In 2161, the Khans lurched out in an open house to the southeast of Shady Sands, with tents around for lesser raiders. The leader of the Khans at that time was Garl, but he was killed by the Vault Dweller who came there to rescue Tandi, who had been kidnapped by the raiders. The Vault Dweller also killed most of Garl's companions, except for one young fellow called Darion (unseen in-game), who later became the founder of the New Khans.
The Khan Base is centered around the main building, which appears to be a jail. There are also four small tents where the raiders sleep and an outhouse behind the main building. The base has a boxing ring. The Vault Dweller can enter it only when fighting Garl to rescue Tandi.
