Good luck, you get to room with Jerry the mouth.— an Initiate

Initiates are trainee soldiers for the Brotherhood of Steel at Lost Hills in 2161.


The Initiates are new members of the Brotherhood, training in the basics. They are generally born from other members but occasionally an outsider is granted initiation after the Brotherhood recognises their worth.

They are split into two groups: initiate knights and initiate scribes.
