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.


It provides a damage resistance of 3 and cannot be repaired (except by merchants).


The robes can be found on Elder Lyons in the Citadel. To obtain it, it must be reverse-pickpocketed from him, using a set of armor with higher DR.
