The Brotherhood does its best, but sometime's it takes a little something... special. That's where the Lyons' Pride comes in.Sarah Lyons

Lyons' Pride (commonly abbreviated as the Pride) is a tactical unit comprised of elite soldiers from Lyons' Brotherhood of Steel in Fallout 3.[1][2][3][4] The Pride is tasked with the suppression of Super Mutant activity within the Mall and Chevy Chase areas of Washington, D.C.[5][Pub 1]


Lyons' Pride was formed by Elder Owyn Lyons to combat the growing super mutant presence in the Washington, D.C. area and later combat the Enclave forces as well.[5][Pub 2] The group is headed by his daughter, Sentinel Sarah Lyons, who personally chooses those that may join Lyon's Pride from a list of applicants.[2][3][4][6]

The Pride operates primarily out of Galaxy News Radio Outpost in Chevy Chase after agreeing with the station manager Three Dog to offer protection to the station to keep the radio station broadcasting and cut through the Enclave Radio dominating the airwaves.[7][Pub 1] However, the group also has a private area within the A-ring of the Citadel called the Lyons' Den, which includes a barracks and common room.

In 2277, during a mission to reinforce the standing troops at the Galaxy News Radio Outpost from increased super mutant attacks the Pride lost two initiates: Reddin and Jennings.[6][8][Pub 3] The Pride later participated in the battle of Project Purity alongside Liberty Prime and the Lone Wanderer. During this battle, Sentinel Lyons and the Lone Wanderer entered the Jefferson Memorial and the purifier code was inputted to activate the Project Purity purifier without the Modified FEV, resulting in an explosion that incapacitated all present parties.[9][10][11]

Two weeks after the Battle of Project Purity,[12] Paladin Tristan, now in charge of Lyons' Pride while Sentinel Lyons recovered from her injuries,[13] aided the Lone Wanderer on many missions including an attack on a Satellite Relay Station controlled by the Enclave,[14] the acquisition of a Tesla Coil from the Olney Powerworks,[15] and instructing them during the Battle of Adams Air Force Base.[16] Following the destruction of Mobile Base Crawler, Sentinel Sarah Lyons aided the exfiltration efforts of the Lone Wanderer onboard Pride One.[17]


The Lyons' Pride insignia differs from that of the Brotherhood of Steel standard. In place of the three gears, the Lyons' Pride shows a lion rampant imposed over the upper sword blade, inside the span of the wings.[18]


Each permanent member of Lyons' Pride is equipped with a set of T-45d power armor emblazoned with the Lyons' Pride insignia on the pauldron, replacing the standard Brotherhood of Steel insignia. The weapon variety among members of the Pride range from Sniper Rifles and Plasma Rifles to Super Sledges and Gatling Lasers, though the most common weapon is a Laser Rifle.

Between the conflicts at Project Purity and Adams Air Force Base, Lyons' Pride gained access to a captured Enclave Vertibird, referred to as Pride One.[19][20]




The Lyons' Pride appears only in Fallout 3. The surviving members appear again in the Broken Steel add-on.

Behind the scenes

  • The group's name is a play-on-words of "lion's pride." A 'pride' being the collective name for a group of lions.
  • In the Fallout 3 Official Game Guide Game of the Year Edition, Knight Artemis is listed as a member of Lyons' Pride.[Pub 8]



  1. The Lone Wanderer: "What can you tell me about the Lyons' Pride?"
    Dusk: "We're the most elite tactical unit ever assembled in the Brotherhood of Steel, here or anywhere else. Hell, ain't nothin' Sarah's cubs can't handle."
    (Dusk's dialogue)
  2. 2.0 2.1 The Lone Wanderer: "What can you tell me about the Lyons' Pride?"
    Glade: "You my friend, are talking about the most elite fighting force ever assembled within the Brotherhood of Steel. Each of us was handpicked by Sentinel Lyons herself. You can't even realize what an honor that is. Sarah defines combat excellence."
    (Glade's dialogue)
  3. 3.0 3.1 The Lone Wanderer: "What can you tell me about the Lyons' Pride?"
    Kodiak: "Ah, see, the Brotherhood's one thing, but the Pride... Best of the best. Every damn one of us. Hand picked by Sentinel Lyons herself."
    (Kodiak's dialogue)
  4. 4.0 4.1 The Lone Wanderer: "What can you tell me about the Lyons' Pride?"
    Sarah Lyons: "It's the best of the Brotherhood, bar none. No one gets in without my say-so."
    (Sentinel Lyons/Dialogue)
  5. 5.0 5.1 5.2 The Lone Wanderer: "Who did you say you were again?"
    Sarah Lyons: "The name's Sarah Lyons, Sentinel and squad commander of the Lyons' Pride. We're with the Brotherhood of Steel. We do our best to hold back the Super Mutants in this area. But when civilians stumble into our sights, that gets a bit difficult. Doesn't it?"
    (Sentinel Lyons/Dialogue)
  6. 6.0 6.1 Citadel terminal entries; Citadel personnel terminals, Lyons' Pride Recruiting
  7. Wilks: "Welcome to the Galaxy News Radio Outpost. I'm Sergeant Wilks, and I'm in charge here. What brings you into the D.C. area?"
    The Lone Wanderer: "What's the Brotherhood doing here?"
    Wilks: "We have a relationship with the station here. We stay in this reinforced structure, and protect it from the Super Mutants. This is the only real safe spot in the ruins of D.C. The rest of the place is crawling with those walking abominations. It's nice to have a port in the storm, you know?"
    (Wilk's dialogue)
  8. Sarah Lyons: "Jennings? "
    Vargas: "Negative."
    (Sarah Lyons and Vargas' dialogue)

  10. The Prydwen terminal entries; Proctor Quinlan's terminal, The Rise of Elder Maxson
    "When Elder Owyn Lyons died, care of young Arthur Maxson passed to Sarah Lyons, Owyn's daughter, who was then named Elder in his place. But when Sarah fell in battle shortly thereafter, things became complicated."
  11. Lone Wanderer: "What happened? How did I get here?"
    Elder Lyons: "You were brought back to the Citadel after some sort of energy spike in the purifier. You and Sarah were both knocked unconscious. Quite a bit has happened since then"
    (Elder Lyons' dialogue)
  12. Lone Wanderer: "How long was I out?"
    Elder Lyons: " Just about two weeks. Don't worry. We've been taking good care of you."
    (Elder Lyons' dialogue)
  13. 13.0 13.1 The Lone Wanderer: "So you're in charge now, huh?"
    Paladin Tristan: "Until Sarah gets back on her feet, I'm running the Pride. It's just temporary. But for now, I'm calling the shots. We were just about to mobilize, since everything's in place."
    (Tristan's dialogue)
  14. Events of Death From Above
  15. Lone Wanderer: "Olney? No, I don't think so."
    Paladin Tristan: "I'm sorry, perhaps there was a misunderstanding. I'm not asking you to go. I am, as your superior officer, ORDERING you to go. This is your assignment. You are to proceed to the Olney Powerworks. Once there, you are to locate and acquire a Tesla Coil, and return to the Citadel with it. Now get moving."
    (Tristan's dialogue)
  16. Orders
  17. Sarah Lyons: "Surprised to see me?"
    The Lone Wanderer: "I'll say! You look much better."
    Sarah Lyons: "Well, we both have the Pride to thank for that. Without them, we'd both be dead. But enough about me. You've done one hell of an outstanding job out here, soldier. A hell of a job! Now it's time to do my job and to get your ass onto this Vertibird before it goes up like a nuke."
    (Sarah Lyons' dialogue)

    (Brotherhood of Steel Pilot/Dialogue)
  20. Lone Wanderer: "So, what happens to the Brotherhood now?"
    Scribe Vallincourt: "I've got just piles and piles of Enclave technology to take apart and put back together. Who do you think got our captured Vertibird flying? Now let me get back to work before Rothchild assigns me trash detail."
    (Vallincourt's dialogue)
  21. Lone Wanderer: "So what's your job in the Lyons' Pride?"
    Glade: "Me? Heavy weapons. Miniguns, Missile Launchers... If it's bigger than a human and goes boom, I'm all over it."
    (Glade's dialogue)
  22. The Lone Wanderer: "What's your combat specialization in Lyons' Pride?"
    Sarah Lyons: "Hell, I do it all. Recon, demolition, tactical assault. Guess you could say I'm the Pride's jack of all trades."
    (Kodiak's dialogue)
  23. 23.0 23.1 The Lone Wanderer: "What do you do here?"
    Dusk: "I'm a sniper with the Pride. Put any mutie bastard within one mile of me and my rifle and, well... pack it up troops. Fight's over. Colvin thinks he's a better shot. Man's delusional."
    (Dusk's dialogue)
  24. The Lone Wanderer: "So what's your specialty in the Lyons' Pride?"
    Irving Gallows: "Spec ops. Let's leave it at that."
    (Irving Gallows' dialogue)
  25. Sarah Lyons: "The Pride and I have decided that after all you've survived, you've done enough to be an honorary member of Lyon's Pride. So congratulations. Membership comes with some privileges, including our Power Armor. You want the full suit, or the Recon armor?"
    (Sarah Lyons' dialogue)
  1. 1.0 1.1 Fallout 3 Official Game Guide Game of the Year Edition p.96: "SENTINEL SARAH LYONS"
    "Sarah, 26, was born in the West Coast Brotherhood of Steel headquarters. At the age of seven, she accompanied her father on his journey east to the Capital Wasteland (her mother having died several years earlier). Sarah Lyons is Brotherhood through and through, as dedicated and decorated as her father when he was younger. She commands a group of soldiers assigned to patrol the Washington, D.C., Mall area and operates out of the G.N.R. studio outpost."
  2. Fallout 3 Official Game Guide Game of the Year Edition p.77: "ELDER OWYN LYONS"
    "Lyons, 75, was already highly decorated when he set out from the order's West Coast headquarters, leading a party of soldiers on a mission to reestablish contact with the 'Eastern Brotherhood.' He discovered this abandoned Pentagon military complex. The presence of Super Mutants sent a chill up the collective spine of the Brotherhood; these weren't the children of the dreaded Master, nor were they the remnants of the band that fled east and were ultimately destroyed (or assimilated into the Brotherhood of Steel) in the Chicago area. No, this was a new breed of Super Mutant, one with a local origin. But where did they come from? What did they want? How were they reproducing? Elder Lyons was ordered to discover the source of this new Super Mutant infestation and wipe it from the face of the earth. Recent weeks have seen him galvanize his 'Pride' to thwart the remnants of the Enclave forces, and to provide drinking water to all."
  3. Fallout 3 Official Game Guide Game of the Year Edition p.77: "INITIATE JENNINGS"
    "Unfortunately, Paladin Vargas, whose job is to train initiates and steer them away from heavy fighting, has failed in this responsibility. His oversight has recently resulted in an attack on a ground of Brotherhood of Steel Initiates. Initiate Jennings bore the full brunt of a Super Mutant attack, and recently succumbed to the wounds."
  4. Fallout 3 Official Game Guide Game of the Year Edition p.90: "PALADIN VARGAS"
    "The sergeant of Lyon's Pride, Vargas is 30, and a no-nonsense, professional type. He is Sarah's right hand man; she relies on him for his experience and advice, and he supports her and mentors her. There is a very close but mostly unspoken friendship between them. He is no relation to Nathaniel Vargas of Megaton."
  5. Fallout 3 Official Game Guide Game of the Year Edition p.89: "PALADIN GLADE"
    "Paladin Glade is the oldest member of Lyon's Pride and serves as the group's technician and smith. But it's a well-known fact that Glade is also the most well-rounded and experienced Paladin in the Pride and is not to be trifled with. He's a badass, so don't mess with him."
  6. Fallout 3 Official Game Guide Game of the Year Edition p.80: "KNIGHT CAPTAIN COLVIN"
    "A sniper in Lyon's Pride, Colvin is 40, friendly, and warm to everyone; he has priest-like tendencies. To him, combat is like worship, and he treats his rifle as a holy object and his targets as the unfortunate victims of his god's wrath. He says a prayer for the soul of each mutant he kills. He's extremely experienced, and completely unflappable: all according to god's will. He can be found guarding Galaxy News Radio from Super Mutants."
  7. Fallout 3 Official Game Guide Game of the Year Edition p.80: "KNIGHT CAPTAIN IRVING GALLOWS"
    "Gallows is the Pride's scout and stealth expert. He's a quiet, kind of creepy man who isn't much liked by the Brotherhood members beyond the Pride. It's been said that if an enemy is in the field and sees Gallows, he's already dead. Gallows tends to disappear from time to time, which only adds to the mystery surrounding him. But it is well known among the other members of Lyons's Pride that Gallows is actually out hunting and killing Super Mutants. At least, they HOPE they're Super Mutants...."
  8. Fallout 3 Official Game Guide Game of the Year Edition p.59: "Note
    This census is alphabetical by the name each denizen prefers. For example, Knight Artemis (one of Lyon's Pride's finest warriors) is listed under 'K' rather than 'A.'"
