Sam van Graas is the Mayor of Rodia in Wasteland 2.
The mayor of Rodia is a mild-mannered, middle-aged guy who has only the best interests of the town at heart. Unfortunately, he is a poor judge of character and this has led to him hiring Steven Dengler's leather jerks to protect the town from miscreants and ne'er-do-wells. When he realized his error, he tried to protest, but all that earned him was a place on the gibbet on the pride and joy of the city.
- Unless Steven Dengler is dead, releasing the Mayor from his gibbet will lead to an immediate face off with Dengler and his thugs. When they are killed, Rodia becomes free.
- Saving Mayor van Graas unlocks further quests for Rodia related to re-establishing trade with other settlements.
- However, if Chris van Graas was killed in the liberation of Rodia, the Mayor will not interact with the Rangers beyond yelling at them for killing his son.
