Will you get it over with!— McMurphy to Benny at the Courier's grave

McMurphy was the Great Khan leader living in Boulder City in 2281.


He was the leader of the Great Khans party hired by Benny to retrieve a package from the Courier, and is later mentioned on Manny Vargas' personal computer terminal. After his death, Jessup, the next highest ranking Khan, took over; this is when the Courier finds what is left of his party in Boulder City. His body can be found lying on a dirty mattress in the Great Khan hideout in Boulder City.
