Ok, so there I was, minding my own business playing Fallout 4. It's mostly wandering around post-nuclear Boston, fighting ghouls, supermutants, and androids (here called synths). You also get to encounter several organisations. One of them is a military-like Brotherhood of Steel, devoted to fighting ghouls, supermutant, and synths; and led by a glowering, intense Elder Maxson:



You are actually introduced into the Brotherhood by a glowering, intense Paladin Danse, who becomes your sponsor and companion:



So far, so much like any game.

And then, after you visit the factory that produces synths, you suddenly get called in by the enraged Elder, who demands you track Danse down and kill him. Apparently, according to the factory records, the fanatically devoted soldier of the Brotherhood Paladin Danse, is a synth.

Which leads to this:



Now, excuse me Arthur (BTW, before this exchange you wouldn't have guessed the Elder even has a first name), but after your speech all I can think about is reading about machine and flesh intertwining.
I'll be on Ao3 :-)
