Loyal is an elder member of the Boomers at Nellis Air Force Base in 2281.
The "old man" of the Boomers, Loyal is the chief mechanic of the Nellis Air Force Base keeping the Solar array and other key machines functioning and has grown up on Nellis since leaving Vault 34. Unlike the other boomers, he does not have the same xenophobia as the other boomers do and actually seems to appreciate the Couriers help. He can be found in the southern hangar of Nellis. His house is the farthest to the left of the three hogans on the back side of the two main hangars.

- Black Mountain and I found him at Nellis later in the game. He just walked home. Can't promise this outcome for everyone. Sometimes he is just behind Tabitha's building on the south west corner of black mountain walking into the fence constantly. My game glitched and this is where I found him, luckily right after he just walked through the fence and out of
- If the player has completed Volare! before doing the Render Unto Caesar or The House Always Wins questlines, Loyal becomes useless when attempting to get The Boomers to side with either faction. Despite the quest arrow pointing to him, the only remark he will give is about the resurrected plane.
