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.
pcps3xbox360 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]
pcps3xbox360 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.
