Background[edit | edit source]
Stationed at Bitter Springs, Captain Gilles has an unfortunate task. With the NCR focusing its manpower and resources elsewhere, she is hard-pressed to keep the camp operational and prevent it from turning into a dying spot for refugees. Perpetual resource shortages, a lack of manpower, and poor state of the refugees are bad. But what's worse, for six months, someone has been shooting at the camp, killing soldiers and refugees, demoralizing an already distraught populace. She has put requests in to Camp Golf, McCarran and Forlorn Hope to increase their manpower and capability, but they are all currently dealing with problems of their own. At this point, she is desperate enough to take any help offered to her, regardless of where it came from.

Appearances[edit | edit source]
Gilles appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
- The Courier: "What is this place?"
Gilles: "This is the Bitter Springs refugee camp. We've been maintaining it for a few years now, ever since Caesar's Legion started seriously pushing west. Most of the people here were displaced by the Legion's advance. At first there weren't many, but lately it's been more than we can handle."
- The Courier: "What can I do to help?"
Gilles: "At this point, I'll take anything you can give me. We need more troops, fresh supplies, and medical relief. As if that wasn't enough, someone's been coming out of the mountains at night, stealing supplies and picking off my people."
- The Courier: "What's this about someone killing refugees?"
Gilles: "It started about six months ago. At first it was just supplies going missing - we figured it was refugees. Then people started dying. Always a single bullet to the head, always from extreme range. We've lost eight refugees and three soldiers to this son of a bitch. We know he must be hiding out in one of the caves up in the mountains, but I don't have enough men to send out looking for him!"
- The Courier: "Where would you get new troops from?"
Gilles: "I don't know. The NCR's stretched thin as it is. I've put in requests at Camp Golf, Forlorn Hope, McCarran - but things are no better there. Maybe if their situations improved, they'd have men to spare. Or maybe they'd listen to someone with a reputation for helping the NCR."
