Scribe Haylen, registration HN-118FS, is a field scribe of the Brotherhood of Steel, living in the Cambridge Police Station in 2287.


Sometime after the Brotherhood-Enclave War, as the Brotherhood began recruiting throughout the Capital Wasteland, Haylen was accepted into the organization with Rhys sponsoring her induction and Danse sponsoring her training. She became a scribe, serving in the Brotherhood's Order of the Quill. By 2287, she, Danse, Rhys and four other soldiers had been assigned together to form Recon Squad Gladius, tasked with investigating the Commonwealth after the loss of Recon Squad Artemis three years prior.

The mission was difficult from the moment of their arrival; after establishing a stronghold at the Cambridge police station, Knights Worwick, Brach, Dawes, and Keane all perished from attacks by raiders, super mutants, and feral ghouls respectively. Worwick's death was especially hard on Haylen; she spent two days treating his wounds before Danse ordered her to put him out of his misery via an overdose of painkillers. Despite their losses, Haylen still carried out her assigned tasks, monitoring energy readings from an unknown source and modifying the police station's radio tower to eventually call in reinforcements.

She is first encountered during the quest Fire Support and is responsible for the emergency broadcast the Sole Survivor hears. Later on in the Brotherhood questline, she can also be found at Waypoint Echo along with a couple of Brotherhood troops during the quest Liberty Reprimed, and onboard the Prydwen during the quest Blind Betrayal. Afterwards, she will return to the police station and continue tasking the Sole Survivor with recovering pre-war technology.

  • Quartermastery: Travel to a random location and find a piece of technology for Haylen.
  • Blind Betrayal: Haylen is furious when Danse is accused of being a synth.

  • If siding against the Brotherhood of Steel, she can be found among the BoS forces defending the Boston Airport.

  • During Precipice of War, the Cambridge Police Station safe key can be looted from her corpse.
  • After completing the main quest with either the Brotherhood or the Minutemen, Haylen will ask the player if they intend to stay with the Brotherhood or not.
