The Bysshe Company, also called Bysshe Co., was a pre-War company and the owner of the research vessel USS Ozymandias. It apparently worked in the energy sector and acquired excavation rights in the area of Point Lookout, as well as becoming the new owners of Van Lowe Taxidermy in Appalachia.
Natural Gas Survey Project MD-16-001[edit | edit source]
The purpose of Natural Gas Survey Project MD-16-001 was to determine whether sufficient deposits of natural gas were present on Point Lookout to make large-scale diggings viable. The company was aware that potential biogas reserves on the island would likely be a result of the mass burials during the American Civil War, a fact it sought to conceal even from its own leading expert, Caroline Saunders, as it was aware of her "liberal" leanings. Martin J. Roach was given the task to monitor her and when it became apparent that Saunders was starting to show interest in the gas deposits' origins, the execution of "Code Blue" protocols in order to destroy all evidence was ordered.
Operation: Mary's Little Lamb[edit | edit source]
An ambitious covert plan to allow Bysshe to seize land, the Company commissioned Calvin van Lowe, its talented engineering employee, to create an Impostor sheepsquatch out of new strikebreaker Assaultron and cause a string of sheepsquatch sightings. Bysshe hoped to throw property values in Lewisburg into freefall that way, so that it could buy the town up. The project team consisted of Calvin as the main developer, Bo-Peep as the handler, and Big Bad Wolf as the fixer.
Bysshe Energy Partners was responsible for Natural Gas Survey Project MD-16-001.
Bysshe Natural Gas Co. was another subsidiary company of Bysshe Co. It sent Caroline Saunders to act as its Principal Geological Chemist for the field research of Natural Gas Survey Project MD-16-001.
The company name is a reference to the English Romantic era poet Percy Bysshe Shelley. Among his works was a sonnet called "Ozymandias", of which An Antique Land makes reference to.
Bysshe's Ozymandias appears in the Fallout 3 add-on, Point Lookout. The Bysshe Company and its subsidiaries are mentioned in terminal entries inside the ship's wreck. The company also appears in Fallout 76.
