No, it's full of Atom's Light. It's a tragedy that not everyone is prepared to accept Enlightenment, but, such are the ways of the divine.

Brother Gerard is the gatekeeper for the Holy Light Monastery in 2277.

Background

Officially the first officer of the Apostles of the Holy Light, an evangelical off-shoot of the Church of the Children of Atom, Gerard is direct and friendly to a point, but is willing to do anything to further the causes of his religion.[1] He acts as the gatekeeper to the Holy Light Monastery in Springvale, and gives out holy water (which is in truth, irradiated Aqua Pura) to travelers passing by.

Holy Water

Quests

Holy Water: Brother Gerard holds the monastery key, which opens the trapdoor leading into the Holy Light Monastery, and must be dealt with via diplomacy or force in order to enter.

Effects of player's actions

  • If Megaton is blown up after the events of Take it Back!, Gerard appears in front of Megaton ruins with Mother Curie III, both of whom are being transformed into ghouls by the massive radiation spike. While Curie is now a hostile feral ghoul reaver, Gerard is seen to currently be a ghoul with normal cognitive functions, and will remain near the ruins to pray to Atom.
  • If the Lone Wanderer has sabotaged Project Purity with President Eden's modified F.E.V., there will be a couple new dialogue options available when speaking with Brother Gerard. Gerard can be told that one can relate to "Tainting water under the guise of helping humanity," or express panic at the realization that they have just drunk F.E.V.-infected Aqua Pura.

    First officer of the Apostles of the Eternal Glow, this evangelical off-shoot of the Church of the Atom has plans to sweep the Wasteland by beckoning their followers to bathe in "light." Gerard is direct and friendly to a point, but keen to further the Church's causes no matter what the cost. If you run into Brother Gerard after a nearby nuclear explosion, he greets his new and terminally singed appearance as the ultimate sign on his path to radioactive righteousness."
