Ah, I can see the glint of Atom's Light in your eyes!

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


First officer of the Apostles of the Eternal Glow, this evangelical off-shoot of the Church of Atom has plans to "Sweeten..." the wasteland by beckoning their followers to bathe in "Light." Gerard is direct and friendly to a point, but is also keen to further the church's causes, no matter what the cost. If Brother Gerard is ran into after a nearby nuclear explosion, the now radioactive shell of Megaton, he will be seen greeting all he meets with his new and terminally signed appearance, as the ultimate sign on his path to radioactive righteousness. [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: 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 actionsEdit

  • 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.
