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.
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.

- The chalkboard in the Vault 101 classroom says "Brotch the crotch!"
- It is evident that Brotch dislikes Butch DeLoria due to Butch's delinquent nature, as Brotch states he wishes to savor the moment before issuing Butch with the profession of a hairdresser.
- Brotch is known as a difficult grader, as evidenced by James' enthusiastic response to "anything is possible! Even an A from Mr. Brotch!"
- Brotch's character model in Trouble on the Homefront looks drastically older than his Future Imperfect counterpart.
- "Well, now that everyone has managed to find the classroom, we can finally get started."
- "Ha. Closer to reality than you might think. Listen, I was just as obnoxious at your age. I didn't take the G.O.A.T. seriously and look where I ended up. If you don't like the results, I can make your G.O.A.T. come out any way you want. Just let me know. Just between you and me? The whole test is a joke."
- "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."
- "No, Mister DeLoria, that is not correct. Tell me. Are you really that stupid?"
Edwin Brotch appears only in Fallout 3.
