I wish I had met you a long time ago, then maybe my dad would still be alive.

When the settlement was attacked by Giant Ants and all the inhabitants were wiped out, eight-year-old Bryan hid underneath a demolished car. Luckily, the huge insects overlooked him and moved on aftercarrying off their prey. Since the attack, Bryan’s food and water supply has dwindled (his father used to make trips to stock up for the entire settlement), and he has left the safety of the small settlement in hopes of finding help.Fallout 3 Official Game Guide/Wasteland Census

Bugs

  • Xbox 360Xbox 360 If Vera Weatherly dies after Bryan moves in with her, Bryan may appear inside of the Enclave garrison outside of the Jefferson Memorial during Take it Back! Strangely, Enclave soldiers will be friendly to Bryan while Brotherhood troops are hostile and will open fire on Bryan.
  • Xbox 360Xbox 360 If you attack Bryan while he is in Rivet City, everyone will become hostile towards him but not you. As he cannot be killed, the resident non-player characters will chase him and attack him fruitlessly.
  • PCPC Playstation 3Playstation 3 Xbox 360Xbox 360 It is possible to find Bryan being attacked by other NPCs. Examples of this include the Enclave soldier north of the Ruined Farmhouse, and random event occurrences outside the Super-Duper Mart.
  • PCPC Playstation 3Playstation 3 Xbox 360Xbox 360 Bryan can be pickpocketed and reverse-pickpocketed. This can be used to arm him and change his clothing. The player can also steal and wear his ragamuffin outfit. Placing an explosive device in his inventory merely adds it to his inventory rather than changing it to a live explosive.

    Bryan Wilks: "Well, pappa always told me about my cousin Vera. She lives on some big, giant ship somewhere or something. Pappa called the place "Rivet City", but I dunno where it is."

  2. 2.0 2.1 Lone Wanderer: "Vera, your nephew Bryan lost his folks and needs a place to live."
    Vera Weatherly: "Poor dear. I know what it's like to be alone. I'd love to take him in. Don't worry, I have the means to keep him fed and healthy but most importantly, safe."
    (Vera Weatherly's dialogue)
  3. Lone Wanderer: "How about Will's parents?"
    Bryan Wilks: "Well, his mom was nice too. She was kind of quiet, but she always took care of me and my pappa when we came over. I think she was sad that my mom was gone. Will's dad was... well, I don't wanna be mean... but he was kinda scary."
    (Bryan Wilks' dialogue)
  4. Lone Wanderer: "So, you and Will were good friends?"
    Bryan Wilks: "Yeah, Will was super nice to me. He was like a year older than me I think. He even shared his comic books with me. We explored pretty much every bit of Grayditch we could find. I think that's why the ants don't bother me... I have good hiding spots."
    (Bryan Wilks' dialogue)
  5. Lone Wanderer: "Who the hell is Bryan Wilks?"
    Doctor Lesko: "He's a rather bothersome young lad. Always asking interminable questions and interrupting my calculations. After you're done down here, perhaps you can locate him on the surface and speak to him."
    (Doctor Lesko's dialogue)
  6. Lone Wanderer: "So, how are you getting along now that you've left Grayditch behind?"
    Bryan Wilks: "Oh, Vera is the nicest lady ever! It's so cool that you brought me here! I mean, she makes me do stuff... like clean up her hotel and all that, but she really cares about me. Plus, I found some friends here in Rivet City too. All thanks to you!"
    (Bryan Wilks' dialogue)
  7. Lone Wanderer: "So, how are you getting along now that you've left Grayditch behind?"
    Bryan Wilks: "I dunno. I mean, there are tons of other kids here like me but they're all kind of weird. I don't really like sleeping in a huge cave... I keep having dreams about the ants. Oh well, at least I'm safer than I was in Grayditch, so I guess I have to thank you for that."
