Now that's a story... The only reason I'm here is because of Elder Lyons. You see, I grew up in the Pitt. Don't suppose you've ever been there, huh? It's about 500 klicks to the northwest. Place is a nightmare -- three irradiated rivers coming together. People there were... not well. But the Brotherhood of Steel came down on the place with a righteous hammer. They called it 'The Scourge.'

Paladin Kodiak or Greg Bear[1] is a member of the Lyons' Pride, in 2277.

Background

As Kodiak grew up in the Pitt,[2][3] together with his two older brothers John and Grudd,[4] he never knew his parents.[5] He was rounded up with other non-mutated children by the Brotherhood of Steel during the Scourge,[6] and while his two older brothers were left behind due to being considered too savage,[4] Kodiak and the other children were brought to the Citadel by Elder Lyons to ultimately join the Brotherhood's ranks as Initiates.[7] He is the last living member of that group of children still stationed at the Citadel.[8]

Characteristics

Kodiak turned out to become the largest and strongest member of the Lyons' Pride, being as blunt and ferocious as a bear, excelling in close quarters combat with a power sledge.[Non-canon 1] He considers himself to be the "jack of all trades" within the unit, equally competent in recon, demolition and tactical assault.[9] Kodiak also holds a deep reverence for Elder Lyons,[10] going as far as viewing him as a father figure.[7]

Daily schedule

He can be found around the great hall in the A ring area of the Citadel.

  2. Lone Wanderer: "What made them so terrible?"
    Paladin Kodiak: "The rivers. Even after the war, they were still flowing, but irradiated, and filled with God knows what else. I saw things there I can't even begin to describe. I was only... what... eight years old when I left? Hell of a thing for a kid to go through."
    (Paladin Kodiak's dialogue)
  3. Lone Wanderer: "How did you end up in the Brotherhood?"
    Paladin Kodiak: "Now that's a story... The only reason I'm here is because of Elder Lyons. You see, I grew up in the Pitt. Don't suppose you've ever been there, huh?

  4. 4.0 4.1 Lone Wanderer: "How did you rebuild after the Scourge?"
    Ishmael Ashur: "It wasn't actually that tough. The Scourge had cleared out a lot of Trogs, so we had space to move in. The Brotherhood had looted a lot, but they left even more behind as "damaged goods." And you can rebuild a lot out of "damaged goods." For example, they took one survivor, a kid the called "Kodiak". But they left his big brothers behind, because they were too wild and mean. But as it turns out, the Bear Brothers were some of my finest soldiers. At least, until they went up against you."
    (Ishmael Ashur's dialogue)
  5. Lone Wanderer: "What happened to your parents?"
    Paladin Kodiak: "Hell if I know. I never knew them. I lived on the street and fought with rats for food."
    (Paladin Kodiak's dialogue)
  6. Lone Wanderer: "How did you escape?"
    Paladin Kodiak:"As they swept through, the Brotherhood policed up every non-mutie child they could find. Turns out, there weren't that many. Me and maybe twenty others. The younger we were, the less of a chance that we were mutated. It was ugly work, no doubt, but it had to be done. I'll never forget the sight of the Brotherhood of Steel breaching the breast of the mountain at dawn."
    (Paladin Kodiak's dialogue)
  7. 7.0 7.1 Lone Wanderer: "How did you end up back here?"
    Paladin Kodiak: "Elder Lyons brought us all back to the Citadel. He said it was the safest place he knew of. This place was still being converted. He put us in as Initiates and kept a watchful eye over us. He was tough, but he taught us to stay alive. The man is like a father to me."
    (Paladin Kodiak's dialogue)
  8. Lone Wanderer: "What happened to the other kids from the Pitt?"
    Paladin Kodiak: "All of 'em became Initiates. Most of them went on to become Brothers. A lot fell in action. I'm the only survivor of the Scourge of the Pitt still stationed at the Citadel."
    (Paladin Kodiak's dialogue)
  9. Lone Wanderer: "What's your combat specialization in Lyons' Pride?"
    Paladin Kodiak: "Hell, I do it all. Recon, demolition, tactical assault. Guess you could say I'm the Pride's jack of all trades."
    (Paladin Kodiak's dialogue)
  10. Lone Wanderer: "That's pretty amazing, Kodiak."
    Paladin Kodiak: "Nah. The amazing thing is Elder Lyons. He risked everything went in outmanned and outgunned. I'll never be able to thank him enough. So I do my best to serve the Brotherhood. I know that's what he really wants. In time, I'm sure you'll understand."
    (Paladin Kodiak's dialogue)

Non-canon

  1. Fallout 3 Official Game Guide Game of the Year Edition p.89: "Paladin Kodiak
    Paladin Kodiak (also known as Greg Bear) is the largest and strongest member of Lyons's Pride. He is actually considered the largest and strongest member of the Brotherhood of Steel in general. As the name implies, he is as gruff and vicious as a bear, and he excels in close combat with a Power Sledge. Paladin Kodiak owes his life to Elder Lyons, who rescued Kodiak as a child from a distant city known as "the Pitt." Because of this, Kodiak thinks of Elder Lyons as his father."
