Do you really think you can kill *me*? I am in control, and you... are mine.— The Keeper


The Keeper was originally a member of the Mojave Wasteland Brotherhood of Steel, who went by the title, "Paladin Ordera". A devout believer in Elijah's teachings. He wanted nothing more than death to the NCR, and collection of technology useful to the individual.

After The Battle of HELIOS I, he was exiled due to Elijah's leave, the Brotherhood on edge and believing him to be a threat due to his thoughts. In a fit of rage, he began raiding caravans, taking their more technologically advanced wares, and running off. He was known as the "Brahmin Snatcher" by most on the road, a tale for caravaneers to tell to each other during the cold and hard days.

He always had a lust for power, as Elijah's heir to power if Elijah were to die without being a traitor. After exile, he sought out the Vipers and Jackals, both haters of the NCR and forces to be manipulated. He ousted what leadership they had set up, and led them into what is now known as the Red Mile.

In the Red Mile, the now-known Keeper, leader of the Wardens, the former Jackals and Vipers, the only ones left, are now collecting technology and keeping NCR soldiers and people with possible intelligence prisoner, The Keeper wanting more technology and more power, and the Wardens wanting to take out as many NCR as possible before the gang's death.
