Lancers are members of the Brotherhood tasked with the maintenance and operation of its flying vehicles. The class was formed in the wake of the Purifier Conflict, as the Brotherhood gained access to large numbers of Vertibirds. By 2287, Lancers operate both Vertibirds and the Prydwen, an Airship built and maintained by the Brotherhood by Elder Arthur Maxson and Lancer-Captain Kells, as it continues to serve the Brotherhood's goals.
- ↑ Shadow of Steel quest description: "The Prydwen's captain, Lancer-Captain Kells, has ordered me to attend an address being given by Elder Maxson, the supreme commander of the Brotherhood of Steel."
Note: That Kells is referred to specifically as "the Prydwen's captain". Furthermore, Lancer-Captains may be encountered in random encounters at higher levels.
