A ragged-looking orphan, the small boy ekes out an existence in the lawless streets of New Reno. He is covered in dirt and his clothes are almost entirely tattered.
Throughout the game, he does not utter a single word, which indicates that he's either a mute, or his ability to speak was somehow affected sometime in his life. He has a keen eye, however, and is aware of everything that happens around him.
Cody can be given drugs, drinks (including alcohol) or food by the Chosen One.
After the player has defeated the Enclave, Cody will show his gratitude with a smile and after some dialogue he will mutter "Thank you" or "Fuck you" based on the Chosen One's actions. Approaching Cody in power armor will frighten him and cause him to run away.
