Quaere Verum (Latin: Seek the truth) was an organization instituted and destroyed before the Great War.
Quaere Verum was a small pre-War organization, composed of three known members and one possible double agent, Aldwin Morley. The group's primary purpose appears to have been exposing "The Conspiracy," a supposed government coverup of the usage of alien technology as a basis for their own. Quaere Verum attempted to prove this by using a plasma pistol they believed was clearly inspired by alien technology.
Quaere Verum was swiftly eradicated by the Federal government not long after the MPLX Novasurge prototype plasma pistol was stolen from them by the group. It was generally considered to be a crackpot group for their belief in the existence of an alien conspiracy.

It is said that Alien technology was the basis of many of the Enclave's more exotic and impressive weaponry and robotics, and even toy manufacturers such as Wilson Automatoys weren't immune to these accusations. Recently, after the discovery of an Alien body in Fort Bannister, the shocking truth was revealed. The Aliens are not only real and alive, but they’re back. And they’re pissed."
