Due process has its place, but sometimes it's just a waste of time. I'll need to know that I'm not going to end up right back in prison. My terms are the same. A pardon from the NCR and the freedom to do the job anyway I see fit.

— Meyers, on becoming Primm's sheriff

Meyers is a former sheriff incarcerated in the NCR Correctional Facility in Fallout: New Vegas.

Background

A lawman from a small town in the West, Meyers is a firm believer in justice... As long as it's his kind of justice. From time to time, he sped justice up, ignoring due process and other time wasters. Eventually, his practices caught up with him, he was charged with abuse of power, and sentenced to prison. Transferred to the NCRCF on a work release program, Meyers considers it a fair trade. He is not sorry for what he did, but justice is justice.[1]

When Samuel Cooke started the prison break, Meyers hung back and avoided getting involved.[2] He doesn't think much of the Powder Gangers, but he remains in the prison regardless. He believes that it's better for a convict like himself[3] to sit tight and wait for the NCR's return, rather than try to break out and end up with a bullet between the eyes.

Interactions with the player character

This character is involved in quests.

Quests

  • My Kind of Town: Meyers is a potential candidate for a sheriff, but he requires an NCR pardon.

Effects of player's action

  • If selected as sheriff and granted the NCR pardon, he will take over law enforcement in Primm, bringing justice swiftly, but sometimes without evidence. He will also defend the town to the end against the Legion, but perish in the end.
  • As Meyers moves to Primm when the player agrees to his conditions, it is possible to make him a permanent resident without making him sheriff, if the player selects a different law enforcement specialist afterwards.

Notable quotes

  • "[What did you do before you ended up incarcerated?] I was a sheriff, believe it or not, for a small town far to the west of here. The short version is that sometimes justice is a little slow, and I helped speed it up one too many times. I'm not sorry for anything I did, but I will do the time. Fair enough trade, if you ask me."
  • "[Tell me more about what happened in the prison.] I understand that Cooke was behind it all. I kept my head down the whole time. Didn't want any part of it. I stuck around, figuring the NCR would show up and put things back the way they were. No sense in making myself look guilty, right?"
  • "[Where can I find Cooke?] He went north with some of the other guys. Didn't say where, didn't say why. All I know is he's got some kind of score to settle with the NCR."
  • "[Why are you still here?] I'm not quite sure the kind of greeting NCR troopers will give an escaped con like myself. Figure it's better to stay put for now."
  • "[How would you feel about becoming Primm's new sheriff?] Assuming an NCR pardon comes with the job - and it had better - I'll also need to be able to do things my own way. Due process has its place, but sometimes it's just a waste of time. I'll need to know that I'm not going to end up right back in prison. My terms are the same. A pardon from the NCR and the freedom to do the job anyway I see fit."
  • "I can do right by this town, they were in need of some frontier justice."
  • "[Where should I go to get you a pardon?] There is a NCR camp down on the southern border of Nevada. Camp Mojave I think, try to find someone of authority there."
  • "Didn't know anyone would willingly walk into this place, not unless they were looking for trouble. What's your story?"
  • "Sounds like the NCR is finally getting off their ass to settle things around here. Don't expect me to get in their way."

Behind the scenes

  • A cut speech exists with in the game's files, meant to be delivered by Meyers to a small group of inmates close to Meyers should you recruit him to be the Primm's new Sheriff. In it, Meyers calls upon the other inmates to join him in forming a new police force in Primm, calling them "honorable and looking for redemption" despite not having "experience with law enforcement... at least not on the enforcement side."[4][5]
