Other interactions

If the Sole Survivor fast travels away and back to Diamond City once, they will encounter Kyle, Riley's brother, holding Riley at gunpoint, accusing Riley of being a synth. Either the Sole Survivor or a Diamond City security officer intervenes and saves Riley from being shot.



  • The city does not become hostile if the player character intervenes by killing Kyle. If Riley is attacked, however, Kyle is immediately killed and the city becomes hostile.
  • Riley does not carry any Institute items nor does he drop a synth component upon death, indicating that he is indeed human, not a synth.
  • Following the resolution of the event, one can talk to the Diamond City security officer and pass a Charisma check.
  • If Riley survives his encounter with Kyle, he will eventually disappear from the game.


Riley appears only in Fallout 4.
