It's unusual to find someone who can appreciate chemistry!

Miles is a chemist residing in Adytum in Fallout.


A thin man in a white smock,[1] the unassuming Miles is one of the strategic resources of Adytum. His scientific expertise enabled the settlement to prosper.[2] Among other achievements, he is responsible for setting up a water distiller that purifies water from the town's well, manufacturing primers and gun powder,[2] as well as cultivating fungi that provide necessary raw materials for the light industry in Adytum.[3] Miles' partner in industry is Smitty. Together, they manufacture ammunition, Adytum's primary export.[4]

However, Miles works on expanding the industry of Adytum, to make the settlement independent of food and raw materials delivered by Hub merchants (who use the reliance to their advantage). His largest project are hydroponic farms, which could allow for self-sufficiency.[4] He also works on obtaining strong acids for etching and permanent dyes and inks that would broaden the product line of Adytum.[5]

  1. 1.0 1.1 Miles: "{100}{}{You see Miles, the chemist of Adytum.}"
    "{101}{}{You see a thin man in a white smock.}"
  2. 2.0 2.1 The Vault Dweller: "{104}{}{That smock makes you look like a scientist. What are you studying?}"
    Miles: "{107}{}{I'm a chemist. Mostly, I make primer and powder so that we can re-use the brass casings from bullets. But I also dabble with some other chemicals.}"
  3. The Vault Dweller: "{109}{}{Where do you get the sulfur, potassium nitrate, and other chemicals?}"
    Miles: "{114}{}{It's unusual to find someone who can appreciate chemistry! But to answer your question, some of the materials we get from Hub merchants; others I manufacture or just find in the area. For instance, the dung heaps from the Brahmin are a good source, as well as some of the strains of fungus that I cultivate.}"
  4. 4.0 4.1 The Vault Dweller: "{108}{}{So you make bullets for Adytum.}"
    Miles: "{112}{}{Yes, although Smitty is the one who actually casts the bullets. I just refill the brass casings.}"
    The Vault Dweller: "{113}{}{But the Hub merchants make a profit off of you and the town.}"
    Miles: "{119}{}{Yes, well, we have to make a living. Since the hydroponic farms aren't functioning, we have to buy food from the merchants, and bullets are the only thing we have to sell.}"
    The Vault Dweller: "{120}{}{I could try to get the parts to fix the hydroponic farms.}"
    Miles: "{122}{}{Really? That would be wonderful! We're just missing a few parts, but I'm sure that if you could scrounge up the right pieces, we could be self-sufficient! Sammael might be able to give you some help.}"
  5. The Vault Dweller: "{110}{}{What other chemicals do you work with?}"
    Miles: "{115}{}{Well, I've been trying to get some strong acids so that Smitty can use them for etching. I also have been trying to make some permanent dyes and inks. But without access to natural inks, it's difficult.}"
