The collected knowledge of a lost age is worth far more than any weapon. Do not underestimate the power of the written word.

Scribe Yearling is a Scribe of the Brotherhood of Steel, assigned to the Order of the Quill. She is the commander of the Brotherhood garrison stationed at the Arlington Library in 2277.

BackgroundEdit

She was assigned the task of collecting data and knowledge from pre-War texts, Data collected is then to be shipped back to headquarters for preservation in the Brotherhood's archives, administered to by Scribe Jameson.[2]

Notable quotesEdit

  • "The collected knowledge of a lost age is worth far more than any weapon. Do not underestimate the power of the written word."
  • "If nothing else, I admire your commitment to your chosen focus. But, to the point: My task here is to collect the written works of those who came before in order to supplement the Brotherhood archives. Although most of the pre-war books have been destroyed, there are a few that have survived. But finding a book in the ruins is... difficult. So, return here with any books that you find and I will reward you for them. With money. Because that's what you like."
  • "Good. My task here is to collect the written works of those who came before in order to supplement the Brotherhood Archives at the Citadel. Although most of the pre-war books have been destroyed, there are a few that have survived. But finding a book in these ruins is... difficult. I could have a million Initiates to comb the ruins, and I'd still never come close to recovering every book that remains undamaged."
