I dunno. I think there's something to it, yeah, but there's just not enough evidence.

A psyker is a person who posses a certain paranormal power either from FEV like the master's experiments and Melchior, Radiation like the Beastlords, natural selection like Hakunin or 200 years of seclusion in a glass jar like Professor Calvert.

FalloutEdit

After being dipped in FEV vats, absorbing some other people and being connected to the LA Vault computer, the Master gained some psychic powers the extent of which is unknown. He was able to attack humans mentally, although his attacks could be repelled with proper training. The Master was able to somehow bring forth psychic abilities in certain humans after they were injected with FEV (usually the pineal gland, but also the Amygdalae or Medulla), but most of the experiments were failures (resulting in insanity) or used to line the corridor of revulsion. There were four psykers in the Master's lair:

  • Wiggum was electrokinetic-dominant[1]
  • Lucy was telekinetic-dominant and a minor photokinetic[2]
  • Moore was pyrokinetic-dominant[3]
  • Gideon was a receiving-telepathic-dominant (without the ability to control his telepathy, requiring the psychic nullifier to block incoming thoughts) with minor photokinetic abilities.[4]

All four of them died when the Cathedral was vaporized in nuclear fire.

Player abilitiesEdit

The ability to resist the Master's psychic attacks is represented in the SPECIAL system by the Mental Block perk.

Fallout 2Edit

Fallout 3Edit

  • Professor Calvert - one of the residents of Point Lookout, he achieved psionic powers after an experimental procedure. When his brain was extracted from his body (in the same fashion as for robobrain models) and put into a jar, he gained an ability to communicate with people all around the region by entering their minds. To a person, it appeared like a mysterious voice in their head.
  • Bloomseer Poplar - is one of the members of the Treeminders and can predict your future, she describes the settings of some of the major quests you can do like The Superhuman Gambit, "I see a battle between insects and industry, and the men who control them...".

Fallout TacticsEdit

Mini-FOT LogoThe following is based on Fallout Tactics and some details might contradict canon.

A group of tribals known as the Beastlords had a kind of psychic control over animals.

Fallout: New VegasEdit

  • The Forecaster is a child who can see into the future, but can't control his powers. He needs his "medicine" to keep him from over-thinking, thus helping control his headaches. For 100 caps, though, he will forgo his medication and look into the future for the player.
  • Nightkin inside Black Rock cave seem to have some paranormal knowledge of events and characters, if you've completed the quest Crazy, Crazy, Crazy by repairing Rhonda they will tell the "voices" said things that will happen in the main storyline, as well as special comments about the companions, e.g. If you bring Craig Boone as a companion, they will comment "silent man knows more about the spiked crowns than what he says" referring that Boone knows more about Great Khans than what he says (the Bitter Springs Incident).

Fallout OnlineEdit

PV13The following is based on pre-release information for the canceled Fallout Online game by Interplay Entertainment (Codenamed Project V13) and is not considered canon.

"Sykers" were confirmed within the Bethesda Softworks LLC v. Interplay Entertainment Corporation court case to be present within the design wiki for Fallout Online[5]. It is not known if the difference in spelling is attributable to a stenographer's error.

AppearancesEdit

Some kind of psychic powers appears in every Fallout game, although Chris Avellone believes it creates narrative difficulties for the Fallout writers, as stated in Fallout Bible 3. Avellone says:

For Fallout fan-fiction purposes, you are welcome to make use of the psykers and their potential from Fallout, but I'd be careful - the psykers in Fallout show some pretty over-the-top mutations that could take the world to Childhood's End faster than you can say "uh, his eyes are glowing?"

Behind the scenesEdit

The term "psyker" is often attributed to the Warhammer 40,000 tabletop games that likely coined it.
