Hijack is a raider from the Crater in 2103.


Before the vault dwellers are about burrow into Vault 79, Hijack kidnaps Penelope Hornwright and holds her for ransom in the Cave section of Hornwright Industrial Headquarters. Furthermore, he and his gang use furniture to damage the Motherlode's intelligence module.
