No Super Mutants, civilians or traveling salesmen allowed. Which are you?”
A veteran Brotherhood warrior whose skill in combat outstrips his skill in diplomacy (which once nearly caused a fight with a Megaton resident), Bael is tasked with filtering any visitors to the Citadel. In recent times, this means any and all people who are not members of the Brotherhood. This suits him just fine, as he views "civilians" with contempt. His bad attitude is certainly as much of a gate to the Citadel as the giant hunk of metal behind him.
Bael stands at the Citadel's gate guarding it until Take it Back! is completed.

Drops on death
Paladin Bael appears only in Fallout 3.
- Fallout 3 Official Game Guide Game of the Year Edition p.89: "Paladin Bael
Bael is a worthy fighter, but he hasn't mastered the fine art of conversation, a shortfall that almost led to an altercation with a Megaton resident. Still, his a commanding presence ensures that undesirables stay well away from the entrance gates."
(Fallout 3 Official Game Guide Game of the Year Edition Wasteland Census)
- The Lone Wanderer: "Can I come in?"
Bael: "Negative. No Super Mutants, civilians or traveling salesmen allowed. Which are you?"
- The Lone Wanderer: "I can come in now... right?"
Bael: "That's an affirmative. You're clear to enter. But I still don't like it. Or you."
- The Lone Wanderer: "What can you tell me about the Brotherhood of Steel?"
Bael: "I can see you're trying to appeal to my good nature. Pity for you I don't have one. I'll give you this one for free -- we use our big guns to kill big Super Mutants, so people like you can sleep at night."
