He's opening the Vault door!

Officer Richards is a member of Vault 101 security in Fallout 3.

Background[edit | edit source]

Officer Richards guards the locked atrium door to the Vault 101 entrance together with Officer O'Brian. He is a little less relentless than Officer O’Brian in his beating of those milling about Vault 101 during the escape of the Lone Wanderer, but remains under orders to stop those from breaching the Vault door.[1]
