Gametitle-VBThe following is based on Van Buren and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

BAJAR is a robobrain in the Boulder Dome in 2253.


BAJAR stands for brain-in-a-jar. He is a well-informed scientist and possible companion. Though he is sometimes hard to control because of his slightly odd actions due to spending so many years without a body to control.

Other interactionsEdit

BAJAR can not do anything combat wise unless he is put in a robobrain body. Although his jar can be carried around and he can be asked questions for information. He is not willing to join the party unless the Prisoner has some scientific background. He won't join if the minds of the think tank have been erased, even to save ZAX.


BAJAR was to appear in Van Buren, the canceled Fallout 3 by Black Isle Studios. The brain-in-a-jar idea was later reused for Old World Blues with many of the scientist characters in the Think Tank sharing their background with BAJAR.
