The Omertas are a faction in the Mojave Wasteland in 2281.

History

Prior to being recruited by Mr. House, the Omertas were a wasteland tribe known as the Slither Kin - a tribe grown infamous for the practice of luring unsuspecting travelers into their camps before drugging them, then murdering or enslaving them, sometimes holing up in a stronghold for years, other times leading a nomadic existence in restless pursuit of their next big score. The Omertas have just one rule: never betray the family. Everything else is permitted. Apparently the viciousness of the Slither Kin appealed to Mr. House by reminding him of certain criminal elements that once operated in pre-war Las Vegas.

The Omertas control the Gomorrah casino, a sleazy vice den on a grand scale, and as such embodies the ruthless exploitation beneath the glitz and glamour of the Strip's neon signs. They also control all prostitution that goes on around the casino. Male residents at The Tops remark that 'the broads over at the Gomorrah look better'.

While by outside appearances the Omertas seem content with their lot, the family's penchant for treachery and murder is alive and well, and the tribe's leadership is collaborating with Caesar's Legion to bring about the Strip's downfall.

Interactions with the player character

The way to come across the Omertas is through the main storyline. For various organizations you are asked to get in contact with the Omertas at some point. You start out a quest with them when you're asking around to know what the family has been up to. A member of the family comes up and asks why you've been asking questions about them. To get info out of him you must enter his room and steal his diary from his desk, or pickpocket him. At this point there are several ways to proceed (see side quest: How Little We Know).
