Look, maybe you ain't HEARD, tribal, but this's Salvatore's place. MY job is to make sure the boss ain't bothered by yapping dogs like you. Now run back to yer tribe and cook up one of yer people for dinner.

Mason is Louis Salvatore's right hand man in Fallout 2.

Background[edit | edit source]

A powerfully built man of middle age and a receding hairline,[1] Mason takes his job seriously. He is mostly concerned with ensuring that his employer is not bothered by New Reno trash and other riff-raff.[2] His other duty is enforcing the wishes of his employer and carrying out the most sensitive assignments personally.

Mason comes across as brutish and volatile, his profanity-laden manner of speaking certainly adding to this impression. However, Mason has a softer side, as Louis Salvatore is more than just an employer to him. He is like a father to him and Mason loves him very much, though Mr Salvatore doesn't seem to be aware of his subordinate's feelings.[3]
