Knight Astlin. She was in my company, years ago. Best marksman I ever saw.Paladin Danse

Tara Astlin, serial number 3431, is a dead Brotherhood of Steel knight in 2287.


Astlin and her colleagues were members of the Brotherhood of Steel's Recon Squad Artemis, the second of three squads deployed to The Commonwealth to look for new technology.[1] Shortly after arriving in the region, the team was attacked by unknown assailants and four of its knights were killed, leaving only Astlin, Scribe Faris and their leader, Paladin Brandis, alive.[2] The three retreated to the nearby National Guard training yard. Some time later, Brandis and Faris left to go to the Revere satellite array, leaving Astlin to secure the training yard. It was during this time that the location was overrun by feral ghouls. She barricaded herself on the ground floor of the recruitment center and activated her distress beacon, but after three hours nobody responded and the ghouls broke in and killed her.[3]

Should Paladin Danse be present when the Sole Survivor finds Astlin's corpse, he will reveal that she was in his squad years ago and that she was the best marksman he'd ever seen.[4]

  1. Paladin Danse: "It might surprise you to learn that my recon team isn't the first to visit the Commonwealth. Over the last seven years, two other teams were sent here by the Brotherhood to gather technology. The first team's mission was a huge success. They came back with crates full of pre-war artifacts and historical documents. The second wasn't so fortunate. Shortly after they arrived, we lost contact with them and they haven't been heard from since. As far as my team goes, we've lost four good men to this godforsaken wasteland. We've been a target from the moment we arrived. But despite our setbacks, I don't intend to give up and head home... or end up missing."
