Loxley is the head of the Thieves' Guild, located under a building in the Oldtown section of the Hub. Loxley pretends to have an English accent, even though he's not really English. He probably read a children's version of Robin Hood in his formative years. His real name isn't even Loxley [1].

When the Vault Dweller found the Thieves' Guild hideout in the basement by avoiding mines and unlocking doors, Loxley asked him to join the Guild by completing a test. The test was to infiltrate Daren Hightower's house and steal his necklace. If the player succeeds, he is given some gifts from the Guild and becomes its member.

Loxley reveals that the Guild usually avoids any business with Decker.

Appearances in games

Loxley appears only in the original Fallout. He is a Talking Head voiced by Jeff Bennett in the original. Loxley's English accent, mannerisms and derring-do behaviour are strongly reminiscent of Robin Hood. His fake/fading accent may be a reference to Kevin Costner's own constantly-disappearing accent in the film Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves in which Costner plays the titular character. His name may also be a reference to the village of Loxley, the alleged birthplace of Robin Hood.
