CASE: The Mysterious Stranger

Sightings of a man dubbed "The Mysterious Stranger" have been popping up sporadically across the old U.S. for years now.

Best case, the man's an amoral lunatic.

Worst case, a prolific serial killer.

All anyone knows is his MO: appearing suddenly, killing without remorse, disappearing without a word. "The Stranger" has no known accomplices, no clear method for selecting his target, no calling card left behind.

Sightings range from the NCR and the way to East Coast, stretching back for decades. Now he's come to the Commonwealth.

Last thing this place needs is another psychopath running amok. Time to start putting together the pieces to put this one away.

Human male. Outfits vary, but most recent sightings describe a large overcoat and fedora (guy has taste, I'll give him that much).

One man? Multiple men? A ghoul with minimal scarring? Might explain the long passages of time between sightings.

Appears and disappears suddenly, suggesting preternatural infiltration abilities/access to advanced cloaking tech.

All but earliest descriptions suggest "The Stranger" uses only conventional arms, making infiltration training more likely.

(Perps like this make me wish The Institute sprung for thermal detection before giving me the boot.)

-Commonwealth (confirmed)
-Capital Wasteland (confirmed)
-NCR (old rumors)
