Brody Torrance was a Cutthroats raider featured in Fallout 76.

Background

One of the many survivors of the nuclear holocaust in Appalachia, Brody was a teenager who struggled to survive in the nightmarish reality of the wasteland together with three other survivors, girls roughly his age. In November 2078, they were found by the Rivers family rifling through the garage of the Riverside Manor. Clarissa, Eve, and Amy found a new home under the wings of Olivia, Frederick, and Shannon, but Brody was turned away.[1]

Brody survived the winter, but the situation only worsened. Eventually, he joined the Savage Divide raiders, finally making ends meet as a faceless, nameless mook under one of Thorpe's trusted lieutenants. He survived the fierce campaign waged on the raiders by the Order of Mysteries until 2086, when he was assigned to a checkpoint out on the edge of raider-controlled space. Olivia Rivers, resentful of her mother's rule over the Order and looking for inroads into the raiders, recalled Brody from eight years prior and realized he could be her way in. She attacked the checkpoint on June 8, effortlessly taking out everyone but Brody, sparing him, save for a nick to the leg. The two agreed to meet again at a remote cottage at the Whitespring, meeting every couple of weeks. By July 12, they had a plan ready. As Brody was the sole survivor of Mack Frazier's veteran crew, Thorpe was skeptical when Torrence came to him. However, without any other leads, he played along and allowed the boy to continue working with Olivia.[2]

His trust did not seem to pay off at first, as on July 1, nearly a month later, Torrance was 200 caps behind on his quota and Thorpe was still losing men to the Order's attacks.[3] When Torrance forwarded Olivia's proposition of a deal - a blank check for anything she wanted in return for the Order - Thorpe's patience was an at end.[4] He was ready to have Torrance killed, but decided to give him one last chance when Olivia offered him a token of her trustworthiness: Intel on the location of Allison Long.[4]

Olivia was ready to show her commitment by feeding one of the Order's Mistresses to the raiders, so Thorpe assigned Torrance five men and sent him to Summersville. The choices were simple: The raiders were to return with either his head or the Mistress'.[5] Against all expectations, Torrance delivered her head. Thorpe knew when to reward and when to reprimand his subordinates. Torrance was immediately promoted to lieutenant, provided with seven raiders of his own choosing, and quarters in the Black Diamond lodge, where only the most trusted raiders were quartered. Torrance's only purpose was the elimination of the Order.[6]

Torrance continued to work with Olivia and Thorpe was satisfied. By mid-September, they successfully ambushed three Mistresses all over Appalachia, confirming that they were indeed of the Order. Thorpe agreed to Olivia's offer: In exchange for Cryptos, he would grant her - and Torrance - anything that was in his power to grant.[7] A week later, on September 20, Olivia delivered Cryptos on a Project Siphon holotape, loaded with all the mainframe data and all the Order's planned mission assignments for the next two months. Thorpe recognized the opportunity and immediately assigned Rose and Torrance to map out ambushes to reduce the Order's numbers until the Manor could be safely attacked. He also had his tech crew start trawling the data for other leads.[8]

Thorpe was elated to see the Order finally crumble before his very eyes. However, circumstances beyond his control denied him the ability to be the one to deliver the final blow to the Order: Olivia's cover was blown and she was forced to slaughter her way through the Order's ranks, killing her own father. When she notified Brody, he immediately informed Thorpe of the development. Although he was slightly disappointed, he recognized his good fortune and ordered Torrance to meet Olivia, ensure there are no loose ends, then return to him. Torrance did not fail: He shot Olivia and left her for dead after she eliminated her mother, bringing the Order and Thorpe's headaches to an end in November 2086.[9]
