— After answering "Maybe" to "Are you the Van Graffs emissary?".

The strange man is a character living in the Mojave Wasteland in 2281.


He is a Legion agent that has been sent to pick up a package from the Van Graffs. Given his role, it is likely that he is a disguised Frumentarius, serving under Vulpes Inculta. Killing the strange man results in no Karma loss, but Caesar's Legion infamy is gained.
