- "Out here, your main enemy is boredom. Boredom and a C.O. who really likes putting dog shit in pillowcases."
- —Vargas to Casio 06 in Prologue
Role in Plot Edit
Vargas informs his C.O. McCready that something had tripped the motion sensor in the lower level of the base. McCready, irritated at the news, orders Vargas to show a new recruit around the base while he heads off to check. Vargas and the recruit chat for a few minutes before an explosion goes off in the facility, killing the entire staff. Still alive, Vargas sees the group of terrorists and charges at the leader with a knife. However, he is quickly shot and killed by one of the other terrorists.
Vargas does not appear to be very intelligent, switching up the idiom "all bark and no bite" and apparently not knowing what a botanist or books on tape are. Nonetheless, he appears to be more reasonable than his C.O., and actively works to bond with the new recruit before they are both killed in the attack.
