Icon disambig
For the Fallout 2 character, see Hoss (Fallout 2).
What's wrong, merc? Price not high enough? Be gone. This is better handled without the aid of an outsider.

Paladin Hoss is a member of the Capital Wasteland chapter of the Brotherhood of Steel in 2277.


Hoss hates chaperoning wayward cadets almost as much as latrine-cleaning duties, and his fears have recently been proven right, as Initiate Pek disappeared on a long-range recon sweep of the Falls Church zone. He's happy for any help.[1]

Hoss only appears in Fallout 3.


  • pcIcon pc ps3Icon ps3 xbox360Icon xbox360 Hoss, the unnamed Brotherhood of Steel Paladin and Initiate Pek can be found in several different places throughout the Capital Wasteland. They, unlike other non-player characters, can sometimes appear in The Pitt, Point Lookout, or even on Mothership Zeta. Note that he steals items. [verified]
  • pcIcon pc ps3Icon ps3 xbox360Icon xbox360 Hoss and several other unnamed Brotherhood Knights may glitch after one has completed the quest to save Initiate Pek. Waiting, sleeping, or fast-traveling to different locations (add-on maps included) may cause Hoss, a random Knight, or both to spawn somewhere immediately beside the Wanderer, before running off in some random direction provided the Wanderer is in the Capital Wasteland; if one is in an add-on map, they'll stand idle until the next time they spawn at the player character's location.

  • pcIcon pc When randomly spawning near the player character, Hoss may be carrying the same weapon that the Wanderer currently has equipped. This includes unique weapons such as the Alien Blaster. [verified]
