Chicago was a city located in the pre-War state of Illinois.

BackgroundEdit

Before the Great War, detective Nick Valentine together with his fiance Jennifer Lands transferred from the Chicago Police to Boston to assist the Boston Police Department in Operation Winter's End.

Sometime after the defeat of the Master in 2162, the Brotherhood of Steel dispatched at least one airship east, to track down the remnants of the Unity super mutant threat. The airship crash landed near the ruins of Chicago.[1] The survivors initially organized themselves into a new detachment, but by 2254 they had gone rogue, cutting all contact with the larger Brotherhood.[2][3]

However, there are suggestions that the Enclave maintains outposts within the ruins.[4] There is also a West Coast super mutant population[5], that the Brotherhood fought or assimilated.[2] It is also where Tommy recovered ED-E, and after pleading with his father, brought it back to his mother's garage for repairs.[6]

AppearancesEdit

Behind the scenesEdit

    Brotherhood soldier (1): "I still can't believe I was posted to the Prydwen. I mean, look at her... she's one of a kind."
    Brotherhood soldier (2): "Actually, the Brotherhood of Steel had a whole fleet of these things at one time. They weren't as advanced as the Prydwen, mind you... but seeing them fill the sky must have been an impressive sight."
    Brotherhood soldier (1): "Are you kidding me? What happened to them?"
    Brotherhood soldier (2): "Not sure, really. Most of them were destroyed fighting Super Mutants or scuttled for parts. I think one of them crash landed somewhere in the Midwest. I heard that the wreckage is still there."
    Brotherhood soldier (1): "Wow... I had no idea."

    Lyons, 75, was already highly decorated when he set out from the order's West Coast headquarters, leading a party of soldiers on a mission to reestablish contact with the 'Eastern Brotherhood.' He discovered this abandoned Pentagon military complex. The presence of Super Mutants sent a chill up the collective spine of the Brotherhood; these weren't the children of the dreaded Master, nor were they the remnants of the band that fled east and were ultimately destroyed (or assimilated into the Brotherhood of Steel) in the Chicago area. No, this was a new breed of Super Mutant, one with a local origin. But where did they come from? What did they want? How were they reproducing? Elder Lyons was ordered to discover the source of this new Super Mutant infestation and wipe it from the face of the earth. Recent weeks have seen him galvanize his 'Pride' to thwart the remnants of the Enclave forces, and to provide drinking water to all."

  3. The Sole Survivor: "Did the Brotherhood ever build other airships?"
    Kells: "There were less advanced versions of this ship built on the West Coast a long time ago. Historical records about their current status are in dispute, but we're fairly certain that they were destroyed. In any event, I hope your tour of the Prydwen helped acclimate you to our way of life up here. I think you'll find that the more familiar you become with both her capabilities and her crew, the longer you'll survive as a member of the Brotherhood. You're dismissed, Knight/Paladin/Sentinel."

    My name is Whitley. I'm a researcher at Adams Air Force base. Until recently I was in charge of the Duraframe reinforcement project for the combat model Eyebots.
    Eyebot Duraframe Subject E is both the prototype, and the last functional model in this test group.
    I was prepared to make several significant upgrades to the machines.
    However, as the project was canceled and all Duraframe assets are being diverted to Hellfire Armor, I am sending this model to the Navarro outpost.
    If you are listening to this log from one of our Enclave Outposts in Chicago, give this unit whatever repairs it needs so it can continue to Navarro."

  5. The Lone Wanderer: "Care to share anything about the Super Mutants?"
    Elizabeth Jameson: "The Brotherhood has been battling Super Mutants for decades. First out West, then in Chicago. Now here. But this group of Super Mutants is different, somehow. Physically, yes, but mentally as well. If we knew where they came from, we'd know why."

    ED-E: Wistful beeping
    The Courier: "Where did this happen?"
    ED-E: Happy beeping
    The Courier: "Illinois? So that's where you got that plate. The other you, I mean."
    ED-E: Happy beeping
    The Courier: "What's a Chicago?"
    ED-E: Expository beeping
