Bosco is a raider boss located inside D.B. Technical High School in 2287.

Background

Bosco is the leader of the raiders established inside the D.B. Technical High School, who at one time was affiliated with the trader Eleanor.[1] Together with Cleaver and Torque, he successfully raided the Shamrock Taphouse and struck a deal with its surviving inhabitants afterward, part of his ambitious plan to take over the downtown Boston area.[2] During a follow-up raid at Back Street Apparel, he was bitten into his hand by one of Torque's mongrels,[3] after which he began to experience temper control issues, which made him believe that the mongrel might have been carrying a disease.[4]

His mental health started to decline, as he begann to suspect that his gang members were poisoning the water sources around him, upon which he decided to take residence in the school's basement, in order to access its "safe water."[5] Drifting further into a delusional state, he started to hallucinate about a fictional "Beast" laying in wait, which he thought to be responsible for killing his men, leaving him trophies, and covering him in blood as he was sleeping.[6] Later on, some of his men finally found the head of the "Beast,"[7] which turned out to be the school mascot's bear head.
