In the Fallout Prime Video show, Lee Moldaver is the leader of the gang of raiders that have overrun Vault 32 and subsequently raided Vault 33 and kidnapped its Overseer, Hank.

This starts the protagonist Lucy’s quest to go outside the Vault to rescue her father. Thus, Moldaver seems to be the show’s main villain at the start.

Of course, as fans of the Fallout games will know, the Vault Overseers are far from saints. The series soon reveals that Moldaver isn’t an evil gang leader.

Moldaver reveals that the Vault Overseers are Vault-tec employees from over two hundred years ago, with Vault-tec being the ones who caused the Global War.

Thus, Moldaver isn’t exactly the villain of the series as her goal is to restore power to the New California Republic for her people.

Even if she died though, Moldaver revealed to Lucy that her father Hank detonated a nuclear bomb in Shady Sands, resulting in her mother becoming a ghoul.
