Defender Rococo Rockfowl, at your service. Might want to watch your head around here, miss.

Defender Rococo Rockfowl is a member of the Brotherhood Outcasts in the year 2277.


Guarding the bridge from Fairfax ruins is heavy-weapons specialist Rockfowl, who deals with regular raider incursions in a rather laid-back but extremely competent manner. His father was a voracious reader and named him after reading the Encyclopedia Atomica (Volume VIII Radiology-Saskatchewan).[1]

Rockfowl claims to have no quarrel with Elder Lyons himself or with Lyons' branch of the Brotherhood, but simply sees Lyons' actions as a departure from their basic duties and ergo, not his style.

Daily scheduleEdit

Defender Rockfowl patrols the highway overpass next to the entrance to Fort Independence.

Effects of player's actionsEdit

  • Rockfowl will attack if the Lone Wanderer decides to start a fight with the Outcasts.



  • Defender Rockfowl patrols the highway over the entrance to Fort Independence. Because this is very close to the raider-infested Fairfax ruins, Rockfowl may spot one of the raiders inside the ruins, causing him to run inside for a fight. This draws out all the other raiders and initiates a large firefight that the Defender may not survive without the player's assistance.
  • He is one of the few NPCs that consistently carries/uses a Gatling laser.
  • He is one of the rare named NPCs in the game that respawn after being killed.

Notable quotesEdit

  • "We've got power armor and big guns and we're the ones doing the talking right now. Usually, that's all a person needs to know, and they stop asking questions. You going to stop asking questions, now?"
  • "Defender Rococo Rockfowl, at your service. Might want to watch your head around here, miss."
  • "Then I think we'd have a problem. And you don't want to be a problem around here. Protector Casdin, he says I got a real knack for solving problems."
