It's been a while kid, I guess the G.O.A.T. couldn't have predicted the way you'd turn out, could it?

— Edwin Brotch to the Lone Wanderer.

Edwin Brotch is a resident of Vault 101 and the vault's teacher in Fallout 3.


Edwin inherited the position of schoolteacher from his father, just like his father inherited it from his. In fact, there has been a Brotch as schoolteacher since day one in the Vault. This caused Edwin some distress, as with no children of his own, it appears he'll be the last Brotch to hold this position. Until then, he is the man responsible for administering the G.O.A.T. exams.[1]
