Sorry, I'm right in the middle of a possible breakthrough. I can't talk right now.

Scribes are are tasked with creating and keeping records of the technology recovered and used by the Brotherhood and experimenting with new weapons and other useful devices to be used in the field by the Knights and Paladins. Scribes rarely leave the safety of the BoS bunkers, but they are sometimes called into the field to examine a piece of technology or perform a task beyond the skills of the Brotherhood soldiers. The attitude of many scribes in the Brotherhood can be described as techno-centric. While a great number study history and cultures, the majority of scribes focus their studies on subjects related to the acquisition, repair, or creation of technology.[1][2] These Scribes are those at Lost Hills in Fallout.

Scribes are tasked with creating and keeping records of the technology recovered and used by the Brotherhood and experimenting with new weapons and other useful devices to be used in the field by the Knights and Paladins. Scribes rarely leave the safety of the BoS bunkers, but they are sometimes called into the field to examine a piece of technology or perform a task beyond the skills of the Brotherhood soldiers. The attitude of many scribes in the Brotherhood can be described as techno-centric. While a great number study history and cultures, the majority of scribes focus their studies on subjects related to the acquisition, repair, or creation of technology.[3][4]

There are three major Scribe orders: Each is headed by a High Scribe (Proctor), designated by the Head Scribe.[5][6]

  • Order of the Sword is responsible for weapons research and development. Guns, ammunition anything of an offensive nature.[5]
  • Order of the Shield is responsible for defensive research. Power Armor, defensive structures, anything that is intended to protect.[5]
  • Order of the Quill preserves the written knowledge of the ancients, seeking out all manner of books and holotapes.[5]

She operates out of the former Library of Congress to the northeast."
