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

Background編輯

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編輯

  • 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編輯

首先,我要感謝摩爾上校,與到場的諸位。接下來,請允許我向為共和國無私奉獻,不辭辛勞來到這裡的加州同袍們致以誠摯的感謝。如果不是你們的努力,我將不可能站在這裡,帶來這次演講。你們那不畏艱難險阻的奮戰,時時刻刻準備為國捐軀的決心,是我國的人民將享受和平美滿的生活的堅實依靠。千千萬萬像一等兵傑爾米·沃特森這樣的優秀兒女,確保了內華達和新加州共和國的自由與穩定。

沃特森出生在獨松鎮郊區的一間鐵皮棚屋裡,他從出生至今就沒有擁有過舒適的生活。他的父親,是一位行走與小圓環商路上的商隊保鏢,而他的母親,則是一個常見的加州“尋寶者”,在舊世界的廢墟中勇敢地探索着。水源的缺乏、強盜的襲擊,再加上兄弟會挑起的戰爭,苦難從未停止過折磨他的家人,但他們卻像那高聳的內華達山脈一樣,默默地忍受着這些雨打風吹。十二年前,他們終於不願意再獨自背負生活的重擔——共和國收到了他們的求助,接納他們成為了這個大家庭的新成員。

男人和女人,遊騎兵和士兵,許許多多的人和你們一樣,響應了這戰爭號角的召喚,許下了“我將永遠肩負責任”的誓言。在歐文湖之戰中,我們堅守了承諾,趕走了強盜的部族,在內華達山脈以東建立了長久的和平。我們永遠肩負責任,儘管有很多兄弟姐妹們不幸倒在了戰場之上,但沒有什麼,能讓我們放下責任,背棄承諾。
十年前,首席遊騎兵埃利斯會見了沙漠遊騎兵的的代表們,商討遊騎兵聯合條約的簽署。這則條約不僅僅讓我們迎來了新的家庭成員——沙漠遊騎兵們,更讓我們能夠在內華達南部有效地對抗凱撒軍團,以及凱撒的殘暴統治。

曾有幾位退伍老兵問我:“我們到底為什麼而戰?內華達對我們來說又意味着什麼?”我想說,在有些時候,我們忘記了那早已超越了國界,由共和國社會制度所散發的耀眼光芒;有些時候,我們把這和平美好的生活當做理所當然的事情,而忘卻了共和國先烈們的艱苦鬥爭。我們必須時刻牢記什麼才是共和國的基石,共和國的原則始終與我們同在:平等,民主,以及一個正義的共和法制。這正是長存與人們心中,自舊世界燃燒至今的希望之火。我們是人類文明的繼承者,我們是太平洋東岸的火炬手,我們註定要把光明帶給這黑暗的廢土世界。

當共和國號召加州同胞們把文明之火帶到莫哈維荒漠之時,吉爾米·沃特森就像你們一樣,響應了她的號召。你們一起肩負起了這責任的重擔。當一等兵沃特森的連隊在敢死隊營地遭到攻擊時,他們冒着極大的危險堅持戰鬥——不僅僅是為了加州同袍而戰,更是為了共和國而戰。他們做好了在戰鬥中壯烈犧牲的準備,只是為了保衛共和國的原則——甚至在這屬於內華達的土地上。
一等兵沃特森,你在戰鬥中的表現足以成為我們當中,一座閃耀着英勇光芒的燈塔。我很榮幸,能夠代表新加州共和國參議院與家鄉父老,授予你這枚馬德雷山脈之星勳章。

就在不久之前,為了兌現我們對沙漠遊騎兵的承諾,又有許多共和國的優秀兒女倒在了這片荒漠之上。為了紀念他們,一座新的紀念碑在巨石城落成了。在紀念碑的背面,刻着那些為了責任而英勇犧牲的士兵、遊騎兵的名字。正是他們的壯烈犧牲,才讓我們沒有在這爭奪水壩的戰爭中失敗。

自四年之前,我們控制了這座水壩;自四年之前,我們肩負起了責任的重擔。自四年之前,我們在莫哈維建立一條如同科羅拉多河般堅不可摧的防線,一條暴君凱撒永遠也突破不了的防線。今天,你們站在這裡,和袍澤們一起守衛着這條防線;今天,所有的加州父老都為你們肩負的責任而驕傲;今天,你們就是那太平洋上的巨浪,永不停歇的向東邊傳播着人性、文明的浪潮!你們就像那馬德雷山脈之上的紅杉樹,在凄風苦雨中傲然挺立!你們是來自西方加州的希望之光,你們是蒙昧黑暗中高舉文明火炬的火炬手!你們站在那裡,就是共和國最優秀的楷模!

感謝你們!感謝大家!

(好吧我們快離開這鬼地方吧...你傻站着幹什麼,想讓我挨槍子兒嗎?走!)

註釋編輯

  • Aaron Kimball is one of the characters that the Courier must eat in order to earn the Meat of Champions perk.
  • 金博爾在胡佛大壩演講時,如果仔細看,他的嘴是不動的。
  • 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.
  • 克羅克大使徐上校的辦公室都有一幅金博爾總統的畫像,當然,NCR懲戒所里也有一幅,但是被艾迪改的有點“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."
  4. Mr. House's dialogue: "Kimball's entire political career is inextricably bound up with the NCR's occupation of the Mojave. It's his war."
  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."
