Oh, thank God. Paladin Hoss sent you, didn't he? I knew he wouldn't leave me behind. When they attacked, we were cut off so quickly. My gun jammed and I never even got a shot off. I couldn't do anything but hide.”
Initiate Pek was born in 2261 and is young (16), gung-ho, and inexperienced. He is in love with Sarah Lyons (who finds him secretly amusing but is professionally annoyed with his behavior, and has requested that he patrol a different part of the Metro area). Pek is always the one charging into danger first, celebrating victory prematurely, and possibly getting blown away by foes he never saw coming.
During a training exercise in Falls Church, Pek, Paladin Hoss, and an unnamed Paladin were separated by a super mutant attack. Pek became trapped in an office building while Hoss and a paladin were fighting nearby, and you must help them during the quest The Lost Initiate.

- He will not turn hostile when hit with the Mesmetron.
- With a high enough Small Guns or Repair skill, you can unjam his gun (in dialogue).
