  • Despite the Legion's strict prohibition of drugs and alcohol, a pack of cigarettes and beer can be found in his room.
  • One can also find a toy car and a teddy bear in his office, along with a Grognak the Barbarian comic.
  • Aurelius is noticeably tall, much like Arcade Gannon, Decanus Severus, and Orris.
  • Even if the player has an "Idolized" reputation with Caesar's Legion, Aurelius of Phoenix will still greet the player with "Get moving, Profligate!"; however, giving him large amounts of NCR dogtags will still yield compliments from him.


Aurelius of Phoenix appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
