Gametitle-VBThe following is based on Van Buren and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

El Diablo, born Miguel Vargas, is a serial killer that can be found in Denver in 2253.


He went crazy one night and killed six people in two different homes. They call him the "Vampire Killer" because he bites his victims on the neck during or after killing them. He says he started killing that night in Hoover Dam because "some bitch stole his hat". Last anyone heard, he went east. Bob the Bounty Hunter in Hoover Dam has a bounty out on Diablo's head; he knows of one person who set out to look for him but never came back, because Diablo killed him.[1]

El Diablo is insane. He really thinks he is a vampire, and refuses to come out during the day (he can only be found at night).[1]


El Diablo was to appear only in Van Buren, the canceled Fallout 3 by Black Isle Studios.
