Proto id00000366 (Capt. A. Ron Meyers)

With these people, you know exactly where you stand. They don't play games. The Enclave was like a pack of hyenas - they'd turn on you in a second.

A. Ron Meyers is the captain of the PMV Valdez[1][2][3] in Fallout 2.


Wearing tattered clothes and a captain's hat,[4] little indicates that Meyers is a former Enclave serviceman. He abandoned the organization after he realized that he wasn't fighting for the United States of old, but for a coterie of rich, old bastard hungry for power.[5] As a low level Navarro technician coming from one of the smaller mainland outposts of the Enclave (at least according to what he says about himself), he wasn't important enough to warrant a manhunt.[6][7] Since then, he has been living with the tanker vagrants, whose honesty, openness and community are a refreshing change from the hyenas of the Enclave.[8]

  1. The Chosen One: "{117}{}{The Captain? Who's that?}"
    Marc: "{124}{}{The Captain is a tough-ass ol' military guy. He sits upstairs there and checks the place out. He's got some thorough knowledge about this ship.}"
  2. The Chosen One: "{108}{}{Why do they call you the Captain?}"
    A. Ron Meyers: "{111}{}{I'm the Captain. I run the ship. Any more questions, go talk to one of the Shi or Badger or someone. I don't have time for you.}"
  3. The Chosen One: "{174}{}{How do I run this boat?}"
    Chip: "{178}{}{Check with the Captain. He lives in the captain's office upstairs.}"
  4. A. Ron Meyers' character description: "{100}{}{You see someone wearing a captain's hat.}"
    "{101}{}{You see Captain A. Ron Meyers}"
    "{102}{}{You see a punk in tattered clothes wearing a captain's hat.}"
  5. The Chosen One: "{114}{}{How do you know all this?}"
    A. Ron Meyers: "{118}{}{I used to serve with the Enclave. Then I realized it wasn't the USA I was fighting for; it was for the rich old bastards who didn't want to give up their power. I deserted and now I live here with more honest people.}"
    The Chosen One: "{119}{}{More honest people? These guys?}"
    A. Ron Meyers: "{132}{}{Yes. With these people, you know exactly where you stand. They don't play games. The Enclave was like a pack of hyenas - they'd turn on you in a second.}"
    The Chosen One: "{120}{}{What exactly is the Enclave?}"
    A. Ron Meyers: "{135}{}{The Enclave is remnants of old times. If you take this thing across the water to the rig, you'll find out for yourself.}"
  6. The Chosen One: "{134}{}{How did you hook up with them?}"
    A. Ron Meyers: "{138}{}{Easy enough. I just left the Navarro base one day and headed down here. I figured it was the last place anyone would look. Besides, I'm not important enough for the Enclave to look for me - I'm just a loose end.}"
  7. The Chosen One: "{126}{}{What oil rig?}"
    A. Ron Meyers: "{141}{}{There's a big Poseidon oil rig left out on the water. That's the final base of the Enclave, and unless I miss my bet, that's where your friends are, too.}"
    The Chosen One: "{143}{}{What else is going on out there on the rig?}"
    A. Ron Meyers: "{148}{}{Beats me. I was a Navarro tech, not a rig operator. We talked to them over the comm lines, and that was about the extent of it.}"
  8. A. Ron Meyers: "{103}{}{What the hell do you want? I don't speak to anyone unless they're friends or good people. Do something for one of my buddies and then come talk to me.}"
    "{105}{}{I heard what you did for my men. Thanks. What can I help you with?}"
