— Klein,

Doctor Klein is a pre-War scientist and leader of the Think Tank operating the Big MT in 2281.

Background[edit | edit source]

Doctor Klein is a pre-War doctor and the chief head researcher of logistical operations and idea-ology at Big MT. Sometime after the Great War, he became a think tank to continue his work at Big MT. He seems to be overconfident in his intelligence, as he shows absolutely no grasp of the purpose or function of the advanced technology he tasks the Courier to retrieve.

Along with his original name and human memories, Klein has lost much of his knowledge of human anatomy, and refers to the Courier's fingers and toes as "penises". He is shown to fear and hate Dr. Mobius, although they were partners at one time. He seems to hold his colleagues in low regard, often ignoring their advice. At the end of Old World Blues, it is revealed that he orchestrated a plan involving stealing the Courier's brain in order for the Think Tank to escape their imprisonment in Big MT. He wished to go into the Mojave to conduct ruthless experiments on both the Wasteland and its denizens, much like the implementation of the Cloud in the Sierra Madre to test the chemical, Hazmat suits and Auto-Doc technology.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • When Dr. Mobius comments on what the scientists have forgotten, friendship is probably aimed at Dr. Klein, who barely acknowledges his colleagues, and even regards them more as understudies or employees than his friends.
  • Throughout Old World Blues he speaks in a very loud voice, as apparently the other scientists or Elijah have messed around with the volume control on his chassis.
  • Klein, along with "mutiny", has a hatred of the word "jism".

Notable quotes[edit | edit source]

  • "WHAT DID HE SAY? 'SPIT LEAD?' WHAT, LIKE PENCILS?"
  • "{Irritated}WHAT IS IT? {Explaining his irritation, more insistent, quieter}THE LOBOTOMITE IS {emph}ASKING ME THINGS, O, AND I AM TRYING TO IGNORE THEM. MY PROCESSORS CAN'T IGNORE YOU {emph}BOTH AT THE SAME TIME."
  • "WHAT IS THIS, A HIGH SCHOOL SCIENCE FAIR?! GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER, YOU'RE MAKING US LOOK LIKE A COLLECTION OF ROUND-EARTHERS!"
  • "{Slight anger}WHAT ILLOGIC IS THIS?! KEEP YOUR FILTHY PENIS-TIPPED FEET OUT OF OUR LABS AND SECRETS!"
  • "IT IS {Emph}NOT AN ARGUMENT IF ONE IS CLEARLY RIGHT AND THE OTHER IS CLEARLY WRONG!"
  • "10 fully erected hand penises..."
  • "8, give this lobotomite a combustion gun."
  • "It is truly the end of all intelligence when the lobotomite speaks more wisdom than you "geniuses"."
  • "GIVE. THE. LOBOTOMITE. THE. EMITTER."
  • "I can hear your tiny penis-tipped feet tromping around."
  • "Dala, get the spray before it excretes all over everything."
  • "And... are those... penises I see wriggling on its feet? Disgusting."
  • "Now it's holding up an array of fully erect hand penises. If it tries to insert them, activate vivisectors."
  • "You guys should try this intercom thing, it makes you sound like some sort of... SKY-God!"

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Doctor Klein appears only in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Old World Blues.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

  • His name is a reference to the mathematician Felix Klein who thought of the Klein bottle, a three dimensional non-orientable object in four dimensional space, an equivalent to the Mobius strip in a higher dimension.
  • The three perks that he can give the Courier (Heartless, Brainless, and Spineless) are references to The Wizard of Oz: the scarecrow was missing a brain, the tin man was missing a heart, and the lion was missing courage.
