Chomps Lewis is a quarry worker foreman paid by the NCR to mine limestone. They ship it by rail to a plant in Boulder City, where it is mixed to make cement, a building material used by the NCR for its projects in the Mojave. Being the foreman of Quarry Junction, he is in charge of the site and is responsible for ensuring productivity among the miners. In recent days it has been hard for Chomps to maintain regular shipments of limestone to Boulder City's mixing yard due to a recent Powder Ganger attack driving away the workers and subsequently allowing a pack of dangerous deathclaws to move into the quarry. They and the Powder Gangers are now holding up production of cement at the city and furthermore, traffic on the Long 15.
He has visited New Vegas, once, and doesn't recommend spending caps gambling on the Strip as it is an easy way for one to lose all their money. He often argues with NCR trooperTyrone over debts owed by the soldier. It has escalated to point where Lewis had to threaten him to pay up in a note. His daughter Melissa is a courier for the Great Khans and although he disapproves of her lifestyle, he understands that only she has authority to make decisions impacting her life. No longer entitled to continue to keep tabs on her daughter's activities, the foreman is glad that she is making her own way in the world.
Playstation 3 Sometimes the player may find that Chomps has vanished from Sloan, despite the time of day or if the player fast travels to the town. If this is not due to a death (either by the player or a deathclaw), the player can find him again by doing the following... Standing in front of the mining office front door, turn so that your compass is between northwest and north. Walk forward (you are going past the pile of tires and to the left side of the Machine shop.) Chomps should be right in front of you/just behind the machine shop walking against a cliff wall. Due to the geography of this area, Chomps blends into the background and his radar icon seems to place him as the worker inside the machine shop meaning many players mistake his icon for the other non-player character.

Playstation 3 Chomps Lewis may leave Sloan and head to Hidden Valley if bark scorpions appear in Sloan. He will remain there in the same spot, even after the player or himself kills the bark scorpions. [verified]
