leaves.
Xarn appears in Fallout 2 and is mentioned in the Fallout Bible.
