I knew it was too good to be true... there are no good souls in the Wasteland. Go. Just leave me alone to die...

Carlos is a homeless water beggar sitting across the bridge from Rivet City in the year 2277.


Driven slightly demented by lack of sustenance, and fearful of his life after a narrow escape from a super mutant bonfire, Carlos has set up a begging station at the entrance to Rivet City. Through the haze of dehydration, he remains hopeful that a water caravan or kindly stranger will cross his path.[1]
