Loyal is the chief mechanic for the Nellis Air Force Base. Keeping the Solar array and other key machines functioning are his primary concerns. He has lived at Nellis since his people left Vault 34. Unlike the other Boomers, Loyal doesn't appear to be xenophobic. He actually seems to appreciate the Courier's help.
Loyal can be found eating breakfast in the Mess hall & munitions storage from 8:00-10:00am, then in the southern hangar of Nellis or in his house, which is the farthest to the left of the three barracks, on the back side of the two main hangars.

- Playstation 3 Sometimes, if Crazy, Crazy, Crazy quest has not been completed, Loyal may disappear from Nellis Air Force Base. Completing that quest should fix this problem. Likewise, he can often be found via quest location marker.[verified]
- Xbox 360 If the player character has completed Volare! before doing the Render Unto Caesar or The House Always Wins questlines, Loyal becomes useless when attempting to get The Boomers to side with either faction. Despite the quest arrow pointing to him, the only remark he will give is about the resurrected plane. [verified]
