Recon Squad Gladius[1] is a squad of soldiers sent by the Brotherhood of Steel to search for valuable technology and documents in the Commonwealth in 2287.[2]

Background

Following the loss of Recon Squad Artemis, Recon Squad Gladius was formed, under the command of Paladin Danse, to investigate the Commonwealth.[3] After several months of travel, the team of seven arrived in the region and was immediately attacked by raiders, who disabled Knight Keane's power armor and destroyed some of their supplies.[4]

Following this attack, the squad made its way to Cambridge and chose to use the local police station as their base of operations, due to the site's strong structure, abundance of supplies and ammunition,[5] and a long range communication antenna; however, this antenna would be damaged in a super mutant attack before it could be used.[6] After fortifying the position, the group located and attempted to attack the Corvega assembly plant in nearby Lexington. The attack was a failure. After being hit with gunfire, Danse was forced to call a retreat; Knight Brach was killed after stepping on a landmine, and Knight Worwick was mortally wounded,[7] dying two days later.[8]

Following this failure, the squad attempted to resupply by investigating Boston Airport and Fort Strong, where they were surprised by super mutants and Knight-Sergeant Dawes was killed.[9] Afterwards, Haylen detected odd energy readings,[10] later determined to be coming from the Institute.[11] Wishing to report this to the main chapter, Haylen began attempts to fully repair the police station's antenna, but was unable to with the parts available.[6]

Later, the police station came under assault by large numbers of feral ghouls.[12] While Haylen used the communication gear to send out a short range distress call,[1] the squad attempted to fight off the ghouls, resulting in the death of Knight Keane.[13]

Over the last seven years, two other teams were sent here by the Brotherhood to gather technology. The first team's mission was a huge success. They came back with crates full of pre-war artifacts and historical documents. The second wasn't so fortunate. Shortly after they arrived, we lost contact with them and they haven't been heard from since. As far as my team goes, we've lost four good men to this godforsaken wasteland. We've been a target from the moment we arrived. But despite our setbacks, I don't intend to give up and head home... or end up missing."
