Vaughn Gallery

Vaughn is a main character in Telltale Games' Tales from the Borderlands. He serves as the deuteragonist in Rhys's side of the tale. Being Rhys's closest friend, he is a vital character to the story, accompanying him the majority of the time during the game.


Vaughn is a likeable, intelligent, and loyal character. Despite his wits, he is also shown to be naïve and dependent, as shown when he and Rhys were under attack by bandits. He is also shown to be afraid of dangerous situations, often whimpering and cowering in fear. However, he will try to pull through these for his friends, displaying his loyalty.

In Episode 2, his 'fearless' side comes shining through. He proudly announces that he 'is not afraid', although flinches at the sound of Rhys receiving a call from Yvette. Vaughn's trust also becomes questionable, as it is revealed he arranged a deal with Vasquez to 'sell out' Rhys. He assures Rhys that it was only to 'get him off our back', sincerely apologizing for his actions.
