For the faction in the canceled Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel 2, see Cyphers.
Mini-FOT LogoThe following is based on Fallout Tactics and some details might contradict canon.
Fuck! They see us. Well, I'm not going to die for this.

Cypher is the Brotherhood of Steel's spy in the raider camp of Freeport in 2197.


Cypher isn't a member of the Brotherhood, but he is sponsored by them in exchange for information. Cypher is a greasy, shifty-eye looking character who fits in well with any bandit or raider camp. He has a knack for blending into the crowd as long as they are bloodthirsty marauders. Taking the average wastelander into account, Cypher is practically invisible.

Notable quotesEdit

  • "Fuck! They see us. Well, I'm not going to die for this."
  • "Where the fuck did you come from? ALARM! ALARM! Intruders!"
  • "That was too close. I thought I was going to have to cap your ass, since you almost blew my cover. Well, anyway, as long as I get paid, I can party with full afterburners know what I mean?"


Cypher appears only in Fallout Tactics.

Behind the scenesEdit

It seems likely Cypher is a reference to his namesake in the first Matrix movie - (Lu-)Cypher is a spy and a traitor working for the Agents to bring down the Matrix hackers, and almost succeeds.
