The Capital Wasteland Brotherhood of Steel is a splinter faction of the original Brotherhood of Steel active in the Capital Wasteland. Its headquarters is the Citadel, built into and beneath the ruins of the Pentagon in the center of the wastes of what used to be Washington, DC. As of 2277 it is led by Owyn Lyons. It is one of the most important and influential factions in the Capital Wasteland.

History

Society

The Brotherhood of Steel is a neo-knightly order that rose from the ashes of the American military of the West Coast in the years following the devastation of 2077. The organization's tenets include the eradication of mutants and worship of technology, and the Brotherhood has never been very keen on sharing their resources with their fellow Wastelanders (who they generally consider too ignorant and irresponsible to deserve such advanced technology).

The Brotherhood is generally beneficial to humanity, but they have their faults: They don't care for mutants; they worship technology (and in many cases put it above human life); and they don't like to share their choicest technological discoveries, despite the obvious benefits their technology could bring to the Wasteland. It's commonly accepted within the Brotherhood that the people of the Wasteland are not responsible enough to use (and maintain) all of the technology the BOS has at their disposal. They are known for trading some of their technologies with frontier communities and NCR states, but they keep the more sensitive technologies to themselves.

Unlike the chivalrous knights of old, members of the Brotherhood are not interested in justice for the obviously weaker and less fortunate around them, but instead in keeping their secrecy and preserving and developing technology. Their motives are often unclear, and Brotherhood members are not people to be trifled with. The east coast contingent of the Brotherhood has "gone native" under the leadership of Elder Owyn Lyons. Lyons believes he has a responsibility to protect the people of the Capital Wasteland from the Super Mutant threat. His knights have forgone the mission to recover new technology, and instead acts as a kind of security force. Lyons runs operations from a stronghold christened the Citadel, a heavily defended structure built from the ruins of an ancient building known as "the Pentagon."

Technology

The Capital Wasteland Brotherhood uses a power armor model similar to the T-51b power armor, but with some key differences. It is T-45d power armor. Relative to the Brotherhood faction based in the west, this armor is much more widely issued, being given to most front-line personnel, and not just select paladins. Given this, and the different design of the armor, it is possible that most of the Capital Wasteland Brotherhood's power armor was salvaged from the ruins of the Pentagon, and perhaps from other military facilities encountered during their journey east, and used to replace damaged or worn Brotherhood armor and Brotherhood T-51b power armor. It's also very likely due to Rothchild salvaging the Enclave's technology from the Mobile Base Crawler and overall Capital Wasteland Brotherhood usage of Enclave technology from fallen troopers, they have the Enclave's newer power armor models, such as the Advanced Power Armor Mk II,Tesla Power Armor, and finally the most advanced Enclave Hellfire armor.

They still uses Energy Weapons, mostly the Laser rifle and the Laser pistol. However, due to the difficulty of finding and producing new parts and maintaining the laser based weapons, many paladins use traditional guns, notably the standard Assault Rifle and the Chinese assault rifle.

Ishmael Ashur of the Pitt wears a version of a T-45d power armor suit, that has been heavily modified due to a long amount of use, and few pieces of power armor available. Since Ashur had worn this suit during the scourge, it's possible that the Brotherhood came across the suits earlier than at the Pentagon.

They have access to Liberty Prime up until the middle of Broken Steel. Liberty prime is a super-robot that stands 40-50ft tall, with enough weapons to decimate anything in its way. Finally destroyed by a massive 8 second long orbital missile strike. After the war against the Enclave, the Brotherhood gained access to Vertibirds.
