He spits forth a horrific belch that defies the very heavens in its volume and depth.In-game description

Badger is one of the tanker vagrants on the PMV Valdez in San Francisco in 2241.


Well liked by fellow crew members, Badger is described as punk with a half smile, referring to himself as an "information retrieval specialist."[1][2] In conversation, he may bring up his former band and bandmates from the musical group There We Smolder.[3] He states that the band was good, despite the singer being a ponce, Aaron's constant sweating, and everything else being Todd's fault.[3]

His girlfriend's name is Suze, who is trapped below decks, requiring the Chosen One to rescue her in exchange for Badger's help with acquiring tanker fuel.[4] The other tanker vagrants will comment on the rescue, mentioning that maybe Badger will sleep with them as a thanks for saving her.[5] If Badger dies, the vagrants will express their remorse and Suze will be more distraught, sharing that Badger was all she had in terms of friends or family.[6][7]
