  • Eye for an Eye: If siding with the NCR, Aurelius and the rest of Cottonwood Cove's legionnaires must be killed to complete the final part of the quest. If siding with the Legion, he may be questioned for bad intel during the quest for Legion Fame and 500XP.
  • Arizona Scavenger: NCR troopers and rangers carry NCR dogtags which can be picked up when they die. Aurelius is willing to take any dogtags you may be carrying, paying 10 caps and Legion Fame per dogtag.



  • Despite the Legion's strict prohibition of drugs and alcohol, a pack of cigarettes and beer can be found in his room.
  • One can also find a toy car and a teddy bear in his office, along with a Grognak the Barbarian comic and a sexy sleepwear.
  • Aurelius is noticeably tall, much like Arcade Gannon, Decanus Severus, and Orris.
  • Even if the player has an "Idolized" reputation with Caesar's Legion, Aurelius of Phoenix will still greet the player with "Get moving, Profligate!"; however, giving him large amounts of NCR dogtags will still yield compliments from him.


Aurelius of Phoenix appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.

  • Xbox 360Icon xbox360 Sometimes, when the 35 Barter option shows up for trading NCR dog tags for supplies, the option will not go away regardless of how often it is selected. It will continue to give XP every time it is selected. [verified]
