Captain Ethil Mercaptain is a character in Wasteland 2.


Mercaptain is an expert in weapons, armor and pre-war technology. She has the job of designing new weapons and armor for the Desert Rangers in addition to refurbishing them. She believes Vargas is doing a good job and agrees with his cautious approach.


You can give the Metal Leg to her or General Vargas, who will hand it over to her, in order for the Rangers to learn more about the type of synth that murdered Ace.

If you tell her about Ranger Robert Bowling trying to sell guns at a cheap price, she'll have him arrested by two Ranger Gunners. She will also give you any one equipment for just $1 if you have a requisition order.


Her name is a reference to ethyl mercaptan, another name for Ethanethiol.
