Red Baychowski is a character in Wasteland 2.
He'll be encountered again at Damonta, where he will ask you to rescue him from robots that have him trapped. If you do, he'll tell you about hearing rumours of a treasure in one of the airliners located in the plane graveyard.
Red will ask you to accompany you and will promise to hand over a share of the treasure, running off on his own to find it if you refuse. You can still learn about the treasure in case he is killed instead of being rescued.
