This page is about a generic character in Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas. For the rank, see Initiate (rank).

Are you kidding me? It's not the weapon, Initiate! Try holding the gun properly instead of firing from the hip like some goddamned cowboy.

Glade, while training an initiate

Brotherhood of Steel initiates are new recruits of the Brotherhood of Steel in 2277.


Initiates are considered to be in training, although they can be assigned to combat duty, if they are considered good enough. They are typically seen wearing recon armor while training in the Citadel and combat armor while training in the field.

Unlike in the other Brotherhood divisions, Initiates may even be issued power armor if their assignment merits it. Power armor is issued to all Initiates assigned to non-training combat duty, such as Initiate Reddin of the Lyons' Pride, the Initiates assigned to mirelurk-clearing duty near Project Purity in Broken Steel, and any Initiates assigned as Water Caravan guards.
