— Silver Shroud

The Silver Shroud is a fictional character in the Fallout world and the protagonist of the Silver Shroud franchise.


The Silver Shroud is a fictional character created by Hubris Comics. He is a mysterious vigilante who prowls the streets of Boston, terrorizing criminals across the city. He is always depicted wearing a long black trench coat with a silver scarf, a black fedora, and wielding a Silver submachine gun as his preferred weapon. His former love interest, the Mistress of Mystery, is a regular accomplice of his.

According to Kent Connolly, a fan of the character, he did battle with Captain Cosmos in 2071 during a Thanksgiving crossover episode of his radio serial. Additionally, he appeared regularly as a member of The Unstoppables, along with other Hubris Comics heroes such as Grognak the Barbarian.


  • If disguised as the Silver Shroud while speaking to The Mechanist, The Mechanist will refer to the Sole Survivor as such.
  • Porter Gage will dislike the Sole Survivor using Silver Shroud speech options while he is a companion.


The Silver Shroud is seen exclusively in Fallout 4.

The Silver Shroud bears a strong resemblance to 1930s pulp hero "The Shadow." Both characters are stealthy vigilantes with a mysterious demeanor, along with similar costumes, gleaming weaponry (The Shadow's M1911 pistols were named "Silver Heat" in the 1994 film reboot of the character), and catch phrases. The Shadow also has an analogue to Shroud's Mistress of Mystery in the form of his confidante, Margo Lane.
