A Brother in Arms
NPC's for Fallout Independence
Dr. Oliver Freeman, the founder and Mayor of Independence. Dr. Freeman is a very idealistic man who used to be a Brotherhood of Steel Scribe. Though, due to conflicts of belief and morals, he left the BoS and for years traveled the wastes of the Mojave helping people in need, all the while dreaming of a place where people like him can separate themselves and live independent; leading him to the eventual formation of the town Independence. He specializes in Science, Speech, and Energy Weapons. The Mayor's personality is a very kind and caring one. He is willing to help any and all who are seeking it, and compassion like his is a rare thing in the Mojave. Though, he is by no means a pushover, for even though he is a kind man he is willing to do what he has to in order to protect him and his own, and is willing to give up his life to stand up for what he believes in. Dr. Freeman carries a Plasma Defender on him at all times, and owns a Laser RCW that he keeps in his home for emergencies.
Jebidiah "Jeb" Murdock, Independence's Sheriff, is a no-nonsense survivalist that does whatever he can to keep the streets of Independence safe. He appears cold on the outside, but truly cares about the town and its people. He specializes in Guns, Survival, and Lockpick. Sheriff Murdock's personality is one that is sometimes hard to read. He seems calm even in the most dire situations and can normally be seen donning the suspiciously sarcastic smirk that he is known for. He has a nose for trouble and treats everyone like equals, but never lets anyone get to close. He hasn't opened up to anyone in the town about his past before he came to Independence and not many would be willing to risk asking him due to his generally standoffish and intimidating demeanor. He carries two .357 Revolvers at his sides, one with a scope and the other without, as well as a lever-action shotgun which is draped over his shoulder with a sling.
T. L. Wolfgang, owner of the "The Hole", Independence's very own Motel, and Bar. Being called the luckiest man in the world, T. L. , or rather "Wolfgang" as he refers to himself, is a businessman through and through, capable of talking even the smartest man out of a few extra caps. He specializes in Speech, Barter, and Sneak. Some claim that he is a pickpocket and a thief, but he has never been caught in the act. He is one of the few people within Independence to be making a large profit, making him the richest man in Independence. Wolfgang's personality is very charming, sly, and witty; he is said to be so persuasive that he could've talked the Lone Wanderer into giving up his dog. He carries a 9MM Pistol and a Bowie Knife with a fancy handle that is seemingly engraved in gold.
Shaine Thomas, personal guard to Wolfgang and "The Hole". He is a very quiet man who takes his job very...very seriously. He has been loyal to Wolfgang from the very beginning, but whether that is because of the healthy amount of caps flowing his way from Wolfgang himself, or if there is a deeper reason for his faithfulness. He specializes in Guns, Unarmed, and Survival. His personality, other than being dry and serious, is somewhat of a mystery to the folks of Independence because he hasn't seemed to open up to anyone since the day of his arrival. He carried a sawed-off shotgun and a Marksman Carbine, but has a pack with him at all times that's contents are just as much a mystery as the man himself.
Lilly O'Haire, Wolfgang's bartender at the Hole. She is very seductive and desired individual. Her personality could best be described as a temptress, and she has been given the nickname "The Forbidden Fruit" by some of the townspeople, due to the fact that even with her promiscuous behavior, Wolfgang does not allow anyone to pursue relationships with her. Some think that the whole thing is a ruse to promote business, others that the two are romantically involved themselves; though no one can be sure. She wears a rather large locket around her neck where she secretly keeps a dosage of poison strong enough to kill a Deathclaw...just in case she needs it.
The Roann's. A family made up of father, Benjamin "Ben" Roann, the town "chef" and owner of the town's diner named The Meet'N'Eat, which he run's with his two teenage children Marry and Alex. Ben is an eccentric man with a humorous personality. He is always either cracking a joke, making a funny comment, or making people laugh with his less than spectacular attempts to pick up women. Marry is a very beautiful, sweet, ditsy, and sometimes less than bright girl who waits tables for her father and loves her family more than anything else. Alex cleans the tables at the family diner, but sadly, he suffers from some form of mental disability that makes it impossible for him to function normally in society; he seemingly has the mental capacity of a child, and constantly has to be under the supervision of his father or sister. He is a very curious young lad, which tends to get him in all kinds of strange predicaments. No member of the Roann family really carries any weapons, but they do own a large collection of kitchen knives and other utensils that could potentially be used to protect themselves.
Emanuel "Manny" Rawls Jr. and Sarah Morris, the local farmers of Independence. Manny took over the town's farm supply after his father passed away just a few short months ago, and since, his girlfriend Sarah has moved in with him and has begun helping out full time. Manny's personality used to be that of a cocky kid, who thought that he was invincible, but since the death of his father he has become slightly more withdrawn, and has taken his work very seriously. Sarah is little firecracker who loved Manny from the first moment that she saw him, and luckily for both of them the feeling was mutual. She is outspoken, blunt, and calls things like she sees them, and refuses to take shit from anyone, but the girl has a heart of gold when it comes to her lover as well as the town of Independence. They are both prominent farmers due to Manny's father teaching him young and him passing along that knowledge to his girlfriend once she moved in. Manny inherited two .32 pistols from his father, one which he carries himself, the other he has given to Sarah in order for her to defend herself.
Jimmy Collins, an orphaned boy who was taken into Independence when he had nowhere else to go. With him being afraid and alone, one would think that he would be more grateful to be taken in by a town such as our own, but rather he repays the town's kindness with a cocky, arrogant, and often times rude attitude. Wherever he goes, trouble seems to follow. Whether it's him trying to pickpocket a resident, starting a fight, or just his over-bearing mouthiness...young Jimmy simply seems to be a rotten apple, but Dr. Freeman, being the kind man he is, has given the young man a number of chances to change his ways, but even his patience is beginning to thin. No one knows why the boy acts the way he does, and while some have tried to get him to open up, he seems shut off to the idea and set in his ways. The only weapon he carries on him is an old switchblade, but he does carry a small metal sphere that he never let's out of his possession, yet no one knows anything regarding the thing.
The girl called Dallas, a young, deaf female that has recently come to Independence. Her name, or anything about her for that matter, is not known to any of the residents of the town. Many of the townspeople have taken to calling her "Dallas" due to the words being printed largely on the back of her pack. The girl has taken shelter in a room at the Hole, but has not been seen since checking in. When she first arrived, Dallas carried a full pack, with a sawed-off shotgun strapped to the side of it, as well as a large handmade machete that she keeps in a sheath at her side. Nothing else is known about her at present.
