We wish to escape the barbarity of the wasteland, especially the violence and bigotry of its human inhabitants. The creator has promised to my flock a new land: a place of safety and healing... a paradise in the Far Beyond.”— Jason Bright
A strange cult of Ghouls, and a single human fully believing himself to be a Ghoul, are lead by a charismatic and prophetic glowing one named Jason Bright. Thanks to an extremely rare mutation, Bright never turned Feral, and has instead built up a small following of like-minded Ghouls, clad in the vestments of a tribe in the final stages of preparation to leave for a “new world”; a promised land foretold by Bright, that is the ghoul’s ultimate goal. Jason Bright wasn’t his birth name, it is the name that his flock started calling him when he began his cult. Shunned by frightened outsiders, and murdered by Nightkin convinced the Brotherhood are sitting on a mythical shipment of Stealth Boys. The Brotherhood have long come to realize that they are not bound to, or long for this earth.
Jason Bright is the leader of a group of ghouls which follow him. Chris Haversam, a human convinced he's a ghoul, is in charge of maintaining most of the brotherhood's technology and the rockets for the 'Great Journey'.
Relations with the outsideEdit
They keep mainly to themselves and their only outside contact was recruiting the Courier to find supplies. However, according to the endgame cut-scene narration (under the right circumstances), some of them are said to have returned from their Great Journey and help the town of Novac after the Second Battle of Hoover Dam in the rebuilding of the town's defenses.
Many robed corpses of Bright followers can be found strewn across the Mojave Wasteland, such as at Primm Pass, east of Primm, and the Coyote Den, north of Nipton. One is also under the overpass just south of Sloan, and another under the servo sign at Nipton Road reststop. There is also one north of Wolfhorn Ranch, next to a couple of Legion raiders, waiting to attack a nearby caravan (the caravan only appears if the player is going to Novac for the first time) and another further along the road to Ranger Station Charlie across the road from the Rita's Cafe billboard near a rock by the broken power transmission tower. These bodies appear from the beginning of the game, implying that these Bright followers died prior to their "Great Journey". The dead followers tend to be well armed, especially the ones found within the REPCONN test site, who often carry Plasma Defenders, a very rare weapon elsewhere.
Interactions with the player characterEdit
The Bright Brotherhood appear during the quest Come Fly With Me. Their leader, Jason Bright, believes the Courier to be sent by "The Creator" to stop "demons" and allow them to continue with the "Great Journey".
- Jason Bright, Chris Haversam, and Harland are the only members that do not wear Bright Brotherhood robes.
- After the quest Come Fly With Me, No-bark Noonan will be interviewed on Radio New Vegas about the unexplained rocket launch. Despite being correct about the matter, he's laughed off the air.
The Bright Brotherhood appears in Fallout: New Vegas.
