Caleb Smith is the stonemason of the Temple of the Union in 2277.

Background[edit | edit source]

Caleb was born in 2245 and was a slave until he escaped in 2269. He was captured along with John and Liesel when they tried to escape. 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.[1] 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.[2]

Relationships[edit | edit source]

Caleb is a member of the Temple of the Union and will defend it and the people in it with his life.[3]

Daily schedule[edit | edit source]

Caleb can always be found at the Temple of the Union. When the escaped slaves are moved to Lincoln Memorial he will be found there working to restore the memorial, as it is the new location of the Union.

    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."

    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."
