It's the Hispanic Heritage Month at FANDOM! It's worth noting that Wasteland, 33 years ago, was one of the first games to allow players to create Hispanic characters with the nationality selection. What's more, the starting Hispanic character, Snake Vargas, eventually became one of the most important movers and shakers of the Arizona wasteland, saving the world twice over as a Desert Ranger!

Jan is the leader of a clandestine research community still living in the ruins of Darwin.


After the Rangers cleansed Finster's operation with fire and brimstone, Jan was one of the few who survived the attack. Rather than abandon all hope and leave the laboratories in ruin, she and her followers gathered what they can and set to salvaging information and running their own research programs, to save what good Finster has created. Though mutated, they formed a secret, tight knit community that has been storing and cataloguing Darwin's accomplishments for a time when humanity would be responsible enough to benefit from them.

Trouble came in 2102, when a metal monk came to Darwin and attacked the labs, unleashing a virulent plague. Though it was destroyed by the mutants, they succumbed to the plague, becoming violent, mindless beasts. Jan was the only survivor who managed to make it to safety and avoid becoming a feral beast.

This character starts quests.

cure the diseased mutants


  • Cure the diseased mutants: Jan is found inside a clean room in the secret lab at Darwin. She asks the player to cure the diseased mutants.
    • It is possible to force open the door to her room before curing the disease. This Will make her hostile and fail the quest. (If your team has Rose, she too will turn hostile)
    • If you do not agree to keep the mutant town in Darwin a secret, Jan will become hostile and attack.
    • If your party kills any non hostile mutants (or if you kill a very large amount of hostile mutants) Jan will become hostile and attack.
