Well that don't make no sense. We came all this way; why don't he want to stay? It's nice here.

Private O'Hanrahan is an NCR soldier and part of the Misfits living in Camp Golf in 2281.


Raised as a Christian in his rural home, O'Hanrahan enlisted in the army in order to help his family of struggling farmers by giving them one more source of income and one less mouth to feed. Despite his great strength and physically imposing stature, O'Hanrahan possesses a gentle (almost pacifist) personality and generally believes in diplomatic solutions over the use of violence.

  • If the player has a good reputation with the NCR, O'Hanrahan will express excitement to meet the player, and will mention that he wants to write home to his mother about it.
  • O'Hanrahan is one of the tallest non-player characters in the game.
  • If the player has a bad reputation with the NCR, he will greet them by saying "Get away from me you big bully."
  • Unlike most other members of the NCR army, O'Hanrahan doesn't speak of the Legion in a hostile manner, instead calling the Legion's soldiers "them Legion fellers."

Notable quotesEdit

  • "I ain't scared. I just don't like hurtin' folks, is all. Ma always used to tell me, "Boy, you're the biggest and the strongest, so you mind yourself!" Every day she told me that. Guess I done took it to heart."
  • "Maybe you just ain't had a healthy dose of human niceness in a while."
  • "Well that don't make no sense. We came all this way; why don't he want to stay? It's nice here."
