Knight Captain Colvin is a Brotherhood of Steel member inside the Galaxy News Radio building in 2277.



A sniper in Lyons' Pride, Colvin is 40, friendly, and warm to everyone; he has priest-like tendencies. To him, combat is like worship, and he treats his rifle as a holy object and his targets as the unfortunate victims of his god's wrath . He says a prayer for the soul of each mutant he kills. He's extremely experienced, and completely unflappable: all according to God's will. [1]


Colvin is a member of the Lyons' Pride, which he considers his family

Interactions with the player character

After completing the player completes the Following in His Footsteps quest he returns to the Citadel.

Colvin has few dialog options, however he can be talked to. When speaking with Colvin, the player might find out that there is a slight competition with Knight Captain Dusk over who is the better shot.

Of all the Lyons Pride members, Colvin is the nicest to the player character upon first meeting them.

Aside from his initial appearance outside GNR, he appears in no subsequent quests or side missions, even those involving other Pride members.


"All clear Sentinel. Five Mutants released from their torment. The rest are keeping their heads down."
"My Brothers may be gruff, but they will lay down their lives for you."
"Let's see the outcasts do that."
"This looks like the main force. Many tormented souls will meet the Maker today. I will pray for forgiveness."


Knight Captain Colvin appears only in Fallout 3.

Behind the scenes

Knight Captain Colvin is likely a reference to the character Private Daniel Jackson (played by Barry Pepper) in the movie Saving Private Ryan. Like Colvin, Jackson is an army marksman who says a prayer before taking each shot.
