That place gets a little stuffy, need some fresh air, you know?

Neil is a scavenger for the Gun Runners, gathering scrap throughout the Boneyard.


Neil was born inside of the Fortress, his mother is a Gun Runner while his father is a doctor in a nearby town. He kept switching between living with his mother and father, but disliked living with both of them. For this reason, he began sneaking out almost daily and wandered throughout the ruins. It was during one of these trips that he met the player, and either befriends or hates them afterwards. It was sometime after this that Neil's mother died in an accident. When Neil grew up, he became a member of the Gun Runners, much to his father's disappointment, and chose to be a scavenger so he can continue exploring.
