Remember: One shot. One kill.

Knight Captain Dusk is a female Brotherhood of Steel member located in the Citadel's A Ring in 2277.


Dusk is the Pride's sniper and considered the best sharpshooter in all the Brotherhood. She spends most of her time up in the inner bailey practicing at the rifle range.[1]


Dusk is a member of the Lyons' Pride. She has a fairly hostile rivalry with Knight Captain Colvin, who is the Pride's other sniper, mainly because she perceives him as sexist. This feeling may extend to the wider Brotherhood, as when the Lone Wanderer says, "The competition must be stiff around here," she will reply, "Damn right it is. Last time I checked, it wasn't called the 'Sisterhood of Steel.' Hell, even Sarah has to prove herself to the knuckle draggers."

Other interactionsEdit

  • It is possible to taunt her into threatening the player character. However, when the player character meets her at the area she told them to, "in the den after lights out," nothing happens.
  • Although the player character can taunt her about being a better shot, during the quest Take it Back! she can be seen shooting across the entire span of the Potomac River, a nigh-impossible feat for the player character to accomplish.
  • A certain conversation path will reveal that her true name is "Dawn" and becomes defensive over the obvious irony.


Notable quotesEdit


Knight Captain Dusk appears only in Fallout 3.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • Her quote "Remember: One shot. One kill." is a phrase coined by snipers around the world.
  • Her quote "Put any mutie bastard within one mile of me and my rifle and, well... pack it up troops. Fight's over." is a reference to Private Jackson from the movie Saving Private Ryan.
  • She will express confidence in her ability to fight the Enclave, saying "I can't wait to see if one of those helmets can stop a hollow point round at 100 yards. I'm thinking... not." However, hollow point rounds are designed to expand on impact, therefore making penetration of such helmets indeed unlikely.
