Metzger is the head of the Slavers' Guild in The Den.

Background

A horribly rude and gruff fellow, Metzger runs the Den Slavers Guild with an iron fist. He commands a lot of respect, but most of it is forced, as he is little more than a crude brute, controlling Den through fear and intimidation. Rebecca, representing the more honest townsfolk, is not happy with the state of affairs, but is unable to move against him, although she'd reward the person who kills him handsomely.

Seeking more influence, he is investing in several projects he hopes will make a lucrative turn for him. He is mainly involved with trying to ascertain the process for making jet. He is employing a local gangs to guard the raw chemicals needed probably to produce jet, that he stores in an old church. He is apparently making money off acting as a middle man between Vault City and New Reno for the chemical shipments (both towns have no direct relations).

Vic, the Klamath antiques dealer, tried to swindle Metzger by selling him a broken radio to eavesdrop on transmissions between the Enclave and New Reno. Obviously, the slaver master did not take to this too kindly and locked the trader like a slave, forcing him to repair the radio or rot, whichever came first.

Interactions with the player character

At the start of the game, he holds Vic hostage, and is willing to release him in exchange for money and repairs to his radio. If you're a female, you can offer to sleep with him for a discount.

He is the proper person to talk to if you are willing to join the gang, and become one of the Slavers. If you are playing a bad-ass character, then this is a very good thing to do. You can go on slave runs, capture slaves, and sell them to Metzger for a lot of money. However, once you've become a slaver, you will get a tattoo identifying you as one. This means that you will lose a chance for getting many sub-quests, since most people will never trust you (nor will even want to talk to you), once they see the tattoo and know that you're a slaver. However, being a slaver will increase the mob's at New Reno respect for you.

Behind the scenes

Judging from the file names in the datafile, Metzger was supposed to be called Caesar. The name was later used in Van Buren for Caesar, the leader of another slaver organization, called Caesar's Legion. 'Metzger' is also German for 'butcher'. One of his battle taunts "Aah, fresh meat!" refers to famous quote of the Butcher - a monster from Blizzard's Diablo. The name Metzger may also be a reference to the notorious Californian racist Tom Metzger.
