For the robe that was cut from Fallout Shelter, see Elder Lyon's robe.

Elder Lyons' robe is a unique piece of clothing in Fallout 3, worn by Elder Lyons of the Brotherhood of Steel. It resembles a scribe's robes, except its color, having a dark gray-blue tone.


A variant of the classic blue elder robes, this one is a triple-layered outfit. The base is a black, reinforced jumpsuit with combat boots, with a loose beige robe and high collar worn underneath, reinforced with metal components like the recon armor. A blue overcoat is worn on top, providing additional protection from the elements, with an utility belt fitted with various devices and tools, depending on the elder's preference.[1]


A cosmetic item, with a Damage Resistance of 3. The armor is not intended to be obtained in normal gameplay, as it does not have a unique icon (uses the Vault 101 jumpsuit's) or a female version of the armor. If a female character equips it, they will appear with no right hand and wear the Vault 101 jumpsuit. Finally, the large sleeves will clip and cover the Pip-Boy screen, making it impossible to use. Hotkeying the armor first is a good way to avoid problems.


Worn by Elder Owyn Lyons at the Citadel. They can only be obtained by planting an armor with a higher Damage Resistance on him. It's possible to obtain two copies, by stealing one, then finishing the game and beginning Broken Steel.


When dropped, it is identical to a Vault 101 jumpsuit in appearance.
