Research Assistant Robert Anderson was a soldier and the chief scientist at the Mariposa Military Base, and was the head of the Forced Evolutionary Virus human testing.[1]


On October 10, Spindel's soldiers discovered that the scientists at Mariposa were using military prisoners as test subjects in their experiments with the Forced Evolutionary Virus.[citation needed] Morale in the base dwindled, and Spindel suffered a mental breakdown, eventually committing suicide five days later.[citation needed] Roger Maxson, Spindel's second-in-command, assumed leadership.[citation needed]

Maxson captured Anderson and interrogated him, learning about the extent of his crew's actions.[citation needed] Anderson said that his orders came from the government, but Maxson did not believe him.[citation needed] He started screaming about how he was following orders, how he was a military man, but Maxson shot him, and the executions of the other scientists soon followed.[2]


One of the logs in the Vats control computer in Mariposa Military Base has Anderson's name, but his file has been corrupted and cannot be read.


Robert Anderson is mentioned in Fallout.
