Gametitle-VB.pngThe following is based on Van Buren and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

Elder Traci Niels is a Paladin of the Brotherhood of Steel in 2253.


Traci began her career in the Brotherhood as a scribe but tired of the technical side of life. She asked to be placed in a combat role and was given the chance to prove herself. She was found to be a competent combatant who also had the advantage of being able to repair equipment on the fly in the field. She worked her way up the ranks and soon earned the title of Elder.

Traci is a headstrong no holds barred kind of woman. She is opinionated, she knows it, and she doesn't care. She will often voice her opinion tactlessly whether or not it is asked for. She is considered a bitch by most anyone who knows her and she could care less.

Traci is not pleased with the base commander, Andrea Brixley. She finds her unorganized, flighty, and generally incompetent. She knows that, were it not for Glenn's careful attention, Andrea would fall apart. Traci would like nothing more than to replace the commander with herself and she has made this known to all. However, Traci is loyal to the Brotherhood and its line of command. She follows her commander's orders dutifully.
