Unlike the good ambassador, I don't intend to blink.

— Colonel Moore

Colonel Cassandra Moore is the commanding officer for the NCR stationed at Hoover Dam.


A career soldier who joined the army at the age of 16, Cassandra is a veritable legend among NCR troopers. She took part in operations against the Vipers and the Jackals, as well as surviving four tours of duty against the Brotherhood of Steel in California, and is widely considered to be one of the most competent military officers in the Army. She is a noted conservative in military matters, favoring strength and determination over cunning and diplomacy. Chief Hanlon notes that she is "better at making graves than making friends".

While interacting with Moore, the Courier learns that she was once an NCR Ranger, but after being injured in combat, had to leave the front lines to assume command behind a desk, something that turned her mood a little bitter. She regrets having to leave the Rangers "because of the freedom to do whatever you want," in her own words.

Moore displays unfailing support for General Lee Oliver and President Kimball's push to seize the Mojave - a support which has seen her gain great influence - and is not above violent means to ensure NCR's dominance of the region; whether it be dealing militantly with the Great Khans and the Kings or completely destroying the Mojave chapter of the Brotherhood. She is rather critical of Ambassador Crocker and his more diplomatic approach to NCR's expansion into Vegas and will push for his removal if the Courier chooses to support his approach to the Kings and Freeside above hers.

  • When asked about the Hoover Dam, her dialogue box says "It's of immense strategic value to the NCR. Hoover Dam sends enough electricity west to light every city and major settlement", but actually she says "It's a position of some strategic importance to the NCR. Providing power and that's what it does."
  • You will notice that Moore and Ambassador Crocker have opposing views on the best route to handle the issue involving the Kings in Freeside. Moore favors a military strike over Crocker's diplomatic approach.
  • With a reputation of 'Idolized' with the NCR, Moore will salute you when you finish dialog with her during the subquests contained in For the Republic, Part 2.
  • If the Courier sides with the NCR at the battle of Hoover Dam, one of Moore's orders is to destroy the Hidden Valley bunker. If the Courier choose to pursue the diplomatic path, building an alignment between the Brotherhood and the NCR, this will make her furious and the player will gain NCR infamy. The amount, however, is negligible, and will not impact your overall reputation with the NCR so long as you have been in good standing with them up to that point.
  • When talking to her while the battle of Hoover Dam has begun she says that the NCR have driven the Legion to the east and the NCR are controlling the dam.
  • If you sided with the NCR she has a large list of dialogue options telling you about things now the Second Battle for Hoover Dam is over WHILE actually playing through the Second Battle, noting that she was promoted to Brigadier General, has sent troops after the fleeing Legion Army, and how the Legion is falling apart because of their leaders being dead - despite Bethesda saying that there will be no continuous DLC for New Vegas. This is more than likely because the game was at one point open-ended, with Obsidian only making the decision to exclude a postgame after development had already started.
  • Colonel Moore will disappear from the game world if the player fails Don't Tread on the Bear!, to prevent the player from progressing further along the NCR quest line.


Cassandra Moore appears in Fallout: New Vegas.


  • pcIcon pc ps3Icon ps3 xbox360Icon xbox360 During How Little We Know, there is a bug where, after completing it, the game will not allow you to talk to Colonel Moore. POSSIBLE CAUSE: This happens when you haven't spoken with Liza O'Malley at the beginning of the Omertas part of the For the Republic, Part 2 quest or if you have already gotten You'll Know It When It Happens from Yes Man. You could use setstage 00110a63 60 console command that allow you to lie about Omertas and continue the chain.
    • PS3 solution: Kill Cachino and lie to the NCR about their plans. You will still get NCR fame and no evil Karma. This is the only way to fix the glitch and continue with the NCR.
