    If the topic title isn't clear, I mean anything that made them stand out, or how they acted, or who they emulated.

    My first character was a middle-aged Manchurian gunslinger. I wanted to base him off my great-grandfather, who based off journals and such he had written, was pretty sharp with a .45

    Mine was the kind of guy who accidentally helps the Powder Gangers and then is forced to side with Caesar's Legion due to the resulting infamy with NCR. :(

    Mine was a softspoken Kif Kroker-type who looked something like what would happen if your father from Fallout 3 stepped into the teleporter from The Fly with a weak-jawed, anemic Jewish screenwriter. I sided with House because, well, delivering the chip to him was the job I was under contract for, darnit, so it's not like I had much of a choice. Go with the flow, don't make waves, just following orders, etc.

    Mine looked like a mexican gunslinger with the msutache included, but he was an unarmed character, he also was a very curious guy listening carefuly even to the stupidest people, and he also swang for both teams, he sided with YesMan because thats what looked like the best option at the moment. He also let Benny escape, but when them oment of the thurt would come he would bash people's brains with his fists.

    At the beggining, my character was a relatively "Why the fuck me?" type of guy, who didn't like his position much, but ended up staying for the ride, which went on to his looks - slightly longer, but messed up light brown hair, and a goatee. Later on, he developed, and became a kind-hearted and friendly guy to most of the people, with the Jim Raynor attitude who knew how to get on with people, but on the other side, he was a ruthless sniper who always got the job done.
    He decided to help the NCR, because he believed that they, and they only, had a real chance against the Legion, which he despised.

    My first character was a grey-haired gun user with a mustache and a silver tongue. As always in my first playthrough in this kind of games he was (mostly) Mr. Nice Guy, and ended siding with Mr. House.

    My guy was a survivalist gunslinger (similar to Jules) who played every faction until the point of no return. Suffice to say, I was pleased when House noted my Courier's NCR reputation was beneficial to his plans. He was good-aligned, but wouldn't hesitate to steal an item if it meant increasing his odds of survival.

    Visually, he had blond hair (I think the style was bedraggled or wastelander) and preferred light armor, specifically the JaySus Red Rogue Coat.

    Well, mine was the usual shooter, who at first wanted to help the NCR but, due to an miss-use of the base of Helios One, got on hated status and had to go along with Yes-Man.

    But still, it was worth it.

    Mine was an attempt at making a character that looks and acts a lot like myself, unfortunately my character tried to be a godlike everyman like in FO3 (yeah didn't work out so well). So I deleted him.

    My guy was a complete sociopath. In it entirely for himself and lusting for power. Inspired by films like 'Casino' and 'Scarface' I wanted the world to be mine, Vegas to be mine, I wanted to be the boss.

    And I was. I don't care what Yes Man said. It was ambiguous, open to interpretation yeah? Well my interpretation was this- 'more assertive' means he was reprogramming himself to only take orders from me, okay? That's my interpretation. I worked seventy five hours to take Vegas. I did... questionable things. Now after all that I AM THE BOSS. That's it, that's how it ended.

    And if ANYONE tries to argue anything different I will find you and I will cut you !

    A smart, suave gambler/gunslinger who decided to side with the NCR.
    Was aiming for a nice bloke with a slight cold side, such as when he just walked into the Lucky 38 and proceeded to point blank House in the face with an anti material rifle.

    My first character had high Charisma, Luck and Intelligence, tagged skills Speech, Lockpick, and Survival (in hindsight, a bit of waste as Hardcore mode wasn't as hardcore as I'd hoped), who was a failed writer-turned-desperate alcoholic whose best moments would come when he was drunk, hence the need to take on crappy, dangerous jobs like that of a courier. A good 25 or so pounds, minimum, was set aside for alcoholic beverages in his inventory.

    Ah, Cass and I had some great times :D We never trusted House for a second, NCR were too incompetent with their bureaucracy, Legion were arseholes, and so Yes Man was perfect. Bloody shame though that we ended up killing so many innocents at the 188 Trading Post and Sloan when NCR turned hostile (no, not Snuffles, too!), and I definitely didn't like it when the Remnants mistook us for the enemy at the Dam :(

    2nd playthrough as a homicidal, beautiful, dumb blonde with high explosives was great fun, and being the first woman honoured by Caesar was a great ending.

    I went with a socially maladjusted bisexual alcoholic. She turned out nicer than I'd planned.

    My Legion CHaracter was a buisexual woman that wasn't over using sex to accomplish her goals, but I decided to make her a little more Legion Like by making her focus on Melee, guns, Repair and Survival. Then I fought the Battle of Hoover Dam ALongside Veronica, wich is pretty funny, two women help the Legion take control in the Final Battle. there should be a special ending for that.
