They're the best of the best and the baddest of the bad. Short of a centurion or praetorian, they don't come any tougher. You come across a pack of them, weigh your options carefully.Chief Hanlon

A veteran decanus (plural decani) is an officer in Caesar's Legion in the Mojave Wasteland in 2281.


Veteran decanus officers actually have exactly the same health and skills as a prime decanus, however their Legion veteran armor offers slightly superior protection compared to Legion prime armor, and they are often equipped with better and superior weapons compared to the Prime Decanus.
