Sir, this is the last time I am going to repeat myself. Stand down at once and turn over control of this facility.

Colonel Augustus Autumn[1][2] is the commanding officer of the Capital Wasteland Enclave contingent and the main antagonist of Fallout 3.

Background

Autumn was raised on the oil rig.[Pub 1] His father was a high-ranking Enclave scientist who received orders from the president to relocate all high-ranking officials to Raven Rock, the only secure Enclave location with a functioning ZAX super-computer.[Pub 1]

Colonel Autumn expresses his belief that the Enclave is the legitimate continuation of the United States government.[3] He is dedicated to preserving the initiatives of the government, referring to those who oppose him as traitors.[4][5] He warns the people living in the Capital Wasteland not to interfere with the Enclave's mission, or risk harsh consequences.[6] The colonel's ideas for how best to solidify power in the region puts him at odds with President Eden, resulting in Autumn circumventing the president's orders.[7]

Publications

Autumn grew up on an oil rig off the California coast (the base of operations for the Enclave, the secretive contingent of the United States government that survived after the apocalypse). His father was the high-ranking Enclave scientist on orders from the president to move all high-ranking officials to the only other secure Enclave location with a functioning ZAX super-computer, Raven Rock. Colonel Autumn has proven to be far less subservient than his scientist father, often openly disagreeing with the president’s decisions.Fallout 3 Official Game Guide/Wasteland Census

  1. Three Dog: "Good golly, Holly. This is the worst thing to happen to our neighborhood since the HOA instituted their mandatory "scavenged rags" dress code. From Rivet City to downtown D.C., the Enclave is on the scene and setting up shop. Children, I don't care if you've ignored every other word that's come out of my mouth for the past five years. Please. Hear me now, and believe. The Enclave, and that includes their Homecoming King, "President" John Henry Eden and his gorilla Colonel Augustus Autumn, are NOT here to help you. Wake up, children the Enclave have a giant truck full 'o Brahmin, and they've been spoon-feeding you the bullshit. These guys are schemers, crooks, and killers, and the sooner you all realize that and stand up to their oppression, the better. That, my friends, is fighting the good fight."

  2. John Henry Eden: "The Enclave is back, America! And no, not just on your radio. Right now Enclave troops are patrolling the Capital Wasteland! These fine men and women, under the command of the stalwart Colonel Augustus Autumn, have one mission: the restoration of American peace and order. But let's hear from the man himself, shall we? America, I give you - Colonel Augustus Autumn!"
    Augustus Autumn: "Thank you, Mr. President. People of the Capital Wasteland. I am Colonel Autumn. By now, you have encountered Enclave troops in your towns, in your settlements. When you see the Enclave, you see the United States government. We are authorized to restore order and civility, by any means necessary. Just stay out of the way and let us do our job. Interfere with the Enclave's mission, and you will be dealt with. Harshly."
    John Henry Eden: "Very good, Colonel. Very good! So there you have it, my darling America. Enclave troops are now in your neighborhoods, in your lives, in your hearts. Together, we'll restore the glory of this great nation. One problem at a time."
    (Augustus Autumn and John Henry Eden's dialogue)

  4. Autumn: "You again. I can't say I'm surprised. You and your ilk seem hell-bent on destroying everything our government has worked to achieve. There's nothing to stop me from killing you this time. Let's end this."

  5. Autumn: "You're in a heap of trouble, kid. You're a traitor to the United States government. You know what happens to traitors, don't you?"

  7. Autumn: "Attention! This is Colonel Autumn! You are hereby ordered to ignore the President's previous directive. The prisoner from Vault 101 is to be shot on sight. I repeat, shot on sight. This is an order!"

    Whitley: "Dr. Grant? What the hell do you think you're doing?"
    Grant: "Ah, Whitley, there you are. Orders from Colonel Autumn - he feels the Eyebot Duraframe project isn't advancing quickly enough. I'm to-"
    Whitley: "You didn't even disengage his damage-avoidance protocols! You're hurting him!"
    Grant: "Don't be ridiculous, it's just a machine. See here, I've already increased the navigation system's efficiency by 65%."
    Whitley: "Get the hell out of here!"
    Grant: "Fine, Whitley, it's your lab. At least until I tell the Colonel about this."
