One of the few old world organizations to survive the Great War, the Enclave was once the government of the United States.They believed that as long as many of the United States population survived, they could regroup quickly and wipe out communism once and for all. Though not technically part of the Enclave, many powerful corporations benefited from the Enclave's actions and their research facilities were protected during the "firestorm" of 2077.
In 2073, as the global race to exploit the handful of remaining natural resources reached its fevered peak, the United States managed to peacefully stake a claim on the world's last known supply of crude oil, buried thousands of feet beneath the Pacific Ocean.
Poseidon Oil, a major U.S. energy concern, was contracted to build an oil rig and extract the oil. Before long, the oil ran dry and it was abandoned by Poseidon.
Come 2077, with total nuclear war rapidly arriving at America's doorstep, the President of the United States and a number of other United States government officials left their posts to take refuge in a number of secret locations around the world, taking with them as many people as possible. Among them was the Poseidon Oil Rig. Here, the President himself set up a secret base from which the U.S.A. could continue to exist and wage war on China, with the eventual goal of restoring the Unites states to it's former glory and saving the American citizens from exile.
Before the war began the Encalve forsaw coming events and acted quickly by building underground nuclear proof vaults. They didn't have a lot of time to work with so they could only build a select few, and American citizens where randomly picked fairly to be offered the chance to reside in a vault. The Vaults were funded by the U.S. government.
For a long time after the Great War, the Enclave sat quietly in its Oil Rig, consolidating its forces and working on gaining a technological advance to greater help the American people. Eventually, though, when they felt that they had the equipment needed to help, they decided it was time to move out and start working towards the rebirth of America. Using their rather impressive Vertibirds, the Enclave sent out scouting parties all over California, the closest state to the Oil Rig.
What they found there didn't stop their goal at all, even though mutation was rampant. The Enclave scouting parties arrived in California. And saw the super mutants and ghouls which had occured due to the war. When this was reported to the higher ups at the Enclave, it was decided that all the mutants would have to go.
Eventually, Enclave troops stumbled across the old abandoned Mariposa Military Base, where research on the Forced Evolutionary Virus had been done before the Great War. FEV was what created the super mutants that most threatened the Enclave, and it would eventually come to be the Enclave's solution to these same mutants.
The Enclave excavated the Military Base, largely using paid workers recruited from the nearby mining town of Redding, eventually finding the vats deep inside the lower levels of the base. Though they had been buried in rock and forgotten for decades, the Vats still contained that old familiar green bubbling gunk, Forced Evolutionary Virus. The Enclave gathered samples to be sent back to the Oil Rig for further analysis. Before long, though, the workers, some being fully exposed to raw FEV, others likely falling into the vats accidentally, began to mutate into a second generation of super mutants. The mutant slaves soon revolted, but the Enclave had this under control, although they had to leave due to other projects they had.
Even though things didn't go as planned, the Enclave still had the samples of FEV they needed. Back at the Oil Rig, the United States Chemical Corps began work on the serum immediately. They found that it would be possible to make from FEV an reverse mutagen to turn mutants back into humans. But, in order for research to progress, they would need volunteers. They needed two test groups: one of clean, pure humans and another composed of the slightly mutated humans that lived all over the mainland, suffering radiation and FEV exposure for decades that, to the Enclave, made them effective. They managed to gathered slightly mutated people from a nearby town/
The clean group would be more difficult to obtain though. Once again, the mainland provided the needed volunteers. The enclave enlisted the help of the residents of Vault 13. Before long, the Chemical Corps developed their antidote. It was found to be 100% effective to reversing tainted humans.
Just as the Enclave was preparing to launch the antitdote into the jet stream to reverse the entire population of the mainland, a communist known as the "Chosen One" arrived at the Oil Rig on the Poseidon Oil tanker that had sat in San Francisco for years. The Chosen One killed the survivors of both the Vault 13 population as well as the Arroyo tribals and started a self destruct sequence in the Oil Rig that destroyed the entirety of the Enclave's headquarters, Damning the world.
The destruction of the Oil Rig did not cause all of Enclave to be destroyed, as Navarro and other, smaller outposts on the mainland were able to survive.
The Enclave was not destined to die with the Oil Rig. Remaining West Coast Enclave forces, under the command of Colonel Augustus Autumn's father rallied to the command of a new, enigmatic President, John Henry Eden, and rallied to the facility of Raven Rock, on the East Coast. Previously employed as Presidential advisor and Raven Rock administrator, Eden took command of East Coast Enclave forces. For a further thirty years, the Enclave stayed shut up in Raven Rock, only sending out Eyebots to scout the wastes and transmit Enclave Radio to the denizens.
Now the Enclave is ready to restore the American dream yet again, and we'll need you.
