Brick's the name, and I call this fine looking roomsweeper Eugene.

Brick is the heavy weapons specialist in the Reilly's Rangers mercenary group in Fallout 3.


Born around 2253, the 24 year old Brick was hired by Reilly as a heavy weapons specialist. Together with her minigun, Eugene, the muscle-bound gunner[Non-game 1] is considered an outstanding asset for the Rangers, combining a zeal for destruction with reliability and calmness under fire. She lacks patience for mission planning and debriefings, but remains fiercely loyal to the group, and Reilly considers her to be the go-to person in case of problems. Brick's contract specifies 50 caps per mission, and her service record resulted in five merits and one demerit by the time of the ill-fated Vernon Square deployment.[1]

Brick gets along fine with most of the Rangers. She sees them as eggheads, with more skill in sciences and such, than combat, which is fine by her. She just points, shoots, and makes anything that gets in the Rangers' way die.[2] Donovan is the only exception to the rule: the two get into bitter fights and Reilly is annoyed by the constant need to intervene, before they go down to blows.[3] She also hates Talon Company mercenaries, and this leads to altercations. Sometimes, Reilly is able to hold Brick back and prevent a bloodbath, such as when a Talon spat on Brick's boots once.[4] When she is not present, though, Brick can easily escalate tensions to Eugene levels: at the beginning of the mapping project, the Rangers ran into Talon Company mercenaries at the Capitol Building, and a fight erupted. Reilly only realized what was happening when she heard Eugene spin up.[5]

Brick has a peculiar relationship with Eugene, or rather, Euegenes, as she has multiple miniguns sharing the same name.[6] She is extremely fond of its firepower, and considers no problem too great that a few hundred rounds of 5mm ammunition cannot solve.[7] She delights in the destruction Eugene brings, freely sharing it with anyone who needs help,[8] and is the only Ranger to love deployments to Vernon Square, as it provides plenty of targets to turn into a fine red mist together with Eugene.[9] She is not even particularly bothered by being stuck on the roof of the Statesman Hotel, since Eugene gets plenty of exercise.[10] She is aware that all fun has to end sometime and would really like to get off the roof.[11]

While Brick might be suffering from some form of personality disorder, it is equally possible that she simply enjoys the gore and destruction, and plays it up. If asked about whether she is "certifiably insane," she is quick to joke that she killed the last person who said that, and asks Eugene for an opinion.[12] Anyone expressing reservation is treated to gushing over the violence Brick and Eugene's partnership unleash: she finds targets, and it vaporizes them.[13]

This character is involved in quests.


  • Reilly's Rangers: Brick is one of Reilly's Rangers stuck on top of the Statesman Hotel.
    • One of the Eugenes is a quest reward, with the alternative being the Ranger battle armor. If the player chooses the armor, they can pickpocket Brick's own minigun or kill Brick for it. Of course, if she dies during the retreat from the hotel, her body can be looted for Eugene as well.
    • After the quest, she will offer to assist the player in combat whenever "they are in the neighborhood," but the Rangers do not leave the compound. She does mention that once the Lone Wanderer joins, Reilly is back to her old self and they are running ops again.[14][15]

Behind the scenes[]

The game guide gives Brick's age as 32,[Non-game 1] indicating she was originally eight years older. Her age is unambiguously given as 24 in the game, on Reilly's terminal.[1]

  2. The Lone Wanderer: "Any clue where I can find a Fission Battery?"
    Brick: "All I remember is mowing down Super Mutants with Eugene here. Ask the eggheads, they're runnin' the show. I just point and shoot... then stuff dies."

  4. The Lone Wanderer: "Have you had run-ins with them?"
    Reilly: "Yeah, we've crossed paths. Fortunately, we just stepped out of each others way. Brick almost turned it into a damn bloodbath when one of them spit on her boots, but I was able to hold her back."
    (Reilly's dialogue)

  6. Reilly: "(...) So, for your reward, what'll it be? The Ranger Battlearmor or one of Brick's Miniguns?"
    (Reilly's dialogue)
  7. Brick: "Did ya see me? Nothing good ole' Eugene and a few hundred rounds of ammo couldn't handle."
    (Brick's dialogue)
  8. Brick: "Goodbye. If you're ever in the neighborhood and need some help, just listen for Eugene's rat-a-tat-tat. Ha ha ha!"
    (Brick's dialogue)
  9. The Lone Wanderer: "What can you tell me about Vernon Square?"
    Brick: "The other guys hate mappin' this zone, but hey, I love it. I love turning the 'muties into a fine, red mist with my gun."
    (Brick's dialogue)
  10. The Lone Wanderer: "How have you guys survived up here?"
    Brick: "Skill baby, pure skill. And my big-ass gun!"
    (Brick's dialogue)
  11. Brick: "Brick's the name, and I call this fine looking roomsweeper Eugene. We've had a lot of fun together mowin' down Super Mutants, but I think it's time we get off this roof."
    (Brick's dialogue)
  12. The Lone Wanderer: "Wow, you're certifiably insane, huh?"
    Brick: "Last guy who said something like that to me took a long dirt nap. Catch my drift? Hahahaha! Oh, I loved watching you sweat there for a second. Damn right I'm crazy! Isn't that right, Eugene? Anyway, you look me up if you ever want to get into a fight. I'll be sure and bring the thunder. Ha ha ha!"
    (Brick's dialogue)
  13. The Lone Wanderer: "Yeah, Brick... You really, um, ventilated them..."
    Brick: "You bet your ass I did! Did you see that Super Mutant's head burst? Beautiful! Me and Eugene, we got a partnership. I find targets, and he vaporizes targets. It works out well. Anyway, you look me up if you ever want to get into a fight. I'll be sure and bring the thunder. Ha ha ha!"
    (Brick's dialogue)
  14. The Lone Wanderer: "What's been happening since you've been back?"
    Brick: "Now that you're part of the team, Reilly is her old self again. We've been vaporizing hostiles like there's no tomorrow!"
    (Brick's dialogue)
  15. The Lone Wanderer: "What's been happening since you've been back?"
    Brick: "Me and ole' Eugene have been a bit sad lately. No Super Mutants to mow down. I guess as soon as Reilly's ready, we can head back out into the ruins. I wish I knew what she was waiting for."
    (Brick's dialogue)
