We Salvatores...we will rule New Reno. If a child must die to insure that, it will be...done. There is no other reason.

Louis Salvatore is the leader (or don) of the Salvatore family in 2241. He can be found in Salvatore's Bar.


An elderly, well-dressed gentleman, Salvatore's face is gaunt and covered with liver spots. Due to his age, he has trouble breathing and must rely on a steady supply of oxygen to control his respiratory problems, always wearing a breathing mask, connected to an oxygen tank by his side.[1] This old man is a gangster from long ago and is the oldest mob patriarch in New Reno. His family has clung to their waning power for generations, growing envious of the Mordinos' power. After establishing a profitable drug and slave enterprise with the Enclave, he ordered his men to massacre Mordino men in the street with newly-acquired energy weapons, their twitching bodies signifying his return to the game.

His right-hand man and personal bodyguard is Mason, to whom he relegates the specifics of jobs for those under his employment. He is personally responsible for having Renesco poison the dose of jet that caused Richard Wright's death, in the hope of provoking a war between the Wright and Mordino crime families.

Interactions with the player characterEdit

Interactions overviewEdit


Effects of player's actionsEdit

  • After his assassination, Mason will complain he never confessed his love for his paternal employer.

Respect pointsEdit

Louis Salvatore has a "respect counter" that must be filled to get to specific objectives, like Joanne Lynette. Salvatore is more demanding than her, with "respect" actively falling if the Chosen One doesn't address him properly.

With CH 6 or IN 8, the player gets the "courtuous" lines, and "disrespectful" lines otherwise. Salvatore's scripting is much more careful than Lynette's, with the very few lines fitting the pattern but not affecting the counter more predictable and logical (such as apologizing to him after being turned down on the laser pistol request).

Thes "respect" requirements are:

Note that the "respect" counter" changes mid-dialog, directly after a response.

  • Mr. Salvatore has additional scripting that makes him suspectible to a single super stimpak.


Louis Salvatore appears only in Fallout 2.

Behind the scenesEdit

He is most likely inspired by a similarly-named character from the animated film Batman: Mask of the Phantasm. Not only do they share similar names but their appearances are similar, they are both quite elderly, and both need to keep an oxygen tank and mask at hand at all times.
