Shortly after the Legion's loss at the First Battle of Hoover Dam, Joshua Graham made his way home to New Canaan, welcomed back a scarred survivor of Caesar's wrath. This angered Caesar, as he knew that if Joshua Graham could rally New Canaan into fighting shape it could threaten or end the Legion's influence in Utah.
Frumentarius Ulysses was sent to the White Legs, a tribe petitioning for absorption into the Legion to rally them against the growing threat of New Caanan. He successfully organized them into a formidable fighting force and marched onto the lands of New Canaan.
Execution of Joshua GrahamEdit
Siege of New CanaanEdit
The town of New Canaan was destroyed in a violent slaughter leaving only 30 or so survivors. These, under the leadership of Joshua and Daniel, led them to refuge in Zion with their tribal allies.
It is known that Joshua and Salt-Upon-Wounds, chief of the White Legs, had a confrontation during the Canaanites' flight to Zion, where Graham warned the chief not to persist in his attack for fear of retribution. The chief did not listen and followed the Canaanite refugees into Zion.
War for ZionEdit
The Courier has three options, two potentially canonical and one non-canonical.
Crush The White LegsEdit
In this ending, the Courier sides with Joshua in the argument between him and Daniel. Joshua then leads the Courier along the Virgin River to the White Legs' camp at Three Marys. There they meet up with Canaanite, Sorrow, and Dead Horse warriors already besieging the camp. The Courier is separated from Joshua Graham, barely arriving in time to either witness Joshua kill Salt-Upon-Wounds or stay his hand and let him go free.
Flight From ZionEdit
In this ending, the Courier helps Daniel evacuate the Dead Horses and Sorrows from Zion Canyon. The White Legs remain unchecked in Utah, and it soon falls under the Legion Banner.
Chaos in ZionEdit
If the Courier kills an essential character, this quest is activated, prompting the player character to find a map and prematurely leave Zion.
- ↑ 1.0 1.1 1.2 The Courier: "Has this happened before, the White Legs attacking other tribes?"
Daniel: "Yes. But not just White Legs. Raiders too. Prospectors. Slavers. Anyone who thinks they can exploit the ignorant and the innocent. We lost the Tar Walkers. And the Crazy Horns. We did our best, but we made mistakes. We paid for them, but they paid more. I'd like to get out from under that debt someday. Until then, it's enough to stop ourselves from getting deeper in the hole."
- ↑ Sacking of New Canaan
- ↑ The war was sparked by the "execution" of Graham, which happened in 2277.
- ↑ The Courier: "I came here with the Happy Trails Caravan Company to make contact with the New Canaanites."
Joshua Graham: "Happy Trails. The White Legs want to join the Legion. Caesar's rite of passage is the destruction of the New Canaanites, almost assuredly because of me. The good news is that we can help you find your way back. Daniel, one of the other New Canaanites, has made many maps of the region. The bad news is that we can't help you right now. Not with everything that's going on."
(Joshua Graham's dialogue)
- ↑ Joshua Graham: "We warned you at Syracuse, and you persisted. You took advantage of us at New Canaan to drive us out, and like the dogs of Caesar you are, you followed us to Zion. And now you stand on holy ground, a temple to God's glory on Earth. But the only use for an animal in our temple is sacrifice! Kale watcha nei conserva oh! You understand me, don't you? Don't you?!"
(Joshua Graham's dialogue)
