Paladin Vargas is a Brotherhood of Steel Paladin patrolling the lobby of the Galaxy News Radio building. He is wearing Lyons' Pride Power Armor & Recon Armor Helmet and carries an AER9 Laser Rifle. After completing the Following in His Footsteps quest he can be seen patrolling the Citadel.

Vargas appears to be unkillable during the GNR Plaza firefight but is killable in the final mission Take It Back. Vargas has been found dead in front of the citadel at the start of Take it Back, as Liberty Prime will not move forward without Lyon's Pride assembled this will prevent the quest from being finished. To fix this, one must move Vargas's body to the base of primes feet.



The sergeant of Lyons' Pride, Vargas is 30, and a no-nonsense, professional type. He is Sarah 's right hand man; she relies on him for his experience and advice, and he supports her and mentors her. There is a very close but mostly unspoken friendship between them.
