Rough Concept for a Fallout Fusion Fic (Need Help):

- Those NCR troops you've mentioned above, who are My Country Right Or Wrong and Honour Above Reason - why not make a whole squad out of them? You can contrast them with another squad of Rangers, who only care about shooting things, led by a Holier Then Thou Knight Templar.
- A tribe similar to Reavers from Fallout Tactics, mixed with Orthodox Christian and maybe Islamic vibes - they revere pre-war technology, as it was saved by their deity to help them live in the Wasteland. If Brotherhood of Steel has any significant role in your fic, they could be this. If you are reminded of Technomagi from W H40k, then you have the right idea.
- Another tribe, or an organization, either neutral or working for Ceasar. Basically slaver Bene Gesserit - they capture people against their will, yes, but then breed them to be better, stronger, smarter, etc, so their descendants could inherit the Wasteland. The "breeds" of this tribe could be respected as highly-professional warriors, workers, geishas, or whatever they were trained as.
- A "Moral Antagonist" of sorts, who could be one of those Decent Devout Christians. To make this a complete counterpart, make him a male. As I understand, Chun Li is a martial artist, so you might make him a non-combatant, occasionally helping her and other people. In Fallout terms, imagine a char with 10 Luck, maximum Speech and Jinx perk (if you remember it from F2 * ); weapon skills wimpy and lower, and two out of the following three on average level: Medicine, Science, Survival. His argument to stick with NCR would be that the New Rome will fall, just like the old one did, and that Chun Li's efforts are better spent elsewhere - depending on the details of her adventures. But I don't think this will work if he preaches too much. They could have a "Your gods did nothing to me" attitude towards each other: "Why follow something that's an empty idol?" For bonus irony, he could get killed by the Knight Templar from the Ranger squad above.

You need to Get Known to get one of those.
