The paths we're following are slow going, so you might as well keep your ears open and listen to what old Jed has to say.
FNVHH Intro Slide04
A few decades back, folks in the NCR started to hear about a community in northern Utah called New Canaan.
FNVHH Intro Slide05
Didn't know much about them, except that they were religious folks. Sent out missionaries to talk to the tribes.

FNVHH Intro Slide06
We've seen our share of cults, but the New Canaanites, they were honest traders. Good fighters, too. Raiders wouldn't tangle with 'em.
FNVHH Intro Slide07
But then the Legion appeared in Arizona. I reckon you know all about them.
FNVHH Intro Slide08
Turns out Caesar's first war chief, the Malpais Legate, was a New Canaanite. Joshua Graham.
FNVHH Intro Slide09
Legend goes that Graham was the meanest, toughest son of a bitch in the whole damned Legion. The New Canaanites wouldn't talk about him. They were ashamed. Guess I can't blame 'em.
FNVHH Intro Slide10
Well at Hoover Dam, the Malpais Legate finally met his match. Hanlon and Oliver kicked his New Canaanite butt right back over the river.
FNVHH Intro Slide11
Caesar had to make an example for the others, to show them that even at the highest level, failure wouldn't be tolerated.
FNVHH Intro Slide12
He had Graham covered in pitch, lit on fire, and thrown into the Grand Canyon. People say he didn't even scream on the way down.
FNVHH Intro Slide13
Not long after, some of the slaves and tribals started to talk. Said Graham wasn't dead. Shouldn't have been any surprise.
FNVHH Intro Slide14
All this talk bothered Caesar, so he forbade anyone from speaking his name. Wanted to erase Joshua Graham from history.
FNVHH Intro Slide15
He got his wish. Joshua Graham disappeared. And in his place came legends of the Burned Man walking the wastes.
FNVHH Intro Slide03,16
Probably just a tribal ghost story. But New Canaan's been silent for a long time. Maybe it's a coincidence. Maybe the Malpais Legate is dead. Or maybe Joshua Graham did crawl out of that canyon and finally found his way back home.
