The dead branchtender is a dead character found in the Oasis caverns in 2277.

The fastest way of finding him is opening the south gate to the caverns (Very Hard locked), then soon after a bend to the left his corpse is lying near a ground lantern. The alternative is going through the damp cave, sunken chambers and then entering the caverns.


The Branchtender's background is not known, except that he was killed by mirelurks.
