Don't you know enough to stay away?

Officer Taylor is a member of Vault 101 security in Fallout 3.


When you first enter the atrium, you will witness Freddie Gomez arguing with him. Taylor will accidentally discharge his weapon, scaring Freddie off. He will then turn to you and begin a dialogue, even if you are in stealth mode behind him.

If asked "What happened down here?", he will explain that his wife Agnes died due to a heart attack from the excitement of the fighting. He definitely blames you and your father for the problems in Vault 101 during the Trouble on the Homefront quest, but is not overly hostile about it.[1]


Officer Taylor was married to Agnes Taylor.
