The men. They drag me away. Always with the needles, questions, and the pain. The stupid stupid questions over and over.— Amelia Stockton

Amelia Stockton is a runaway synth living in the Commonwealth in 2287.


She was captured by Covenant and is the object of the Human Error quest. She is the supposed daughter of Old Man Stockton, a prominent caravan merchant from Bunker Hill and a member of the Railroad.[1] If the Sole Survivor asks Old Man Stockton if his daughter might be a synth, he can give varying answers that generally state that she is in some way his daughter.[2]

Alternatively, if Old Man Stockton knows the Sole Survivor as a member of the Railroad from having completed Boston After Dark he will confirm her identity as a memory wiped synth and reveal the Institute took his daughter away and replaced her with the current one that is present and he is keeping her as she is the closest thing left to his daughter.[3]

  • She can be pickpocketed of her synth component, giving a player the rare ability to determine her nature before deciding her fate as it is possible to run past the guards and directly to Amelia before proceeding. Her nature as a synth is verified by her guardian, Old Man Stockton.
  • If the player character rescues her from the compound without activating the quest Human Error, she will not leave her cell even if opened and all the guards are killed. She just repeats, "I am not a synth" and "I just want all this to end" in the cell for the rest of her existence.


Amelia Stockton appears only in Fallout 4.


  1. Amelia Stockton: "You saved me. Thank you. My father. Old Man Stockton. He will reward you."
    (Amelia Stockton's dialogue)
  2. The Sole Survivor: "Doctor Chambers said Amelia was a synth. Is that true?"
    Old Man Stockton: "Is that what they said? That whole Compound sounds... insane. Amelia's my daughter and that is that."
    (Old Man Stockton's dialogue)
  3. Old Man Stockton: "Amelia's a synth though even she doesn't know that. After what she went through with those monsters, maybe she suspects. But there's nothing to be done about that now. A runner has already picked her up. Hopefully the poor girl finds a safe new home."
    (Old Man Stockton's dialogue)
