Convivial Historian is a Protectron operating in Helvetia as part of the Fasnacht Day festivities.


Convivial Historian is one of the Protectrons which was reprogrammed to spice up Fasnacht Day celebrations in Helvetia.[1][2] It can be distinguished by its brown chassis and 1950s style glasses (when it is not wearing its Fasnacht mask).

When Fasnacht Day is being celebrated, it is one of the Protectron parade marchers which may be encountered. If it is required to march in the parade, it can be found in the town museum, the gray building near the gazebo in the park. It will request that the player character(s) bring 12 old Fasnacht steins to the Helvetia museum for analysis before it will march in the parade.

In 2102, the Convivial Historian wore the Fasnacht jester mask when marching in the parade. In 2103, the Protectron wears a random Fasnacht mask with an alternate color scheme.
