Hello stranger. Welcome to Shady Sands.

Seth is the captain of the guards of Shady Sands in Fallout.


Standing watch at the town's gates, Seth will be one of the first inhabitant of Shady Sands that visitors meet. He is a pleasant person with the interest of the community at heart. His eagerness covers up any gaps in his training, as does his devotion to the settlement. He is a favorite of Aradesh, who tried to set him up with his daughter, but the plans fell through.[1]


Seth was instrumental in developing the New California Republic, and was the founder of the New California Republic Rangers, remembered as the First Ranger. He disappeared, along with President Aradesh, on an expedition to find Vault 13, the home of the fabled Vault Dweller.[2] No trace of the expedition was ever found. He is immortalized on the $20 NCR bill.

Query Response
Aradesh "He is the leader of our community, and a true hero. You can always find him at work in the communal hall."
Garl "He leads the Khans. He is one of the most dangerous men that has ever set eyes on Shady Sands. He leads the raider clans with a heavy fist."
Hub "Much farther to the south than Junktown. The Hub is the largest city I've heard about. Must be a thousand people there, at least."
Junktown "It's 4-6 days to the southwest. Good trading occasionally, but more often than not, they try to stiff us."
Khans "They are a lawless group who pretend to be some people from the far past."
Radscorpion, Radscorpions, Scorpion, Scorpions "Nasty creatures with a deadly venom."
Razlo "Our Doctor. See him if you are hurt."
Sands, Shady "You're standing in it."
Seth "That is me. I work with Aradesh to make sure everyone is safe."
Tandi "She is the daughter of Aradesh. Some day she could lead us, but she must learn to temper her ways."
Water "Sorry, I can't help you."

  1. Tandi: "{188}{TAND_47}{Seth's the captain of the guards. My father tried to set us up once, but he is not my type.}"
  2. Tandi: "{315}{tand14b}{My dad and Seth searched for years trying to find Vault 13. They died looking - always said it was west of here. If somebody were to find Vault 13, that'd do us even better than 15.}"
