Dr. Lector was experimenting on his "patients" by feeding them cocktails of drugs such as Buffout, Mentats, and Psycho. He was a man of science and few morals, referring to the death of one person as merely the death of an experiment, although he did miss the mental stimulus after the patient's passing from excess Mentats. He used the base's sentry bots to keep control of uncooperative buffed-out patients. Dr. Lector also worked with Skynet to develop the cybernetic brain before he was forced to evacuate the depot.
Dr. H. Lector is mentioned only in Fallout 2.
Behind the scenes
H. Lector is a reference to Hannibal Lecter.
