Well, I'm MacRae. I help the Blades some against the Deathclaws and that Regulator bunch. Teach'em a bit about protectin 'emselves against those nasties.

MacRae is a helpful man helping the Blades defend themselves in Fallout.


MacRae, a strong, stout man with a bushy beard,[1] is a bit of an oddity. Like Patrick, he sounds like a man from another planet to the wastelanders, with unmistakable Scottish influences in his manner of speaking. He is a martial artist, keeping the ancient art of pugilism (throwing punches and surviving them) alive and kicking. He helps out the Blades, as he considers them good people.[2] Certainly better than the Regulators, who often appear in the middle of the monthverification overdue, remove and drag a man away to stage an attack on Adytum.[3]

  3. The Vault Dweller: "{111}{}{What's the deal with the Regulators}"
