In the intro of Fallout:Brotherhood of Steel it states that there was a disagreement in the brotherhood and that the minority lost and were sent East to investigate. This effectively cut the BOS into 2 different branches. I remember that in Fallout 3 the BOS is in the Washington DC area and they don't tolerate mutants/deathclaws.

Is there any canon/fiction that states what happens when the Chicago BOS comes into contact with Washington DC (original) BOS?

Also, is the Washington DC branch the "original" branch or is there another one?

  • How would anyone know what would happen? This question seems to invite speculation more than facts. You might want to rephrase that question along the line of "Is there any information on the relationship of the two branches". – LarissaGodzilla Jul 4 '13 at 11:49

    The original Brotherhood of Steel is from California, the Washington branch is a liberal off-shoot – evilsoup Jul 4 '13 at 19:41
  • So if the original is from California is the one in Fallout :BOS actually the offspring that gets stranded in Chicago and keeps going towards Washington or is this not cannon? Kind of confused a bit here. – Cherubel Jul 4 '13 at 22:21
  • The original BOS did originate in the far west US, in the original Fallout game. There is certainly some amount of canon information available throughout the various franchise titles that details the origins and some differences between the various BOS factions. – Beofett Jul 4 '13 at 23:46
  • Don't forget about the Outcasts. AFAIK they never do meet, so no. – Mazura Jun 7 '14 at 1:11
