What the hell are you talking about?

Myron (? - 2242[1]) is the Mordino Family's drug wizard, and the bane of New Reno's whores in 2241.

BackgroundEdit

A pasty-faced teenager[2] with greasy hair and the faint smell of laboratory formaldehyde hanging seemingly permanently about him,[3] Myron is a scientific prodigy, the self-taught genius responsible for the (alleged) invention of Jet for the Mordino crime family of New Reno.[4] In reality, Myron's achievement wasn't inventing Jet (which was created pre-War),[5] but in modifying the manufacturing process to be faster and cheaper.[6][7] The first samples arrived in Redding in January 2241 and began addicting miners en masse, bringing the strategic town closer to Reno.[8] The Mordinos rewarded Myron lavishly, with a steady supply of luxurious goods, prostitutes, money, and an entire dedicated laboratory and manufacturing plant located at the Stables north of the city.

His adolescent accomplishments left him with numerous personality flaws. He is boastful, arrogant, self-centered, and has seemingly unmitigated sex drive many prostitutes servicing him find unpleasant. His efforts to refine his "pet project" are motivated not so much by greed, but by his desire to prove to himself that he was, is and will be a genius in the field of entertainment chemistry.[9] In addition, he also had taken to developing a new type of mild hallucinogen, although it was less addictive than Jet.[10] He cares little for others, least of all slaves, who he treats like objects rather than human beings. Mutants earn even less respect from him.

Myron was stabbed to death by a Jet addict less than a year after the defeat of the Enclave, while he was drinking at a bar in the Den. His name was quickly forgotten, as was his claim of the invention and the development of a refined manufacturing process of the infamous drug.[1]

Other interactionsEdit

  • He will join the Chosen One if they play to his ego and convince him that leaving town might make the Mordinos realize how valuable he is to them.
  • He is more of a scientific genius than a fighter as he possesses a good Science skill. Myron can make antidotes, stimpaks and super stimpaks if the Chosen One gives him the proper ingredients.
  • He can get the Chosen One the cure for jet addiction if their Speech skills and Intelligence are high enough.
  • A female charismatic (or Porn Star) will change his dialogue tree to a sexual tone with the Chosen One.
    • In addition, if a female Chosen One has a low Intelligence, or Endurance, Myron will offer her a spiked drink when first spoken to.
  • If the Chosen One comes to the Stables by car, Myron will comment on it.

ChemsEdit

Myron can make the following chems if given the ingredients he needs to make them:

Poison antidote
Stimpak
Super stimpak

To get the option, one must first mention super stimpaks when selecting how many regular stimpaks to make with Science 76% and INT 8.

NotesEdit

  • Even if he dies during the game, he will always have the same ending.
  • In the Shark Club, in New Reno, the comedian there will eventually start making fun of Myron.
  • Since Myron is a teenager, he is considered a child and killing him counts towards the Childkiller reputation. He can be killed by planting explosives on him and leaving to advance time, applying Super Stimpaks and advancing time or making him a companion in order to leave him in the brain extraction room on to the fourth level of the Sierra Army Depot. However, as with any companions, organ extraction incurs negative karma.
  • Due to being the developer of the enhanced version of Jet, Myron disgusts John Cassidy as he hates chems.
  • If the Chosen One's party is full, Myron will refuse to travel with the Chosen One; If Marcus is in the party, he will say that he "doesn't hang with mutant trash," then add, to Marcus, "ah-heh, no offense, big guy."
  • If the Chosen One makes him wait and you have lower charisma (like withdrawal effects of mentats), he will refuse to come with you until your stats return. (Tested on 10 INT, 2 CHR 7 PER)

Notable quotesEdit

  • "Okay, okay! I'll wait here! Phew. You could show me a little more respect, you know. I am MYRON."
  • "By putting tons of brahmin shit in the vats, we found out that the fumes give more than enough of a kick. Eureka. Literally. 'Course, we had to test to get the mix right'"
  • "What the hell are you talking about?"
  • "So you finally wise up, beautiful? Finally realize that I'm the only one for you?"
  • "Guards ain't worth the chips you pay for 'em...well, my retarded friend, we've been introduced, so why don't you GET THE HELL OUTTA HERE NOW!"
