Personality: A typical a quiet young man, doesn't talk all that much. His morals are in right place and does have strong sense of justice due to his heritage and as one could guess, he hates Raiders with a burning passion, Legion as well since he's seen them do the horrible things they are known for while traveling through Denver and other surrounding areas. The NCR he has conflicted opinions on, he agrees they got problems and people are suffering for it but he does however prefers NCR over the Legion and sees more redemption in them compare to other factions he can name but feels it need better leadership if it's gonna to survive and stop expanding so much. The Brotherhood of Steel he's known for almost his whole life, he remember seeing quite few of them that his parents worked alongside in Capital Wasteland before they died, picking up quite few things about them, hence why he was able get in the Citadel when one of soldiers remembered him as a child. But of course he holds West Coast BoS on much lesser light, he prefers East Coast BoS over the West after seeing the damage they caused in their war with the NCR and war crimes High Elder Jeremy Maxson committed, believing their now just a dying beast that it's killing itself. A noted factor about him is how he behaviors around women, he acts very gentlemen like, treating them with respect, mostly if they deserve it though, this could be traced down to his mother and other mother like figures he's had in his life. John has shown himself almost hold PTSD of some sort, all of it trace to that scar on his face, some moments he'll get a distance look and trace his hand on it, almost as if remembering something in his past, and has violent nightmares in night from time to time. While John does not enjoy killing, he doesn't regret killing the type of scum he encounters in the Wastelands, he will not apologize for killing Raiders, Fiends, Legionaries, or worst, typical seeing killing people like that as a chore. Despite how gruff he can be, he is capable of kindness as his display this to orphan children, giving them food and caps and if he can, find them homes. But John if one look carefully, there's deep regrets following him, ones he keeps to himself and doesn't let others know about. He often is hard on himself in regards of mistakes, while he knows mistakes will always happen and failure, he is none the less harsh on himself when he does make them, including any stupid ones he made. Funny thing about him is that he has a thing for red hairs and tough women with accents.
Backstory: Born in the Capital Wasteland, John was the son of a Desert Ranger, Alexander Walker, who fought in war against the Enclave 30 years ago on the West Coast and his mother being a Regular, Isabella Kelly, who met his father when he came to the Capital Wasteland, the two fell in love and had him soon after. John would grow up in a settlement outside of the DC ruins as his parents worked to hunt down slavers, raiders, etc in the Wasteland and would train him in return. His father, Alexander Walker, was one who taught him how be a Desert Ranger and didn't hold anything back, a gruff and weather ruthless soldier from the war against the Enclave and West Coast Brotherhood of Steel, showed him exactly the kinds of scum there was in the Capital Wasteland and had him see all their horrors, even letting him have his first kill when he sniped a slaver, blew his head open when he was 14, once even breaking John's arm when they were sparring and taught him how reset it back, pushing he's endurance. His mother, Isabel Kelly, taught him marksmanship, how be a lawbringer gunslinger, installing his sense of justice, teaching him always hold on to a sense of humanity but always know the truth from the lies. But one mission that his father and mother did, ended up being one that would ultimately kill them.
They had killed a lot of Talon Company members during a mission in DC Ruins where they were working with a slaver group and as a result they attacked the settlement of their home, John would be forced watch as his friends, neighbors, everyone murdered in the settlement, John was only able survive because of his training by his parents and found a way out of the settlement... It still haunts him to this day the memory of watching a rocket hit where his parents were holding up, killing them in the blast, the memory burned in his mind forever, the smell of their burning corpses and the looks on their dead faces. John attempted to find the survivors that escaped the settlement like him but only to find that they were attacked by Super Mutants... He left no survivors of any of them after seeing what Super Mutants did to them, luring them into a trap that ultimately killed them all, he didn't know how long he just lay there under the sun, he eventually got up and went back to the settlement, only to find Talon Company had burned much of it into the ground and made examples of he's parents bodies, it nearly made him commit suicide but something stopped him, he doesn't what but he just couldn't bring himself to pull the trigger.
He escaped to the DC Ruins where he would go on to survive, doing what he could, but it was a life of where strong live and the weak died, he was force live the life of a rat, hiding, finding food, killing, everything he could to survive. But a year later, John would ran into members of Talon Company, they were very same people who attacked his home, he was kill a few of them before he was force run into the metro tunnels but the mercs still hot on his trail, they finally caught up to him and were about to kill him... That was until the sounds of a Chinese assault rifle filled the air and the droppings of bodies hitting the ground, John was shocked to find a young man in a Vault suit come up to him, accompanied by a dog, a old man in leather armor, the tallest Ghoul John has ever seen, and a woman in skin tight Chinese Stealth Suit. John was saved by the Lone Wanderer himself and his companions, Dogmeat, Jericho, Charon, and Clover, this young man would help him find a home, teaching him that is there still good people in this fuck up world and his companions become almost like family to him, Dogmeat the faithful companion, Jericho the grumply jackass uncle, Charon being like a father figure to him, and Clover being like a older sister, the Lone Wanderer being like a older brother he never had. John would be taken to Megaton where he would be raised by the townsfolk and from there John would listen to the stories on the radio about the Lone Wanderer by Three Dog, becoming inspired by the heroic deeds he made on the Wasteland.
After the Enclave was defeated by the Lone Wanderer and his companions, bringing fresh clean water to the Capital Wasteland, John would go out and follow in the footsteps of the Lone Wanderer, visiting the locations where he had been, talking to the people who knew him, all in the search of learning who he was exactly and what made him into the man he was that saved the Wasteland. But it was not without scars, visiting places such as the Pitt, Mothership Zeta, and worst of all... Point Lookout, the last one showing there is a evil waiting in the darkness and while you cannot see it... It can see you, even losing a friend that day, a Swampfolk name Bob, a deformed but kind hearted man who didn't want to kill or murder, thus he was abused by his people, eventually helped John escaped their camp when he was captured, traveled with John on whole trip of the Island... But when they encountered a creature of somekind in Blackhall Mansion, it attacked them, stalked them, hunted them throughout the Island. Bob would end up giving up his life for John so that he could escaped, throwing him out of a window against his wishes in hotel they were hold up on, the last thing John heard was Bob shouting "YOU WILL NOT HURT MY FRIEND!" And later the sounds of him being torn apart, it forever haunted him as he got off the cursed island.
John would however learn that the Lone Wanderer had disappeared after he had gotten back from Point Lookout, it left him confused where and why he had gone, he went to everyone who can guess where he went. He talked to all companions of Lone Wanderer, all those who were close to him, Jericho, Charon, Clover, the treasure hunter Sydney, the Super Mutant Fawkes, the Brotherhood of Steel Star Paladin Cross, Elder Owyn Lyons, Sentinel Sarah Lyons, anyone who would have the faintest idea where he went but not even Lone Wanderer's lovers, Sydney and Sarah, knew where he went, he can only guessed where but not know. John finally decided he would go out to the Wasteland and search for him, wanting find the hero had gone but never found no matter how far he went, it left him... Lost almost. John ended up traveling to the West Coast after leaving Midwest behind after being tricked by a mayor in a town to kill local gang where in reality the mayor was corrupted, John would have killed him if the mayor didn't had backing from Midwest BoS to secure their power in that area, thus he left but not before letting it be known to BoS that Mayor was going behind their backs about making deals with their enemies.
But he had learned the Lone Wanderer was not only Wasteland Hero out there, learning of the Warrior who help brought stability and peace in the Midwest and unity between races, but as he traveled down Western areas... He would come across one of the most evilest groups he has ever seen in his whole life... Caesar's Legion, John was horrified of the treatment towards women, the brutality of absorbing tribes, using starving children on the battlefield, John would come see this group as one of the biggest threats to Freedom and Justice in the Wasteland and as he wanted to kill them all, he knew he couldn't so he focus on keeping his distance from them but easier said than done as he was moving Denver, dodging the savage tribes, the dogs, and the Legion, but it was here that John saw Legate Lanius, the Monster of the East, in action and he was terrified of this man. He saw him rip men apart with his bare-hands, his massive sword cutting through them like a butter knife through butter, his massive strength and size terrifying his enemies, but what truly frightened him was when he saw why he was call the Monster of the East when he came across a destroyed tribal village, he found everyone dead or crucified or killed in other worst manners that forever scarred him, but fuel he's anger for the Legion. He was lucky to avoid the Legate but he was almost caught few times but his encounter with him showed the kind of monsters the Legion has. He traveled through Arizona, sometimes dodging patrols or killing them when he could, or in rare cases he disguised himself as a Legionary in order blend in, but finally with the assistance of a tribal he become friends with, John was finally able escape it all and made into NCR territory where he would see a very possible chance of restore of peace and justice in the Wasteland.
But he also saw NCR's weakness. Corruption, aggressive expansion, etc, but he would rather have them over the Legion and he saw at least these flaws were capable of being fixed but it all takes the right leadership as that's what ultimately made him fairly loyal to NCR, the people, not the corrupted leaders and shit, the people he met while traveling is what made him loyal. He would even meet the Chosen One in New Arroyo, him and the retired hero would have a conversation of their adventures and from there, John learned of the Vault Dweller whom he has come consider the very first Wasteland Hero that possibly had been and the one who save whole human race from the Master, still though he did had help keep the Chosen One in line as despite being a old man, he got in trouble a lot.
Like when he had step in when the Chosen One hit on a powerful Baron's wife and caused up a bar fight, or the time he had to pay some bar debts that Chosen One owed money to. He was almost beginning question how this man saved all West Coast from the Enclave but there was moments of wisdom that did surprised John. John even met a young woman there, Miranda, a Follower who just wanted help and do what she could for the world, John while thought she was bit naive, she... Help made him forget the things he's seen, it was truly one of happiness moments of he's life with her, often calling her amber eyes the glowing sun filled with warmth, but their relationship didn't last long as John lust for wander beaten him and Miranda went out on missionary work for the Followers, it hurt him, far more than anyone would think.
He traveled the places he learned where Chosen One or the Vault Dweller, just like the Lone Wanderer he wanted truly see the effects of their decisions and actions, but one place nearly changed him, New Reno. John found all kinds of scum in that place, it drove him off the wall, he ended up becoming an assassin or hit-man for Mr Bishop but only because he always agreed to he's terms more than the Wrights and that he found Mr Bishop actually a positive thing for New Reno. He become colder, more ruthless, even sadistic to a extent, hunting down anyone that Mr Bishop gave him as targets or anyone he found guilty of crimes, he eventually earned reputation as a ruthless killer for the Bishops, taking out at least two smaller crime families and even killed one of the Van Graffs, but what finally truly made John realized he was becoming when Mr Bishop assigned him to take out the Yakuza when they made deal with the Van Graffs to take territory from the Wrights that was dangerously getting close to Bishop territory.
He stormed through their base, killing anyone that stood in he's way before he finally made it into where the leader was at, John and him dueled for a bit before he finally killed him, slicing he's head off as he requested to be killed just like the Samurai... But the daughter of the Yakuza boss found him, as John stared at the crying young girl who cuddled her father's body... The memories of him holding he's parents bodies before burying them came back to he's mind, while he did not regretted killing the criminals, he did however began see what he was becoming, like he's father. John would only say to her before leaving "Seek me when you are ready." He got the money and left New Reno, leaving it behind as he made it back to the Wasteland, coming to prefer it over cities.
While he did worked as mercenary and even once a caravan guard, John still continue he's search to understand the truth. Was apart of Old World Opportunity for a short time but he found them too ruthless for he's liking as he saw them kill even civilians, he would have killed them if he could but the leader's skills, Opportunity, made him stop as he knew, he was no match for him, but when he was asked get the money for the job while the others intent other matters, John killed the one who hired them by bashing her skull in until there was nothing left, he gave all money to the team, but didn't take his share even when Opportunity insisted that he did, he refused even to touch it and left them, not even acknowledging him even when he kept trying call him back, just kept on walking away from them.
Now John is in the Mojave Wasteland where he firmly believes a Wasteland Hero will appear, the shitstorm between the NCR, Legion, and Robert House, will surely allow one to rise but he only hopes this person will make the right decision in the Wasteland....
