Although the Followers of the Apocalypse are a humanitarian organization, that doesn't mean that they lack a way to defend themselves, understanding the fact that the wasteland is a place where conflict is inevitable. They maintain a security force that provides much-needed defensive firepower to the group. Maintained through volunteers, the guards are equipped with powerful weapons, but lack proper armor. Regardless, they are responsible for the overall safety of the Followers' members and outposts, such as the Old Mormon Fort.
They receive room, board and payment for protecting their clients, namely patients and doctors from common wasteland hazards. As long as anyone doesn't cause trouble with the Followers, harms a member or anyone else, visitors have nothing to fear from security.
Dr. Usanagi's clinic guards have better equipment than the usual Followers guard, who lacks proper armor. They can be described as a variant of mercenary because they have no special interactions with the Courier.
Interactions with the player characterEdit
The clinic guards only appear in Fallout: New Vegas.
