Our wealthiest client has a thing for ghouls, and a thing for cowboys. He wants an escort who can satisfy both fetishes.

James Garret is the co-owner of the Atomic Wrangler Casino, along with his twin sister Francine Garret. He lives in Freeside in 2281.


James is looking for prostitutes for his escort service. Speaking to him can begin the quest Wang Dang Atomic Tango which, despite the dubious connotations, does not give any negative Karma.

Though he denies it, James is also an alleged closet robot fetishist. With a Speech of 40, talking to James about Fisto after the quest, Wang Dang Atomic Tango will result in some humorous dialogue.
