I know I look weird, like one of those feral ghoul monsters, but I'm normal. Aside from the new skin condition that is.

Chase "Digger" Terrier is a Secret Service agent in Appalachia.


Chase is one of the Secret Service agents trapped in Vault 79. He is an engineer and tinkerer, as he had attempted to make an automated vacuum cleaner (later made into a scrap heap upon eating Derek Garrison's shoes),[1] and later made a crib and toys for Maggie Stern before she was born.[2] Although he is not her father, he considers everyone as belonging to her.

He survived Shorty's mutiny years prior and was in the vault reactor area when it began to malfunction. Due to the high radiation, he became a ghoul, though the others he was with died (like Grills and Shiny) or turned into feral ghouls (like Bubba and Mac),[3] he alone managed to survive with his sanity intact and eventually stabilized the reactor.[4] However, Chase refuses to finish fixing the reactor because he is afraid he could turn feral if he attempts to.[5]

  2. Chase Terrier's journal
  3. Chase Terrier: "Bubba, Mac, and a bunch of others all became ghouls, but crazy and bloodthirsty. They attacked Grills and Shiny and the ones that didn't turn. Tore them to pieces before they even knew what was happening."
    (Chase Terrier's dialogue)
  4. Vault Dweller: "We're here to help. AC opened the door for us."
    Chase Terrier: "Thank god. I thought I was going to die here. I'm Agent Chase with the Secret Service. Digger to my friends. I was on the reactor team when it malfunctioned. A lot of them ended up looking like me, except their minds are melted too. The ones that didn't change are all dead now. I was able to stabilize the reactor, but it won't come online with the radiation levels this high."
    (Chase Terrier's dialogue)
  5. Vault Dweller: "Why haven't you already vented the reactor chamber?"
    Chase Terrier: "The radiation made all of them into feral ghouls. If I take any more, it might happen to me too."
