If you're here to report a scorched sighting, we've got it handled.

Captain Oliver Fields is a former U.S. Army officer in Appalachia.

Background

Captain Fields has been fighting alongside his subordinates, Sergeants Fred Radcliff and Thompson, since the Resource Wars, and Radcliff credits his command as being responsible for his survival[2] - even stating that the captain is in dire need of a retirement.[3] The three were part of the original military team responsible for moving the gold reserves at Fort Knox to Vault 79. However, they were locked outside when the Vault closed due to the Great War.[4] Nevertheless, Fields, a die-hard patriot, refused to believe that America could have perished in the War, and chose to stick to their mission as best as possible.[5]

Equipped in their Power Armors,[2] they wandered the wasteland for years, always staying near Appalachia, returning only when they heard it was safe enough to return.[4] Before reaching Appalachia though, they ended up in the Pitt and attempted to save the civilians there, but while trying to get into his Power Armor, Fields was shot and wounded, and the team barely escaped thanks to their military working dogs Angel and Odysseus. They ruminated simply giving up their military lives, but were convinced to return to Appalachia after hearing again the broadcast from other military remnants.[2] They and their last remaining military working dog, Private Lucky, ended up tracking and observing the Settlers as both groups left the Pitt, bound for Appalachia. Now in West Virginia, the team agreed to meeting with the Vault Dweller at the ransacked bunker.[6][7]

  1. 1.0 1.1 Vault Dweller: "You're US Army? Where have you been?"
    Oliver Fields: "We've been heading back down from up north. Before you ask why it took so long, take a long hard look at your day to day in Appalachia. It's nice here. You've got it so good that I'd have wanted my momma to retire here. Giant bats, boo hoo."

  3. Vault Dweller: Do you know if you all are sticking around Foundation now?
    Fred Radcliff: Definitely. We all need a vacation... or just retirement. Fields needs retirement, for sure. He might not look as old as he is, but that's just all the preservatives in the junk food we've been living off of.
  4. 4.0 4.1 Vault Dweller: "How did you end up here?"
    Oliver Fields: "Thompson, Radcliff and I were all part of the team at Fort Knox that moved the gold here. The vault shut before we could get in though. We wandered the wasteland, always staying nearby. Once we heard it was safe, we came here. Damn glad we did too."
  5. Vault Dweller: "Hey, in case you didn't notice. America's over. Kind of got bombed."
    Oliver Fields: "Don't you know a lick of history from before the war? We've always been forged in fire. Maybe we got a bit burnt this time, but I can't believe it's the end."
  6. Vault Dweller: "What brought you here?"
    Oliver Fields: "We were given a mission at the end of the war that brought us down this way. Then we ran into the Foundation crew, north of here. They seemed like good folks, but we still had our mission to fulfill ... so we shadowed them for a while until that danger was over. No sense in putting them in danger, y'know? Seems like those days are finally done, though. No more missions. Just retirement. Bout damn time."
  7. Paige: "I had to reach out to some... specialists who've been shadowing us since the Pitt. They've all agreed to meet, but they want to talk to you first."
