“The Raiders only accept the meanest and toughest SOBs around. You have to be bloodthirsty, violent, extreme.”— Garl Death-Hand
The Khans are a raider tribe in Fallout.
Khans operated under Garl Death-Hand, a violent man who killed his own father to secure his position. The group raided smaller settlements and communities while trading with larger towns like Junktown and the Hub. The group raids Shady Sands, shooting people and stealing food. Ian mentions that they hate the other two groups that attack the settlement, the Vipers and the Jackals. When the group kidnapped Tandi, the Vault Dweller came into the settlement and fought the group during her rescue. Darion, son of Garl Death-Hand, escaped the conflict and rebuilt the Khans, known as the New Khans.
Ezekiel in the Mojave Wasteland mentions both groups of Khans being wiped out.
The Khans appear in Fallout and are mentioned in Fallout: New Vegas.
