Gaius Magnus is a Legion centurion located in Dry Wells in 2281. He appears only after completion of the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Lonesome Road if the Courier chooses to launch Ulysses' nuclear missiles against Caesar's Legion.
Background[edit | edit source]
Gaius Magnus is a centurion who had conquered the 87th tribe that assimilated into Caesar's Legion. He was given the distinct honor of wearing the unique Armor of the 87th Tribe, probably created for him after his victory. In 2281, he is in Dry Wells with some of his legionaries, who become marked men after the Courier sent an atomic strike on the area.
He has very high health and like other ghouls and marked men also constantly regenerates health from the high radiation in the area.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- Like Ulysses and Colonel Royez, Gaius Magnus is immune to knockdown attacks, such as the Ranger Takedown move or the special attack of the bumper sword. Due to this, he will simply freeze in place for the duration of the knock down.
- He, like Ulysses and Royez, has 10 points in every SPECIAL stat, further contributing to his status as a boss character.
- Although he is armed with a minigun, Gaius Magnus will put it away after the first shot and rely solely on his machete for combat. This is because his combat style was set to "NVDLC04CSMarkedMenMelee" in the G.E.C.K. editor, causing him to prefer melee weapons over firearms.
- Although he is a 'named' member of the Legion, Gaius does not count towards the player's tally for the GRA Challenge Against All Tyrants, because add-ons cannot interact together.
Appearances[edit | edit source]
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
- His name is likely to be an amalgamation of two Roman generals who lived during the late Roman Republic, Gaius Julius Caesar and Gnaeus Pompeius Magnus respectively. Both were part of the First Triumvirate of Rome, along with Marcus Licinius Crassus.
