Who the hell are you? Better yet, what the hell are you doing in this cursed place? You know what? Forget it, it doesn't matter. Welcome to Camp Searchlight, the shittiest place on earth.

Private Kyle Edwards[1] is a Californian ghoul soldier based at Camp Searchlight in Fallout: New Vegas. His hideout is located at the white usonian home just beyond the western Searchlight church.


Private Edwards has been affected by the radiation bomb detonated at the Camp by Legion infiltrators.[2] He has suffered ghoulification, but has not turned feral, unlike his comrades. Fearing the reaction of NCR forces,[1] the prospect of turning feral due to the ambient radiation at the Camp, and the radscorpions that have moved in since,[3] Edwards hid himself in one of the houses.[4]

He is currently trying to figure out how to move forward with his life, but he has no idea where to go, how to live as a ghoul,[5] and he suspects that he will get shot on sight due to latent bigotry (which he is isn't wrong about). His former commanding officer, First Sergeant Astor, believes every ghoul in Camp Searchlight is suffering – feral or not – and needs to be put down as a sign of compassion.[6][7][8] In the private's own words, he "may be suffering, but [he] still wants to live."[9] Once he is informed of Ranger station Echo, he will finally feel like he has a place in the world since he underwent ghoulification and will report there immediately.[10]

Behind the scenes


Kyle Edwards appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.


  1. 1.0 1.1 The Courier: "You aren't feral are you?"
    Kyle Edwards: "No, I'm not. Not yet anyway. I'm Private Kyle Edwards, former NCR trooper."
    The Courier: "Former? What happened?"
    Kyle Edwards: "Couldn't you tell? That damn radiation bomb got me. I can't serve the NCR like this..."
    The Courier: "Maybe they'll let you back in?"
    Kyle Edwards: "I'm not so sure about that. I don't know how the NCR feels about ghouls."
    (Kyle Edwards' dialogue)
  2. The Courier: "Can you tell me what happened here?"
    Kyle Edwards: "I don't really know the details of it, it all happened too quickly. I remember being hit by a blast of energy. Next thing I know, I wake up like... like this. I've been staying in this house ever since. I don't know much about what's going on outside, aside from the creatures that moved in since then."
    (Kyle Edwards' dialogue)
  3. The Courier: "Is that the only thing you're afraid of?"
    Kyle Edwards: "Radscorpions. Fuckers creep the hell out of me. I'm not going outside while they're still crawling around."
    (Kyle Edwards' dialogue)
  4. The Courier: "Why are you still here?"
    Kyle Edwards: "I'm here because I have nowhere else to go."
    The Courier: "There must be someplace you can go."
    Kyle Edwards: "Believe me, I'd love to leave, but I can't because I don't know what effect the radiation will have on me."
    The Courier: "But ghouls are immune to radiation."
    Kyle Edwards: "Yeah, but I don't want to go feral, and that's probably what more radiation would do to me."
    The Courier: "There's still radiation in your house."
    Kyle Edwards: "Look, just leave me alone. I'm not going outside."
    (Kyle Edwards' dialogue)
  5. Raul Tejada: "Cheer up, kid. It's not that bad. Sure, your skin rots off and you start to stink like a public toilet after Cinco de Mayo, but... umm...."
    Kyle Edwards: "What? How is that not bad? In fact, how could it get worse?"
    Raul Tejada: "Well, assuming you survive the radiation sickness, the lynch mobs, and the possibility of going feral, one day you'll get old and decrepit, like me."
    Kyle Edwards: "Oh god!"
    Raul Tejada: "What? Was it something I said?"
    (Raul Tejada's and Kyle Edwards' dialogue)
  6. The Courier: "Are there any other survivors?"
    Astor: "None that aren't feral ghouls. Those poor bastards - I can't imagine how they must be suffering. I'd like to put them out of their misery but I don't have the heart to do it. Can you do me a favor?"
    The Courier: "What kind of favor?"
    Astor: "I want you to put down the troopers that... changed. Turned into ghouls. We don't get many supplies out here, but I can offer you some caps and maybe some old gear."
    The Courier: "Why do you want to kill them?"
    Astor: "Those boys aren't themselves anymore. They're in pain, and you don't let good men suffer like that. Those troopers deserve a clean death."
    (Astor's dialogue)
  7. The Courier: "He is a ghoul in Camp Searchlight."
    Astor: "If he's a ghoul he should be put down. I can't let a rabid dog suffer."
    Astor: "But he isn't feral."
    Astor: "Doesn't mean he isn't suffering, or that he won't go feral eventually."
    Astor: "Is there somewhere else he can go?"
    Astor: "There's a ranger station north of here that has a few ghouls running it. Maybe they'll take him in."
    (Astor's dialogue)
  8. The Courier: "This is the last of the dog tags."
    Astor: "Thank you for the help. I can rest easier knowing those poor soldiers no longer have to suffer."
    (Astor's dialogue)
  9. The Courier: "He thinks you're suffering."
    Kyle Edwards: "Suffering? I may be suffering but I still want to live. You tell that bastard that I have every intention of doing so."
    (Kyle Edwards' dialogue)
  10. The Courier: "I heard Ranger Station Echo up north is manned by other ghouls."
    Kyle Edwards: "There's a Ranger Station run by ghouls? Finally, I feel like I have a place to go. Thanks for your help."
