The Sons of Suzuki were founded roughly in 2277, when the cryogenic fail-safes in place within the Plum Island Research Facility failed and workers and subjects from Pre-War times began to awake in a new world. The majority of those that lived were ghouls, and after learning of what happened to society after the Great War, struggled to make sense of the world and their place in it. One of those survivors, Shawn Janowicz, an evolutionary biologist that had worked for Vault-Tec, reasoned that ghouls were perfectly adapted to thrive in the ruins of the world, and as such, were the next step in human evolution.


The Sons accept anybody into their group, ghoul and non-ghoul alike. Currently, the group has about fifty members, with roughly 2/3 of them ghouls and 1/3 of them humans. Most were either workers or subjects from Pre-War times, but a handful of members have joined since 2277 on, when the group became first became active. Shawn Janowicz, the de facto leader of the organization, is a human who has yet subjected himself to the ghoulification process.

Activities & Interests

Using U.S. government and Vault-Tec technology, the Sons of Suzuki conduct research as to how to best ghoulify humans and animals alike.


Because the group is so small and so localized, it has yet to really interact with groups other than small groups of settlers on Plum Island or on the nearby coast of Suffolk, Long Island. Because their research needs living subjects to test it on, the group has forcibly kidnapped some of those it has come in contact with. As a result, the Sons of Suzuki are slowly earning a negative reputation among these groups, but because the group is still a fledgling organization, most write off the stories as fiction.
