The Free Radicals are a band of ex-cons hailing from the Western Maryland Correctional Facility. Roper, the former head guard of the prison freed, them and become their leader. Coming from Maryland, they reached Appalachia looking for the treasure that had been brodcasted on the radio. Looking for a place to stay, the group set their eyes on the WV Lumber Co. facility in the shores of the Ohio River, on the northwestern corner of the region. The area was once inhabited by a garrison of super mutants, but the Free Radicals managed to clear them out and establish a new base of operations in Appalachia, throwing the mutant bodies into the river or burning them up. Ever since they have heavily fortified the lumber mill. They also have a good number of customized vehicles, including a limousine owned by Roper, a Pick-R-Up, a truck, several construction vehicles, and a fishing boat.
Though weak at hunting and farming, they have found a solution in extorting settlements and businesses, such as Daniel's group in Anchor farm, for food in exchange for protection. They are also particularly interested in "The Treasure of Appalachia," and have men searching for it 24/7.
