Episode 1: A Slaying in Scollay Square Edit
Man: "Just down this alley."
Female Thug: "Well, well, well. Looks like someone got lost on the wrong side of the tracks."
Male Thug: "Hehe, yeah wrong side of the tracks."
Man: "I'm just meeting a friend. No business of yours. Perhaps I'll just call him. Now, if you'll excuse me..."
Female Thug: "Not so fast, fancy pants. Your wallet and that snazzy brief case you're carrying: hand them over, now!"
Man: "I most certainly will not. Do you have any idea who..."
Male Thug: "Aw geez Louise, why did you go and do that?"
Female Thug: "Because he could have made us that's why. You want to spend another stretch in the pokey? Now, let’s see what's in this fancy case... nothing! Papers, no cash, its worthless. Ugh, get his wallet. A suit like this has gotta have something."
Male Thug: "Alright, alright, let’s see, 20 bucks, a driver’s license... oh man, we done it this time. Do you know who this is? We just wasted Mayor Murphy!"
Female Thug: "What? The Mayor Murphy, what in the blazes was he doing here, up in Scollay Square?"
Silver Shroud: "A mystery to be sure."
Female Thug: "Who said that? Show yourself!"
Silver Shroud: "You have murdered a man in cold blood, justice must be served!"
Male Thug: "It's the Silver Shroud, let's get out of here!"
Female Thug: "I ain't afraid of the Silver Shroud. You hear me? Come out, and I'll do you like the Mayor."
Silver Shroud: "Death has come for you, evil doer, and I am its Shroud!"
Male Thug: "Agggh!"
Female Thug: "No!"
Silver Shroud: "My work here is done, or is it? What brought you to Scollay Square Mayor Murphy? A journey that left you dead and Boston leaderless, why venture?"
Silver Shroud: "Emerge from the shadows villain, or face the justice of The Silver Shroud!"
Episode 2: The Mystery of Mayor MurphyEdit
Silver Shroud: "Slowly now, reveal yourself!"
Mistress of Mystery: "Silver Shroud, fret not old friend. It’s only me.
Silver Shroud: "Mistress of Mystery! What brings you to Scollay Square on such a foul night?"
Mistress of Mystery: "Tracking our dear Mayor Murphy who was up to some mischief."
Silver Shroud: "The Mayor? So he wasn't here in some sort of official capacity?
Mistress of Mystery: "Hardly. Here, let me show you, the contents of the late mayor’s case."
Silver Shroud: "But these are real estate papers, leases and deeds from most the businesses in Scollay Square."
Mistress of Mystery: "Indeed they are, my intrepid investigator. It would seem our Mayor Murphy was involved in a rather crooked caper. He was here to meet with some other mysterious malefactor."
Fat Fahy: "So Mr. Mayor I hope you found the place alright…"
Fat Fahy: "What the? Silver Shroud? And Mistress of Mystery? And the mayor? Dead?
Silver Shroud: "Fat Fahy, the infamous mob boss! So you were meeting with Mayor Murphy? But why? Tell me and you may yet live."
Mistress of Mystery: "Best listen to my friend, Fahy."
Fat Fahy: "I’ll never talk, you two are in over your heads."
Silver Shroud: "So be it! Death has come for you evil doer, and I am its…"
Fat Fahy: "Shroud. Shroud this crime fighter!"
Fat Fahy: "Later, sucka’s!"
Mistress of Mystery:"Silver Shroud! You’re shot!"
Silver Shroud: "Ugh, just a graze. You must… go after him."
Mistress of Mystery: "No, we’ll let our quarry flee for now. That bullet must be removed. And you are bleeding, badly."
Silver Shroud: "Must get back to my… "
Mistress of Mystery: "Hush now stoic shroud, I will take you to my parlor. It is close and that wound is worrisome. "
Silver Shroud: "The parlor, it’s been so long."
Mistress of Mystery: "Indeed it has has old friend… old love, indeed it has. And now, we must away!"
Episode 3: In the Parlor of Mysteries Edit
Silver Shroud: “Chasmen, Chamomile, Bane, Ecstasy, this can only be...The Den of Mysteries!”
Mistress of Mystery: “Be still sweet, Shroud. I removed that scumbag’s slug but you’re sick with fever and still suffering.”
Silver Shroud: “Mistress of Mystery, no, I’m alright, but the Mayor! Fat Fahy! We stumbled upon a most sinister plot, old friend.”
Mistress of Mystery: “Ha! No, dear heart. The Shroud stumbled, the Mistress maneuvered. I knew of the Mayor’s misdeeds for many days. I followed him to that fateful meeting with Fat Fahy. I was about to…”
Police Chief (Over Megaphone): “Attention! Silver Shroud and Mistress of Mystery! This is Chief Corcoran of the Boston Police Department. We know you're in there! You are both wanted in connection to the murder of Mayor Murphy. Come out with your hands up!”
Mistress of Mystery: “Hmm. It would seem that our leaving the scene of the Scollay Slaughter was terribly timed. Incurring the wrath of Boston’s finest is an unfortunate and unexpected annoyance.”
Silver Shroud: “Unexpected by us maybe, but perhaps not for Fat Fahy. Ugh… I’m starting to see into his twisted plan, ugh! Damn this gunshot wound!”
Police Chief (Over Megaphone):“Look, heroes, we can clear this up. Come out now unarmed. I will see that you two get the best lawyers in the city.”
Mistress of Mystery: “Hmph. Excuse my assumption, but even the most astute attorney couldn’t help us now.”
Silver Shroud: “You’re right Mistress, we must away from your den and evade the police, clear our names, and take Fahy down.”
Police Chief (Over Megaphone):“That’s it! We’re coming in!”
[Door being kicked in]
Police Chief:“Silver Shroud, Mistress of Mystery hands up by order of the Boston Police.”
Silver Shroud: “Chief Corcoran, I am Death’s shroud, but you are undeserved of my terrible justice. Think on my mercy.”
Police Chief:“Stop or we’ll shoot. Men, open fire.”
Police Chief:“Dammit, where did this mist come from?”
Officer Webblewitz: “Wait, it's clearing. Chief, they ain’t here. They’re gone!”
Police Chief: “I was hoping you would say that Officer Webblewitz, I was hoping you’d say that.”
Episode 4: Fat Fahy’s FollyEdit
Pauly: “Come on, Dollface, it’s right through here.”
"Mysterious Woman: “Oh gee, Pauly, I’ve never been in a secret gangsta’ hide out before.”
Fat Fahy: “What the? Pauly! You dumb jamoke! What’s the big idea bringing a dame into our hideout, into my hideout!”
Pauly: “Aw, relax, boss, she’s alright. Ain’t you alright, Wendy? Cindy? Yeah.”
"Mysterious Woman: “It’s Candy, and yeah, of course I’m alright. I’m just a young dumb girl in love with a handsome, dangerous man.“
Fat Fahy: “Aw, brother. Alright, the skirt can stay. But close that door, the last thing we need is…”
Silver Shroud: “The Silver Shroud infiltrating your nefarious lair? “
Fat Fahy: “Holy cannoli! It’s the Nightmare of Night, the Deceptive Detective, the Dark Dick! Pauly, you idiot! You were duped! That’s no normal dame!“
Mistress of Mystery: “Quite right, you custodian of criminality, for I am not Candy the captivating companion. It is I, the Mistress of Mystery. I have clouded Pauly’s paltry perceptions to gain access to your den of depravity."
Pauly: “Sorry, boss, I had no idea!“
Silver Shroud: “Your mistake is our gain. Pauly, is it? Death has come for you evil doer, and I am its Shroud!“
Fat Fahy: “Pauly! No! Okay, okay listen! Whatever you want Silver Shroud, I’ll do it, just don’t kill me too!”
Silver Shroud: “Pathetic and predictable, when faced with fear the cocksure culprit.”
Fat Fahy: “Ha ha, hahahahahaha, oh you two! Crime fighters? What a laugh. And you call me predictable. You don’t got any idea, do ya’s?“
Silver Shroud: “Why the joviality, Fahy? I, the Silver Shroud, have got you dead to rights! Yet you persist in this mindless guffawing. Not the behavior I would expect from a criminal mastermind.“
Fat Fahy: “And you’re right. Criminal mastermind? Me? Bub, you’re as dumb as that getup. I’m just a pawn in this game pal, you see? My master, the real master, he’s been pulling all the strings.“
Mistress of Mystery: “You mean…”
Fat Fahy: “That’s right, Mistress, this was all just a big distraction. While we were here having our little jaw session, my boss has been at your parlor stealing back those deeds you took from Mayor Murphy’s briefcase.”
Mistress of Mystery: “Treacherous toad, you defiled my sacred sanctum? For that, you will feel my fury. Behold the Blade of Bastet.“
*[Whoshing of blade and splat]
Silver Shroud: “Mistress, no! We needed him alive.”
Fat Fahy: “Ha... that was never -- [electronic crackling]* -- going to happen. I have never been alive. You see?”
Silver Shroud: “By the shadows, Fat Fahy, he’s… he’s a robot!”
Fat Fahy: “Wow… [electronic crackling] ain't you quite the detective? Too bad your career as a crime fighter-- [electronic crackling] --is over. Mob-bots! Attack!”
Mistress of Mystery: “Mobster Robots! Assaulting at all angles! Not even the Silver Shroud can kill what isn’t alive.“
Silver Shroud: “Watch me, Mistress! Watch me. Heyaaah! Haha!”
Episode 5: Into the Robot’s DenEdit
Silver Shroud: “That’s all of them. Fat Fahy’s mob-bots have been sent back to the mechanical hell that spawned them.”
Mistress of Mystery: “Yes, my collared companion, and no. Robotic hell spawns they were, but not Fat Fahy’s. For he himself presented the facts, someone else is actually…”
Silver Shroud: “The master of it all. You’re right, but who? Dearest Mistress of Mysteries you and I have battled Boston’s rogues gallery for years… This, this is someone new.”
Mistress of Mystery: “Certainly, but which criminal culprit had the technological knowhow to construct such clockwork calamities? I don’t…”
Mob-Bot: “You don’t know anything-- [electronic crackling] --yeah, right-- [electronic crackling] but I, I do see. And I’ll tell ya too-- [electronic crackling] --on one condition.”
Silver Shroud: “By the shadow streets of Southy, one of the mob-bots heads is still talking.”
Mob-Bot: “You’re darn right I am. I can’t feel my legs cause you shot me up good, Shroud, but I still got my kisser, see? And, and I’m going to use it to tell ya’s where the big boss man is, see?”
Silver Shroud: “And your one condition?”
Mob-Bot: “You take my head with ya’, so's I can see ya’ take that creep down. Yeah, what did he ever do for me, huh? Ok, so he created me, whoop-dee-do. Who needs a father who sends his kids out to die?”
Mistress of Mystery: “Silver Shroud, I sense truth in this clockwork crook. Shall I?”
Silver Shroud: “Use your Blade of Bastet to free the mob-bot’s head from its now destroyed body. Hm, mm, mm. Do it.”
[Whooshing slice of blade and electronic crackling]
Mob-Bot: “Hah, sweet freedom! Thanks, Dollface!”
Silver Shroud: “Now tell us! Who is your creator, the robotic puppet master pulling your twisted wires? Speak, you decapitated electronic evil doer!”
Mob-Bot: “Eh, eh, eh, that would spoil all the fun. You got to see for yourself. Come on, let’s be frank. To the big warehouse down on Pier Twelve.”
Mistress of Mystery: “Fine, you amoral automaton, we’re away!”
Silver Shroud: “A moonless night, and an unguarded skylight. Just what we needed to stealthily infiltrate this warehouse.”
Mistress of Mystery: “Yes, and our view from above is advantageous, for the gathering below is unlike any soiree I’ve ever seen.”
Silver Shroud: “Robots! Dozens of them, all shapes and sizes, and all prestige. Their leader! Another robot, no, not a robot! A man in a robot costume!”
Mob-Bot: “Shhh! Shut up you dummies! Us robots got good hearing, you’re going to get yourselves caught. Now listen, Boss-Man is about to talk.”
The Mechanist: “My robotic children, my glorious creations! We stand tonight at the dawn of a new era. For too long the human vermin of Boston have destroyed this fair city. The flesh is weak, but steel! Steel is strong. You, my children, will usher in a new age, an age of robots led by me! Your father, the Mechanist!”
Silver Shroud: “The Mechanist! So, evil does have a name.”
The Mechanist: “The revolution begins tonight my precious offspring! But first, let’s welcome our special guests for this evening. Silver Shroud, and the Mistress of Mystery.”
Mob-Bot: “Uh oh.”
Episode 6: The Mechanist Unmasked!Edit
Silver Shroud: "Dangling over a pit of fire. Reminds me of our adventure against, Chelsea Mangler, eh, Mistress?"
Mistress of Mystery: "Indeed, Silver Shroud. But that malformed murderer was but a moppet compared to the malignancy of The Mechanist!"
The Mechanist: "Malignant, am I? No, Mistress of Mystery, what you mistake for evil is actually... enlightenment. Only I, The Mechanist, truly understands the folly of human kind. The flesh is weak. Metal is the future of Massachusetts!"
The Silver Shroud: "The only future you have is a long nap in a deep hole, Mechanist! To me, you're just another two-bit hustler with delusions of grandeur! And by the way, you're not fooling anyone with that cheap get-up! You're as human as the rest of us."
Mistress of Mystery: "Silver Shroud, glance skyward and see. Our newfound friend, the head of the bodiless bot. And it would seem he's biting, through our bindings!"
[Jaws clacking, rope snapping]
Mob-Bot: "Eyy, down there! Mechanist! You robot wannabe! Remember me? No? I didn't think so. That's the problem. Ya made me but ya didn't love me! You didn't love any of us ya selfish jemoke! Now it's time to pay!"
Mistress of Mystery: "Gasp!"
The Mechanist: "Fools, all of you! Attack, my robot children. Destroy these interlopers!"
The Silver Shroud: "The robots, they're advancing! And our weapons have been confiscated. So, Fistecufs it is then!"
Mistress of Mystery: "And furiously fluid footwork! Haaiah!"
Robot: "By order of our master, The Mechanist, You. Will. Be. Destroyed! Dee-Stroy-Eed!"
The Silver Shroud: "And that! Ha, ha! Is the last of them. Now, for The Mechainst! But where did that vile ruffian escape to?"
Mob-Bot: "Hey, Silver do-gooder! It's me, the head! Yeah, that's right, I'm up here, in the rafters. I'm your eye in the sky! I saw where The Mechanist went! He's in that office, up the stairs!"
Mistress of Mystery: "Well done, heroic head. Your adjusted attitude has made allies of us all! Silver Shroud, shall we?"
The Silver Shroud: "We shall."
The Mechanist: "Stop right there! Not a step closer! You may have defeated my robot children, but now, I will turn your one weapon against you!"
Mistress of Mystery: "Silver Shroud! He's armed with your Silver Shooter! Your most revered rifle!"
The Silver Shroud: "So he is, Mistress. So. He. Is. Alright, Mechanist! It's your move! Shoot if you've got the chutzpah."
The Mechanist: "I've been waiting for this moment a long time, Silver Shroud. With you and your harlot out of the way, the age of the robots can truly begin! Now... Die!"
The Mechanist: "NhaaaaaH!!"
Misteriss of Mystery: "Silver Shroud, The bullets! They bounced! Ricocheted right off your raiment, right back at..."
Silver Shroud: "The Mechanist! Haha! That's right, Mistress, For what kind of crime fighter would I be without a few mysteries of my own? The Silver weapon, of the Silver Shroud, can never harm... The Silver Shroud!"
The Mechanist: "So... this is... the end... all I wanted... was a better, life. A better, Commonwealth. Free from the petty squabbles... of humankind."
Mistress of Mystery: "We have the why, but not the who. Silver Shroud, unmask this miscreant, and reveal the man beneath the metal!"
The Silver Shroud: "Yes, it is time we knew the truth. Who is The Mechanist?"
Mistress of Mystery: "By the rays of Rah, The Mechanist is none other than..."
The Silver Shroud: "Mayor Murphy! Of course, it all makes sense."
Mayor Murphy: "He, he, he... my death in that alley: a ruse. He was just one of my robots. But by being dead..."
The Silver Shroud: "You could turn your little hobby into a full-time endeavour. And the real estate papers?"
Mistress of Mystery: "A rancorous ruse! A spiteful sham! All to throw us off the trail!"
Mayor Murphy: "Yes, is was... masterplan. And you, ruined it all! But what happens now. I need... a doctor! An... ambulance!"
Mistress of Mystery: "Stalwart Shroud, could it be? Can the mewling Mechanist not foresee his fate?"
Mayor Murphy: "My... fate? What... fate?
The Silver Shroud: "Death has come for you, Mayor Murphy! And I am its Shroud!"
Silver Shroud Radio appears only in Fallout 4.
Behind the scenesEdit
During an episode of the radio show, the Silver Shroud encounters a man dressed in a robot costume who controls an group of robots called the Mechanist. This is an obvious reference to Fallout 3's Mechanist, although Fallout 3's Mechanist is a crime fighter while Fallout 4's is a criminal.
- pc Sometimes after completing the mission 'The Silver Shroud', Kent Connolly will not reactivate the radio station. This will also not allow you to upgrade the 'Silver Shroud Armor'. This happens if the player is above level 45 when finishing the quest. [verified]
- On the radio broadcasts, Kent Connolly will refer to your character as "he" even if the Silver Shroud is female.
