If I wasn't in this fight for my country, you couldn't pay me enough to screw with those maniacs.

— On the Fiends

Major Dhatri is a Californian officer in the New California Republic Army stationed at Camp McCarran in Fallout: New Vegas.

Background[edit | edit source]

A veteran of the New California Republic Army, Dhatri holds the rank of Major. He is the officer in charge of troops stationed at McCarran, but currently has one thing on his mind: the bounty hunt for leaders of the Fiends, Violet, Cook Cook and Driver Nephi. He shares a particular kind of hate for the three, as they are responsible for the deaths of over twenty NCR troopers serving under his command.[2] He manages the bounties due to patriotism - otherwise, no amount of money would convince him to pick a fight with those Fiends.[3]

Horrors of war aren't new to the Major; he was a Captain during the Bitter Springs Massacre and helped salvage the operation, when it turned out that 1st Recon opened fire on unarmed civilians. He was forced to act, as the Major in charge suffered a nervous breakdown and was unable to command. Dhatri was promoted to Major for his efforts.[4]

After Bitter Springs, he adopted and raised Bitter-Root, a Great Khan orphan. As father, he is particularly proud of his son's membership in the Alpha Team of 1st Recon, under Lt Gorobets. He has accepted the fact that he might, one day, send his child to death. His only consolation is that he'll at least have the chance to see him one last time as his CO.[5][6] His son, Robert Dhatri, died defending Hoover Dam in 2277.

Quests[edit | edit source]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Should Bitter-Root die during game, such as when sent to fight Driver Nephi, Dhatri will mourn over Bitter-Root's death.[6]

Notable quotes[edit | edit source]

  • "Pack of drugged-out killers. They're addicted to every stim, every pill, every psychoactive enema on this fucked-up earth. I've got three Fiends I want dead, and I don't give a goddamn how it gets done. That sound like something that interests you?"
  • "If it's bad news, you can take it up with the Colonel. If it's good news, it better involve some dead Fiends."
  • "This isn't a public relations office. If you're not here about a bounty, you can go pester the Colonel."
  • "I see you're still alive, and that's promising. Any luck on that bounty?"
  • "Perimeter's been quiet since you left. The Fiends are running scared. I doubt they'll give us any more trouble, not for a long while."
  • "I haven't got any more bounties for you. It's been quiet and calm since you last reported in. Just how I like it."
  • "If you're looking for bounties, you're too late. Had a few Fiends on my shitlist, but they either got killed or moved on."
  • "That right? You killed one of the psychopaths on my shitlist? Let me see the scumbag's head..."
  • "Pack of drugged-out killers. They're addicted to every stim, every pill, every psychoactive enema on this fucked-up earth. I've got three Fiends I want dead, and I don't give a goddamn how it gets done. That sound like something that interests you?"
  • "If you want the full reward, you need to bring me a recognizable head. My superiors need proof they're gone. That means no headshots. No decapitations 'til after they're dead. And no damage to the face. If you want to be safe, aim for the chest. You bring me a head that looks like a rotten tomato, people will be doubting, and I won't be authorized to pay the entire bounty. Good luck to you. And don't get careless."
  • "Yeah, I was there. I was Captain Dhatri, then. That whole situation was a mess and could easily have been avoided with good intel. The major in charge at the time made a bad call - he thought Bitter Springs was full of Great Khan raiders, so we surrounded the place. By the time any of us realized there were civilians down there - women and children - the shooting had already started. The major froze up at the news, and we couldn't get another word out of him. I took over and salvaged the situation as best I could. For my effort, I was promoted to major. Not quite the way I'd have wanted it."
  • "Only one thing concerns me right now, and that's killing the bastards that are murdering my men. You want to talk to somebody in charge, I'd start with Colonel Hsu and work my way down. You'll find him in the Main Concourse. But if you want to take down some psycho-crazy bastards... I'm happy to talk caps.."
  • "If I wasn't in this fight for my country, you couldn't pay me enough to screw with those maniacs. If you change your mind, I'll be happy to see you again. Otherwise... best to stay out of the way."
  • "Adoptive father, yes. I was very proud when he made First Recon. I know that every time I send them out, I could be sending him to his death. But, if it's not me, it'll be somebody else. At least this way I get one more chance to see him."
  • "I was. I thought I'd accepted the fact that I could be the one ordering him to his death, but it's been more difficult than I thought. Excuse me, but I'd rather not speak of this."
