The NCR Rangers are the biggest threat. Without them, the NCR is nothing.

Lucius is a high-ranking member and aging veteran of Caesar's Legion. He is one of Caesar's most trusted men and the head of the Praetorian guard, a detachment of the main army tasked with protecting important Legion officials in 2281.


Lucius is an old legionary in Caesar's Legion. He became a Praetorian Guard in 2268, and became their leader in 2276. In 2277, he took part in the First Battle of Hoover Dam under the command of the legate, Joshua Graham, and therefore is one of the few who know who the Burned Man really is. During the battle, he found himself in Boulder City, but he managed to survive the trap of 1st Recon snipers set by the NCR. In 2281, if Benny is captured by Caesar's Legion, it's he who tortures Benny to learn the purpose of the platinum chip.

Other interactionsEdit

With an Unarmed skill of 50, Lucius can be asked to teach the Praetorian unarmed technique, Legion Assault. However, he will not teach you if you 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 quotesEdit

  • "I fought in many battles for the Legion. Eventually, Caesar chose me to lead his Praetorian Guard. It was a great honor."
  • "The NCR Rangers are the biggest threat. Without them, the NCR is nothing."
  • "Caesar has taught us that over-reliance on firearms can only weaken us in the long run. It's why we train heavily with our blades and our fists. Unlike an NCR trooper, a Legionary is always ready to fight regardless of the circumstance he finds himself in."


Despite his age, he 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 at the head of the Guard. Caesar suspects this may be more out of his subordinates' respect for Lucius than a result of his strength.


Lucius appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
