Settler with Pack Brahmin[edit | edit source]

A Settler will be trying to run away from something with his two pack brahmin. Interacting with him causes him to reveal that what he's fleeing from has caught up to him and a battle ensues. After all the enemies are killed, if both pack brahmin were killed upon interacting with the Settler again, he's upset at having lost his livestock and his means of living. Through the right conversation choices, a player character can help him out by offering some caps in return for some of the brahmin meat and milk that can be salvaged from the carcasses. This earns a little bit of reputation with the Settlers as thanks for helping him.
