Midwestern Wastelands


"There is always another enemy."


Elder Council
General Cevik
Commanding Officer McMenamin

After the defeat of the Master, the original Brotherhood found themselves at odds with their need for new blood versus their code of technological secrecy. The debate went lightly. Finally, the elders ruled against sharing the technology with outsiders, convinced that they would endure what they had before. Further discussion was discouraged when the elders ordered the minority who wished to share their technology on a mission across the wastes.

The Brotherhood constructed airships and dispatched the minority East, to track down and assess the extent of the remaining super mutant threat. However, as they traveled over the great mountains a great storm broke the main airship and flung it far from its course. The mighty airship was badly damaged, the smaller sections were torn from the main craft and never to be seen again. Many of the expedition leaders, including Paladin Latham, were lost to the winds.

The fraction of the crew that still survived, struggled to keep their ship aloft before finally crashing on the outskirts of the ruins of Chicago. Survivors eventually formed a new organization, which diverged greatly from the ideals of the old Brotherhood. In time, they established a harsh rule over the towns and villages in that area.

Symbol[edit | edit source]

While the original Brotherhood uses different colors for different elements of the symbol (blue for the wings, gray for the sword and black for the gears), the Midwestern Brotherhood uses a blue mono-color variation. It should be noted that they also use a mirrored version of the original insignia interchangeably with the original one as well as variants of other colors.

Regional Influence[edit | edit source]

The Midwestern Brotherhood of Steel was once a major faction in the Great Midwestern Wasteland, in the 2190s, but has diminished severely over one hundred years later. A near fascist state placing pure humans over all else, they have been at war with the Mutant Liberation Army since at least the 2250s. With the arrival of The Enclave and Raven Combine in the 2290s, things may be looking up for them. That is, if the Enclave is willing to help them in their losing conflict...

Behind the Scenes[edit | edit source]
