Content of the article: "My argument about why Deacon from Fallout 4 is NOT the Lone Wanderer."
I noticed ever since Fallout 4 came out that there's a theory that the Railroad member and possible companion Deacon, is the Lone Wanderer, and for some reason that really bothers me so today I'm going to disprove that theory and debunk the reasons why Deacon could be the Lone Wanderer.
Claim 1 – When Deacon is a companion he mentions making a team name called Code Violet, if you didn't know this was Harkness' override code in Fallout 3.
People like to point out that the only way that Deacon could know this is that he is the Lone Wanderer, however this is likely not the case, as a high-ranking member of the Railroad he would likely already know Harkness' recall code in the back of his mind and thought it was cool enough to have as a team name.
Claim 2 – The Lone Wanderer was 19 at the events of Fallout 3 and would be 29 as of the events of Fallout 4, Deacon seems to be in his late 20s meaning Deacon could possibly be the Lone Wanderer, as Deacon and the Lone Wanderer's ages match up.
Most likely a coincidence, there are a lot of people in their late twenties in the wasteland, and Deacon probably just happens to be one of them.
Claim 3 – His codename 'Deacon' is a product of of both the Biblical references in Fallout 3 and on how his father (James) wanted to 'Deacon' the water in Fallout 3 making him the Lone Wanderer.
Probably not true as keep in mind Deacon is probably a joke on how the Railroad's HQ is under a christian church and that Deacon is a mid-ranking level of status within christian hierarchy.
Other reasons on why Deacon is not the Lone Wanderer.
-He hates the Brotherhood of Steel.Why would the Lone Wanderer hate the Brotherhood of Steel, especially since that the BoS has done so much for them and the Lone Wanderer has done so much for them.
-Deacon's white while the Lone Wanderer is either Black or mixed considering how Catherine is Black and James can be any race (White, Black, Asian, Hispanic, etc) and even with all of the facial re-construction Deacon went through, last time I checked you can't change your race.
-The Railroad has had records of Deacon even before the Lone Wanderer emerged from Vault 101.
So in conclusion I would say that while Deacon is most likely either from the Capital Wasteland or visit's it frequently, he is not the Lone Wanderer, though I wouldn't be surprised if he knew the Lone Wanderer personally.
