For other characters who appear in the Fallout universe named Matthew, see Matthew.

The Brotherhood of Steel is not the power that we once were. We believed ourselves to be the sole source of technology left to mankind. Secure in this belief we have let our order decline over the years.

Matt is the Brotherhood of Steel agent staffing the San Francisco Brotherhood outpost around 2241.


He gives the Chosen One the quest about vertibird plans when they first meet.

If the Chosen One completes the task, Matt ends up being killed by the Enclave's own Frank Horrigan 2 days later. (It has not been confirmed what the Chosen One's decision was, or if Matt survives, in Fallout canon)
