Quinlan, a senior officer almost always accompanied by his pet cat Emmett, is responsible for keeping track of all recovered technology, information and technical documentation in the Brotherhood of Steel. He regularly sends out research patrols to collect technology and knowledge from various pre-War sites throughout the Commonwealth. Having an obsession with the Grognak the Barbarian comic book series, Quinlan often has his scribes collect rare editions for him out in the field.
