    SKILLS & ABILITIES



    Skills
    Arcade has worked as a doctor for several years, despite spending most of his time with the plants, he knows the human body and how to effectively treat a wide variety of ailments. He’s seen a lot of patients in Freeside suffering from broken bones, animal attacks, illness, and more. Of course, non-humans are a little out of his purview.

    Of course, he didn't spend his life studying medicine exclusively. The libraries the Followers amassed included a wide variety of texts from ancient civilizations. Arcade studied ancient Rome in particular. He's not only well acquainted with the history and mythology, he's fluent in Latin.

    Do not let Arcade’s intellectual nature fool you, however. If he feels threatened, he will not hesitate to fight back. His family of soldiers have trained him well, giving him an extensive knowledge of his preferred weaponry: energy weapons. He's also had a lot of practice shooting a wide variety of dangerous creatures, given his travels through the Wasteland.

    Equipment
    • Plasma Defender: A pistol that shoots small balls of plasma. It’s not the most stealthy weapon, but Arcade’s been surrounded by weapons like these since he was a baby.
    • Ripper: A handheld chainsaw. While not Arcade’s weapon of choice, Arcade knows how to use this very effectively if pushed.
    • Stimpaks: A chem that can be used on pretty much anything to heal a vast amount of injuries. When used by Arcade, they can almost completely heal someone.

    WEAKNESSES

    Despite all of his training, Arcade is still very susceptible to things like guns, or knives, or swords, or anything that can kill a human. He's not frail, but a direct hit from anything could potentially leave him near death, hence why he prefers keeping his distance from any enemies.


    PERSONALITY

    On the surface, Arcade can come across as very distant and cold. If given the chance, he will often choose his work over socializing with others. When he does interact with strangers, it is very clear that he prefers to talk about anything other than himself. Using sarcasm, big words, and a large amount of avoidance tactics to keep from describing anything other than what might be found on an average online dating profile.

    This front Arcade builds hides a very caring and empathetic person. Arcade is an idealist first and foremost. He believes strongly that the ends do not justify the means, and that he can make the world at least a little better, mostly by focusing on the little guy. Arcade would give someone in need the shirt off his back— not without some quips, of course.

    Not all of his outward appearance is a front, however. Arcade’s social skills often leave something to be desired. Anyone who asks for some medical attention can expect excellent service with terrible bedside manner. His sarcastic wit and few social graces can cause him to push people away without meaning to, leaving him incredibly lonely as a result.

    Despite this loneliness, Arcade is very discerning regarding friends. He's passionate about helping people, and expects others to be the same. Anyone who strives to improve the lives of those around them is considered a friend, and anyone who harms others will almost immediately be considered an enemy. He's not quiet about his animosity either. No matter the danger posed, he will not back down if he sees someone doing evil.


    BRIEF HISTORY


    Most of Arcade’s troubles begin and end with the Enclave— a fascist paramilitary organization, in his own words. The Enclave believed that it was the last bastion of pure humanity. From enslaving and experimenting on wastelanders to outright attempting genocide on everyone not Enclave, it can be agreed upon that it was not a nice group.

    Arcade’s problems with it began with the Enclave’s end. Its bases were blown up and the survivors were scattered to hide in the territory controlled by the NCR, which seeks to find and imprison those from the Enclave— including Arcade. Despite being only four when the base he was born in was destroyed, he was forced into the life of a fugitive along with his family: the soldiers who fought alongside his late father.

    After years on the run, Arcade began to work with a group called the Followers of the Apocalypse. There he was able to study medicine and help people like he’d always wanted. Those dreams were quickly dashed when he ended up a researcher and was stuck watching plants for a living.

    Dreaming of something bigger, Arcade agreed to travel with Courier Six, who he could tell was shaping the future of New Vegas. Eventually he came to trust Six enough to tell them his story while asking them to help him bring back his family in one last swansong at the battle for Hoover Dam.

    Arcade was convinced to go back to the Followers, choosing to forge his own future and leaving behind the Enclave. Before he could see the results of the battle really come to fruition, he found himself living somewhere quite new…



    ROLEPLAY SAMPLE

    Huddled up in an abandoned building deep in the Mojave Wasteland, Arcade and Courier Six were sitting quietly as Arcade tended to Six's injuries from a recent battle. Both were very tense, practically daring the other to speak first. Of course, Arcade was the first to break the silence.

    “You know, Rex is much better at fetching then you are,” he said with an air of haughtiness.

    “Yes Arcade, I know,” came the grumbled reply. There was another pause before Arcade spoke up again.

    “Not that it wasn’t impressive to see you diving towards that grenade,” he deadpanned.

    “Than-" the Courier was cut off when Arcade started to check on another spot. His hands stilled and continued with much more gentleness. The Courier continued, "thank you for reminding me, Arcade.”

    “Now, I’m sorry if my shout of ‘grenade’ caused you confusion-“

    “Alright!”

    “But, generally, grenades will explode, and killing whoever is nearby. Luckily, you happen to know a very skilled and intelligent doctor, or this wound might have gotten you killed, and then I’d be stuck with cacti in Freeside...”

    “Arcade!" He stopped altogether to stare at the Courier. After a few seconds of staring, the Courier said, "thank you, for patching me up.”

    “I- You’re welcome," he replied, softly, "just, try not to do anything that necessitates it again. Alright?”
