Carl Mayes is the quartermaster at Camp Forlorn Hope in 2281, in charge of procurement and distribution of supplies. Short on personnel, as well as supplies, Mayes will take any and all help he can get
He has been in the New California Republic Army for a long time and remarks that the situation at Camp Forlorn Hope is the worst he has ever seen. Despite this, Mayes is still loyal to the New California Republic and continues to look for ways to do his job, supplying his unit.
However, because he is unable to leave the camp personally, he needs someone to go out and bring back supplies. He had previously sent people to HELIOS One to see if they had any supplies they could spare, but they have not yet returned. Ever since the Legion took over Nelson, there has been an increased strain on Mayes, as well as the other servicemembers.

- "Not good. If we don't get more supplies, we're going to have to start using dirt for food and sticks and rocks for weapons." – Mayes, when asked about the camp.
- "Me? I've been doing this shit for far too long and have been in too many battles to remember. Still... this has got to be one of the worst situations I've been in. Not too much I can do about it but do my job and do it right."
- "The Major let me send out some troops to gather supplies, but unfortunately they never returned. I'm guessing they ran into some trouble on the way. You can help by finding the troops and assisting them in bringing back any supplies they found."
Carl Mayes appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
