Not on my watch.

Richard "Rich" Thompson was a Major in the US Army during the Resource Wars. He fought in numerous campaigns, ranging from missions in China to some fighting in Anchorage and elsewhere. However, prior to the end of the Resource Wars he was transferred back to his home base, and after a debriefing there he was to be sent out on tour to promote the sales of war bonds. Before that happened the Great War began and ended. The base Rich was stationed at had its own fallout shelter, built in a similar design to the vaults. When the first reports of nuclear launches reached the base there was a great scramble to get everyone into the bunker, including civilians as the base was understaffed at the time and the bunker had room to spare. Rich, however was caught outside the bunker, helping people towards it when the door shut and a bomb landed a few miles away.

Two days later Rich woke up, and made his way to the door of the bunker, pounding on it, and after being cycled through an air lock, was admitted and sent straight to a decontamination unit to await screening. As Rich was examined it was revealed that an unknown substance, an injection given to him while he was on active duty in China, likely saved his life. A few months after being admitted into the bunker, he was allowed to into the general populace. It wouldn't be until much later that Rich would discover he had suffered a situation similar to what allowed ghouls to live, unlike them, however, Rich seemed to suffer none adverse effects of the radiation that they suffer from such as the rotting skin, indeed, Rich seems to have been granted a certain degree of eternal youth, as during his 60 years in the bunker he did not seem to age a single year. It was for that reason he was told to leave the bunker. The newer generation of residents did not trust him, and those who did where decreasing in number as they died off. On November 1st, 2137 he was told to take his equipment, which had been with him since the Resource Wars, some supplies and leave the bunker to "gather intel about the outside world" officially, unofficially, he was no longer welcome and had to go.

Since leaving the bunker, Richard has witnessed many events unfold throughout the Post War United States, the actions of the Vault Dweller and his descendant, the Chosen One, the actions of the Lone Wanderer in the Capital Wasteland and the events that unfolded in the Mojave with the Courier.

During his time in the wastes, Rich has joined the Brotherhood of Steel, becoming a Knight, before leaving the Lost Hills bunker to travel more of the wastes. He has created a government in the Pre-War states of Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana, the New Midwest Republic.

Nowadays Rich spends his time helping people where he can, and wandering the wastes in a repaired car. Hoping to see a day when the world recovers. In his wandering Rich has established a good relationship with the rogue Brotherhood of Steel Scribe Samuel L. Whackson who has constructed and modified much of Rich's equipment, including his car and his Plunger Gun. When he can, he drives his car, an old 1957 Chevy Bel Air modified to run off of microfusion cells and energy cells.

Cholly the Yegg. Not much is known about him for certain. What is known is this: his name is Cholly the Yegg, he favors the nail board, or the lead pipe. He was born in November 18, 2237. He has a pet giant rat that he insists is actually a diseased dog that he has named Rover. He calls himself a hobo, and as such, he wanders the wastelands following the pre-War railroads, riding trains when he can. He is a great lockpick, and will get into any kind of safe he finds. He is intelligent, but due to his poor speaking skills most of what he says is a mess of seemingly unrelated words, and conversing with him about a topic results in the same.

Cholly claims to come from a long line of Hobos, who have been wandering the rails for generations. Cholly claims alternately to have been born and raised in Vault 101, Vault City, the ruins of Detroit, Nipton, and Chicago. No one is quite sure which is the case, as he knows the areas well enough and how it was around his time of birth to convince even the locals that he was born there. Beyond these potential birth places, not much is known about Cholly the Yegg's past. He is a legend amongst vagrants in the wastes, as well as among professional thieves, and numerous people have attempted to find him in the hopes of receiving training, however few, if any have ever found him.

Cholly is a heavy drinker of homemade booze, and he eats anything that he can from animals to pre-War food, with the only exception being people, claiming that people are "diseased and unclean to eat". He tends to sleep out in the wastes, and claims to have a rail car mansion somewhere.

If there is a firefight near a railway, Cholly has been known to show up randomly, pushing a grocery cart and chucking a seemingly unending supply of grenades at one of the parties involved in the firefight while yelling angry gibberish. Due to his low explosives skill, however, the effectiveness of these grenades is debatable. It is unknown where this cart comes from as he never travels with anything more than what's on his back, and has never been seen with a grocery cart outside of these rare incidences.

The only known picture of Cholly the Yegg was captured by Picture Taker Nate, whether this was the photographers real name or not is unknown, but that is what Cholly calls him.
