View Full Version : Backstory Interpretation

Just wondering what everyone got from the backstory. Spoilers.

It was obvious that you, Courier Six, had apparently led to the accidental destruction of the Divide, but I'm still a little fuzzy on what "the package" was. Was the package just a regular detonator, or was it in fact the ED-E that you meet that is also used by Ulysses to attempt to destory NCR and the Legion. So does it imply that that version of ED-E was your old companion or what? Because he doesn't recognize you.

Was Courier Six a member of the NCR, The Legion, or an independent? Because I don't know if even Ulysses really knew for certain.

And although it's obvious that Ulysses was out of his mind, did he have a point about Courier Six?

yeah I'm scratching my head over the whole story of this dlc. I think I either missed 1 or 2 points in the beginning or Obsidian didn't explain it but I have no idea what my motivation was for the entire trip.

I think the backstory will match up to whatever faction respect is the highest.

I was lost as well. Does he really think I did it on purpose? My story kept saying I started in the Divide created it, then left. When I came back the missiles detonated.

I think he was just Batshit crazy

The backstory was that Courier Six who was a neutral party at the time working for a delivery service delivered a package which was an ED-E eyebot which then set off bikes that ravished the Divide and you had no idea what the package was but Ulysses blames you.
