Hernán “Snake” Vargas[1][2] is a Desert Ranger, appearing in Wasteland and Wasteland 2.

Background[edit | edit source]

Wasteland[edit | edit source]

Snake Vargas was one of the wildest, most fun-loving Rangers in the entire outfit, loving himself a good bar brawl and a scrape or two. However, he was also a capable Ranger in every aspect and eventually was one of the Rangers who destroyed Base Cochise, ending the robotic threat to the wasteland. He earned his nickname, Snake, for being a magnet for snakebites - and surviving them every time.[3]

Wasteland 2[edit | edit source]

A stiff, bearded older man wearing a hard-worn ranger uniform, and a battered old cowboy hat. General Vargas walks with a cane, but he's not helpless. After defeating Cochise, Vargas became Ranger General in charge of the Desert Rangers. He abandoned his nickname, Snake, some time after the destruction of the base, around the time of the last bar brawl he participated in, circa 2092.

Until the death of Ace in 2102, he became increasingly withdrawn, spending more time in his office than in the field. It was that event that caused him to re-evaluate his priorities and get back in the saddle once more, replacing Wade Woodson as dispatcher and guiding Ranger Team Echo through the wastelands. He doesn't fight in the field anymore, due to the fact that he has a lame leg and walks with a cane.

The revolver with numerous barrel notches and pearl grips is kept in immaculate condition, though, just in case.
