Wow... that's... that's easy. Now at least I can shoot back at those mutant bastards. Are you ready?

Initiate Pek is an Initiate in the Brotherhood of Steel in the year 2277.


Initiate Pek was born in 2261 and is young (16), gung-ho, and inexperienced. He is in love with Sarah Lyons, who finds him secretly amusing but is professionally annoyed with his behavior, and has requested that he patrol a different part of the Metro area. Pek is always the one charging into danger first, celebrating victory prematurely, and possibly getting blown away by foes he never saw coming.[1]

During a training exercise in Falls Church, Pek, Paladin Hoss, and an unnamed paladin were separated by a super mutant attack. Pek became trapped in an office building while Hoss and a paladin were fighting nearby, and the Lone Wanderer must help them during the quest The Lost Initiate.

Notable quotesEdit

  • "You can mock me all you want, I don't care. Just get me out of here."
  • "Oh, thank God. Paladin Hoss sent you, didn't he? I knew he wouldn't leave me behind. When they attacked, we were cut off so quickly. My gun jammed and I never even got a shot off. I couldn't do anything but hide."
  • "Wow... that's... that's easy. Now at least I can shoot back at those mutant bastards. Are you ready?"

This can be solved by leaving the building, then using prid to select him and "moveto player" to teleport him out. Once outside, he will return to normal and thank the player character.[verified]
