The Free Radicals are a faction in Appalachia in 2103.

Background[edit | edit source]

A band of ex-cons hailing from Columbia Commonwealth at the Western Maryland Correctional Facility with their leader, Roper, being the former head guard of the prison,[1] the Free Radicals are a raider group holed up in the old WV Lumber Co. building. Once inhabited by a garrison of super mutants, the Free Radicals managed to clear them out and establish a new base of operations in Appalachia.

Though weak at hunting and farming, they have found a solution in extorting settlements and businesses, such as Daniel's group, for food in exchange for protection. They are also particularly interested in "The Treasure of Appalachia," and have men searching for it 24/7.

They have been a thorn in the side of Duchess, who enlists the Vault Dweller to help shut down their interference with her business.
