我的軍團服從我,即便我命他們赴死。問我為什麼?因為他們是為了侍奉更崇高的目標而生,而且他們知道他們別無他擇。

恺撒, Fallout: New Vegas

凱薩的軍團是個具獨裁、傳統主義、帝國主義色彩的奴隸社會,且為極權專政。 2247年,由愛德華‧薩洛 (以凱薩聞名) 與約書亞‧葛拉漢姆建立。軍團的士兵有著組織良好且帶古羅馬風格的作戰方式,主要征戰於過去被稱為亞利桑那州的科羅拉多河及大峽谷地帶,甚至開始推向西方。軍團的首都位在佛拉格斯塔夫。凱薩的軍團包含著數個重建的部落及他們的後代。軍團的象徵是紅色為底色的金公牛,源自於尤里烏斯‧凱薩所建立的第十合組軍團的軍旗。

背景编辑

在2246年,天啟追隨者派遣一個九人組成的小隊前往亞利桑那廢土,研究當地部落的語言。小隊成員包含愛德華‧薩洛,與他一同的是新迦南的傳教士約書亞‧葛拉漢姆,一名部落方言的專家。然而他們的旅程未過多久便被黑足部落所俘虜以要求贖金。 就在當時,黑足部落正面臨著與其他七個部落的戰事中,但卻缺乏作戰的技術。薩洛在違背同伴們的希望下,協助黑足部落對付他們的敵人以確保他與同伴們的安全。薩洛提供給黑足部落關於槍械維護、小組作戰、爆裂物製作以及軍事等知識。黑足部落十分欽佩薩洛,甚至使他成為了他們的領導者。這個時刻,薩洛使用了凱薩的名號,重新組織了整個部落,號令他們成為了「軍團」。

凱薩構築的軍團作戰方針建立在兩種概念:各個擊破與全面征戰。軍團由弱至強擊敗了這七個部落,且完全地統治他們原先支配的領地及人民。在戰事中被征服的人民若不是被徵召入伍或成為奴隸,就是被殺死。凱薩眼中的這些部落就像在「戰爭中遊戲」,這些部落從對於凱薩的戰術感到陌生,他們對於戰爭的理解不過是個小小衝突,從未真正體驗過如此巨大的衝突征戰。 結合凱薩以及被宣稱為「荒地軍團長」的葛拉漢姆的領導下,軍團開啟與數個部落的戰事 ,藉由這些部落的俘虜組成了一支狂熱忠誠軍隊。就在 2271年,八十六個部落已被征服,成為了東方科羅拉多河地帶最為強大的社會組織。軍團開始向西方推進,來到了莫哈 維,並於2277年建立於科羅拉多河之上的山丘要塞。這股推進的力量最終帶著軍團對上新加州共和國,開啟了爭奪莫哈維的戰役。

在荒地軍團長的帶領下,為了奪取戰略要地以及跨越科羅拉多河,軍團的行軍對上了在胡佛大壩的新加州共和國駐軍。 就在這場名為第一次胡佛大壩之戰的戰事中,荒地軍團長起初佔了上風。軍團長將新加州共和國的守軍擊退,並帶領著他的部隊越過大壩。由包含第一偵查軍團以及NCR遊騎兵的領導軍力,執行了向西跨越至博爾德城的戰術徹退,過程中運用精準地槍法射殺了數位軍團士官。軍團長在無力改變作戰策略以發覺前方的設局下,命令軍團士兵強行進攻遊騎兵。此刻,軍團長並不知道他們已中了NCR埋在撤退路線與博爾德城本身下方的C4炸藥陷阱。當軍團勢力進入城市,NCR隨即引爆炸藥,造成非常嚴重的傷亡數,癱瘓了軍團的攻勢。NCR部隊接著進行反擊作佔,擊退軍團並將他們的勢力推回大壩以東。凱薩對於軍團長的失敗感到憤怒,並打算以儆效尤。凱薩的禁衛軍以瀝青淋在軍團長身上並將其點燃,將他推下大峽谷深處。凱薩將軍團長的名字視作禁語,如今成為了下位士兵及奴隸們的低聲耳語,他們稱其為燃燒者。

2281年,凱薩的軍團於西方重新振作,重建軍隊並緩慢地入侵新維加斯的城市。軍團持續與NCR爭奪莫哈維,摧毀了數個NCR基地如遊騎兵哨站:查理以及探照燈營地、佔領原屬於NCR的尼爾森城,並且製造不安與恐懼於整個莫哈維地帶。就在第二次胡佛大壩之戰前的某個時刻,凱薩的軍團在百夫長蓋烏斯‧馬格努斯的領導下征服了新的部落,將軍團的部落數目提升至八十七個。

內部體系编辑

A Caesar's Legion camp

军团是第一个、也是最主要的奴隶制军队,其唯一的领袖便是凯撒。当凯撒征服了那些废土的人们后,他便剥离了他们与部落身份之间的联系,使得他们得以顺利融入并成为他军队的一部分。于是这里便再没有其他部落,只有军团本身。 

为一支奴隶制军队,军团拥有非常严格而分明的等级制度和阶层体系。 所有身强力壮的男性都将成为奴隶战士,并且只为一个目的:为凯撒而战,直到死亡。这个信念的灌输一直伴随着军团士兵从生到死的全过程;如果是在军团出生,则从抚养便开始灌输,直到训练,从不停止。  军团战士们无条件的忠诚于他们的领袖:为他而活,为他而战。然而与许多人预期所相反的是,经验的积累和技能的提升对于提高军团战士的地位没有任何正面帮助。虽然有些人能获得更好的装备、并执行更加危险的任务来更好的履行作为一个军团士兵的职责,但当一天结束时,所有的军团士兵仍然是奴隶——直到他们停止履行他们的职责或者犹豫,并被军团当做废弃的工具一次性抛弃的那一刻。 

[1]

妇女在军团中所扮演的角色,从本质上讲,主要体现在后勤和支援方面。凯撒明文禁止妇女参加战斗,而是让她们作为宪兵(caretakers,管理员、看守者),战地医生(healers,治疗师),助产士,或繁衍后代来支撑军团持续不断的活动与扩张。几乎所有的军团战士都会表露出非常明显的对于女性的厌恶,并对她们不参加战斗的特殊规定抱有意见。  这里要再次重申,辐射:新维加斯中出现的**隶表明,军团中女人与男人的地位完全由凯撒一人决定

军团常规部队的结构完全参照了罗马帝国后期的军队编制在凯撒军团中,最大的军事单位为大队, 约由480名步兵组成。各大队进一步划分为百人队, 由80名步兵组成。(在古羅馬,百人隊通常包含80名職業戰士以及20名非戰鬥人員). 每个百人队又被细分为10个 "十人队" ("小队"), 由8名步兵组成,并由一名伍长带领。 

Those living under the Legion's control are considered subjects, not members of the Legion proper. Lands under Caesar's protection enjoy stability and security far greater than lands outside its sphere of influence. Traders that have to cross NCR's territories with a guard contingent can safely travel on Legion trade routes alone, without fear of being raided[2]. Caesar is considered a harsh, but peaceful lord by those who live in his domain but have not been enslaved into his army[3].

中心思想编辑

核战争所导致的人类社会急剧削弱与逐步消亡提供了一个机会,使得某些人或者势力可以将人类团结在一面单独的旗帜之下。军团试图利用这个机会,通过残酷而无情的军国主义手段,来创建一个位于凯撒领导之下的社会。凯撒本人则声称,原子弹被战神从遥远的火星送往地球并引爆,正是为了这个目的。 

军团的最终目标是统治(团结)全人类。他们认为民主化的社会只会被当做强有力的工具来掩盖大部分人类毫不作为的、一成不变的现状。它通过不断诱使民众产生消费欲望并对之上瘾,来有效约束公民的个人财富增长,并使之迅速消解。 这不仅从某方面解释了军团对于使用酒精和化学兴奋剂的鄙视,也包括那些毫无意义的奢侈品,更解释了为何军团会将大部分的人归为“动物”,并毫不犹豫的动用暴力手段来强迫后者。 对军团来说,“动物”存在的唯一目的便是为了生存繁衍。所谓的人性,在他们眼中则仅被对于死亡的恐惧和生存的本能所替代。那些能够直面死亡的人也能更轻易的牺牲自己,作为追求一个更加美好的社会所要付出的必然代价。

凯撒极端仇视民主社会,尤其是NCR,因为后者对自己强盛的夸赞早已超过了其真正匹配的程度。除此之外,凯撒也极端厌恶本位主义*和消费主义*,因为它们将人类变成了“动物”,或者简单到只会关心个人生存利益。  凯撒坚信这是他的机会,也是他的使命去将全人类团结在一面旗帜之下,以迎接那个只以价值来衡量人类,并给与相应回报的新纪元。这种思维方式充分的体现了新加州共和国和凯撒军团之间的不同。NCR则认为重商主义*(商业本位)将最终为废土带来和平与繁荣。虽然现在贪婪和腐败成风,但当和平与稳定最终来临之际,民众将通过改革获得更多的权利。 然而,凯撒将其当成一种诅咒而并非祝福,他认为它只提供给了人类/动物们被贪婪所捕获并驱使的可能。 尽管NCR正倾巨资去进行研究,希望能提升他们公民的平均寿命;而军团却认为,盲目的提高人类的寿命只会增加养育其的成本与花费,并将延缓伟大目标(更美好的社会)的实现过程,人们盲目的延缓其寿命,却不去尝试创造一个没有死亡恐惧始终笼罩他们的社会。这就是为何军团总是拒绝使用医疗器械,除非在少数极为罕见的情况下。NCR和凯撒军团的意识形态之间几乎毫无共同点,这也是为何它们必将互相质疑乃至兵戈相向,直至其中一方被彻底击败。 

军团的语言编辑

大部分军团的成员将凯撒的名字读作/ˈkaisar/。而废土居民和NCR,以及大部分年长的军团成员使用英国口音,则将其读作/ˈsiːzər/。军团成员都讲究古典拉丁语发音,如罗马传统问候语“"ave" (hail) [ˈaweː]”。士兵被稱為 "legionaries" (而不是legionnaires, 這是現代慣用語,應用於 Légion étrangère)。被军团所喜爱的人将被称呼为amicus,拉丁语意为同志、朋友。 

流通貨幣编辑

凯撒军团使用两种旧形式的货币,这两者也同样被用于罗马帝国时代。  这两种货币由银或金打造,每个货币的一面都印有凯撒的侧面头像。尽管凯撒军团和莫哈维地区的派别的关系并不融洽,但军团货币依然在内华达州内流通,因为它们确实具有很高的经济价值。  军团货币与瓶盖的兑换率,为每4瓶盖换一枚银币;每100瓶盖换一枚金币。

军团银币的正面印有年轻凯撒的侧面头像,背面则是凯撒、格拉汉姆、卡尔霍恩三人的追随者形象。正面的拉丁语铭文(“Caesar Dictator”)意为“独裁者凯撒”或“伟大的统治者凯撒”;背面的拉丁语铭文(“Magnum Chasma”)意为“伟大的深渊”、“大裂缝”,指大峡谷。 这枚银币的意义很简单:就是为了单纯的纪念年轻的凯撒前往大峡谷,并最终统一数个部落,成为统治者的旅程。

这种造型的金币和银币都曾被用于古罗马帝国,1枚金币可以兑换25枚银币。

信仰编辑

军团信奉的是在2250年,由自称为戰神之子的凯撒所创造的戰神信仰。军团的成员们认为,战神用烈焰清理了地球,以方便凯撒能够征服地球,并将其与混乱之中解救出来。 It is not known whether any of the other Roman gods are revered as well. 军团的大多数成员无视他们在古罗马帝国的基础上建立的社会基本文化,而坚持由自封为火星之子的凯撒来肆意定夺。.

社会结构 编辑

Legion Massive Black 1

军团的社会体系有严格的分工和定义。任何其体系之外的人均被认为是无律者(缺少道德观念);而那些既处在军团体系之外,又是敌对关系的势力(例如NCR和其领地内的人民)则被称为放荡者(稍微缺乏道德观念)。 至于那些被捕获的“猎物”则被认为是最低一级的存在。他们通常只会被当做奴隶。如果连成为奴隶都无必要,他们便会被毫不留情的杀害。 

奴隶通常由那些被捕获、已经被认为不适合加入军团作战的人组成。他们被坚持要求具有一个奴隶应有的美德(注解均为西班牙语:Honestas,诚实;Industria,敬业;Prudentia,谨慎),并严格服从其主人的命令而不去质疑。  奴隶通常会被给予一个新名字,并穿戴胸前画有大大的红叉的破烂布衣。在刚被捕获的阶段,奴隶被强制要求在脖颈上穿戴项圈。后来,随着僵局被打破,对军团的进一步深入了解,你可以在军事要塞里看到一些被移除了项圈的奴隶。奴隶的孩子们从出生起便被从父母身边带走,并交由军团的女祭司看管,不断地向其灌输凯撒的学说。那些日后身强力壮的奴隶后代则会被送往军团,像其他军团成员一样为其服务。 

军团成员是军团最主要的军事力量,并且构成了军团社会体系中的大多数。有才干的男性将被送往军团服役,军团将会按照古罗马的规矩来管束他们。军事等级的晋升纯粹是优胜劣汰的法则——如果一个军团成员能在战斗中证明自己,他便能够被晋升;如果不能,他也同样侥幸逃过一死(从战斗中幸存)。

軍隊编辑

Caesarslegionmember

A veteran legionary

The entire Legion military army is led by a Legate, who answers only to the Caesar. In addition to this, the Legion's forces have two special branches, the Frumentarii, who are tasked with infiltration and subterfuge, and the Praetorians, whose sole role is safeguarding the Caesar. A few are also assigned to protect the Legate.

Unlike the NCR Army, Legionaries are not organized by rank but by direct combat experience. The most inexperienced of them, recruits (equivalent to pre-Marian Hastati or post-Marian auxiliary skirmishers), wear the simplest of garments and are usually marched in the front line. Survivors of multiple skirmishes can expect to be recognized as prime legionaries and considered for Decanus status, or may simply be marched in the middle of the ranks (equivalent to the pre-Marian Principes).

The most experienced of Legionaries, veterans (equivalent to pre-Marian Triarii), make up the rear guard and join battle only if recruits and prime legionaries fail to meet their objectives. This practice is not a matter of rewarding elite soldiers for their service; by allowing the Legion to hold the best warriors in reserve, the practice forces an enemy weakened by previous waves to engage the fiercest Legionaries.

The main commanders, centurions and the Legate, are also the deadliest members of the Legion. Unlike their counterparts in the NCR or any other organization, each has reached their rank through their battlefield accomplishments, and their armor reflects that fact - it is made up of trophies taken from defeated enemies. However, they rarely enter the battlefield, as they are few in number and possess valuable leadership skills. The loss of a centurion will likely result in a dramatic loss of unit cohesion.

A special post in the Legion military is the Vexillarius (standard-bearer). The standard-bearers carry the sign of the Legion into battle and act as rally points for Legionaries.

Legion Massive Black 7

The discipline of legionaries is absolute. In combat, they obey every order without question and if needed, will gladly sacrifice their lives. The reason for this is simple: punishment for failure is severe. Legionaries that fail will be lucky if they escape with their lives. Those that fail will often be crucified or hacked to pieces by Praetorians in front of Caesar. It is also possible that the Legate will invoke decimation, where every tenth legionary will be beaten to death by his comrades as punishment. Life expectancy in the Legion army is low - any Legionary who can survive extended service is a formidable opponent.

While this disciplined style of warfare is extremely effective, it does create a few very exploitable weaknesses. Soldiers in the legion are trained to obey their superiors in all situations; this often makes the Legion troops, especially recruits, slow to adapt to changing battlefield situations. If the officers and veterans are eliminated, the chain of command will be in severe danger of collapsing. With recruits unable to control the situation, the leaderless army will become disoriented and confused, ultimately rendering it easily routed or wiped out. Under the command of Chief Hanlon, the NCR demonstrated and exploited these weaknesses to great effect during The First Battle of Hoover Dam.

The Legion excels at melee combat, as evinced by their choice of weaponry - primarily, the machete, which cripples limbs. They are not averse, tactically speaking, to using firearms - scouts carry hunting rifles, while ranked Decanus may use a cowboy repeater. Ultimately, this leads to extremely effective Legion raids and surprise assaults. Legionaries are more versatile than the NCR troopers in that they are skilled with both firearms and melee weapons, as well as having been trained to fight aggressively under any and all conditions, whether armed or not. Legion soldiers have nearly double the hit points of NCR troopers, and fare favorably against them in battle, especially at close range. Legion raids typically involve suddenly attacking, killing everyone (sometimes taking slaves) and leaving quickly. As Lanius states, their forces are much better suited at taking positions than holding them due to their up close style of fighting. While Legion raids are often very successful, it is worth noting that the number of positions the Legion actually controls over a period of time in the Mojave is very small compared to the NCR.

与外界的关系 编辑

Legion Massive Black 3
作为一个中央专制、独裁帝国,军团的目标在于征服整个已知的世界并使其团结在自己的旗帜下。在2281年,它在科罗拉多河与NCR相遇,并第一次被迫停滞下来。那些不愿加入军团而又公然与其敌对的部落担忧,他们也会像那些向军团投诚,却又被凯撒抛弃了自己先前的允诺——将会让投诚的部落们安全而独立的发展——强行吸纳入自己军团的部落们一样,成为军团征服扩张中的受害者。 凯撒的这种狡诈而无情的铁腕政策导致除了沙漠游骑兵外,甚至甚至如范·格拉夫 Van Graffs这样凶狠毒辣的组织也反对军团。虽然许多文明团地并不喜欢凯撒军团的方式,但军团确实在融合并吸收部落方面取得了巨大的成功。 部落对于力量的尊重与追求通常使得他们更偏向于追随并加入军团,而不是NCR这一边。白腿部落是凯撒军团坚定的盟友,曾被作为外籍军团用于对新迦南发动的战争中。 

在2281年,在胡佛水坝遭受空前惨痛的失败后,军团开始寻找并联络莫哈维当地的派系势力,以便于在NCR的领土内播下仇恨的种子并煽动起共和国的内乱。他们与大可汗,黑手党(原文的Omertas指黑手党独有的“沉默法”,又称“拒绝作证原则”),恶魔帮结盟,来帮助军团自己更加迅速的同化或消灭莫哈维地区。 

戴尔·巴顿往往更倾向于在军团的领地内进行贸易,归功于军团对于匪徒与、强盗的严厉打击以及野生生物的彻底扫荡,据称可以减少雇佣守卫的费用,也不用交一大堆乱七八糟的苛捐杂税。即使卡西迪商队的卡斯也承认并欣赏军团的管理手段,他们不仅吸引贸易者,商人,交易社区,尤其是和NCR领地内横行的匪徒和其无法控制的地区形成了鲜明的对比。然而,军团作为一个整体,其不受欢迎的原因还是显而易见的。

据尤利西斯称,凯撒明确指示军团成员不准猎杀信使,因为许多信使实际上是军团的特务。

科技水平 编辑

凯撒坚信,正是对于技术的严重依赖大大削弱了人类,也正是那些技术引发了这场世界大战。  As such, his 与之对应的,他的军团多数为低科技含量的军事组织,依靠人海战术,人类的本能和严苛的纪律来实现他们的目标。一个典型的军团成员会穿模仿自古罗马片甲罗马板条甲、由战前运动装具通过改装金属板和皮革,包括一个运动员头盔及一条短袍。在战斗中,军团成员使用结构简单的枪械(一般是转轮手枪或杠杆式步枪),动力全套,或近战砍刀、投矛,或用处理过的金属材料制作的、模仿古罗马的短剑和标枪。  但仅凭此便认为他们的技术相当原始是不正确而不客观的。标准的战斗装备就是这么简单,能够使用大型防御阵地(例如军事要塞)修筑后的废料便能进行大规模的生产,以迅速武装人数庞大的步兵军团。而官衔越高的军团成员,其装备的武器也越先进,甚至足以与NCR相媲美。在重要的战役中,那些百夫长们使用更为先进的武器,例如反器材步枪,神射手卡宾枪,和超级动力锤。凯撒的禁卫军普遍装备了枪铳拳套,来进一步提升他们的战斗力。  尽管从来没有军团成员装备和使用能量武器,但他们同样表现出了从范·格拉夫家族购买这些武器的兴趣。尽管军团成员均不使用动力装甲,但那些拼凑的百夫长铠甲中却总能见到T-45d动力装甲的部件。 令人感到奇怪的是,军团拥有大量的隐身小子,但却只被枯井以及分水岭的烙印者所使用。和军团维持极好的关系后,主角信使便能从军团定期获得隐身小子。 

被明令禁止的军事技术似乎只关乎战斗机器人。凯撒不喜欢通过使用机器人与人类交战来打赢一场“零伤亡”战争的想法。正因为这一点,他要求信使破坏掉豪斯先生在诸城岭下的机器人基地,即使信使愿意使用提供这些战争机器来破坏NCR。凯撒并没有阻止卢修斯试图通过修理一门榴弹炮来炮击消灭NCR第一侦察营狙击手和精锐游骑兵狙击手的举动。 军团将会占领太阳神一号,如果玩家成功地激活了阿基米德武器,选择支持军团,而且完成了任务“Hey man,when in Rome.”棉花丛湾的军团指挥总部也出现了一部电台,证明军团确实会使用这种通信手段,但其整体更倾向于不使用电力的通信手段。 军团并不像NCR那样真正需要胡佛大坝的电能,但却并不像反对使用化学药物、酒精和战斗机器人一样强烈。军团的成员就像新卢德分子,希望能回到罗马时代的生活,这种想法自然和使用“旧世界”的科技发生了无可避免的冲突。尽管军团也会在必要的时候使用科技,但与废土上的大部分势力不同,军团对于科技从来都没有任何深入的兴趣。 

Notes编辑

  • Siding with the Legion can make keeping companions very difficult while following the main questline, and most human companions will likely abandon the player over time. Veronica Santangelo will likely leave when the Brotherhood of Steel bunker is destroyed, Craig Boone will leave when the player kills several NCR soldiers, and Arcade Gannon will leave when your reputation with the Legion grows too high. Rose of Sharon Cassidy allows the player to work with the Legion despite her dislike for them, Raul is somewhat supportive due to their ability to provide security, and Lily Bowen is too mentally damaged to have any opinion whatsoever. It is possible to maintain all companions through a mix of not speaking to Gannon, not traveling with Boone while killing NCR and luck in Veronica's case.
    • If the Courier is well-respected by the Brotherhood, and Veronica has never hassled the Courier for provoking the Brotherhood, then using the self-destruct password while Veronica waits in a faraway location will usually keep her from dropping you. She will instead tell you to never do it again. This is easy, as she and Paladin Sato (in the Brotherhood of Steel safehouse) are the only remaining members of the Brotherhood in the Mojave Wasteland (unless you destroy the bunker at night, when the patrol is out.)
  • Although initially neutral towards the player character, Legion patrols in the Mojave Wasteland are openly hostile towards most travelers, including prospectors and traveling merchants, and will attack them on sight.
  • The Legion's territory is known to be considerably safer than NCR territory, especially in the Mojave. Due to Legion patrols as well as their intolerance of Non-Legion groups, there is little or no raider activity in Legion-controlled territory, allowing caravans to safely travel without the fear of being attacked.
  • Cannibalism is readily accepted and even practiced by some high ranking officers, like Aurelius of Phoenix. There is little discussion of this policy, but it seems to be well known as members of the White Glove Society are aware of it.
  • 如果邮差为女性,那么不论她的声望或者游戏进度如何,她都不会被允许进入竞技场。
  • While several non-player characters, such as Cass and Major Knight allude to homosexuality being accepted (if not the norm) in the Legion, Jimmy claims from first hand experience that homosexuality is punishable with death. It's unclear which claim is correct or how they reconcile. The best possible theory is that homosexuality isn't tolerated, but most outsiders use the concept to slander them (i.e. cracking wise about their togas being "skirts").

由來编辑

Legion

范布伦计划中的凯撒军团军旗战车

凯撒军团的概念最初在未被发行的、黑岛辐射3的制作过程中被克里斯·阿韦洛提出,后被J·E·索耶加以完善与阐述: 
我所进行的为数不多的几项重大改动之一,就是从范布伦计划中提取出了一个克里斯创造的组织并将其修改(很可能是错误的误解造成的)为一个怪异的、和罗马帝国有关联的主题,配合临时搭配的服装和传统的那些。

在由克里斯·阿韦洛所主持的纸笔测试中,第一个被确定的单位出现在凯撒军团处于敌对关系的圆环火车站里。更深入一步的是,赫克特和凯撒军团的女性后代们和男性处于完全对立的状态,这将会允许玩家根据自己的性别来选择其中一方并利用他们来建立一支军队,非常像那部电影《邮差》。 [4]

Sharptooth, a member of Hangdog tribe, was planned to be a spy for Caesar's Legion, reporting to their agents in Denver; however this was only because Caesar holds Sharptooth's sister as a slave. If this became known, the other Hangdogs would demand to banish him and his family to the wasteland. Bares His Teeth would have no qualms about doing this.[5] Before being merged by designers with the Blackfoot tribe, Hangdog's tribe could be planned to live in northeastern Colorado, near Denver.[6]

Appearances编辑

Caesar's Legion appears only in Fallout: New Vegas. They were also to appear in Black Isle Studios' canceled Fallout 3, as well as Black Isle's never-realized Fallout 4. Caesar's Legion was also to play in a minor role in the canceled Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel 2.

Behind the scenes编辑

Breeding issues are pretty huge in cultures that took a big step back from infant mortality progress made in the last 100-200 years. Prior to the last few centuries, infant mortality was often around 50%-ish. Child mortality (prior to age 12) was about 60%. Those are pretty awful odds of reaching adulthood.

Remember that Caesar's Legion is basically a roving army that continually breaks down and absorbs tribes that it conquers. That can only go on for so long, and Legionaries who are indoctrinated from birth are even more loyal than adolescents who are integrated. Breeding new generations of Legionaries is vital for the Legion's continued existence.
Even though breeding is incredibly important in the Legion, there isn't any concept of family outside of the Legion's structure. All of the places where the player encounters the Legion are forward camps where direct military service is given the most weight and is of the most immediate importance. Because only males are involved in that service, they look down upon females even though it's incredibly short-sighted.
The additional Legion locations would have had more traveling non-Legion residents of Legion territories. The Fort and Cottonwood Cove made sense as heavy military outposts where the vast majority of the population consisted of soldiers and slaves. The other locations would have had more "civilians". It's not accurate to think of them as citizens of the Legion (the Legion is purely military), but as non-tribal people who live in areas under Legion control.
While Caesar intentionally enslaves NCR and Mojave residents in the war zone, most of the enslavement that happens in the east happens to tribals. As Raul indicates, there are non-tribal communities that came under Legion control a long time ago. The additional locations would have shown what life is like for those people.
The general tone would have been what you would expect from life under a stable military dictatorship facing no internal resistance: the majority of people enjoy safe and productive lives (more than they had prior to the Legion's arrival) but have no freedoms, rights, or say in what happens in their communities. Water and power flow consistently, food is adequate, travel is safe, and occasionally someone steps afoul of a legionary and gets his or her head cut off. If the Legion tells someone to do something, they only ask once -- even if that means an entire community has to pick up and move fifty miles away. Corruption within the Legion is rare and Caesar deals with it harshly (even by Legion standards).

In short, residents of Legion territories aren't really citizens and they aren't slaves, but they're also not free. People who keep their mouths shut, go about their business, and nod at the rare requests the Legion makes of them -- they can live very well. Many of them don't care at all that they don't have a say in what happens around them (mostly because they felt they never had a say in it before the Legion came, anyway).[7]
