Master merchant Rastello is in charge of the day to day operations of the caravan outfit. As Daren Hightower has locked himself in his Heights mansion, she handles all of the problems as the highest ranked trader of the company, second only to the head of the caravan house. This includes dealing with angry clients within the Hub and managing all water shipments without.

- Find the Water Chip: Upon interacting with the master merchant, Rastello will reveal to the Vault Dweller that there is a functional water chip within Necropolis, and sends them on their way.
Martha Rastello appears only in Fallout.
After handing in the water chip to Jacoren, it is possible to commission a second round of water caravans. Doing so will award 1000 XP, unmark the Find the Water Chip quest and attach a "days remaining" note to the Vault Dweller's Pip-Boy 2000. This will effectively reset the results of the Find the Water Chip quest; the citizens of Vault 13 will act as if the water chip has not been delivered and, after the time limit expires, the quest will end in failure.[verified]
