I am Jason Bright, the prophet of the Great Journey. All the ghouls you see here are members of my flock.

Jason Bright is the glowing one leader of the Bright Brotherhood ghouls at the REPCONN test site in 2281.

Background

A sentient glowing one ghoul, Jason leads a band of religious Brotherhood ghouls that want a better life away from the wasteland and bigoted humans. He hopes to use the rockets at REPCONN to fly on a Great Journey to a "sacred place" named the "Far Beyond" by the Bright Brotherhood, where they will live in peace. That is until they are attacked by invisible "demons."[1] The "demons" (nightkin) attacked the Brotherhood without warning and killed many of them. They were forced to move to the upper levels of the REPCONN test site.[2] After this, Jason tells the Courier that the "demons" shouted threats at the ghouls and said that they'd kill any ghoul that came down to the basement, but if they stayed where they were, the "demons" said that they would let them live in peace.[3] When asked about it, he will imply that the Courier was sent by the Bright Brotherhood deity to help them, and then he asks them to rid the "demons" from the basement of the REPCONN test site.[2] If the Courier accepts, this will start the Come Fly With Me quest. If he dies, the player character will fail the quest.

Quests

  • Come Fly With Me: Jason Bright asks the player character to deal with the "demons" in the basement of REPCONN and after that's dealt with sends the player character to Chris Haversam for the other part of the quest.
  • I Could Make You Care: If Veronica is present during the first time the player character speaks to Jason Bright, that will count towards the amount of conversations needed to trigger the quest.

Notes

  • Jason's voice is rather different from the other ghouls. Most ghouls speak in a deep, gravelly voice, while Jason speaks in an electronically resonating tone. It is not gravelly in any way, and the only thing that makes it different from a human voice is an artificial echo.
  • Unlike other glowing ones, one will not receive radiation from being near Jason.
  • Unlike normal glowing ones, Jason's skin is still relatively intact despite his condition. Only parts of him (such as his right shoulder and the left side of his skull), are bioluminescent.
  • Jason is very similar to the "Sun of Atom" from Fallout 3, as both are glowing ones that serve as the living symbol of a religion. Even when first meeting him, beams of light crack through the ceiling and make him look even more like a religious figure.
  • His suit is unique and cannot be obtained by reverse pickpocketing or upon his death.
  • If one comments on his name, he'll say that it was his name even before the war and takes it as a proof of destiny.[4]
  • If one kills him when in stealth mode, the Bright followers will still attack even if the attack was silenced. Also, they will say some different sentences, like "Jason was our leader!"
  • If Jason witnesses the Courier killing a feral ghoul, he will become hostile. This will also happen with all the other members of his "flock."
  • Jason does not wear a space suit even when getting ready for the launch.

References

  1. The Courier: "What's the "Great Journey"?"
    Jason Bright: "We wish to escape the barbarity of the wasteland, especially the violence and bigotry of its human inhabitants. The creator has promised to my flock a new land: a place of safety and healing... a paradise in the Far Beyond. Preparations for the Great Journey were nearly complete when the demons appeared."
    (Jason Bright's dialogue)
  2. 2.0 2.1 The Courier: "Tell me more about these "demons.""
    Jason Bright: "The demons appeared from nowhere... except it might be more accurate to say they never actually "appeared" at all. The demons are invisible. Where one of them stands, the most one sees is the air shimmering, like sunlight on water... They set upon us as we were on our way to worship one morning. We had just entered the basement. My flock fought bravely, and killed a few, but at such cost. Nearly half of us died or went missing. The rest of us retreated up here. One of the demons raved at us, but they have not tried to attack us since. Still, their demonic presence brought all progress towards the Great Journey to a standstill. But now you have come. Once again, the creator has sent a human to help us across a seemingly insurmountable obstacle."
    (Jason Bright's dialogue)
  3. The Courier: "You say one of the demons "raved" at you?"
    Jason Bright: "Yes, over the intercom. Threats of death should we step outside, guarantees of safety should we stay locked away. It went on for hours, and did not always make sense. But that was the first day only. Since then, silence. Will you drive away the demons, wanderer?"
    (Jason Bright's dialogue)
  4. The Courier: "Your last name is "Bright?" That's funny."
    Jason Bright: "An auspicious name, don't you think? It was mine before I became as I am now. Before the Great War, even. Truly does the creator author a destiny for each and every one of us..."
    (Jason Bright's dialogue)
  5. The Courier: "So, what, you'd rather just stay here? Never leaving that tank of... whatever that stuff is?"
    The Courier's brain: "Well, certainly there might be some things I miss about being ambulatory. We have seen some incredible sights, haven't we? Jason Bright and his followers launching into the vast unknown. HELIOS One coming back on-line. But still, given the tremendous, potentially life-ending peril that went along with those... yes. Yes, I'd rather stay here."
    (The Courier's brain's dialogue)
