He became a Vault City citizen in 2240.
In reality, Thomas Moore is an undercover NCR agent gathering intelligence on Vault City and smuggling its technology outside. His contact is John Bishop of New Reno, to whom the Chosen One can deliver a briefcase containing Moore's intel and a piece of VC tech.
