Query Response
Brotherhood, Steel "They claim a religious foundation, but lack that which would make them truly righteous. Their zeal is refreshing, however."
Cathedral, Children "The will of the Holy One brings a rebirth to the planet. We are His Children and carry out His plan."
Flame, Holy "The Holiest of Holies. He is the guiding light we follow. He shall cleanse those unfaithful when the Nexus of Rebirth is reached."
Hub "Like many other cities, they will embrace the moral leadership of the Cathedral."
Master "There is no Master but the Holy Flame. He is our master, He is the Master of all."

Unity "It is the uniting, by the Holy Flame, of all people, of all races and the cleansing of the heathens from this world."
Vats "I have never heard of such things."

Behind the scenes

  • Jain was originally supposed to summon a supermutant to abduct the player to the Vats, if they agree to follow the Children.



Jain appears only in Fallout as a talking head.

    Butch Harris: "{1130}{buth105a}{Jain's the High Priestess of the Children of the Cathedral and sets up the hospital here in the Hub.}"
  2. Fallout Official Survival Guide p.98-99: "Jain: Priestess Children of the of the Cathedral
    Jain believes completely in the doctrine and dogma of the Children of the Cathedral. She is devout, pompous, and fanatical, and can be quite stubborn. She refers to the Master as "the Holy Flame," and genuinely believes that what she and the Children are doing is right. She will try to persuade the player to join the Children, but she has no patience for people distracting her from her work.
    Be warned! If Jain summons a "counselor" to prepare you for your transition, that counselor will be a super-mutant who will take you to the vats. You must attempt to kill the mutant to escape if that happens, or kill Jain herself."
