Miles Reese was going to be the main antagonist of Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel 2, the canceled sequel to Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel. Bordering a particular hatred for the Brotherhood of Steel, he is fueled by his wish to wage war on them and all mankind. During research he learns about the G.E.C.K. and steals the prototype from the Nursery, planning to use it for creating a New Eden without humans. As Miles heads down to the Gulf of Mexico, the device starts working, leaving a trail of strange plant life all over the countryside. Arriving at the Gulf, he spends the next 5 years improving the G.E.C.K. and modifying it to his needs. However, the increased potence of the device has strange effects of the FEV-infected environment, transforming the landscape and eventually even submerging his own base in the Gulf.
