Liam Binet (aka Patriot) is a scientist working for The Institute in 2281. Unbeknownst to him, Binet serves as the primary link between the operatives of the clandestine organization known as the Railroad and the synths they seek to free.

Background

Without the knowledge of his colleagues, this young mind utilizes his position to shepherd gen-3 synth through weak points in his employer's HQ, out to the surface, with hopes that someone will answer his message and escort these fugitives to safety, away from the wrath of coursers and synth reclamation squads. Mr. Binet eventually becomes aware of the fact that he is instrumental to the success of the Railroad in the Commonwealth.

In 2281, he, under the codename "Patriot," establishes communication with the outside world. An individual named Tinker Tom takes the responsibility of maintaining contact with the party on the other end of the line. Patriot was pressed into service as an informant on gen-3 synths being forwarded out of the Institute. He uses his position as a scientist to help androids escape into the surface through holes in the security of the organization.

Liam Binet has proven vital to the success of the Railroad's cause in the region, yet he has been kept in the dark about his allegiance to the organization in order to prevent his position from being compromised. For this reason, he will act surprised when the revelation comes around that he has been helping the Railroad free synths.
