The Death of Boone’s Wife in Fallout: New Vegas
Fallout: New Vegas is an action role-playing video game developed by Obsidian Entertainment and published by Bethesda Softworks. It is the fourth major installment in the Fallout series, and was released in 2010 to critical acclaim.
At the outset of the game, you are introduced to the character of Boone, a former NCR 1st Recon sharpshooter in search of the person responsible for killing his wife, Caroline.
Who Killed Caroline?
Caroline was killed by a slaver named Benny, who had previously attempted to blackmail Boone and a group of other NCR 1st Recon sharpshooters into turning against their leader, Colonel Cassius.
Benny had abducted Caroline and demanded that Boone help him in his plot against the NCR. Fearing for Caroline’s life, Boone reluctantly agreed. However, after successfully infiltrating the NCR camp, he realized that Benny had tricked him. Benny had no intention of letting Boone and Caroline leave alive, and so he shot Caroline and left her for dead.
What Happened to Benny Afterward?
The player is then tasked with tracking down and eliminating Benny in order to avenge Caroline’s death. After arriving in the city of New Vegas, the player eventually finds Benny in the Ultra-Luxe casino. A fight ensues and Benny is killed, thus bringing an end to his villainous reign.
Benny was ultimately responsible for Caroline’s death in Fallout: New Vegas, a tragedy that deeply affected Boone and served as motivation for the player’s character to track him down and seek revenge. In the end, Benny was killed and justice was served.
