President Aaron Kimball is the commander-in-chief of the New California Republic in 2281.

Background编辑

Aaron Kimball is a former war hero and the current president of the New California Republic. His insistence on defending Hoover Dam has kept NCR troops in Nevada for years.

Born in 2233, Aaron Kimball joined the New California Republic Army at an unknown date. He rose to prominence during the early years of the Republic's entry into the Mojave Wasteland. His campaigns against the various tribes of the Mojave, pacifying them in order to facilitate NCR expansion, led to his rise to prominence in the military. As a general in the NCR Army, he was widely praised and gained popular support for his campaign against wasteland tribals who attacked NCR citizens, earning the nickname "Hero of the Mojave".[1] His fame and popularity led Kimball to leave the Army and enter politics, and he eventually launched a successful run for the presidency, taking office in 2273. His first act of office was ordering the occupation of Hoover Dam, an act which proved immensely popular with the NCR's populace.[2]

Kimball was better liked as a general than as a politician, where his stiff, autocratic style of leadership was much more fitting. Additionally, his single-minded focus on the Mojave campaign has drained away public support for his administration.[3] The people of the NCR, told going in that victory in the Mojave would be easy, have become war-weary of the campaign's long length and its high cost in human life and materiel. Nevertheless, Kimball has campaigned vigorously for further contributions, militarily and financially, to the Mojave campaign - so much so that the NCR's stake in Mojave has been viewed as "Kimball's war."[4]

Personally, Aaron Kimball is a "war hawk." Supported by Colonel Cassandra Moore and General Lee Oliver, President Kimball firmly believes in expanding the NCR and bringing new territories into the fold by any means necessary, be it Hoover Dam or Baja. This stance, as well as disregard for losses, is one of the greatest issues Chief Hanlon, architect of the first victory at the dam, has with the president.

Effects of player's actions编辑

  • If the Courier sides with Caesar's Legion, Caesar himself orders them to assassinate President Kimball when he comes to Hoover Dam to make his speech. Depending on the success of the Courier's efforts, Kimball either dies as Caesar intended, or escapes, infuriating the tyrant.
  • If the Courier sides with the NCR, they work alongside Ranger Grant to provide security for President Kimball during his speech. Depending on how well this is done, Kimball either completes his speech and departs as planned, or is hustled to his personal Vertibird as one of the possible assassination attempts occurs, cutting his speech short.
  • If the Courier sides with Mr. House, House sends them to Hoover Dam to protect President Kimball during his visit. If he dies, House reasons, Kimball will become a martyr for hawkish elements of the NCR Senate. If he lives and the NCR loses the campaign, however, he will be blamed for a costly and humiliating defeat. After securing his victory at Hoover Dam, House smugly notes that he and the Courier have nothing to fear from Kimball now- "He'll be too busy getting thrown out of office."[5]
  • If the Courier fails to protect President Kimball during his visit, no matter what their loyalties, Kimball will be assassinated by Legion agents sent by Caesar.

金博爾在胡佛大壩的演講编辑

首先,我要感谢摩尔上校,与到场的诸位。接下来,请允许我向为共和国无私奉献,不辞辛劳来到这里的加州同袍们致以诚挚的感谢。如果不是你们的努力,我将不可能站在这里,带来这次演讲。你们那不畏艰难险阻的奋战,时时刻刻准备为国捐躯的决心,是我国的人民将享受和平美满的生活的坚实依靠。千千万万像一等兵杰尔米·沃特森这样的优秀儿女,确保了内华达和新加州共和国的自由与稳定。

沃特森出生在独松镇郊区的一间铁皮棚屋里,他从出生至今就没有拥有过舒适的生活。他的父亲,是一位行走与小圆环商路上的商队保镖,而他的母亲,则是一个常见的加州“寻宝者”,在旧世界的废墟中勇敢地探索着。水源的缺乏、强盗的袭击,再加上兄弟会挑起的战争,苦难从未停止过折磨他的家人,但他们却像那高耸的内华达山脉一样,默默地忍受着这些雨打风吹。十二年前,他们终于不愿意再独自背负生活的重担——共和国收到了他们的求助,接纳他们成为了这个大家庭的新成员。

男人和女人,游骑兵和士兵,许许多多的人和你们一样,响应了这战争号角的召唤,许下了“我将永远肩负责任”的誓言。在欧文湖之战中,我们坚守了承诺,赶走了强盗的部族,在内华达山脉以东建立了长久的和平。我们永远肩负责任,尽管有很多兄弟姐妹们不幸倒在了战场之上,但没有什么,能让我们放下责任,背弃承诺。
十年前,首席游骑兵埃利斯会见了沙漠游骑兵的的代表们,商讨游骑兵联合条约的签署。这则条约不仅仅让我们迎来了新的家庭成员——沙漠游骑兵们,更让我们能够在内华达南部有效地对抗凯撒军团,以及凯撒的残暴统治。

曾有几位退伍老兵问我:“我们到底为什么而战?内华达对我们来说又意味着什么?”我想说,在有些时候,我们忘记了那早已超越了国界,由共和国社会制度所散发的耀眼光芒;有些时候,我们把这和平美好的生活当做理所当然的事情,而忘却了共和国先烈们的艰苦斗争。我们必须时刻牢记什么才是共和国的基石,共和国的原则始终与我们同在:平等,民主,以及一个正义的共和法制。这正是长存与人们心中,自旧世界燃烧至今的希望之火。我们是人类文明的继承者,我们是太平洋东岸的火炬手,我们注定要把光明带给这黑暗的废土世界。

当共和国号召加州同胞们把文明之火带到莫哈维荒漠之时,吉尔米·沃特森就像你们一样,响应了她的号召。你们一起肩负起了这责任的重担。当一等兵沃特森的连队在敢死隊营地遭到攻击时,他们冒着极大的危险坚持战斗——不仅仅是为了加州同袍而战,更是为了共和国而战。他们做好了在战斗中壮烈牺牲的准备,只是为了保卫共和国的原则——甚至在这属于内华达的土地上。
一等兵沃特森,你在战斗中的表现足以成为我们当中,一座闪耀着英勇光芒的灯塔。我很荣幸,能够代表新加州共和国参议院与家乡父老,授予你这枚马德雷山脉之星勋章。

就在不久之前,为了兑现我们对沙漠游骑兵的承诺,又有许多共和国的优秀儿女倒在了这片荒漠之上。为了纪念他们,一座新的纪念碑在巨石城落成了。在纪念碑的背面,刻着那些为了责任而英勇牺牲的士兵、游骑兵的名字。正是他们的壮烈牺牲,才让我们没有在这争夺水坝的战争中失败。

自四年之前,我们控制了这座水坝;自四年之前,我们肩负起了责任的重担。自四年之前,我们在莫哈维建立一条如同科罗拉多河般坚不可摧的防线,一条暴君凯撒永远也突破不了的防线。今天,你们站在这里,和袍泽们一起守卫着这条防线;今天,所有的加州父老都为你们肩负的责任而骄傲;今天,你们就是那太平洋上的巨浪,永不停歇的向东边传播着人性、文明的浪潮!你们就像那马德雷山脉之上的红杉树,在凄风苦雨中傲然挺立!你们是来自西方加州的希望之光,你们是蒙昧黑暗中高举文明火炬的火炬手!你们站在那里,就是共和国最优秀的楷模!

感谢你们!感谢大家!

(好吧我们快离开这鬼地方吧...你傻站着干什么,想让我挨枪子儿吗?走!)

註釋编辑

  • Aaron Kimball is one of the characters that the Courier must eat in order to earn the Meat of Champions perk.
  • 金博尔在胡佛大坝演讲时,如果仔细看,他的嘴是不动的。
  • Asking Mr. House why he's interested in preserving Aaron Kimball's life during his visit will lead House to explain that he simply wants Kimball to remain alive so he can become the scapegoat for his nation to place the blame upon after Mr. House pushes the NCR out of New Vegas, rather than becoming a martyr for his apparently unpopular cause of annexing the region. This will prevent New Vegas from being placed under an NCR trade embargo, or worse, having a war declared upon it.
  • 克罗克大使徐上校的办公室都有一幅金博尔總統的画像,当然,NCR惩戒所里也有一幅,但是被艾迪改的有点“抽象化”; the words "President Aaron Kimball" have also been replaced with "Peaches."
  • He cannot be pickpocketed, even by using a Stealth Boy to sneak up on him.
  • Even years after leaving the NCR Army, Kimball continues to wear a short, distinctly "military" haircut and maintains a hawkish political stance.
  • Caesar grudgingly respects Kimball, calling him "a man of potential held back by the craven political context he inhabits." Caesar expresses approval of the harsh responses Kimball ordered against wasteland tribes who attacked NCR citizens while he was an NCR Army general, describing them as "swift and draconian." In addition, the fact that Caesar specifically wants Kimball assassinated speaks volumes of his estimation of Kimball's importance within the NCR's leadership structure and his importance to NCR morale.

  2. Mr. House's dialogue: "Ordering the occupation of Hoover Dam was his first act of office. As water and electricity flowed to NCR cities, his popularity soared."
  3. Mr. House's dialogue: "Conversely, his failure to annex the Mojave these seven years, and the immense costs of occupying a foreign land, have eroded his popular support."

  5. Mr. House's dialogue (securitron): "No need to worry about the General, by the way. He'll be held responsible, publicly disgraced... 36.5% probability of suicide, by my estimate... Kimball won't be able to save him - he'll be too busy getting thrown out of office."
