After he is rescued by the Warrior, the Elders decided it would be best to send him to one of many Brotherhood internment camps and determined that was an excellent opportunity to pick his brain for any additional information. It is unknown what happened to them after that. He could have been set free or restricted to labor camps.
- "I am Tobias Peste, Chief of Military Science Projects. On my eleventh day of fasting, St. Sony visited me in my deepest of dreams. He told me of an Electro-Magnetic Pulse that will be the salvation of the Wasteland. For weeks I toiled in our Temple-Laboratory until I gave that vision physical form! And by 'Ohms Holy Law', I will not rest until it reaches a place of sanctuary! Here is the key to the safe! The weapon is inside! Our prophecies told us our faith would be tested. But now the robots are taking prisoners instead of letting our fighters go to their rewards in the eternal Assembly Lines of Panasonica. For what purpose are they taking my brethren? This must be discovered! Let's stop wasting time."
- "I will wish you well only because you now battle the minions of the "Dark One". I would not dare to judge the bias of "He" who is the "Electric Father of Creation." It is "His" will that I instruct your "Elders" about the Angelic Electro Magnetic Pulse."
Tobias Peste appears only in Fallout Tactics.
