open/close all folders
Ladies, Ladies... What you should really be concerned about... are the guns pointed at your heads right now.
Actor: Zack Frinfrock
A vault-dweller from Vault 10, a vault filled with overweight people, Twig searches the wastes of Nevada and California in search of the perfect "Nuka Break" with his friends, Ben and ScarAssociated tropes:
"This is the wastes, love is where you find it."
Actor: Tybee Diskin
A former slave in Caesar's Legion, Scar was saved by Ben and Twig when her new owner was seeking refuge from the desert heat while moving her across the Colorado River. The bounty on her head by the Legion proves to be the party's most dangerous problem.Associated tropes:
- Action Girl: She may have been a slave, but Scar is good with her Laser Rifle and packs a pretty good punch.
- Turns out Twig and Ben didn't save her. Twig was crying on the ground and Ben was severely injured. Scar broke herself free and saved them then sealed the cave with one of Ben's grenades.
- Bare Your Midriff: Her standard look.
- Despair Event Horizon: Crosses this in Season 2, Episode 4. After Bonnie tells Scar her story and Leon reminds her of just how far he's willing to go to keep Scar under his control, she gives up on being free again when she realizes how many people will suffer the more she resists. It's only on Bonnie's insistence does she escape the next episode, and isn't free of it until Leon finally dies.
- Damsel in Distress: Almost subverted, but ultimately played straight for most of Season 2. She makes an attempt to escape, but eventually gives up and is rescued by Larry and Ben.
- Doom Magnet: Due to her having a bounty by the Legion, and eventually becomes a source of angst as she realizes just how many people whose lives have been ruined due to her.
- Happiness in Slavery: Turns out she did have this. Leon bought, and legitimately freed her, and Scar stayed with him out of actual love. Then she learned about the Prophecy, tried running, and then was enslaved again, where she was considerably less happy.
- The Lancer
- Made a Slave: To Caesar's Legion in the past, before escaping.
- Morality Pet: To Ben
- Ms. Fanservice: Has a string of Stripperific outfits In the fan movie her costume was a midriff baring top combined with leg baring shorts. In the series a similar top combined with tight jeans until the middle of the second season when Leon dresses her in a Pimped-Out Dress(by Wasteland standards anyway) that shows some serious cleavage. At the end of the second season finale she switches to a more modest outfit.
- Only Sane Woman: Which considering that her companions are Twig and Ben isn't all that difficult.
- Tomboyish Ponytail: Until her Significant Haircut in Season 2 Episode 3
- Tragic Keepsake: Her Laser Rifle was a gift from the BOS Paladin that saved her.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: With Ben.
- Weapon of Choice: Her Tri-Beam Laser Rifle. Too bad bad Ben shot it.
"Here's how it's gonna work. You're going to call off your goddamn goons or I blow your head off!"
Actor: Aaron Giles
A ghoul with tendency to take what isn't his.Associated tropes:
- Accidental Hero: Vault 7's experiment was to see how long its inhabitants could survive without any medical personal. By killing a guard so his wife, a nurse, could enter the Vault, Ben saved dozens of lives.
- Badass: It's implied but it's not really seen until episode 5, when he sneaks away from his guards off screen and shoves his shotgun into the back of Larry's head.
Larry: "You were watching her, and WHO WAS WATCHING HIM!? "
- Belligerent Sexual Tension: He seems to have this with Scar, who is the only person he likes. That said, he and Scar fight constantly but he always apologizes to her but never to Twig.
- Comes to a head in Season 2, Episode 5 when Ben sacrifices himself to save Scar. Scar takes his death the hardest.
- Blatant Lies: When confronted by Ron, who hates NCR Rangers and Ghouls.
: And I'm not a Ghoul! *Beat
* Worth a try...
- Character Development: In episode 3, Ben shows disgust at his old friend selling Jet. We also learned he worked for Myron during Fallout 2 and left due to moral reasons. He's even hating himself for even considering taking this job from a drug-dealer, friend or not.
- The Fog of Ages: Ben's 200 years old and his failing memory is actually hinted at. While it's usually Played for Laughs (By Mennen!), there are also hints that Ben is at the early stages of what would be old age for a ghoul and is slowly losing his memory. He has problems remembering where Eastwood is and things he's said. It's because Ben is old enough now to start going Feral.
- Friendly Enemy: With Larry, with the implication they were once partner in crimes together. This also seems to be one of the reasons he's so reluctant to kill him, even when he has the opportunity to on multiple occasions, simply telling him to get lost instead.
- Heroic Sacrifice: To save Scar. And himself from Ferality.
- Also doubles as a Dying Moment of Awesome.
- We also get a subversion, when it's revealed that during the Great War, he fully expected to die in the Wasteland after he forced his wife into Vault 7 without him. However, he ended up surviving and becoming a Ghoul instead.
- Honor Before Reason: He lets Larry live despite trying to turn them into the Legion to pay off his debt to him Scar calls him out on it, but he points out that killing Larry isn't going to stop Leon from pursuing her and that they need to take him out instead.
- Jerk Ass: To pretty much everyone.
- Twig gets this badly from him as he has tried to irradiate Twig, get him fired from his job, shot, and coerce into blowing himself up to save him and Scar.
- The Ranger aka his Great-Great-Great-Great-Grandson even thinks of him as this.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He does care about Scar a lot and openly apologizes to her. He even rescued her from slavers!
- Killed Off for Real: Though considering his mental state and looming ferality, it was probably for the best.
- Kleptomaniac Hero: If it isn't nailed down, he tries to steal it. They get run out of Goodsprings because of this.
Ben: "Woo! Free Shit! YEAH!"
- McGuffin: The ring around his neck.
- Memetic Mutation: Like you didn't have "By Mennen!" stuck in your head after the first episode.
- Now in-universe as well, as Twig uses it as a curse.
- Mysterious Past: We don't know much about Ben's history, but the Season 1 finale reveals that an NCR Ranger has been protecting him (without his knowledge) and recognizes the ring he wears around his neck.
- Previews for Season 2 show Giles sans make-up with a mysterious female implying not only will we get Ben's backstory... but we'll get to watch and see what the Great War was actually like.
- It's revealed over the course of Season 2 that the Ranger is actually his descendant, Ben having killed a guard to get his wife to take his place in Vault 7, but being unable to join her due to his belief the fellow residents would hang them both since he was covered in blood.
- Stealth Pun: He'a a Ghoul who absolutely adores looting corpses. Another name for a battlefield looter is a "ghoul."
- The Hero: Is starting to seem to be the main protagonist as he has gotten the most character development, is an Ensemble Dark Horse of the series and season 1 ended with major implications about Ben's past.
- Token Evil Teammate: Not evil per se, but definitely more unscrupulous than Twig or Scar.
Ben: Screw it, I'll just join whoever survives.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: With Scar
- Weapon of Choice: A Hunting Shotgun.
The Ranger / James Eldridge
Ben: "What are you doing?"
The Ranger: "Protecting YOU!"
Actor: Camereon Diskin
Tanner & Co.
The villians of the original NukaBreak Fan Film. They are also NOT Talon Company.
"Did these punks just get the drop on us?"
Actor: Robert Thorne
The leader of Tanner & Co.Associated tropes:
"You're cramping my style!"
Actor: Michele Specht
Tanner's girlfriend and all-around crazy bitch. She's also the only one to survive the movie.Associated tropes:
"Oh shit, we did the pop-up thing"
Actor: Kevin Brooks
Third member of Tanner & Co.Associated tropes:
Characters from Fallout
John Henry EdenAssociated tropes:
"Have you ever considered that you're just a terrible courier?"
Actor: Jason Grasl
The owner of the Goodspring General Store.Associated tropes:
The Scholar/ Goris
"There is no fate. Only possibilities, and we have plenty of those."
A local expert and extremely knowledable man who helps the locals near Eastwood and the Lockre. He's Goris from Fallout 2.
Characters played by Vic Mignogna
- Poor Man's Substitute: Vic's a pretty big star in his own right but he's just not the same caliber as Ron Perlman (which is strange because they did manage to get his Hellboy costar Doug Jones).
- Unreliable Narrator: He describes things from Twig's point of view when discussing previous events, which are admittedly skewed.
"I traded my last bottle a couple a few days ago; got this fancy hat in exchange. It's adjustable."
A trader who gets in a random fire fight with Twig & Co.Associated tropes:
Old Man / Eastwood General Store Owner
"Nuka? No. Just Sunset."
Owner of the Eastwood General Store.Associated tropes:
The Mysterious Stranger
The character from the Fallout series that shows up to help to kill an enemy for the player character. He saves Twig from a radroach as thanks for handing him back his hat.Associated tropes:
- Badass: It's the Mysterious Stranger.
- Chekhov's Gunman / Brick Joke: A recent interview revealed that the entire intention of Season 1 was for this trope. Let me repeat that, he got an entire season made just to be this.
- Leitmotif: His signature cord returns AND Dan Martinez wrote an entire piece around it. You can listen to it here: . Doubles as a Crowning Music of Awesome.
- Nice Hat: Returning it to him gave Twig a free rescue from the stranger.
- No Kill Like Overkill: Mysterious Stranger vs. a Radroach. It's like sending Chuck Norris to beat up a baby.
- One-Scene Wonder: He's like this in the game, but it reached Memetic Mutation levels on Youtube. Just read the comments in Episode 3 & 6.
- Stealth Hi/Bye: Again, it's the Mysterious Stranger. He is powered by this trope.
- What Could Have Been: Season 1 was going to end originally with Leon and the Stranger facing off. No points for guessing how it would have ended.
"We lied, we're raiders."
- Bounty Hunter: They think they're raiding but one points out they're actually bounty hunting. This semantic makes it hard to tell what they are, despite what they are doing. Episode 2 reveals they were in fact bounty hunters.
- Hilarity Ensues: They're entire scene. They go from legitimate threat to bumbling morons in 10 seconds flat. And it's so memorable.
- Idiot Ball: They're not too smart...
- Interface Spoiler: Hillariously averted, Twig's VATS just says "Raiders?" when he targets them. That's right, they're so ambiguous, the interface that gives names for everyone is confused.
- Nice Hat: The one who gets vaporized has one. It survives.
- Redshirt: The raider Ben snipes at the beginning of episode one is named in the credits as "Raider Withoutachance."
Mayor Touch Conners
"I found a place to call my own... after I killed the worthless sack of shit who claimed it first."
The Mayor of Eastwood.Associated tropes:
Lawrence "Larry" Synder
"Well, well, well... if it isn't Benji."
Actor: Kevin BrooksAssociated tropes:
"Sir, we have reports of geckos by the brahmin pens."
Actor: Steven Dengler
The head of Eastwood's guards, and second-in-command to Mayor Connor. He's significantly more sane than his boss.
- Ascended Extra: In Season 2.
- The Cameo: He's the Associate Producer of the series, so he got a speaking role.
- He also was responsible for helping to fund the start up costs of the series.
- Number Two: Played with. He's Mayor Connor's trusted advisor and head of town security, but Mayor Connor is somewhat insane and Raz seems to be the one with the most control.
- One-Scene Wonder: His name is never mentioned in the episode outside the credits. Considering nearly 3 episodes were cut and the 6th was heavily edited he may have been intended to have a larger role in the series. Too bad that wildfire destroyed Eastwood.
- Averted, in a recent interview. He will be back for Season 2 with a backstory role.
An abandoned Lockreed
munitions plant near Eastwood.
"The only thing I hate more than a Ghoul is a Ranger!"
The leader of The Lockre. A former Brotherhood of Steel Paladin who's platoon was wiped out by Leon when he destroyed Scar's hometown.
Actress: Anna Rose Heyman
A Followers Of the Apocalypse Doctor at the Lockre who takes an interest in Twig.
Chris and Tim
"Hi, I'm Chris, this is Tim."Those Two Guys
played by the fathers of the Fallout series.
- Creator Cameo: Of the series the show's based on, no less!
- The Danza
- Joke Character: Two random Eastwood natives armed with a baseball bat and BB gun respectfully. Chris even holds his bat by the wrong end.
- Lethal Joke Character: In the finale, they still manage to successfully draw the fire of Leon's men and aid the heroes ins dispatching them.
- Those Two Guys: They do pretty much nothing in the story except be laughably incompetent.
"Your incompetence is disgusting to me."
Actor: David CastroAssociated Tropes
- Affably Evil: He owns slaves and is high ranking in the Legion, but Leon is actually fairly nice about it. He doesn't kill his men if they can at least show some responsibility for their actions, has a nice smile and is actually shown as being somewhat forgiving, which is unheard of in the Legion.
- His entire scene when he talks to Larry is this.
Leon: (Cheerfully) "Hi Larr. My little wayward spy. I suppose you didn't capture Scarlet like you intended.
Larry: "No, Leon. I OBVIOUSLY did not.
Leon: (somewhat sadly) "Mhm. Well, that's a shame. Larry... You know what I do to people who fail me. Give me one good reason why I shouldn't do that to you."
Larry: "I know where they are."
Leon: (unconvinced) "Uh-huh."
Larry: "You have to give me a second chance, because I can bring her to you."
Leon: "Well where are they?"
Larry: "South of here. I set up an ambush for her and her friends but-"
- Authority Equals Asskicking: He's nigh-unstoppable in melee combat.
- Badass: Scares the crap out of his men and slaves, is implied to go through with overkill on his objectives, freaks out his scary black guy, and destroyed Eastwood with his fat man, Artemis, from a mile away.
- Bad Boss: Failure among his subordinates is punished with crucifixion. When Scar holds Daniels hostage, he offers to help her slit his throat.
- Because Destiny Says So: He's so obsessed with Scar because he has interpreted a prophecy to mean that their son will conquer the West. Everyone else thinks he's full of shit.
- Big Bad
- Creepy Monotone: Leon has this going on despite being emotional with his voice. Really
- Dangerously Genre Savvy: See his quote about dealing with Eastwood.
Leon: "When hunting foxes, take away the nest. Fox can't go home."
- Even Evil Has Standards: See Affably Evil above.
- Expy: Of Legate Lanius. According to Red Star, he actually is a Legate.
- General Ripper: It's unclear who or what he really is. All the audience knows is that he commands Legionaires and he is extremely wealthy in the Legion. He's also not hesitant to kill his right-hand man.
- Good Hair, Evil Hair: We know from the cartoon slide that he has a beard. Sadly, it's not a goatee.
- I Call It "Vera": Artemis, his Fat Man.
- Knight of Cerebus: The story gets a lot more serious once he becomes directly involved in the plot.
- Nuclear Weapons: To Eastwood. Although this was done to explain why Eastwood's set burned down.
- Screw the Rules, I Make Them!: He's a high ranking official in the Legion, yet he drinks. This isn't actually all too uncommon in the Legion as a Centurion in Fallout: New Vegas is a known booze hound.
- Stalker with a Crush / Yandere: Big time towards Scar. The guy honestly seems to believe that by doing the most horrific things imaginable, such as nuking Eastwood and wiping out her hometown to prevent her from going home are, he's proving his level of devotion to her. Scar is understandably horrified by this.
- Surrounded by Idiots: He knows it, but they are still useful for him. In a funny twist, the idiots know their idiots too.
Larry: "Leon is looking for me."
Red: "So? Leon's looking for everybody! Thank god, he thinks I'm dead."
- You Have Failed Me: It doesn't have the payoff it usually does, but Leon makes it clear he's NOT above crucifying his own men.
Leon: "Larry... You know what I do to people who fail me. Give me one good reason why I shouldn't do that to you."
"What would you have me do, my lord?"
Actor: Howard McNairAssociated Tropes
Leon's Bodyguards (Neil & one unnamed guard)
"Forgive me sir, but we bring news from Nevada."
Actors: Phillip Agresta & Christopher TroyAssociated Tropes
"...and can you give me back the scissors? Thank you."
Leon's Slave and companion. Her servitude to Leon was caused by Scar's escape when he razed her hometown for troops and slaves.
- The Danza: Bonnie Bower playing a slave named Bonnie.
- Early-Bird Cameo: She appears in Episode 4 of Season 1 in a non-speaking role. She has a bigger role in Season 2.
- Fire-Forged Friends: Eventually with Scar.
- Genre Savvy / Hyper Awareness: Despite Scar stealthily sneaking the scissors away without her seeing the theft, Bonnie politely asks for them back, knowing that Scar would try to use them as a weapon and try to make an escape attempt.
- Happiness in Slavery: Subverted, while she's not unhappy in slavery, but she mostly just wants to go home.
- The Woobie: Her hometown was subjugated and razed to the ground by Leon.
Characters debuting in Red Star
Actor: Erik Denton A Super Mutant slaver. He purchased Becca from Leon Swallow.Associated tropes:
- BFG: Opens up on the Ranger with an M-60 before closing and beating him into a pulp with his fists.
- Happiness in Slavery: All of his slaves except for Becca. According to Becca, he treats his slaves well and that none of the others would have wanted to leave even if the Ranger had tried to rescue them.
- Misplaced Super Mutant: Oddly, he has the smooth lime-green skin of a Vault 87 super mutant, rather than the darker, pebbly skin of a Mariposa super mutant.
- Walking Spoiler: Uh-huh.
- Weaksauce Weakness: Obsessed with finding Nuka Cola Red Star bottlecaps. He trades Becca to the Ranger for one that her mother gave him.
