It started about six months ago. At first it was just supplies going missing - we figured it was refugees. Then people started dying. Always a single bullet to the head, always from extreme range. We've lost eight refugees and three soldiers to this son of a bitch. We know he must be hiding out in one of the caves up in the mountains, but I don't have enough men to send out looking for him!— Captain Gilles

Captain Gilles is an NCR captain located in the Bitter Springs refugee camp in 2281.

Background

  1. Courier: "What incident?"
    Gilles: "About three years ago, this canyon was the main encampment for the Great Khans. NCR's 1st Recon tracked them here after a raid and made an attack. There was a communication mix-up that resulted in some noncombatants being killed. It was a tragic mistake, but we've done all we can to make amends."

  2. Courier: "Any idea why a Great Khan would be so far from Red Rock Canyon?"
    Gilles: "About three years ago, NCR's 1st Recon launched an attack on the Khan encampment here. There was a communication mix-up that resulted in some noncombatants being killed. I guess he was still bitter about it. It was a tragic mistake, but we've done all we can to make amends."

  3. Courier: "Why is the flag upside down?"
    Gilles: "Of course I'm aware. It's a distress call. This camp is in bad shape, and if we don't get relief soon, I don't know what will happen."
