"Shield yourself from those not bound to you by steel, for they are the blind. Aid them when you can, but lose not sight of yourself," it says.

Squire Arthur Maxson is the last descendant of John Maxson in the year 2277. Maxson and his ancestors are the founders and traditional leaders of the Brotherhood of Steel.


Arthur was born in 2267 and is a descendant of the legendary Roger Maxson, founder of the Brotherhood of Steel. His father, a high-ranking Paladin serving just outside the (New California Republic), was killed in battle, and his mother, Jessica Maxson, sent the boy east to be raised under the tutelage of the respected Elder Lyons. Squire Maxson tends toward timidity, which is the main reason his mother sent him to the Citadel.[1]

From his computer (which the Lone Wanderer can hack without Karma penalties), the Lone Wanderer can discover that young Arthur enjoys writing stories, has a crush on Sarah Lyons (because she taught him to kill a man by stabbing him in the kidneys), and that there is a Guns and Bullets magazine underneath a bed in the den.

Daily scheduleEdit

He can usually be found in the Citadel B ring, where his room (and personal terminal) is located.

Notable quotesEdit

  • "Oh, well... You see, I am descended from the great Roger Maxson, founder of our order. I am the last of his line. They say my soul was forged from eternal steel, but I don't believe that. I'm really just a normal boy."
  • "Shield yourself from those not bound to you by steel, for they are the blind. Aid them when you can, but lose not sight of yourself, it says."
  • "I did go out one time, you know! Sarah... Um... Sentinel Lyons took me out. Just to show me. I killed a Super Mutant, too! I swear! I, um... I also sort of shot Sarah. But just a little! It was just a flesh wound..."


Squire Arthur Maxson appears only in Fallout 3.

Behind the scenesEdit

If the Lone Wanderer talks to him and asks, "Do they make you fight?" He will say that he accidentally shot Sarah Lyons and says, "It was just a flesh wound", a reference to the fight between Arthur and the Black Knight from Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
