Cassidy Caravans is a caravan company owned by Rose of Sharon Cassidy in 2281. Once a main competitor to the Crimson Caravan in the Mojave Wasteland, Cassidy Caravans have fallen on hard times after a run of unfortunate events.

Background[edit | edit source]

Due to her restless, nomadic nature, Rose of Sharon Cassidy traveled the wasteland back and forth sometime after the death of her mother. After passing through the same settlements and becoming familiar with the locals, residents would occasionally pay Cass to deliver items to the next town in her route.[1][2]

Soon, Cass realized that she could satisfy her need to wander while getting paid for it. She became the founder of Cassidy Caravans, eventually hiring other people to assist with deliveries.[3] Although the company's size was small, the caravan was quite competitive, threatening larger outfits by frequently trading with core customers such as the New California Republic.[4][5] Despite the rise of brutal caravan conflicts in the Mojave, Cassidy Caravans continued to operate in the area.[6][7]

In 2281, Cassidy Caravans was covertly attacked by the Van Graffs as part of an agreement with Alice McLafferty, the manager of the Crimson Caravan's New Vegas branch.[8][9] Staged to look like a Brotherhood attack, the caravan and its cargo were disintegrated, destroying the majority of the company's assets.[10][11][12] Cass, the caravan's owner, was stuck away at the Mojave Outpost at the time, attempting to clear her caravan papers to gain access back into the Mojave.[13][14] With word of the attack having reached Cass and Cassidy Caravans now having little to its name, McLafferty planned to purchase the company to fully eliminate her competitor.[4][8]

  1. The Courier: "So you just started in the caravan...?"
    Rose of Sharon Cassidy: "Actually, it sort of fell on me. My feet get antsy if I stay in one place, like the Mojave Outpost."
    (Rose of Sharon Cassidy's dialogue)
  2. The Courier: "So you traveled a lot."
    Rose of Sharon Cassidy: "Yeah. West, East - and passed through places enough times people would sometimes pay me some caps to take something to the next town."
    (Rose of Sharon Cassidy's dialogue)
  3. The Courier: "What, like a courier?"
    Rose of Sharon Cassidy: "Well, not as glamorous, I guess - roads back West were safer in most places. Most. Anyway, occurred to me I could scratch the traveling itch and get paid for it. Cassidy Caravans formed around me, rest is history."
    (Rose of Sharon Cassidy's dialogue)
  4. 4.0 4.1 The Courier: "Tell me about the negotiation."
    Alice McLafferty: "There's a small trading outfit, Cassidy Caravans, that I'm interested in acquiring. They've been rather competitive, so it's time to buy them out. I have it on good authority that the owner, Cass, wants out of the caravan business. Cass frequently trades with the NCR, so you'll likely find her at the Mojave Outpost."
    (Alice McLafferty's dialogue)
  5. The Courier: "Do you deal mostly with NCR?"
    Rose of Sharon Cassidy: "Anyone wise does. Vegas families pay on time, from what I've heard - even the Omertas. The White Gloves pay on time, but they're... creepy. Deal with anyone else, though, you're taking a big risk."
    (Rose of Sharon Cassidy's dialogue)
  6. The Courier: "And caravan life's the same way?"
    Rose of Sharon Cassidy: "The Caravan fighting here in the Mojave... it's been downright brutal. The amount of caravan space you reserve for ammo alone..."
    (Rose of Sharon Cassidy's dialogue)
  7. The Courier: "You sound frustrated."
    Rose of Sharon Cassidy: "I am. If NCR took the same stand and committed patrols to the roads, then I think that'd solve a lot of their problems right there. But they don't. Caravans get butchered in the Mojave all the time, like mine. And so fucking close to Vegas, you could see it from the wall."
    (Rose of Sharon Cassidy's dialogue)
  8. 8.0 8.1 Letter to Gloria
  9. Rose of Sharon Cassidy: "That does it, that's all I need to know. Crimson Caravan and the Van Graffs... they were behind burning these caravans, and they've got to answer for them."
    (Rose of Sharon Cassidy's dialogue)
  10. Rose of Sharon Cassidy: "God, there's almost nothing left. Looks like whoever it was - was just in the mood for killing. Most of the cargo's ash, too - not burned, looks like... disintegrated. When I heard the reports, I assumed "ash" meant "burned.""
    (Rose of Sharon Cassidy's dialogue)
  11. Rose of Sharon Cassidy: "More energy weapons hit this caravan. Place has been picked clean. This... is Brotherhood level murder here. But they don't do things like that. This was done with a purpose."
    (Rose of Sharon Cassidy's dialogue)
  12. The Courier: "Wait, what happened to your caravan?"
    Rose of Sharon Cassidy: "Mojave happened - hit by raiders packing some heavy firepower. Can't believe the Crimson Caravan haven't heard. So if you want to buy all of Cassidy Caravans, you're looking at it - and what I got in my pockets. Still, as little as that is, not looking to sell."
    (Rose of Sharon Cassidy's dialogue)
  13. The Courier: "Where was your caravan hit?"
    Rose of Sharon Cassidy: "Up side of Vegas, hear tell. Trapped at the Mojave Outpost, so I wasn't able to run there when I heard. Been weeks since it was hit, so the site's probably a Cazador nest by now."
    (Rose of Sharon Cassidy's dialogue)
  14. The Courier: "Who's Jackson?"
    Rose of Sharon Cassidy: "Jackson won't let me head north, it's not safe... and even though my caravan's gone, my caravan papers are keeping me here."
