Lionel Little is the murder victim in The Man in the Fallout Shelter.
Known as "Careful" Lionel Little, he was renowned as a meticulous and cautious man. He collected rare coins.
He got Ivy Gillespie - a African-American woman - pregnant and promised to take her to Paris so they could legally marry. He bought tickets and tried to sell his coin collection so he'd enough money for himself, Ivy and their unborn child. He offered the rare coins to a man named Gil Atkins, however Atkins instead killed Little and stole the coins.
However, Little had not told Atkins about one of those coins, which he kept on his person. The coin was rediscovered when the body was found, and given back to Ivy Gillespie. The coin was estimated to be worth over $100,000.
