I agree that I might be skirting the line between what's ethical and what isn't, but in order to protect our troops, I'm willing to take that risk.

Senior Scribe Neriah, registration NR-490SS,[1] is a scientist serving on the Prydwen in 2287.


Senior Scribe Neriah is the head of the biological research department of the Brotherhood of Steel, responsible for dissecting the bodies of the fallen foes, with the purpose to analyze potential weaknesses or special traits within them that the faction could use to their advantage.[2] Recently, she is investigating how mole rats have developed a natural resistance to radiation, as part of a project to develop a special chemical compound that can be used to protect against most of the more heavily concentrated pockets of radiation in the Commonwealth, essentially an enhanced version of Rad-X.

Serving under the Order of the Quill, of the scribe branch of the Brotherhood, Neriah reports directly to Proctor Quinlan.
