==Background==
While [[Robert House|Mr. House]] was bringing civilization to the Vegas tribes during his takeover of Vegas, one such tribe on the outskirts of The Strip refused his offers of reform. In a building in Freeside, [[The King|a young scavenger]] from the tribe had unearthed strange paraphernalia about people who worshipped an ancient, black-coiffed deity of considerable style and singing talent, known as "The King".

As if divinely inspired, the scavenger took on the name and appearance of The King for himself, along with a new philosophy of respect and personal freedom. His words awed the rest of the tribe, who also began to call themselves Kings and dress in a style similar to the pre-War King- denim, hair gel, and leather. The robotic dog [[Rex (Fallout: New Vegas)|Rex]] also wandered his way into Freeside, and was adopted by The King, living alongside the rest of the tribe at The King's School of Impersonation, their headquarters in Freeside.

Since those earlier days, the Kings have grown to become the dominant force of Freeside, fiercely independent from New Californian Republic or House rule. However, with the strife in the rest of the Mojave, NCR squatters have begun moving into the Kings' territory backed by the NCR, who the King sees as being a potential threat- "The devil in disguise".<ref name="FNV Guide">''[[Fallout: New Vegas Official Game Guide]]''</ref>

The Kings claim Freeside as their own, defending it with their switchblades and pistols. Not shy to make a few [[Bottle cap (Fallout: New Vegas)|caps]], the Kings, as well as some less reliable others, offer safe escort through Freeside and will even help you fill your water canteen, for a price. Besides these few "services," the Kings generally follow a strict code of suave chivalry. They try to keep peace and order in the streets and do what they can to help the Freeside community. Kings members will assist in fights against any thugs or attackers that attack civilians (or the Courier), and will sometimes offer rewards to the player if his actions have helped Freeside.

By all accounts they are respected throughout Freeside, as interactions with the [[Followers of the Apocalypse]] make clear.

The missions accepted by the player will decide the Kings' future relations with all who visit the Strip. Even the New California Republic will eventually have to deal with the Kings, in one way or another.

The Kings are almost always armed with [[10mm pistol (Fallout: New Vegas)|10mm pistol]]s, but can also be found carrying [[.357 Magnum revolver]]s or [[10mm submachine gun (Fallout: New Vegas)|10mm SMGs]]. Their light uniforms, the [[Jailhouse Rocker]], [[Memphis Kid outfit]] and [[Kings outfit]], can be equipped as well. [[Sergio]] is a special King wielding a unique [[straight razor]] named [[Figaro]]. Like most grunts of minor factions, [[Kings gang member]]s are absolutely no match for [[NCR trooper]]s, due to their low damage per shot and lack of armor.

The Kings reside in a large building in the center of Freeside. They also run the water pump installed by [[Bill Ronte]] of the Followers of the Apocalypse. However, they have drawn the ire of the Followers as they use the pump as a way of bullying NCR civilians, as they charge them twice as much to use it.
