Johnny was born before the Great War in a military family, and grew up around U.S. Army bases all over the country because of his father's service. Although his family did not approve of it, Johnny pursued his dreams of becoming an actor in New York City. This caused a rift between him and his parents, stating that either they disowned him, or he disowned them, "depending on who you believe." However, his career was ultimately a failure, describing himself as a "bum" when the bombs dropped in 2077.
Johnny became involved with Meg Groberg's raider group when he infilitrated the gang by acting like he belonged, blending in among other survivors. When Meg found out that he had simply slipped into the gang, she reacted positively and the two shared drinks. They eventually "shacked up," and continue a physical relationship with each other. He followed Meg until they settled at the Crater, helping establish the new headquarters in Appalachia. His skill set benefits the raiders' operations, and everyone profits from keeping him around. Now found in the Core, Johnny stands out among the other raiders because of the black suit that he wears. Talking to him will reveal that finding suits are easy, but keeping them clean is his secret.
During the quest The Ol' Weston Shuffle, the Resident must convince Johnny to join the heist on Vault 79. Although he is already on board, Johnny wants something in exchange. He asks the Resident to pose as a slave so that they can infiltrate Sargento's gang at the Watoga Civic Center and free Hal Gleeson from slavery. To do this, Johnny invents the character of "Reginald P. Humphries," an English man who became stuck in Washington, D.C. when the airplanes stopped running. After the Resident fights through their matches (or simply kills all of Sargento's gang) and breaks Hal Gleeson out of captivity, Johnny meets with the two of them. Although Hal was once Johnny's best friend, it is revealed that the true purpose of this mission was so that Johnny could kill Hal and tie up loose ends from when Hal attempted to betray him. Johnny believes that his relationship with Meg caused Hal to become jealous of him.

Johnny will mention that he does not mind "shacking up" with the player character, regardless of their gender, though he doubts that Meg would approve of such a relationship.
- ↑ Johnny Weston: "Wow, Vault Dweller, you're going right for the juicy details. "
- ↑ Resident: "Where are you from originally?"
Johnny Weston: " "
- ↑ 3.0 3.1 Johnny Weston: "The story goes that I infiltrated the gang simply by acting the part. For weeks, everyone just assumed I belonged. But there's more to it. When Meg found out, she wasn't even mad. We had drinks, then shacked up. I trust you enough to say that Meg and I have a physical relationship. Beyond that, it just so happens my skill set benefits her whole operation. Now I stick around with her crew and everyone profits. I followed her around until we settled here. You know the whole business with Hal and all that. He never approved of my arrangement with Meg. I think it got him jealous."
