The Res is the name given by Joshua Graham to a location somewhere east of the Grand Canyon.[1]

Background[edit | edit source]

Graham believes the Dead Horses to have developed their language from a combination of Res and the languages of tourists vacationing in Utah and Arizona at the time of the Great War.[1]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Reservation is almost directly east of the Grand Canyon, although whether this is the same place as Res is unclear because J.E. Sawyer has deliberately been vague on the subject, even going so far as to indicate that Joshua Graham may not have the full facts correct himself.[2][3]
  • The Hopi and Navajo Reservations are both located east of the Grand Canyon.
  • Several Navajo words (e.g. yá'át'ééh, meaning "Hello" in the Diné language) are spoken by some of the tribals when greeting the player.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Res is mentioned only in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Honest Hearts.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

The Res is a term often used in reservation states to refer to any Indian Reservation.


  1. 1.0 1.1 The Courier: "Do they speak... our language?"
    Joshua Graham: "Most don't. It's been hundreds of years since the war. They've developed their own languages. Take the Dead Horses. We think they were originally refugees from a place called "Res," east of the Grand Canyon. They speak a combination of Res and a language spoken by travelers who were visiting Res when the bombs fell. Over time, the two languages blended. I was a translator years ago, but it's hard to keep up with all of the tribal variations."
    (Joshua Graham's dialogue)
  2. Is It correct that the tribals are descended from vacationers at the time of the Great War? I swear I hear a little German in the Dead Horses and Spanish in the Sorrows, but I also hear another language(s) mixed in and spoken by either tribe as well. | Formspring
  3. What is "Res" supposed to be? Are there clues that I'm missing that can help explain it, or is it meant to be a mystery? | Formspring
