Don't forget to hand in your tests before you leave. You don't want to know what happens to people who 'fail' the G.O.A.T.

Mr. Edwin Brotch is a resident of Vault 101 and the vault's teacher in 2277.


Mister Brotch inherited the position of a schoolteacher from his father and grandfather. Since the day the Vault 101 residents entered the vault, there has been a Brotch as a schoolteacher. Mr. Brotch is concerned about carrying on that tradition, but with no children of his own, he is beginning to worry that he will be the last in line.[Non-canon 1][clarification needed] He is the man responsible for administering the G.O.A.T. exams.

Daily schedule

In the Lone Wanderer's youth, Edwin can be found in the classroom. During the Trouble on the Homefront quest, he can be found in the Vault 101 cell. If he is released, he will join the rebels in the vault's clinic.
