Solomon Hardy is an initiate and medic in the Brotherhood of Steel, as well as a potential lite ally and vendor in Appalachia in 2103. He may only be obtained as an ally during Season 3: The Scribe of Avalon.


Solomon is originally from Detroit,[1] coming from a long line of doctors, including both of his parents. Though he was interested in continuing that tradition, he struggled in school. Accordingly, he joined the United States Army after graduating high school as he felt that it offered the opportunity to make a difference. From Detroit, the Army helped him travel all over and experience new places.

By the time the bombs dropped, Solomon had resumed his education and was in his final year of medical school, far from home. He traveled from place to place after the war, until he finally crossed paths with Paladin Rahmani's First Expeditionary Force. Seeing the opportunity to continue to help others and having formed a close relationship with Rahmani herself, Solomon eagerly joined the cause as a medic. Though he strongly agrees with Rahmani's leadership style, he is uncomfortable with the overbearing leadership style of the California chapter of the Brotherhood of Steel.

  1. Vault Dweller: "Where are you from?"
    Solomon Hardy: "My family goes back generations in Detroit, but my path has led me all over. I can thank the Army for that one. When the bombs hit, I was about a year from getting my M.D. at a university well away from home. I traveled all around after that. Before bumping into Paladin Rahmani's group, that is."
