The ghoul is someone who has been mutated by exposure to radiation and then the Forced-Evolutionary Virus (FEV). Not long after contracting the virus, their hair and skin fall off, and their muscles take on a greenish tint. Because of the radiation and virus which have mutated them, they are incapable of reproduction. On the other hand, they are extremely long-lived; the oldest known ghoul, going by the name of Harold, was born before everyone was forced into the Vaults during WWIII, making him over 100 years old!

Mr. Handy
100 points
A pre-War relic, Mr. Handy is a robot with six arms that floats along on a cushion of air, powered by a nuclear reactor. The robot is capable of speaking and understanding English (or any language programmed in), but has a tendency to take comments literally. Most are programmed for maintenance work; however, they can be programmed to perform anything from Housekeeping to Surgery.

Super-mutants are folks who have not been affected by radiation before being exposed to FEV. They put on a lot of mass, adding up to almost 400 lbs of pure muscle to their frames. Most lose their sexual identity; and all are sterile. A side effect of unmutated FEV is a decrease in mental faculties and increased aggression.
GM's Note: I am reserving the Super-Mutant for villains; they cannot be PCs.
