Proto id00000141 (Slaver Overseer)

What are you chump, blind? This is a slave pen. You want to know more, talk to Vortis.

Slave overseer is a slaver living on the outskirts of Shady Sands in Fallout 2.


A stocky man with a submachine gun slung under his arm and the Slavers Guild tattoo on his face, the overseer manages the guards at Vortis' Holding Center and enforces order among the slaves kept inside their cages.[1] He is a rather well informed man, having studied Vault technology for a time,[2] and surprisingly easy going person for a slaver. Must be the childhood spent looking for Vault 13, a popular pastime around Shady Sands.[3]

His brother was killed by the NCR Rangers, leading him to hate the organization with a passion.[4] He is also bothered by the fact that he can no longer find honest work due to his career as a slaver.[5] However, him keeping an ear to the ground has resulted in plenty of knowledge on the more unusual inhabitants of the town, including an Enclave deserter...[6]

  1. 1.0 1.1 Slave overseer's character description: "{100}{}{You see a stocky man with a submachine gun slung under his arm.}"
    "{101}{}{It's the slave overseer.}"
    "{102}{}{Well, from his tattoo you know he's a slaver. Looks like he's in charge of the guards around here.}"
  2. The Chosen One: "{127}{}{Ever hear of a GECK?}"
    Slave overseer: "{138}{}{GECK, eh? Back when I was studying Vault tech, I read about those. Supposedly every vault got one and it was supposed to be the first thing used once a vault got opened. They say that's how Shady Sands got its start - from a GECK. That help at all?}"
    The Chosen One: "{139}{}{You studied vault tech? Impressive. Say, I got some more questions for you.}"
  3. The Chosen One: "{126}{}{I'm looking for Vault 13. Ever hear of it?}"
    Slave overseer: "{135}{}{Everybody's heard of Vault 13. When I was a kid, me and my friends used to go prospecting for it. Supposed to be east of here, so we searched everything but never did find it.}"
  4. The Chosen One: "{125}{}{What's the deal with these Rangers I hear about?}"
    Slave overseer: "{131}{}{Those bastards killed my brother and then said it was for the good of the people! I want them dead. If you can help, talk to Vortis.}"
  5. The Chosen One: "{129}{}{I'm looking for work. Know anybody who's hiring?}"
    Slave overseer: "{144}{}{Me, I'm always on the lookout - problem is, nobody ever wants to hire a slaver anymore. Vortis, my boss, has got something hush-hush. And in town the ranchers at the Stockmen's Association are always hiring plus Dorothy can always use a hand at the powerplant if you got skills. Word is even President Tandi's looking for a specialist.}"
  6. The Chosen One: "{128}{}{Know anything about an outfit called the Enclave?}"
    Slave overseer: "{141}{}{The Enclave.... You know, there's a doc in town, goes by the name of Henry. One night when he was drunk he started going on about some guys he called the Enclave.}"
    The Chosen One: "{142}{}{That's just what I needed to know. You are a well-informed man.}"
