Vault 53

Located in the southern Cascade Mountains near the ruins of Corvallis , the occupants of Vault 53 lived in comfort and safety, trading occasionally with Cleanwater and passing merchants. The overseer ruled fairly, and the vault could have acted as the poster-child for Vault-Tec. That is, until the raiders hit. Everyone was captured, raped, and slaughtered within the Vault. The only survivor was Nicholas Jefferson, and a Mr. Handy dubbed “Thundercleese” by Nick and the other denizens.

The vault was cleared of raiders by a small group of wastelanders from Cleanwater, though not entirely without consequence. The group was first captured by the raiders and, before escaping, Betty Waters was put in an unpleasant situation with an enamored raider.

Unknown to the wastelands at large is that Vault 53 is the source of water for Cleanwater, as a leak in its purification system is the “spring” that supplies the town.
