— Decanus Severus

Decanus Severus is a decanus found in Cottonwood Cove in 2281.


Severus is a Legion decanus stationed at Cottonwood Cove. Severus originally commanded the Legion outpost with a contuberium of eight legionaries, but he is now in charge of overseeing the stores of supplies for the Legion troops and commands the remaining troops along side Aurelius of Phoenix. Severus also coordinates the patrols. The primary issue these patrols face is the NCR's landmines, over their coordination or marksmanship.

Other interactions

  • If you have 50 Explosives skill you can tell Severus how to disarm NCR frag mines. This will earn you experience, and Caesar's Legion fame.
  • If you have the powder charge schematics you can teach Decanus Severus to craft them. The schematics for building powder charges can be found in Cell block B of the NCR Correctional Facility on the first left top bunk inside the first locked cell on the left.

Trade items




(The ammunition and food supplies are of negligible value when compared to the 10 caps Aurelius offers. However, both provide equal degrees of fame per NCR dogtag).

Legion Fame

Turning in the NCR dogtags one at a time will yield the maximum fame per tag. Turning in 100 dogtags one at a time is sufficient to become Idolized, 50 for Liked, 15 for Accepted and 1 for Neutral.



  • Decanus Severus is notably taller than the player character.


Severus only appears in Fallout: New Vegas.

Behind the scenes

In Latin, decanus refers to a military rank of "a commander of ten soldiers", while 'severus' is translated as 'stern' or 'severe'.
