An overseer was the leader of a Vault-Tec Corporation vault. The overseers were often aware of the Vaults being an experiment and helped coordinate it.[1] The overseer served many purposes from mayor to (in some vaults) a sort of god. If the overseer disclosed the contents of the sealed orders or deviated from the experiment, it can be grounds for termination of employment from Vault-Tec.[2]
