PostSubject: If Boone's wife wasn't kidnapped and murdered?   Fri Oct 24, 2014 5:20 am

Okay, we should all know by now that Boone's wife named Carla was mercy killed by Boone in order to prevent Legion enslavement. Therefore, making a sad, broken man hell-bent on killing the Warriors of Crimson Red known as Legion.

Now think about this, what if Carla was never sold to the Legion?
How different would Boone be if Carla was still alive?
Would what happened at Bitter Springs be haunting him as badly if his wife was still around?
Would his friendship with Manny have changed?

I am curious as to what the VGU community thinks about what could have been and how it has changed this former first recon sniper into a Legion killing machine.

Maybe he wouldn't be as miserable, but I doubt he'd have any love for the legion. Its very easy to hate them, and believe me he's not the only one that ones to get back at them. Their long list of atrocities is bound to piss off a lot of people. Joshua Graham also has a grudge with them, and I'm sure if Caesar ended up in his hands, he would die a terrible death.

Bitter Springs would still haunt him, something like that is going to haunt anyone, regardless of what happens to them or not.

That raises another question, did Boone ever talk to Carla about Bitter Springs?
I would doubt it but then again you'd think Boone would at least mention it to her.

I doubt it, maybe he mentioned something but I doubt he said everything. If he's reluctant to talk about it with the PC I'm sure he's not exactly comfortable telling someone else. Sure its his wife, but from what I know about soldiers, which is little, they don't like to talk about those things. Personally, I think the worst part for Boone is having known that his wife was pregnant. He not only loses his wife, but his son/daughter too.

Maybe if he had not lost them, they would have gone elsewhere, since it seems his wife never liked it in Novac. I think the friendship with Manny Vargas would have ended either way.

Seeing as how Manny and Carla never agreed with eachother, mainly about Manny wanting Boone to stay in Novac and Carla trying to pull Boone away.
But would Carla (If she was still alive) manage to convince Boone to leave Novac?
If so do you think he would have been a companion?

Well I think she'd leave him sooner or later seeing as of how she likes the fancy big towns and stuff and it will still lead him to being the him we know so yes I do think he would still have been a companion.

I think she would have, between a your pregnant wife and your friend, I think the choice is pretty clear. Besides, it wasn't really Boone's idea to go to Novac it was Manny's. They'd probably live in the Strip or in California and I doubt he would've been a companion, considering he'd be a family man, and I would doubt the wife would let him go off with some dude to go get killed somewhere in the wasteland.

Who knows what might have happened with him. The whole tragedy with Boone, or the reason he thinks he's cursed is Bitter Springs. Maybe someone else would have ended up as the NCR companion.

He would also not have left with the courior and he wouldve just been another background character in fallout. Someone you talk to for a brief moment and almost never see them again. As cruel as it is; his role in the story(should you choose to use him) is important. I know he has saved my ass a few times and he has helped me locate targets a lot easier. So as bad as it was that he lost his wife; it all turned out alright for him as in a sense he was apart of stopping the legion all together.

I think he would've ended up being a boring, whipped husband that had to comeback home before dinner, thus making him a very unreliable companion lol!

He wouldn't even be able to recruit as a companion if Carla was still alive imo, I mean, she's not going to let him just wander with you the whole day or even weeks closed eyes smile.

He'd still be cynical and depressed because of the battle, but much less than he usually is.
Also he would be good friends with Manny, their friendship was broken because Manny didn't like Carla and was glad she went missing. I'd bet he trusts people more and would overall seem happier to the outside, even if he was haunted by the massacre.

If Carla was alive, Manny would probably be the companion to replace Boone if you could convince him to wander the Wasteland again.

Its kind of a better that Carla is dead if she was a life they could've been so happy together sure i mean i like happy endings but every thing needs its end as for Carla again she woul've anyway even if the legion dint killed her or slaved her if it aint the Legion then maybe the Deathclaws or Raiders would've clip her ass out nad Boone would be mad he will probably kill himself but nah he is just selfish enough and he is arrogant after losing her and again and again if Carla was alive who knows there might've been a litlte Boone.

Well Boone certainly wouldn't be so cold and distant and possibly be more happy (whatever a happy boone looks like lol) and would have moved somewhere with no Legion or Fiend problem, probably back in California imo.

I'd Imagine that a black hole would appear and suck away the sun and moon and all the stars. But hey to each his own closed eyes smile

Maybe Manny would be a companion option as well? If you could even still recruit Boone I don't think that Manny would want to leave and would ask to join you on your adventures. It would be interesting to see Carla's dialogue and what kind of person she is. She doesn't like Manny, we know that much from the way he talks about her.

Maybe he wouldn`t be as hell-bent on killing the person who sold her and that he would be a little less miserable and wouldn`t be as mean to the the player.
