Gametitle-VBThe following is based on Van Buren and has not been confirmed by canon sources.
Howdy, stranger! Not many souls come visit the Grand Canyon these days. I'm Santiago, leader of this sorry-looking bunch. Who might you be?

Santiago is a salvager in the Grand Canyon in 2253.


An old salvager working the edges of the Grand Canyon, Santiago operates a trading post not too far away from the sky tram connecting the two edges of the Canyon.

Effects of the player's actionsEdit

Once the air tram has been repaired the Prisoner can suggest the idea of making money by charging people to use it. Santiago will watch while the Prisoner is gone and he can come back to collect his share once a week.[1]


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

    Repair - {c255}Yup, I actually got the parts back. Seems that the other guys weren't able to trade them away yet, lucky for you. Here you go.{u}
    Liberate - {c255}I figured you might do that. Look, when you make your move, me and the boys will back you up. I can't promise we'll be much help, but we might distract 'em enough for you to get your shots in.{u}
    B.O.M.B.-002 - {c255}Hmmm... some of the other guys say a big fireball smacked the canyon a good one a few years back. They said it landed somewhere to the west. Could be this thing you're looking for.{u}
    Share - {c255}Thanks! You won't regret this! Check back every couple of weeks for your share of the loot.{u}
