Damn fine work you did taking out those guns. Damn fine!

General Constantine Chase was a pre-War U.S. Army general, most notable for being the commanding officer of the Anchorage Reclamation, a military operation that repelled Chinese forces from Alaska in January of 2077. The Lone Wanderer encounters and receives orders from a computer-generated reconstruction of Chase during their run through the Anchorage Reclamation simulation in the year 2277.


A four-star general in charge of the military assault on Anchorage, Chase is gruff, determined and a touch over the top with the politics of the day. He is constantly wary of "those Commie Bastards!" and is overtly paranoid that they are up to all sorts of nefarious activities. The official Fallout 3 guide refers to him as a gallant leader, and that talking back to an officer of this rank is not likely to be tolerated.[1]

Born on November 16, 2027, Chase was a competent military officer, as evident by his successful completion of the Alaska campaign, but his personality was highly controversial and his sanity doubtful.[2] The general was responsible for commissioning the Liberty Prime project, in order to drive the Chinese out of Anchorage, ignoring reports from RobCo and General Atomics researchers that such a combat robot was simply not feasible.

He is also responsible for commissioning the making and distribution of the drug Psycho during the war to soldiers, with his pharmaceutical company "General Chase R&D." There were scandalous allegations concerning the company, however, as actions conducted by it led to a scandal. Soldiers under Chase's command were issued Psycho drugs during the Anchorage campaign to counter their wounds or mental trauma. The drugging of soldiers was considered inexcusable by the public.[3]

Furthermore, after January 2077, he became increasingly arrogant and self-absorbed, to the point of personally overseeing the VSS project responsible for creating the Anchorage simulation. Constantly making alterations and demands, the result was a simulation completely detached from what actually happened in Anchorage.[2]

Chase was also responsible for green lighting the unofficial implementation of a military Chinese invasion training protocol in Vault 112's Tranquility Lane simulation, at the request of Stanislaus Braun. (Officially, the request was denied.)[4]

According to the ribbons on the general's uniform in the simulation, he was the recipient of the Defense Distinguished Service Medal, Army Distinguished Service Cross, Army Distinguished Service Medal, Silver Star, Legion of Merit, Joint Service Commendation Medal, Army Commendation Medal, Antarctica Service Medal, Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal, Gold Lifesaving Medal, and Armed Forces Reserve Medal.

Branches of ServiceEdit

General Chase is best known for serving in the United States Army but also did some time in the Coast Guard as evidenced by his Gold Lifesaving Medal, which is a USCG award. The Army does not award the Gold Lifesaving Medal to their personnel. Not much else is known about Chase's service in the Coast Guard.

Investigation into simulated Holotapes reveals discrepancies between her simulated and real-life persona, as her records implicate General Chase in a scandal of drugging soldiers with Chems researched at Chase's pharmaceutical company."
