Heh, you've got moxy, buddy, but we don't take kindly to tourists on our turf. 100 caps should cover this trip into our territory.

Layla is a deserter from the New California Republic hiding out in Primm in 2281.


A demoralized soldier of the New California Republic Army, Layla and her three fellow soldiers have thrown away their uniforms and deserted from the front lines of the war with the Legion, to avoid the risk of capture and torture at the hands of Caesar's legionaries. As the Army punishes desertion with death, they are trying to put as many miles between them and the Colorado as possible. New Canaan up north is an attractive option. Problem is, they lost all of their money gambling in Vegas, so they're forced to come up with creative ways of generating income. Primm sounded ripe for the picking, especially after the convicts were cleared out, but the new law introduced by the Courier is a serious obstacle in their way.[1] Thus far they've survived by laying low and dodging patrols, so they might just get away with it.[2]

Rather than becoming stuck on the destroyed cars in their path, group members will continue their running animation while soaring up in the air to a height exceeding that of the wall surrounding Primm.

  1. The Courier: "Your turf? I guess the news hasn't reached you yet, Primm has law again."
    Layla: "[SUCCEEDED] Fuck, we lose again. We heard Primm was ripe for the picking, so figured we could come here and shakedown some of the suckers. We weren't expecting a sheriff here. We're just trying to put as many miles from NCR as we can, we don't want to be anywhere near New Vegas when the Legion crosses the river."
    (Layla's dialogue)
  2. The Courier: "Well, they do have a few more troops than the four of you..."
    Layla: "No biggie there. We've been avoiding the patrols and staying low key until this mess."
