Louis Salvatore is the patriarch of New Reno's third most powerful crime family, the Salvatores. He can be found in Salvatore's Bar.



An elderly, well-dressed gentleman, Salvatore's face is gaunt, covered with liver spots. Due to his age, he has trouble breathing and must depend on a steady supply of oxygen to control his respiratory problems, always wearing a breathing mask, connected to an oxygen tank by his side. This old man is a gangster from long ago and is the oldest mob patriarch in New Reno. His family has clung to their waning power for generations, growing envious of the Mordinos' power. After estabilishing a profitable enterprise with the Enclave, he ordered his men to massacre Mordino men in the street with laser pistols, their twitching bodies signifying his return to the game.

His right hand man and personal bodyguard is Mason, to whom he relegates the specifics of jobs for those under his employment. He is personally responsible for having Renesco sell Richard Wright the poisoned dose of jet that caused his death, in the hope of provoking a war between the Wright and Mordino crime families. He is also behind the Salvatore family's confidential trading agreement with the Enclave, supplying them with drugs and slaves in exchange for their energy weapons, which would give them an intimidating edge over the other New Reno families.

Interactions with the player character

Aside from giving out three quests for the Chosen One in order to make him a Made Man of the family, Salvatore can be assassinated by stealing his oxygen tank, but because of a bug you must also be holding onto the poisoned oxygen tank. After his assassination a bereaved Mason will bemoan never confessing his love for his paternal employer.

Louis Salvatore appears only in Fallout 2.

Behind the scenes

He is most likely inspired by a similarly-named character from the animated film Batman: Mask of the Phantasm. Not only do they share similar names but their appearances are similar, they are both quite elderly, and both need to keep an oxygen tank and mask at hand at all times.
