None that aren't feral ghouls. Those poor bastards - I can't imagine how they must be suffering. I'd like to put them out of their misery but I don't have the heart to do it. Can you do me a favor?”
First Sergeant Astor is an NCR member who was stationed at Camp Searchlight. Astor was on patrol when a frumentarii squad irradiated the camp. While the rest of the camp was either evacuated or transformed into feral trooper ghouls, Astor stayed behind with a small squad to steer passers-by clear of the highly irradiated and infested camp.
In First Sergeant Astor's log, it reads as if the man blames himself, and is ready to drop.
Interactions with the player characterEdit
- We Will All Go Together: Astor will ask the Courier to help him put his feral comrades out of their misery, which he cannot bring himself to do.
- Eye for an Eye: He is also very upset over the camp's destruction, and with the Courier's help he will orchestrate a plan to exact vengeance on the Legion camp at Cottonwood Cove.
Notably, each member of Astor's squad carries a pair of NCR armors, as opposed to a typical NCR trooper who only carries the armor they are wearing.
- "It took everything we had in the last battle at the dam to stand against those brutes. You're a beast, son."
- "None that aren't feral ghouls. Those poor bastards - I can't imagine how they must be suffering. I'd like to put them out of their misery but I don't have the heart to do it. Can you do me a favor?"
- "Killing their Centurion and leadership would be a start, but finding a way to permanently shut down that dock is what we really need."
First Sergeant Astor appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
pc xbox360 ps3 When asking Astor about Private Edwards, Astor will say a rabid dog needs to be put out of its misery, but no further dialogue options will occur. To save Private Edwards, you must not take his dogtag (the 10th and final dog tag) by force or by the Speech check. You must clear out the giant radscorpions that spawn outside his home, inform Edwards, and then talk to Astor about Private Edwards. In doing so, after Astor says a rabid dog needs to be put down, you can then assure Astor that Edwards "Is not Feral." You can then ask Astor where he recommends Edwards go, or convince Astor to accept him into his camp by passing a Speech Check of 50 or having 7+ Intelligence. Finally, return to Edwards and tell him the good news. If Edwards goes where Astor recommended or is accepted back in Astor's unit, you receive Good Karma and Edwards rewards you with a few caps and drops his dogtags for you to pick up. [verified]
