It's a slave labor camp run by a group called the Regulators, but they tell everyone it's a "town". They come here and take our people to work them until they die. Then they come and take more of us.Razor

Led by Caleb, the Regulators are a vicious gang that serves as the "police force" of Adytum in Southern California.

Background[edit | edit source]

Nominally under the authority of Adytum's mayor, Jon Zimmerman, they, in fact, manipulate Zimmerman and control Adytum's affairs, ruling harshly, expropriating a good part of Adytum's industrial wealth for themselves, and enforcing forced labor on Adytum's citizens.

To legitimize their authority, they have claimed that the Blades, a survivalist group to the north, are a threat, and frame them for crimes, such as the murder of Jon Zimmerman's son, Jason Zimmerman. The Regulators are part of the group that left the demonstration Vault in southern Los Angeles and founded Adytum.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

These Regulators appear in Fallout and are mentioned in the Fallout Bible. They are not related to the Capital Wasteland Regulators in Fallout 3.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

In the initial design of Adytum, the Regulators were the police force of the town, tasked with keeping the town safe from outside gangs such as the nearby Blades. Leonard Boyarsky felt that the motif of a town besieged by gangsters had been overdone, and suggested rewriting the design to flip the stereotype, making the nearby gangs fairly passive while putting the town under the heel of an authoritarian and draconian "police" force.[1]
