You weren't there. At the Switchboard. One day the Institute's gonna kill us all, I tell ya.

The Caretaker is a Railroad agent operating within the Commonwealth in 2287.

BackgroundEdit

An agent of the Railroad, he appears at whichever settlement becomes the Mercer Safehouse upon completion of the quest. He is very jumpy and appears to have PTSD from the Switchboard incident[1] when the Institute laid siege to the Railroad's former headquarters. Desdemona expresses hope that running Mercer Safehouse along with the Sole Survivor will help him get back on track after the incident.[2]

NotesEdit

  • He does not count as a settler and cannot be assigned to tasks.
  • He will not become hostile if the player character turns hostile to the Railroad.
  • If the Railroad is destroyed, he'll vanish from the Mercer Safehouse and later can be found in a random encounter, where he's about to be executed by a raider. He won't be hostile to the player character if he's saved and will speak his usual lines instead.

AppearancesEdit

The Caretaker appears only in Fallout 4.
