"Wasteland is not kind to anyone really. Whatever it's weak, strong, smart, clever. It always takes something of yours, and I mean always." John Watsman, Champion of the Midwest, agent of MUA.
John had been a young boy growing up in the harsh and cruel Capital Wasteland. As a boy, he learned to survive under teachings of his father and mother, Aron and Kalyne Watsman, former Desert Rangers who fought in NCR-Enclave war before then left the West to get away from the NCR corruption.
He learned how fight, how shot, how survive the Wasteland with his younger brother Connor. But everything changed when Talon Company came to their settlement and attacked.
Despite the efforts made by John's parents and other defenders, Talon Company overwhelmed them and killed everyone in Settlement. John and Connor were force watch as their friends and parents were killed before their eyes, they were able escape the slaughter and made into the Wasteland, alone and frighten.
For month they were force to do what they need survive the Capital Wasteland, John's goals become solely on his brother Connor and nothing else, he was gonna protect his one and only family no matter the cause. But they were found by mercenaries from Talon Company were gonna finish the job on their settlement, they were would have been killed if it weren't for the Lone Wanderer and his friends coming to rescue. John and Connor were awestruck by the Lone Wanderer, it there they truly knew what was like to stare at a hero.
Lone Wanderer and his companions took the two brothers under their care for a while, they soon become close members of the group, even Jericho somewhat. But eventually they drop them off at Megaton where Billy Creel helped raise them with Meggle, to whom Connor become close to.
Whenever John had the chance, he would listen in Three Dog's stories of Lone Wanderer and his adventures, he truly wished to go on their adventures but knew better not to... That time anyway.
But when the Enclave came and killed Lone Wanderer's father, James, John was reminded of his parents death and truly pity the Lone Wanderer for going through the very same pain he and Connor felt. When battle of Project Purity was on it's way, Megaton was among the settlements to join the cause fight for freedom against the Enclave, John and Connor did the craziest thing and snuck in Merchant's caravans and become part of the battle.
Using the skills they learned from their parents and their time alone in Wasteland, they helped fight against Enclave, using their small size and speed to their use, even taking down several Enclave soldiers. But of course they earned the most ear blistering yelling known to men by Sarah Lyons once they were caught right handed by Kodiak. Despite this John and Connor grew like Sarah Lyons, Connor being awestruck by her in same fashion as John was with Lone Wanderer.
John was sadden to hear the MIA report on Sarah Lyons when she disappeared when activing Project Purity when Lone Wanderer was on death's doorstep, he believed she was still alive somewhere, his thoughts often wonder where she was now.
Eventually John decided he was gonna learn what made the Lone Wanderer who he was and set out into the Wasteland, while his brother Connor went join the Brotherhood of Steel in honor of Sarah Lyons.
John visited locations Lone Wanderer visited, meeting the people who knew him and asked questions regarding him and his time with them. But places like Dunwitch Building, Point Lookout, and the Pitt left scars on John, letting him know just how cruel the Wasteland was.
At Point Lookout he encountered a creature connected to Krivbeknih in Blackhall Mansion, it stalked and chase him through woods and swamps of Point Lookout, killing everyone it stood in it's way, eventually driving off everyone of the island. John was given a scar by the creature, leaving a horrid scar that flesh was blacken and never truly healed, he can still sometimes hear the thing's voice in his head from time to time and feel the scar acting up.
It was where in the Pitt that John would meet his biggest enemy his ever made, a Raider name Yaoguai, a twisted insane man who wanted bring chaos to the Wasteland, seeing himself as a messager of chaos. He was gonna take over the Pitt and release trogs and wildmen into the Capital Wasteland.
John stopped his plans and had thought he killed Yaoguai when he set him on fire and kicked him to group of trogs. But it was revealed Yaoguai survived and has been hunting John ever since.
But John was furious to learn that the new Elder of Brotherhood of Steel, Arthur Maxson, had exiled the Lone Wanderer from Capital Wasteland when told lies by someone that brought 'info' that the Lone Wanderer left Sarah Lyons to die at Project Purity.
John didn't believed in the bullshit and confronted Arthur Maxson. The two aruged, it was clear they were getting no where, it wasn't until John said Arthur was disgracing everything the Lyons and Roger Maxson stood for.
This resulted in a fight between John and Arthur Maxson, it was among most bloodliest fights John has ever fought, the two nearly killed each other, using everything they had against one other.
It was eventually John who gained the upper hand and had the chance kill Arthur Maxson. But something in him stop him, he remember the once friendship the two held and respect they had for one other, John chose spare Maxson, he left in exile of Citadel, leaving Capital Wasteland behind.
One of former prisoners of Mothership and friend of Lone Wanderer, Sara'la, and ex Star Paladin Cross, chose go with John out of Capital Wasteland. They traveled together for few years, first adventuring to the West, meeting the Chosen One in New Arroyo and learning of Vault Dweller, John learned new lessons from the two, allowing him know just what members of Legacy had go through in order bring peace.
But eventually their travels took them to Midwest, John was disgusted to see the state the Warrior left it in, he soon become determine try restore order and peace in Midwest. John made new friends in his travels, Jerry Matt the young caravan guard who become his best friend, Kravous the humanoid Deathclaw, Michael J. Caboose the Super Mutant, Rose Rubes the young engineer and weapon builder, Johnny Canta the harden mercenary, Zack Ondo the Brotherhood Paladin, Babs the Brotherhood Ghoul scribe, and finally HK-49 the android.
Together they all helped bring peace to Midwest, pressing through it's horrors and dangers, even foundering an army of settlers who wanted bring peace and restoring the Brotherhood of Steel chapter. John soon become the Champion of Midwest, learning what it was like be part of the Legacy. Finally after year of fighting and bloodshed, they stopped the Calculator of Vault 0, but Jerry Matt made the ultimate sacrifice that would have been the Warrior's and John's decision, the memory of Jerry's choice still haunts John.
While the Midwest celeberated it's freedom and peace after 80 years of fighting and death, John and others were morning death of Jerry. John and Sara'la with Rexie soon chose leave the Midwest, Cross stayed with Brotherhood try help guide them on a better path, the others went their own ways.
Eventually both John, Rexie, and Sara'la came to the Mojave Desert when hearing disturbing rumors of a slaver army known as the Legion. But it was here that John would meet the Courier, a young woman who lost her memories from a job gone wrong. The two chose go with the Courier on her adventures, becoming among first join her. They eventually known as the people who got the impossible jobs done, facing the threats no one would face.
John's experience as Champion would become needed for Courier's darkest hours, allowing her know she was not alone in this. John was unknown fact Courier Six would develop feelings for him, while she did do flirtful advances on him, it was merely part of her charm as she was like that. John become involved in adventures Courier and others took in Big Empty, Sierra Madre, and Zion Canyon, each place brought lessons to each.
Only place John did not go with Courier was the Divide when she confronted her past with fellow Courier Ulysses. He was shocked to learn that Yaoguai had attempted to try release the Tunnelers into Mojave, forcing both Courier Six and Ulysses work together to stop him from doing this under battle of an old world flag.
John however was there help Six going through the pain knowing what she brought to Divide, doing what he could help her let go of her past.
But then Battle of Hoover Dam came. With help of many factions and friends Courier Six had made, she helped the NCR against the Legion and Yaoguai's own army of remaining Fiends and Talon Company, it was biggest battle John has ever been involved since battle against the Calculator.
It was there when John would met his future girlfriend, Janna Kallo, the two would fight together, their bond would become to be that day. It was here that John confronted Yaoguai and the Monster of the East, Legate Lanius.
Despite his best efforts, almost killing Legate Lanius, earning his respect. Lanius was able thrust Blade of the East right through his chest, it was here that John truly knew what death felt like as he nearly died that day.
Courier Six enraged attacked Legate Lanius after Yaoguai was thought have been killed during the battle, but his body was never found. Six after fighting a bloody fight, knocked Legate Lanius down the Dam, throwing him down and what was assumed be his death but was eventually reveled he was alive, leading the Legion now.
John would have died if Sara'la didn't donated her blood to help him, thankfully her race's special ablilties in their blood help save his life, giving him new skills and abilties from the blood that was given by him. But of course as straight person Six was, came in knocking on his door drunk with Janna and the three shared a wild night of passion, keeping everyone up who was in building or nearby. With the factions brought together by the Courier, she help formed the Mojave United Alliance, a new ally of NCR who try help keep their greed and expansion in check, help restore what was lost to them.
John become one of Courier's top commanders and one person MUA wants in scouting. The relationship between Janna and John grew until they become romantic involved, she was truly someone that brought peace to John as he did to Janna, it become serious that they were dicussing possible having children together once the war with Legion ended.
But things changed once the two were confronted by the Ghoul name Vachon who recruited them help free her mentor Professor Crane. While she did promise things to them, John and Janna didn't trust her and knew she was bullshiting them.
No what truly got their attention was when she told them where the Lone Wanderer was....
