It was heaven-until you find that all the glitter is made of broken dreams and all the praise hides a knife pointing at your ribs.

Carlitos Wayne[1] is a man hiding out in Vault 21 in Fallout: New Vegas.


Carlitos Wayne was an Omertas made man working as a croupier at the Gomorrah. Unfortunately for him, he ran afoul of the Omerta lieutenant Cachino over his relationship with one of the prostitutes, Joana. Since Cachino also wanted the hooker, he accused Carlitos before Nero and Big Sal of stealing Omerta funds, resulting in a hit being put out on Wayne. Since then, Carlitos has been on the run.

He is hiding out in the Vault 21 hotel as a guest of Sarah Weintraub, drinking himself to the ground. He can be typically found in the hotel's diner sitting at a back table, occasionally moving to one of the vault's bedrooms to sleep.
