You see a rifle barrel sticking out of the dinosaur's mouth, you got a fifty-fifty shot it's me. Otherwise, it's Boone.

Manny Vargas is a former Great Khan and retired NCR soldier living in Novac in 2281.

BackgroundEdit

He is one of the two former NCR 1st Recon snipers who are now sentries in Novac. He and Craig Boone alternate shifts in Dinky the T-Rex's mouth. Born in North Vegas, Manny grew up with his cousins, and eventually joined the Great Khans with them. Then "something happened" (Manny doesn't specify what) and he decided to leave. He enlisted in the NCR military and was recruited into 1st Recon, becoming Boone's spotter and best friend.

Being a former member of the Great Khans, he made it a point to be absent when 1st Recon was deployed to rout out the gang at Bitter Springs. Even though he wasn't at the battle of Bitter Springs and harbors no ill will towards the NCR, it was the reason he didn't re-enlist; if asked, he says "it did take something out of it for me. Just wasn't the same." After retiring, he convinced Boone and his wife to move to Novac. Carla hated Novac, and she and Manny didn't see eye-to-eye on anything. When Carla disappeared, Manny was the first person Boone told, but Boone ended their friendship after seeing that Manny was glad.

QuestsEdit

  • Come Fly With Me: Manny will ask the player to help him with Novac's ghoul problem in exchange for information about the men who attacked them
  • They Went That-a-Way: Manny has some information that could prove to be useful in tracking the Courier's attackers down.
  • One for My Baby: Manny is one of four people you can ask to stand in front of Dinky the T-Rex, although he is not the true culprit of the crime.

InventoryEdit

NotesEdit

  • If Come Fly With Me is initiated and completed before speaking with Manny, he will not be aware of it and will be surprised when you talk to him about it.
  • Manny has no tag skills; all of his stats are 5 across the board. This makes some of his skill values lower than the derived value from his stats.
  • If One for My Baby is completed without talking to Manny first, if the player talks to him later, they still have the option of asking who Boone is, although the player clearly knows who Boone is.
  • Manny will always greet you with "What's going on, man?" regardless of your gender.

Notable quotesEdit

  • "You see a rifle barrel sticking out of the dinosaur's mouth, you got a fifty-fifty shot it's me. Otherwise, it's Boone."
  • "Man, you name it. See, I grew up in North Vegas. Me and my cousins. We were some bad seeds. Got in with a gang. I loved it. Then something happened, and I couldn't handle it anymore. So, I enlisted. Earned my future. Brought down my best friend to share that future with me. And here was this woman who was too good for it, trying to take him away. So yeah. I didn't see eye-to-eye with the bitch."
  • "Ah, well... I just felt like it was time, you know? Wanted to have a home. Plus I was up at Camp Golf when Bitter Springs went down. I faked like I was sick to get out of going, because I knew some of the people there. But when everybody came back nobody would tell me what happened. And people would call us murderers sometimes when we showed up to secure towns."
