For the Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel skill, see Butcher (skill).
The name's Butcher, I'm the team medic. It's good to see a friendly face.

Carl "Butcher" is the medic of Reilly's Rangers in 2277.


Born in 2246,[1] Butcher is the team's medic. He has saved their lives on more than one occasion. His original name was Carl, but Brick jokingly called him "Butcher" once, and the name stuck. He is the worst of the team in terms of fighting, but his prowess as a medic more than makes up for it. He is currently quite depressed at the death of his teammate, Theo, but there wasn't much he could have done to save him.


Butcher is a member of Reilly's Rangers. Butcher is in a relationship with Reilly, and she will be very distraught should Butcher not survive the escape from the Statesman.

Daily scheduleEdit

Until completion of the Reilly's Rangers quest, Butcher can be found at the roof of the Statesman Hotel together with the other Rangers except Reilly herself.

After the completion of the quest, he and the other rangers can be found at the Ranger compound.

Notable quotesEdit

  • "The name's Butcher, I'm the team medic. It's good to see a friendly face."
  • "She's our commander. I hope she's still alive. When I saw you come up here, I assumed she'd sent you. Well, we can chit-chat about all that later. Right now, can you help us get off this damn roof?"
  • "Well, I can think of a faster way, but I doubt you'd survive the fall."


Butcher appears only in Fallout 3.


  1. In 2277, he is 31 according to Reilly's terminal. The Fallout 3 Official Game Guide incorrectly lists his age as 29.
