    I'm about to do a story centering around Boxcars, but I'm stumped on how to do his dialogue to a believable standpoint like how his character is presented from NV. He curses constantly and I don't know where to put the expletives at just the right moment. I don't want to be the story trite with cursing all the time without his characterization being lost. Any help?

    It depends on the context I guess. He seems like the type that'd use swearing every other word anyway, but keep in mind the guy has his fuckin' legs broken and is pissed off. If in your story he's pre-legs crush, he might speak diffently or with less intensity

    Well, Boxcars is a streetwise type of fella, generic thug and he doens't have much of a personality besides being a Power Ganger, he doesn't need to curse all the time, just needs to have a bad attitude and general lack of respect for authorities and pretty much everyone else
