Characters from the base game
Tropes specific to the player character in the The Someguy Series storyline.
- Badass Longcoat: You receive one, named "Bounty Hunter Coat" (visually identical to the Regulator Duster from the games) after joining Randall & Associates at the start of Bounties I.
- Bounty Hunter: New Vegas Bounties storyline consists in becoming one, and Russell storyline consists in teaming up with another to help him chasing his own bounty.
- Buried Alive: In the finale of III, after crippling the Courier, Marko shuts them inside a coffin then buries it in the middle of nowhere.
- The Dreaded: It goes almost without saying, this being the main character of a fallout game, but it's also especially apparent as the series progresses. People get more and more terrified of you, to the point that at one point, a bounty target even commits suicide rather than face you.
- Gameplay and Story Integration: In proper gameplay, the hand injury and severe beatdown you receive at the end of of NVB III results in temporary reduced SPECIAL stats, and then a permanent reduction of the attack speed.
- Gameplay and Story Segregation: In III, when you join Randall in Utah, you receive clothes (an armor and a hat) which fit better the winter setting than whatever you were wearing in the Mojave. Not wearing them doesn't have any consequence.
- Hello, [Insert Name Here]: When refering the Courier, Fictional Documents don't call it "the Courier" but mention their real name (i.e. the one entered at character creation).
- Impaled Palm: Marko does this to the Courier in NVB III, resulting in what is intended to be a Career-Ending Injury.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Sergios death at the hands of the Courier is the cause of Markos return.
- Reality Ensues: During NVB III finale, the ordeal inflicted by Marko to the Courier results in a severe debuff which lasts until you leave Utah for good. The hand injury then becomes turns into a perk which reduces attack speed (though this is balanced by increased damage.)
Leader of Ranger Station Charlie who was out on patrol when the legion hit the station. He is now looking to get revenge on the Legion.
- Ascended Extra: He was a minor character in the base game who was never seen and was only mentioned briefly by Comm Officer Stepinac whom someguy built a small quest around.
Introduced in King Of The Ring
The owner of Dempsey's Gym, who wants to organize a Pre-War-grade boxing scene in New Vegas. A foul-mouthed ghoul with little to no respect for new contenders.
- Jerkass: All his dialogue when you tell him you want to fight amounts to : "The next fighter sucks ass/kicks ass and is going to wreck your shit, so try to not get flattened too fast" and "You won, take your prize money and get outta here" when you win. In fact, his greeting dialogue switches from an angry "What the fuck do you want" to a grumpy "What is it" only after you won half a dozen matches.
- Named After Somebody Famous: Jack Dempsey
- The Nicknamer: He always refers to you as a "tomato" to show his lack of confidence in you. Even when you take on his champion.
- If you complain about the nickname he gives you he'll instead nickname you "rimjob" for the rest of the mod.
- Serious Business: The man loves his boxing very much.
- Take That!: When asked why he installed his gym in a remote place instead of Freeside or New Vegas, he replies that more often than not, in the more frequented places, someone will come complain about how they own your building and want to transform it, even if it's for ridiculous purposes. This is a subtle jab against some elements of the modding communitynote .
Introduced in The Inheritance
Mercenary working in Westside as a guard, whose dying father orders the Courier to send a package to him.
- Dark and Troubled Past: He spent his youth in New Reno as an orphan who did what was necessary to survive and later worked for the Bishops as a drug dealer until he beat up a maid man of the Mordino's and was forced to leave the city.
- Deadpan Snarker: One of the most sarcastic characters in the entire Someguy Series in fact.
- Defiant to the End: With high speech skill, Courier can convince him to spite Zimmer one last time by commiting suicide, rather than letting him enjoy watching the two of them fighting like animals.
- Heads or Tails?: High luck Courier can convince him to decide who dies and who lives based on a coin toss after Zimmer locks them inside the Vault and forces them to fight each other.
- Parental Abandonment: He's non too happy about how his father abandoned him and his mother during his childhood and spends significant amount of time spiting him. The fact that his father's idea of asking for forgiveness is to send him to look for gold on an extremely dangerous journey doesn't help matters.Bradley: Whoa, no skeletal remains or batshit robots? Place looks like it's held up pretty well. Maybe dad was looking out for me after all... (opens door, revealing a room full of skeletons) Fuck my life. Thanks a lot, dad! (imitates his father's voice) Here son, this is a key to a death trap full of fuckall ways to die.
High ranked associate of the Syndicate, staying at Gomorrah in an attempt to absorb the Omertas into the Syndicate.
- The Brute: He was a heavyweight boxer back in New Reno and he joined the Syndicate due to his ability of breaking people with just his hands.
- Fate Worse than Death: What he threats the Courier with. Tony says he will not kill the Courier, but cripple his/her body enough so the rest of his/her days are spent begging for caps in Freeside.
- Jerkass: Unlike Zimmer, he quickly loses his temper and starts being disrespectful towards the Courier.
High ranked associate of the Syndicate and the Final Boss of The Inheritance.
- Affably Evil: He's very friendly towards Courier in all their encounters, even if Courier acts aggressively towards him.
- Corporate Samurai: He is a enthusiast of the samurai culture, owns an unique katana and even challenges the courier to a sword fight over the Enclave gold. With a Melee skill of 100, the Courier can taunt him saying that he's no Musashi and he will end up decapitated.
- Cyborg: He has spent much of his fortune to turn himself into one.
- Noble Demon: He could have killed both the Courier and Bradley at once, but gave the opportunity for one of them to escape and go after him for an honorable showdown. A letter from Khagan, the head of the Syndicate, even mentions that this was a bad idea.
- Villainous Breakdown: He'll quickly get frustrated if the player keeps taking the <stay silent> dialogue.
- Worthy Opponent: Considers the Courier as this, even saying that, accepting his proposal to a sword fight, he's giving the Courier the chance to have an honorable death.
Commander of Legion's southern forces responsible for the repeated attacks against Firebase Zulu.
- Aborted Arc: He was supposed to be a major character in the cancelled Siege of Firebase Zulu and Beaumont's dialogue about him is meant to be foreshadowing for the mod.
- Dropped a Bridge on Him: He's killed off screen some time before Better Angels after he failed to capture Firebase Zulu.
- Four-Star Badass: According to Beaumont, he's much more flexible than most Legion commanders and attempts to mimic modern squad tactics and use them against the NCR.
- Would Hurt a Child: Beaumont tells a story of how he once used a group of starving kids to lure a group of Rangers closer and then blew them all up.
Introduced in The Better Angels
One of God's own prototypes, Josey is a drunk, perverted, womanizing, nigh impossible-to-kill Ranger who leads the NCR relief effort to FOB Omega, and to rescue the survivors of a Legion slave revolt in Arizona.
- All Men Are Perverts: He had a lot of sex-related shenanigans happening to him in the past. In the ending where Watson dies, he ends up becoming a famous New Reno porn star after The Battle of Rorke's Ravine.
- Deep South: He speaks with a very noticable southern accent.
- Noodle Incident: He served for a while with Boone (yes, that Boone) but doesn't want to elaborate that much about it, unless you press him to confess "something" happened. Boone caught him masturbating in his sleeping bag and pointed his gun at him. Josey, deciding that dying like this couldn't get any worse, kept going.
A terse and grim Ranger with a one-track mind, Watson was a former soldier in Caesar's Legion before being abandoned at the Divide.
- The Quiet One: He barely speaks at all and instead lets Josey do most of the talking.
Defacto Commander of FOB Omega, Lieutenant Hodges is a former scholar, attempting to redeem his career.
A NCR official who acts as your contact within the NCR government and the man who organized the rescue mission at FOB Omega.
- Good Counterpart: To Brookshire. Both are officials working for the NCR, but whereas Brookshire is a Glory Hound who dabbles in all kinds of dirty jobs and black ops to further his career, Wickham is a genuine NCR patriot and cares about the well-being of the Courier.
- The Ghost: He is never seen in person as he works from California. All your exchanges happen by way of letters.
- Must Make Amends: In his eyes, saving the runaway Legion slaves will give you closure for the "raw deal" you got in Frosthill.
