Outstanding. Proceed on the double to the hangar where you will stand guard duty. You will do a fine job. Do you understand?

Sergeant Arch Dornan is an Enclave non-commissioned officer who is stationed at Navarro's airbase in 2241.


Equipped with advanced power armor and a characteristically bad attitude, he was the bane of privates, chastising them for the slightest mishaps and breaches of protocol, especially if he dislikes them.

Other interactionsEdit

  • In-game, it is best to steer clear of him, as talking to him even while equipped with advanced power armor will end with him forcing the Chosen One to stand guard at the hangar. If initiated dialogue with him while being supposed to guard the hangar, he won't be pleased at all.
  • Should he spot the Chosen One out of Enclave armor, there is a chance he has them thrown off the base, thinking they are just another civilian. However, with enough points in primary and secondary statistics, one can fool him into believing that they have actually lost it or were not issued one by sloppy base personnel, resulting in a lengthy speech and a dismissal to the Quartermaster for another suit. Either way, armor in the end.

Like the Navarro base commander, Arch Dornan uses a female proto id, but is referred to as a male in dialogue.

Notable quotesEdit

  • "You mo-ron, you are not to question my orders! When I say jump, you jump! When I say fight, you fight! When I tell you to die for your country, then you will certainly die! Have I made myself clear?"
  • "Welcome to Camp Navarro... a civilian! How in the hell did a civilian get on this base? I'll have someone's ass for dinner! Get this civilian off government property!"
  • "Outstanding. Proceed on the double to the hangar where you will stand guard duty. You will do a fine job. Do you understand?"
  • "I am not a sir! I work for a living you mo-ron! You will call me Sergeant or Sergeant Dornan do you understand me? "
  • "If I like you, you can call me Sarge. But guess what? I don't like you! Do you understand?"


Arch Dornan appears only in Fallout 2, however, Cannibal Johnson in Fallout: New Vegas makes a reference to Dornan, remembering him for once catching a private out of uniform and going on the most "ear-blistering rant known to man."

Behind the scenesEdit

The character is often considered by most to be a "comic relief" character, due to his over-the-top rage.
