I fought in many battles for the Legion. Eventually, Caesar chose me to lead his Praetorian Guard. It was a great honor.

Lucius is one of Caesar's most trusted men and leader of the praetorian guard.


Lucius is the commander of the praetorian guard in Caesar's Legion. If Benny is captured by Caesar's Legion, it's he who tortures Benny to learn the purpose of the platinum chip.[1]

Despite his age, Lucius has been able to maintain his position in the praetorian guard for thirteen years as no one has challenged him in a battle to the death to take his place. Caesar suspects this may be more out of his subordinates' respect for Lucius than a result of his strength.[2]

Other interactions

  • With an Unarmed skill of 50, Lucius can be asked to teach the praetorian unarmed technique, Legion Assault. However, he will not teach the Courier if they have a poor reputation with Caesar's Legion.
  • If the Courier has the required Unarmed skill but has low Intelligence, the dialogue option to learn Legion Assault will change into, "Can you teach me how to fight like the Pray-whatever?"


Notable quotes


Lucius appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.


  1. The Courier: "What happened after Benny was caught?"
    Caesar: "He was brought before me, along with the Platinum Chip. That's how I knew he wasn't some kind of Profligate infiltrator. Benny tried to sell me a story, but Lucius has a way coaxing the truth out of captives. Everything just comes spilling out."
    (Caesar's dialogue)
  2. The Courier: "How long has Lucius been the head of your Praetorians?"
    Caesar: "Lucius has been the head of my guard for five years now. He was a subordinate guard for eight before that. No invitee has dared to challenge him yet. Maybe it's an issue of respect - he is getting on in years."
    (Caesar's dialogue)
