For the character from the Grand Canyon in Van Buren, see Santiago (Van Buren).

It is a dream come true. Santiago never thought he could work in such a wonderous den of vice and iniquity.

Santiago is a character living in Freeside in 2281.

Background[edit | edit source]

Santiago is a smooth-talking con artist living in Freeside. He has a Spanish accent and uses it to get out of paying for drinks. Thanks to his dishonest ways, he owes Francine Garret 212 caps and has no intention of paying them back before being confronted by the Courier in the side quest Debt Collector.

Other interactions[edit | edit source]

  • After Wang Dang Atomic Tango has been completed, the Courier can have sex with him for 25 caps.
  • There is a dialogue option where the Courier can ask for a discount to Mick & Ralph's for 50 caps (25 caps with a Barter or Speech check). He will instruct one to tell Mick or Ralph the word "extravaganza." However, Mick will tell the Courier that he or she has been set up since Mick and Ralph's does not do discounts. There will be no dialogue option to talk about this once the Courier returns to Santiago.
  • Intimidating him by passing a Speech check of 50 will cause him to pay the Courier 256 caps.
  • If the Courier kills Santiago, they will find 25 caps on his body and they will neither gain bad Karma nor infamy in Freeside even after finishing Wang Dang Atomic Tango.

Attempting to collect the debt will simply result in a selection of dialogue options where the Courier has no choice but to pay Santiago for his bogus discount password to Mick & Ralph's. [verified]
