The Courier is the only playable character in Fallout: New Vegas. Like the previous installments, you will be able to choose the gender, name, and race of the player.
- Unlike the previous protagonists in the Fallout series, the Courier doesn't come from any Vaults. Instead, he is provided a Vault suit for Vault 21 and a Pip-Boy by the former Vault Dweller Doctor Mitchell. 
- The Courier has been to New Reno in the past. When talking to the companion Cass you can tell her that you've been to New Reno before.
