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.

Scribe Yearling is a member of the Brotherhood of Steel in the year 2277, under the position of a Scribe in the Arlington Library. She is a member of the Order of the Quill.

BackgroundEdit

Yearling was born in 2247. A 30-year-old scribe assigned to the Archives, Scribe Yearling has been transferred to a mission to gather pre-War knowledge from the wasteland. She is young, friendly, and the polar opposite of Scribe Rothchild. She's very dedicated and tends to be a bit shy.[1]

When speaking with Scribe Bigsley, he implies that she was assigned to the Arlington Library because she clashed with her superiors.

Daily scheduleEdit

She can be found in the front desk area of the Arlington Library, collecting valuable pre-War books for the Brotherhood of Steel.

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.

  • "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."

AppearancesEdit

Scribe Yearling appears only in Fallout 3.

Behind the scenesEdit
