After the Great War, Tex attempted to make his way home to his wife Marge in Texas, covering 400 miles before arriving in Appalachia. Upon arrival, he witnessed a group of raiders being attacked by the Brotherhood of Steel outside Grafton, and was approached by Johnny Moreno who spoke with him. After mentioning he was a member of a power armor regiment during the Battle of Anchorage, he was offered a place in the Brotherhood, which he accepted.
He found the Brotherhood's training drills challenging despite his background but eventually proved to be the right fit for the Brotherhood, receiving the first training commendation that Ted Wilson gave since the Great War, eventually joining the Brotherhood with a recommendation for a fast-tracked promotion.
After finishing training at Camp Venture, he fought super mutants in Huntersville. In the Appalachian Brotherhood's final days, he took part in the Brotherhood's last stand at Fort Defiance, eventually becoming one of the last few survivors defending the fort alongside Knight Wilson and Scribe Grant before it fell.
"Tex" Rogers is mentioned only in Fallout 76.

- Ferret Baudoin - 12/16/2020 Fallout for Hope - CHAD: A Fallout 76 Story Podcast Twitch stream: "Tex Rogers is actually one of my favorites. One day I was just writing, and I had this idea of this one, basically veteran -- super badass veteran. Just imagine if you were on a routine trip, and then the bombs fell, and you are a thousand miles from home. And then just the idea of, like, trying to get home, right? And eventually, Tex gives up. It's clear that he's not gonna make it, and he sees these people, and he's like, these people are good, they're trying to do the right thing, I think I've found a home. It was this touching story."
