Chris was attacked by a Scorched at some point, causing him to run away in fear. While running, Chris suffered an accident in which he broke all of his toes. During the attack, Chris likely contracted the Scorched Plague, given the descriptions of his pain. He arrived in Flatwoods on July 18, 2096, seeking treatment from the Responders for his broken toes and a case of the sniffles. He died the next day. Before his death, Chris turned to Mikey Eddles and said, "Maybe I ate something bad." Mikey buried Chris' body, and left a frustrated comment about how such a task was not supposed to be his job.
Mikey Eddles is mentioned only in Fallout 76.
