What I wouldn't do to get my hands on one of those Enclave Vertibirds...

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 within Lyons' Brotherhood of Steel in Fallout 3.

Background[edit | edit source]

The following section is transcluded from Scribes. To modify, please edit the source page.

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]

The Scribes of Lyons' Brotherhood of Steel are members tasked with researching technologies and manufacturing weapons and armor for use in the chapter's operations. The Scribes are divided into three Orders, as per standard Brotherhood practice, focusing on the development of weapons, defensive tech, and knowledge. They are the backbone of the Brotherhood, the brains behind the muscle of Lyons' troops.

We are dedicated to preserving the history of the Brotherhood as well as unearthing the secrets of the pre-war civilizations. We have a single field associate: Scribe Yearling. She operates out of the former Library of Congress to the northeast."
