Slag is the current leader of the Forged, an especially fanatical gang of fire-worshipping raiders established in the Saugus Ironworks in 2287.


Slag is the leader of the Forged and is originally from outside the Commonwealth. When first accepting recruits, it was a slow process, as many of the recruits died early in the trials. At some point he engaged in conflict with the Gunners and killed many notable members, which inspired more people to join including several former Gunners. By the time the Sole Survivor reaches the Ironworks, he has a strong, well equipped raider army.

He wields Abraham Finch's Shishkebab sword which Jake Finch gave to Slag to gain his favor as an offering in order to join the Forged.
