The Courier was just [[UnluckyEverydude a regular schmuck]] trying to make a living delivering packages before being ambushed by Benny and several Great Khans while delivering a ''particular'' package: a Platinum Chip. He/she takes two shots to the head but somehow manages to survive. The story is driven by the Courier's attempts to understand the meaning behind the attack and the significance of the Platinum Chip. Ultimately, the Courier gets to decide the future of the entire Mojave wasteland.

* ImAHumanitarian: The Cannibal perk allows you to feed on human corpses. Eat enough of them and you'll unlock the option to cut off some "Human Remains" to take with you as a food item for later. This can be taken to ExtremeOmnivore levels with the Ghastly Scavenger perk (which requires Cannibal), which allows you to feed on Super Mutant and feral ghoul corpses. Feeding a corpse or eating Human Remains causes you to take a karma hit (yes, even the feral ghoul that just gave you positive karma for killing it), and NPCs who witness the act will be horrified by your "crime against nature" and turn hostile.

** The first time players will probably notice this is the reaction of Boxcars, who's one of two survivors of the Legion's razing of Nipton. Boxcar has survived the Legion having decapitated a quarter of the town, crucifying the rest, and as he came second in [[SadisticChoice their lottery]], they left him alive but crippled. But even all that doesn't scare him as much as seeing the Courier walk in.

** You can even remove the "Cursed part by getting your original Brain, Heart and Spine back, but with some advanced tech remaining with them, and while some of the bonuses are reduced, some bonuses are actually increased. For example, the artificial spine gives the courier +1 strength and immunity to torso crippling, but with the real spine restored, that torso crippling immunity is toned back, but you actually get [i]Double the strength of the artificial spine.[/i]

* {{Badass}}: In general: at ''minimum'', the Courier takes two to the head and gets right back up. Depending on which quests you complete before meeting with Caesar, he'll {{lampshade}} it to a greater or lesser extent, listing some the Courier's more notable achievements such as walking into the Tops and capping Benny and up to four bodyguards and then walking right back out again, gaining entry to the Lucky 38 where nobody's been allowed for decades, and taking down the mysterious quasi-immortal EmperorScientist of Vegas and taking his place while loading his MechaMook army for bear in the process.
