For years, they wandered, always staying near the region, returning when they heard it was safe enough to return. They and their last remaining military working dog, Private Lucky, have been tracking and observing the Settlers since the Pitt. Now in Appalachia, the team agreed to meeting with the Vault Dweller at the ransacked bunker.
Duty Calls: Oliver Fields has agreed to meet with the Dweller in the ransacked bunker. At first, he is suspicious and dismissive of the plan to raid Vault 79 for its gold bullion, but after consulting with his team, agrees to send Sergeant Radcliff to assist in the heist.
↑Vault Dweller: Do you know if you all are sticking around Foundation now? Radcliff: Definitely. We all need a vacation... or just retirement. Fields needs retirement, for sure. He might not look as old as he is, but that's just all the preservatives in the junk food we've been living off of.
↑Vault Dweller: "How did you end up here?" Oliver Fields: "Thompson, Radcliff and I were all part of the team at Fort Knox that moved the gold here. The vault shut before we could get in though. We wandered the wasteland, always staying nearby. Once we heard it was safe, we came here. Damn glad we did too."
↑Vault Dweller: "What brought you here?" Oliver Fields: "We were given a mission at the end of the war that brought us down this way. Then we ran into the Foundation crew, north of here. They seemed like good folks, but we still had our mission to fulfill ... so we shadowed them for a while until that danger was over. No sense in putting them in danger, y'know? Seems like those days are finally done, though. No more missions. Just retirement. Bout damn time."
↑Paige: I had to reach out to some... specialists who've been shadowing us since the Pitt. They've all agreed to meet, but they want to talk to you first.
