Albert is a charismatic leader of a small, vocal minority of the Vault population that is considering life on the outside world. Dedicated to the role of a negotiator, he is often able to communicate efficiently between different parties. His professed occupation is closest to what was once known as a "lawyer." Albert is often able to convince others that his ideas are correct.
The name of Albert may be a reference to the post-apocalyptic film "A Boy and his Dog". The titular dog, Blood, a psionically-gifted canine, often calls the titular boy "Albert" despite the fact that it is not his real name.
