Sheriff McBain was the sheriff of Primm. His and his wife's bodies were left behind at the sheriff's office to rot. The townsfolk of Primm give them both a proper burial once peace is restored.


A brave sheriff that protected Primm,[1] McBain was murdered by escaped convicts in his sleep together with his wife. This event was witnessed by Beagle who proceeded to spy on the convicts instead of anything else.


Sheriff McBain appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.


  1. Beagle: "Well! That was quite a per-dicament you rescued me from, there in the Bison Steve. A most unpleasant experience. Going in alone to rescue a hostage! My brother-in-law was brave like that. Made a fine sheriff. Until the Powder Gangers killed him. Problem is, there's still no law in Primm. What're we to do the next time ruffians menace us and hold us hostage?"
