Clyde is a guard, bartender, and mechanic working for the Blue Ridge Caravan Company in Fallout 76, introduced in the Once in a Blue Moon update. He is found at the Middle Mountain Pitstop in Appalachia.


A former associate of Vinny Costa,[1] Clyde is a man of many talents, working at the Pitstop together with his business partner, Vera Thornberg. While he is typically found manning the Boozin Brahmin counter and serving drinks to the clientele,[2] he is also responsible for maintenance, especially the repeller emitters installed by Aries that frequently malfunction.[3] Finally, he takes care of security, which typically means dealing with the various ornery critters that make their way into the compound and menace the brahmin or Vera.[4]

He is a man of zero words, on account of losing his tongue. His co-workers are not clear on what happened to him and rumors abound, ranging from it being cut off by raiders to a bad bowl of radscorpion stew. In reality, the incident is tied to Clyde escaping from a raider gang,[5][6] and as such he is not keen on sharing. While Vera states that Clyde is actually a "big softy" beneath his hardened exterior,[1] he does not seem entirely fond of her, considering her a "chica yammering on about her padre's letter"[7] and as such, refuses to accompany her on any trips to take the photos Vera needs.[8] He also refuses to use a notepad to communicate, despite Vera's insistence, leading to misunderstandings. He never explained his reasons to her, and eventually she just assumed that maybe it's too much to expect literacy from wastelanders.[9]

Like many others, Clyde struggles with his own demons. The very first customer at the Boozin Brahmin he served was one of the only survivors of the super mutant attack on the Foundation Outpost, ragged, stinking, and seeking to drown his memories. It seems he reminded Clyde of his own past as a raider, and his determination to keep going and not let his past life drive him crazy.[5] The gang that Clyde was part of were extreme, even by raider standards, and though he lost a part of himself in the process, he is glad he got out.[6] He has also had an encounter with the Smiling Man, a terrifying cryptid who visited his bar and sat for hours, staring into the flames.[10]

Ultimately, Clyde would like nothing more to be out in Appalachia with the Vault 76 dwellers, but cannot leave his current job due to being indebted to Vinny Costa.[7] He is, however, on one outside assignment: Aries has paid Clyde to investigate the origins of the Blue Devil, and Clyde has produced a report of his findings.[11] Aries wants Clyde to accompany him on a hunting trip to find a mother creature, but it is not known what came of this proposal.[12]

  1. 1.0 1.1 Vault dweller: "Clyde doesn't talk much, does he?"
    Vera Thornberg: "Clyde? Don't take offence to the silent treatment. Is more account on him losin' his tongue. Never got a clear answer about what happened. Rumour is he had a bad run in with raiders. Others reckon he just lost it to a bad Radscorpion stew. Anyways, he runs security at the Pitstop. A big softy really once he gets to know ya. Hear he used to work for Vinny back in the day."
    (Vera Thornberg's dialogue)
  2. Vault 76 dweller: "What kind of stuff goes on around here?"
    Vera Thornberg: "We sell general goods, plus some extras like fresh milk, on account of rasin' the Blue Ridge Caravan Brahmin here. Besides the shop, Clyde sells drinks over at our bar the Boozin Brahmin, and you can always take a load off at the Sleep Stop if ya get tired. Just mind yourself outside, had some critters attack the place recently, hence the repairs goin' on."
    (Vera Thornberg's dialogue)
