Trouble on the Homefront
What have you done? The Vault is done for!
Officer Richards is a member of Vault 101 security in 2277.
A little less relentless than
Officer O'Brian in his beating of those milling about Vault 101 during the escape of the Lone Wanderer, Officer Richards is still under orders to stop those from breaching the vault door.
Officer Richards guards the locked atrium door to the Vault 101 entrance together with Officer O'Brian.
