Mike Tiller is a member of the Settlers in Appalachia.


Mike was meant to be helping record a weapon demonstration with the town watch,[1] ordered by Ward at the East Mountain lookout. However, he paid little attention to the demonstration, preferring to work on a terminal. When another settler asked him to get off the terminal and help with the recording, he went to lock the terminal and then grabbed a rocket launcher incorrectly, causing it to fire and kill the other four settlers.[2]

Upon realizing what he had done, he was mortified and fled. He decided to hide out of guilt, believing that the others would view him as a murderer.[3]

Behind the scenes

Carl McKevitt was a contributor to Mike Tiller's design with the main goal of creating a character that the player could decide to kill or not.[Non-game 1]


  1. Vault Dweller: "The Brotherhood doesn't 'make' any weaponry, nor sell them."
    Tad Chance: "Oh... Well. The stuff we got definitely has your logos on it. Some guys from the town watch took them out for testing a little earlier. I'm sure you can catch up with them, they normally practice at a small site they set up near the East Mountain Lookout, a bit North of here."
    Gloria Chance: "Oh that's right. Mike and them took the weapons out for a test drive. If you head over, I'm sure they'd let you take a look."
  2. Weapon demonstration
  3. Mike Tiller: "H-h-hold it right there. Don't come any closer!"
    Vault Dweller: "Okay, okay, let's just take a deep breath."
    Mike Tiller: "No, you don't understand. What I did, I... Oh, man... I'm Mike. Mike Tiller. Go to Foundation, tell them you found me dead. Because... I'm... I'm never leaving! I'm not going back, you can't make me! They'll never believe me... They'll think I'm a murderer!"
