Oswald the Outrageous
And now... The show you've all been waiting for... Oswald the Outrageous!!”— Rachel Watkins, Nuka-World
A pre-War entertainer who worked for the Nuka-Cola Corporation at Kiddie Kingdom, Oswald was a magician giving shows at King Cola's Court. They were remarkably popular, and tickets to them sold out daily within a few hours of the parks opening.
When the bombs fell in 2077, he and his fellow entertainers took shelter in the buildings of the amusement park, eventually forming a thriving settlement. Unfortunately, they had one, key problem: they were all exposed to radiation and were slowly turned into ghouls, bit by bit. Oswald weathered the change well thanks to his resolve and strength of spirit; this was in part due to his focus on Rachel, a fellow entertainer who departed Kiddie Kingdom to find a cure for the Affliction, as they dubbed the radioactive degeneration of brain tissue that causes ghouls to go feral.
Oswald waited two hundred years for her return, focusing his efforts on defending the Kingdom from foes without, particularly raiders. He turned it into a deathtrap, all for a distant memory of a woman who may very well be dead. His focus allowed him to retain brain function even as the accumulated exposure to radiation turned him into a glowing one, while his talents as a magician came in very handy in the countless battles he fought in defense of his fellow ghoul. Even if it's not magic, so what? It works.
