Glory to Atom, brother/sister. You must be the one Richter sent out to the spring. Don't appear to have turned into a slobbering goon, so I'm guessing you had a favorable experience. What visions did holy Atom bless you with?

Zealot Theil is an enforcer of the Children of Atom at The Nucleus.


Theil is the highest ranking Zealot after Grand Zealot Richter, whose job is to ensure the fitness of other Zealots in their fight against the unbelievers.[1] She comes from a family of homesteaders who tried to survive in the Fog. She lost her family when a massive radiation storm hi the island, killing her parents and leaving her the sole survivor. After wandering for days, she came to Atom's Spring and drank from its waters. Suffering a hellish vision, she was ultimately found by Grand Zealot Richter, who nursed her back to health and raised her to serve Atom. Her latest task was locating the errant Sister Gwyneth and bringing her to justice: Something she has failed to do and what eats away at her constantly.[2]

  1. The Sole Survivor: ""
    Theil: "I'm the Grand Zealot's second. It's my job to ensure the Zealots are fit for the conflict to come against all those who offend Atom."
    (Theil's dialogue)
  2. The Sole Survivor: "Atom ever grant you any visions?"
    Theil: "Sort of. My parents were settlers, tried to carve out a life for us in the Fog. Moved us all out there when I was just a girl. We made due for a couple of years. Atom's veil hadn't claimed the whole of the island back then. But then... came the storm. A rad storm unlike anything the island had ever seen. Our little homestead didn't have a chance. I was the only one to survive, thanks to my blessing. Atom's blessing. I wandered for days, living off whatever I could scrounge, drinking puddles and salt water. Until I stumbled on a spring. The spring. The vision I had... felt like it lasted for days. I was back in the storm, but I wasn't afraid. I was in control. When I finally came to, I was in Richter's arms. He carried me back here and raised me to serve Atom."
