What is a fallout ghoul?

A Fallout ghoul almost looks like zombie but are humans who have been affected from the aftermath of the bombings, causing their flesh to look like rotten. The first ghoul in Fallout is “Cooper Howard” or also known as “The Ghoul”. He used to be a spokes person for the Vault-tec and later transformed into a ghoul after the bombings took place in Los Angeles. He has a typical cowboy persona and is a bounty hunter who would do almost anything to get his hands on the vials which are temporary elixirs for ghouls in Fallout.

Ghoul are very similar to humans except their physical appearance. They are known to be very same in terms of intelligence, common sense, and personality such as walking, talking and having their own preference over something.

In episode 4, you can see Lucy Maclean releasing some ghouls from their containers. Some of the ghouls end up being feral ghouls that try to attack Lucy and the other two men sitting on the couch. As per the Fallout universe there are 3 types of sub species in feral ghouls which are more dangerous than the regular feral ghouls.

They are Feral ghoul roamer, Feral ghoul reavers, and lastly the rarest one being Feral rotting ghouls that are the hardest to kill and attack humans simultaneously with an urge to kill.
