Razor, leader of the Blades (concept art)
Gang? We're hardly a gang. But I am the one they all come to for direction.”— Razor
While a peaceful group, they are persecuted by the Regulators, who both coerce them into doing their bidding and frame them for crimes against the people of Adytum. This makes it appear that the Adytowners are seriously threatened by the Blades; a convenient pretext for the Regulators' own repressive policies.
The Blades are fairly disorganized, and simply trust in their leader, Razor, to do what is best for their gang. They live in the large building which dominates the downtown area of Boneyard.
Relations with the outsideEdit
The people of Adytum generally despises the Blades, as they are thought to have killed Jon Zimmerman's son, Jason. While relatively unarmed, a man named MacRae teaches the Blades his knowledge of combat skills as self-defense, and guards their front-door entrance from intruders. He is mainly the only 'representative' the Regulators parley with; however, there is little peace-talk. If the Vault Dweller agrees to help the Blades fight the Regulators, they will be instructed to go to the Gun Runners' fort and ask their leader for weapons and ammunition. After the Vault Dweller does what is asked, the Blades storm Adytum fully geared (the Vault Dweller may be in the fight as well if the player wishes). Alternatively, the player may accept the quest "Kill Razor" in an attempt by the Regulators to rid the Boneyard of the Blades.
The Blades are on a very rudimentary technological level, with even firearms being a rare sight in their arsenal.
Should the Blades become hostile, the player should be able to dispatch the entire contingent due to their poor armament and fighting skills (provided the player is properly leveled, armed and armored).
