Oh... I guess that's understandable. Got to watch out for numero uno and all. Just leave me...

Carlos is a homeless water beggar sitting across the bridge from Rivet City in the year 2277.


Driven slightly demented by lack of sustenance and fearful of his life after a narrow escape from a super mutant bonfire, Carlos has set up a begging station at the entrance to Rivet City. Through the haze of dehydration, he remains hopeful that a water caravan or kindly stranger will cross his path.[1]
