We still don't know the extent we were compromised after the Switchboard disaster. Our numbers are perilously few.

Doctor Stanley Carrington[1] is the medic and the second-in-command of the Railroad in 2287.


Doctor Carrington provides health and medical services to the agents of the intelligence organization known as the Railroad.[2] He is also Desdemona's righthand man. However, he relates that this has minimal impact. The doctor is easily exasperated and irritated, though he claims this to be because of the Railroad's numerous setbacks and losses. He sometimes questions Desdemona's tendency to send agents on dangerous missions to gather intelligence when said intel is already more or less known.[3]

Back when the doctor was stationed at the organization's former headquarters, the Switchboard, located in Lexington, he managed to escape when it was stormed by Institute synths.[4] In the confusion of the attack, Carrington left behind a prototype of an unknown device, which one of the Railroad's main field operatives, Deacon was assigned to a mission to recover.[5]

  • Having Curie as the Sole Survivor's companion leads to the dialogue of her asking Carrington at what university he studied medicine, much to his exasperation. Further dialogue between the two includes inquiries regarding current publications about medicine.
  • When the Sole Survivor turns over the prototype rescued from the Switchboard during Tradecraft, they might be confronted by Carrington. The Sole Survivor may then ask him, "Is there someone you like?" Preston Garvey will dislike this question and interrupt them saying, "We're not here to make friends."

    (Stanley Carrington's dialogue)
  3. Stanley Carrington: "Word to the wise, be prepared to improvise. You may find your operational orders... lacking."
    Sole Survivor: " Is Desdemona really a problem, then?"
    Stanley Carrington: "Not so much that, as there are perhaps better solutions. When planning a mission a certain degree of clinical detachment can be invaluable."
    (Stanley Carrington's dialogue)
  4. Stanley Carrington: "Frankly, we're lucky there's a Railroad left at all. I don't remember a time our numbers have been so few. But the mission carries on."
