Chavez is a Powder Ganger living at Powder Ganger camp south in 2281.


Chavez is a Powder Ganger who, with a small crew of fellow escaped convicts, formed a splinter gang that has moved south of the NCR Correctional Facility to plunder passing-by traders and other Mojave inhabitants. Chavez and his crew decided that instead of turning in their "acquisitions" to Eddie, they would keep it all for themselves.
