William "Bill" Breyer was a reporter with the Charleston Herald before the Great War.
Bill Breyer was assigned to investigate Hornwright Industrial's "Motherlode" project before the War. In an attempt to investigate rumors that it was variously a cover to dump toxic waste beneath Appalachia or a new mining method that would revitalize the local economy, he snuck into one of the numerous Hornwright sites that had been created to support the project. He was eventually spotted by Hornwright security, who opened fire on him thinking his recorder was a gun.
William Breyer is mentioned only in Fallout 76.
