Scribes are members of the Brotherhood of Steel in 2277.


Scribe Rothchild is the Head Scribe of the Brotherhood of Steel, and many lesser scribes appear in the Citadel.


The Capital Wasteland Brotherhood Scribes at the Citadel are separated into three Orders; the Order of the Sword, the Order of the Shield and the Order of the Quill. The Order of the Sword, led by Scribe Peabody, is responsible for weapons research (I.e. Plasma rifle). The Order of the Shield, led by Scribe Bowditch, is responsible for armor research (like Advanced Power Armor). The Order of the Quill, led by Scribe Jameson, is tasked with chronicling everything of a historical nature, including the recovery of intact pre-War books and the maintenance of the Brotherhoods' Scrolls and fallen brothers holotags.
