In case you haven't spent the last 3 weeks playing Fallout 4 in lieu of sleep, food and friends, meet Nick Valentine!

He's a synth P.I. who has the consciousness of a detective from before the war. He's a potential companion. He's also a heartbreaker (if you can't tell by his name). Here are the reasons why you should love Nick Valentine if you don't already:

 

1. His design is just plain cool
