Caleb escaped slavery eight years ago. He was successful while his fellow slaves John and Liesel were not. During his time as a slave, his master taught him the art of stone cutting. When he ran away from his master, he fell into a band of raiders. Once he heard about Hannibal Hamlin and the Temple of the Union however, he promptly left the raiders and joined Hannibal. He is the first of Hannibal's followers and uses the skills he learned from his master to restore any stone structure Hannibal asks of him. Caleb prefers to use melee weapons but knows his way around guns.[Non-canon 1][Non-canon 2]

Behind the scenes
- The Lone Wanderer: "So, you used to be a slave?"
Caleb Smith: "Long time ago. Eight years I think. Three of us escaped during the night. They caught Liesel and John. I made it into the wasteland. Raiders took me in at first. When I heard about this place, I knew I had to come here."

- Fallout 3 Official Game Guide Game of the Year Edition p.43: "Slaves (Abolitionists)
Slaves are not so much a faction as a collections of victims. No one is safe from slavery in the Wasteland. If you are weak or venerable, you may be taken as a slave.
There is a band of abolitionist slaves deep in the Wasteland. They are all escaped slaves, seeking to end slavery for all time. You can learn more about them in Miscellaneous Quest: Head of State."
