Gametitle-VBThe following is based on Van Buren and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

Knight Edward Whatley is a mechanic for the Brotherhood of Steel in 2253.


Edward began his career as a mechanic's assistant in a small town. He showed great potential to become a mechanic himself, but his mentor jealously guarded his secrets. Edward's sister, Sarah, worked hard to earn enough money to buy her brother the education that he needed. Her hard work paid off and he became a master mechanic.

Edward was discovered by a Brotherhood of Steel recruiter and offered a position in the order. He decided to accept under one condition, his sister was to be allowed to join as well. Although this was unheard of, the Order was unwilling to risk losing Edward's skills and eventually agreed.

Edward is a simple man and is pleased with his life. He loves his sister and watches over her just as much as she watches over him. The two siblings are very close and neither one goes anywhere without the other.[1]
