- Chauncey is the only White Glove Society underling seen without a mask. When asked, he will tell the Courier that he must have forgotten to put it on.
- No matter the precautions you set up before you have a meeting with Chauncey, the assassin still kills him at the end of the dialogue. As soon as Chauncey's meeting ends, the steam room door opens. Quickly closing it causes the initial attack from the assassin to fail, but after a few seconds, the assassin will simply shoot him through the door. The Courier cannot stop the assassination, even by standing directly in front of Chauncey when the round is fired. Even attacking and killing the assassin before this second attempt will simply result in Chauncey dropping dead from a scripted effect. This makes it impossible to save Chauncey.
- It is impossible to advance in Beyond the Beef while avoiding Chauncey's assassination.
- "Yes. The White Glove Society strictly forbids eating humans. But we weren't always the White Glove Society."
- "Those are all members of the White Glove Society. Our founder, Marjorie, gave us all a dress code. There's only one rule to it. In her words, we must dress in such a way that no one can be said to have dressed better than us."
- "I don't know exactly. I wasn't in on it. I think some of them have stopped trusting me. But you can bet they're keeping him near the Gourmand. Our chef, Philippe, has an obsession with fresh ingredients."
