What I meant was that my goods are of the highest quality, which I assume is what you are looking for.

Bannon is the 30 year old[1] owner of Potomac Attire, a clothing store in the Rivet City marketplace, and a member of the Rivet City Council in the year 2277.


Born in 2247, Bannon is a snappy dresser and a shrewd businessman. His wares are high priced, because he's got no competition. His motto is "If you don't like the pants, go find them yourself." Cindy Cantelli has a crush on him and sits with him in church. She also leaves when he does. Bannon is one of three city council members, along with Doctor Li and Harkness. They meet on Monday mornings for a few hours to discuss city-wide issues. He has quite the ego, but was chosen by Doctor Li to sit on the city council. She seems oblivious to his flaws.[1]

  • "What I meant was that my goods are of the highest quality, which I assume is what you are looking for."
  • "So you've met him, eh? Well he wants to replace me on the council. Now, I can't have that. No siree. He's a shady character, I just can't prove it. If someone were to find something incriminating in his room..."
  • "The people that live on the Hangar Deck are the great unwashed masses. I read that somewhere. Do you like it? Anyway, they need true leaders, like myself."
