Ulysses was once a package courier with the Mojave Express, but mysteriously left, leaving the delivery of the platinum chip to the Courier. An experienced warrior and scout, he is a crafty, resourceful, and dangerously intelligent man, who is capable of surviving even in the most hostile and inhospitable of terrains. Ulysses was once a member of the Twisted Hairs, a powerful tribe in Arizona that forged an alliance with the fledgling Caesar's Legion in 2247, and became its main scouting force during the conquest of Arizona. Thanks to his ability and his forceful personality, he quickly became an important, indispensable frumentarius of the Caesar's Legion, but the rest of his tribe was not so lucky and was swiftly enslaved after the Legion's conquest of Arizona ended. While scouting, he came across a community known as "The Divide," but it was annexed by the New California Republic soon after this discovery. The Courier delivered a mysterious package to the NCR in the Divide, which contained launch code to ICBM's. Someone activated the device within the package and it began to "speak." The codes activated the ICBM's underneath the ruins of the Divide, causing massive earthquakes and nearly killing Ulysses. Since this incident, Ulysses has developed a spiteful attitude toward both the Legion and the NCR, and requests that the Courier journeys to the Divide that he now walks alone and that they have an ending to things.
