You see this eye-piece right here? I had to re-solder it in place, and it don't look as pretty as it needs to for inspection, I guess.

Knight Kyle[1] is a member of the Brotherhood of Steel stationed in Lost Hills in 2161.


Kyle is an armor specialist, with a focus on fixing and maintaining power armor stockpiles of the Brotherhood.[2] Compared to many other members, such as Rhombus, he is more laid back and has a critical view of many institutions of the Brotherhood. He openly criticizes the insane standards he is expected to adhere to, particularly Rhombus' refusal to clear an armor that has been fixed in the wrong way (eg. an eye piece that was soldered on).[3]

In spite of his irreverent attitude, he gives credit where it's due, and is particularly impressed with the Vault Dweller's mission to the Glow, or rather, the fact he survived it at all.[4][5]

This character is allied with the following faction(s).


  • Fix the broken T-51b power armor: Kyle has a dilemma; he has two sets of nearly completed powered armor, but each are just missing one piece. He needs a systolic motivator to complete them, but due to the outdated model of the armors, he has been denied an issuance for a new one. The Vault Dweller may either go upstairs to the equipment issuance manager, Michael, and ask for the small piece of machinery or steal one from Rhombus's quarters. If it is acquired, Kyle will hand the player character an instruction manual, telling the Vault Dweller that it is up to them to complete the repairs.

Kyle appears only in Fallout.


Kyle may refuse to speak to the player character again after asking them to find a systolic motivator, saying only "Get lost. I'm busy." It is currently unknown whether this is a bug or not. It may be a reaction to a negative reputation level. If this happens, it becomes impossible to repair the power armor.[verified]

    The Vault Dweller: "{106}{}{What do you do here?}"
    Kyle: "{113}{}{I fix stuff, run maintenance checks, that sort of crap.}"
    The Vault Dweller: "{115}{}{What kind of "stuff"?}"
    Kyle: "{117}{}{Power armor and anything else that needs fixin'.}"
    (Kyle's dialogue)
  3. The Vault Dweller: "{118}{}{How can I get my hands on some power armor?}"
    Kyle: "{119}{}{I'd give ya this power armor right here, but it's missing it's Systolic Motivator. It's useless without it.}"
    The Vault Dweller: "{120}{}{Where could someone get one of those?}"
    Kyle: "{122}{}{Well, they've got more than enough up in the supply room, but Michael and his damn forms say that this particular suit isn't up to specs. Damn bureaucrats.}"
    The Vault Dweller: "{123}{}{What do you mean, not up to specs?}"
    Kyle: "{125}{}{You see this eye-piece right here? I had to re-solder it in place, and it don't look as pretty as it needs to for inspection, I guess.}"
    The Vault Dweller: "{124}{}{So if I brought you a Systolic Motivator, would you fix it for me?}"
    Kyle: "{128}{}{Whoa, wait a minute there, fella, that would take a good coupla hours. I'd loan you a manual and my tools, but you'd hafta repair it yourself.}"
    The Vault Dweller: "{129}{}{Well, besides Michael, where else could I get one?}"
    Kyle: "{131}{}{Heh, well, Rhombus has a couple of 'em. I wouldn't ask him for one, though. Only "the Honored" are supposed to wear these here power suits. Besides, I think he has an unnatural attachment to them.}"

    Kyle: "{143}{}{Not General Maxson, his grandfather, Roger Maxson. I heard you brought back a disk that told what happened to the guys who rebelled against him and went down there to recover the lost technology.}"
    (Kyle's dialogue)
  5. The Vault Dweller: "{107}{}{What? Then why did they send me down there?}"
    Kyle: "{109}{}{Heh, heh. I guess they just wanted to get rid of ya, huh? Well, the jokes on them.}"
