Unlike some people around here, I stuck with Doctor Li through it all. I was the last one to leave when we finally gave up. Now your daddy shows up out of the blue, and suddenly I have to drop everything to come back and help pick up the pieces.

Daniel Agincourt is an engineer working on Project Purity in 2277.

Background

Daniel is a rather rude, prideful, and standoffish, person.[1][2][3][4][5] He is also an extremely loyal and competent engineer, preferring to focus most of his energy on his work rather than the fanciful plans and adventures of others.[6] When Project Purity was abandoned he was the last one to leave the premises, afterward he would follow Doctor Madison Li to Rivet City and would continue to work with her for years. Since the abandonment of the project he has had distain for both James and the Lone Wanderer, who he views as the cause for the project's indefinite hiatus. He and Alex Dargon were out in the field when they got the call to return.[7] Almost twenty years later, after James returns to his former colleagues, Daniel follows Dr. Li back to the project.[8][9][10][11] Although annoyed that he has to work with people he blames for his past failure, he will swallow his pride to help the cause,[6][12] and guide the Lone Wanderer through repairing the facility.[13][14][15][16]

When the Enclave seizes the project, he and the rest of the team would make their escape through the Taft Tunnel. Initially, he will assume that James was somehow responsible for the Enclave seizing their facility and killing his coworkers. Once he learns of James' passing, he will be very remorseful and apologize for his behavior.[17][18] (Should the Lone Wanderer not accept his apology, forcefully, he will be intimidated and try to save face and look tough.)[19] While they regroup and make their way through the tunnel, he will offer to help fight alongside the Lone Wanderer, should they arm him with a handgun.[20] Although a capable engineer, he is not a capable fighter.[6]

Once they were safe at the opposite side of the Potomac River, they would make their way to The Citadel where they would join Lyons' Brotherhood's efforts at restoring the project. After the Brotherhood's successful capture and restarting of the project, Dr. Li would finally have had enough, and left to travel to the Commonwealth to start her life anew. Daniel, after having stuck by Dr. Li for two decades, would be hurt that she would just up and leave everything behind.[21]

Two weeks later, after the Lone Wanderer awakens from their coma, he can be found continuing his work at the project. Although he now claims that he truly runs the place behind the scenes, and that the Brotherhood scribes aren't up to the tasks at hand. Although he claims that his boss, Scribe Bigsley, would disagree,[22] he would in fact probably agree.[23]

    This rather rude and standoffish young engineer is hard at work on Project Purity, and has no time for young adventurers with fancy plans. Should Project Purity succeed, he becomes much more reverential toward you, swallowing his pride for the good of the cause. He even offers to take a weapon you aren't using and fight with you. Alas, you'll soon find out his skills are purely based in engineering and not combat."

  7. The Lone Wanderer: "What's your story?"
    Alex Dargon: "Who, me? Oh, nothing special. I grew up in Rivet City, and was always interested in what the scientists were doing there. Doctor Li took me under her wing, and taught me everything I know. Dan and I were out in the field when we got the call to come back."
    (Alex Dargon's dialogue)

    (Daniel Agincourt's dialogue)
  11. The Lone Wanderer: "Do you think Project Purity will ever work again?"
    Daniel Agincourt: "The hell do you care? You showed up here what, five minutes ago, and now you're strutting around like you own the place? You shouldn't even be here. Why don't you go do whatever it is you're supposed to be doing and leave me alone."
    (Daniel Agincourt's dialogue)
  12. The Lone Wanderer: "Anything I should know about this place?"
    Daniel Agincourt: "Besides the fact that you shouldn't be here? Don't touch anything you're not told to. There's enough to do around here without having to clean up after you."
    (Daniel Agincourt's dialogue)
  13. The Lone Wanderer: "Where can I find the fuse box?"
    Daniel Agincourt: "Head back downstairs. The one you're looking for is underneath the mainframe room, I think."

    (Daniel Agincourt's dialogue)
  15. The Lone Wanderer: "Where are the flood control pumps?"
    Daniel Agincourt: "Dad's got you doing the dirty work, huh? Well, good for you. Doesn't hurt to get your hands dirty. You'll find the pumps down in the sub-basement. It's one level below where we are now. Just look for the big switch on the wall. Throw that, and the pumps'll fire right up."
    (Daniel Agincourt's dialogue)
  16. The Lone Wanderer: "I have to go now."

    (Daniel Agincourt's dialogue)
  18. Daniel Agincourt: "Listen, thanks for getting us through that. I'm not stupid; I know we wouldn't have made it without you. I'm sorry about your dad, and I'm sorry I've acted like an ass."

    Daniel Agincourt: "Great. If there's anything I can do for you, let me know."
    (Daniel Agincourt's dialogue)
  19. Daniel Agincourt: "I better not ever find out that you or your father had something to do with this. If I even think you sold us out..."

    (Daniel Agincourt's dialogue)

    Daniel Agincourt: "Okay. If you find one, let me know."
    (Daniel Agincourt's dialogue)
  21. The Lone Wanderer: "Where's Doctor Li?"
    Daniel Agincourt: "You haven't heard? I guess I shouldn't be surprised. She basically folded. After the purifier was started, she decided she'd had enough, and headed up north. Said she was looking for the Commonwealth. Like she'd ever make it on her own. Tell you what. You run into her, you tell her Daniel sends his regards."
    (Daniel Agincourt's dialogue)
  22. The Lone Wanderer: "What are you doing here?"
    Daniel Agincourt: "What's it look like? I'm doing my work, same as I've always done. These Brotherhood "scribes" wouldn't know what to do with half the equipment here if their lives depended on it. I'm basically running this place from behind the scenes, no matter what Bigsley tells you."
    (Daniel Agincourt's dialogue)
  23. See Scribe Bigsley's page for references.
  24. The Lone Wanderer: "I've got a .32 caliber pistol."

    (Daniel Agincourt's dialogue)

    Daniel Agincourt: "I'm not sure the silencer will do me much good, but I'll take it. Thanks."
    (Daniel Agincourt's dialogue)
  27. The Lone Wanderer: "How about a Chinese Pistol?"
    Daniel Agincourt: "Hmm, okay. Never used one of these before, but I can probably figure it out."
