Fisher was born and raised among the Amish, which are a group of traditionalist Christian communities. After the Great War, he began to lose his faith and no longer believed in the god he was raised to worship, as many church leaders saw their survival as vindication of their beliefs. Not wanting to be associated with such a mindset, Fisher used his Rumspringa, an Amish coming-of-age process, to leave the church. He put his faith in hard work and other human beings who could prove themselves instead.
After leaving, Fisher joined with Lev's gang before he met Meg's raiders, and his time with them convinced him that his faith was detrimental to his survival. He likes Lev's ruthless style of leadership more than Meg, believing that her "heart" is a risk. However, he knows that Lev would not hesitate to get rid of Lou, so he often sides with Meg to keep Lev in line and preserve his friendship with Lou. Fisher's and Lou's friendship is so close that Lou wishes Fisher to have his belongings after his death.
Despite his upbringing, he is highly skilled with technology. He is responsible for the thankless job of setting up and maintaining much of the Crater's infrastructure, but often complains due to the constant amount of work shoved on him by the other raiders. He was the one who created Weasel's vocal collar, adapted from the research of Eddie Harrison which he found in Monongah. He also refurbished an old suit of Brotherhood of Steel power armor into raider power armor.
Interactions with the player character
|This character is involved in quests.|
- Cheating Death - Fisher knows where Lou has gone, and the Vault Dweller must ask him to find out. With Charisma 8+, Strength 8+, or by having hacked his terminal (Hacking 3), he will answer directly, providing a tracking signal which points to the Carleton Mine. Otherwise, he will mislead the residents to Kogan at the Crater watchstation, after which he will tell the truth.
- From Russia With Lev - Fisher betrays Meg and joins Lev's gang along with Surge. He is found at Lev's hideout at the Poseidon Energy Plant South Expansion in full raider power armor and will attack the Vault Dweller.

A holotape called Apologies to Lou can be found, indicating his remorse towards Lou and revealing his feelings that Meg was a poor leader.
- "As long as you're not buttering me up to do something for you - hi."
- "So much work to do. And do I get any thanks? Well, I do. But I could use more."
- "I feel bad about misleading you. Once you bring Lou back, I hope bygones will be bygones."
- "I believe Faith is a weakness in this world. If you really want to survive, there's no room for turning the other cheek. I no longer believe in the God I was raised to worship. I put my faith in hard work and my loyalty in those that have proven themselves. It's just the mannerisms I can't seem to shake."
- "Lev gave us orders to kill anyone coming here from Crater. That includes you!"
- "I didn't want to do this, but you and Meg are forcing my hand!"
- Vault Dweller: "Are you a religious man, Fisher?"
Caleb Fisher: "Once upon a time. It's hard to shake what you're brought up to believe since birth, no matter how bad this world turns."
Resident: "How do you go from Amish to here?"
Caleb Fisher: "After the war, my faith... wavered. Anyone could understand that. But to some in my community, it vindicated them. They believed their survival meant they walked the true path. I couldn't be among that mind set, so I used Rumspringa as my chance to leave."
