Time travel will one day be possible and we might be able to prevent the disaster that ruined our world in the past. But wouldn't that . . . stop us from going back if it was fixed . . . oh, my head hurts.— a Scribe

Scribes are staff of the Brotherhood of Steel at Lost Hills in 2161.


The best and brightest of the Brotherhood, the Scribes dedicate their lives to researching pre-War, current and future technologies. Being more adept at intellectual prowess rather than combat skills, they rarely if ever leave the confines of Lost Hills. While they study technologies with a variety of applications, they primarily (if not solely) focus on the battlefield use of these technologies, with many other sciences such as psychology being rejected. This causes some friction among the Scribes as only a small minority study these 'softer sciences'.
