You'd better believe it. I haven't seen a suit like this in a long time. And what would you like for this little surprise?

Protector Henry Casdin is the leader of the Brotherhood of Steel Outcasts in the Capital Wasteland in 2277.

Background[edit | edit source]

Splitting from Elder Lyons and the rest of the Brotherhood of Steel, Casdin and his fellow soldiers were of the opinion that Lyons had "gone native," concerning himself with the troubles of the locals instead of the "greater" mission: the acquisition of technology. Lyons has not even bothered to get his giant robot working, let alone continue the search for technology. In Casdin's eyes, the Outcasts are the true Brotherhood of Steel, carrying on the missions of the main West Coast contingent.[1]

According to Elder Owyn Lyons, he was one of the best fighters in the Brotherhood of Steel before he took other Brotherhood members and formed the Outcasts in order to continue the original mission.

If asked about the Outcasts, he will comment on how he fought side by side with Elder Lyons in the Scourge of The Pitt. He recalls how the Brotherhood was forced to watch over small towns instead of gathering technology. This ultimately led to the split of the Brotherhood and Protector Casdin becoming the Outcast leader.

Daily schedule[edit | edit source]

Protector Casdin can be found standing at the entrance to Fort Independence, the Brotherhood Outcasts headquarters. He holds one of several keys to Fort Independence.

Quests[edit | edit source]

Effects of player's actions[edit | edit source]

  • If one possesses Outcast power armor when encountering Protector Casdin for the first time, he will confiscate it, even if the Wanderer is wearing it. One can safely wear Linden's Outcast power armor around him, though.
    • He will no longer confiscate the Outcast power armor once the Lone Wanderer become a friend of the Outcasts by doing his repeatable quest.
  • Upon first meeting Protector Casdin, if the player character tells him that they are in the Brotherhood of Steel, it will turn him and all nearby Outcasts hostile.
  • Casdin automatically repairs any items one gives him to 100% condition.
  • Casdin will automatically equip any item given to him if it is better than his current equipment; this applies to armor as well as weapons.
    • After a patch, he would no longer unequip his Outcast power armor since the new script forbid him to remove faction-related apparel. He would, however, still replace his weapon and helmet if there is a better one in his inventory. Making it possible to for him to ironically wearing an Enclave power armor helmet.
  • If the player character kills Protector Casdin they will lose Karma, even if they had already accepted the quest he gives them. Additionally, the nearby Outcasts will turn hostile.

Inventory[edit | edit source]

*Henry will replace his armor with a set of Enclave power armor but will replace that armor with the Tesla armor but not the helmet, when trading the armor for supplies in the unmarked quest, The Outcast Collection Agent. He will trade his Outcast power armor for normal power armor.

Notable quotes[edit | edit source]

  • "We were proud to leave him, so we kept the name "Outcasts" and wear it with pride. A big "fuck you" to the old man."
  • "Oh, he used to be as tough as the rest of us. Wasn't so long ago, we fought side-by-side to Scourge the Pitt. But somewhere, he went soft. Stopped looking at the big picture, and started trying to save every tribal and illiterate community he found. When he had us helping those savages instead of recovering tech that could help us all, that's when we objected and became Outcasts."
  • "You'd better believe it. I haven't seen a suit like this in a long time. And what would you like for this little surprise?"

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Henry Casdin appears only in Fallout 3.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

Protector Casdin's field report is recorded by a different voice actor than Casdin's in-game voice. However, the field report mentions requests for reinforcements that are denied. As Casdin is the leader of the Outcasts, it does not make sense that he would have a superior that could deny reinforcements. Considering the voice discrepancy and this otherwise illogical request, it is possible that the field report was recorded by another member of the Outcasts on Casdin's behalf. Defender Rockfowl's field report, similarly, is recorded by a different voice actor.
