Well, there I was sitting in the desert, waiting for the world to swallow my miserable existence, when a pack of deathclaws shows up. Well, I'm thinking to myself, this is it. Now I can die. I can wind up as a pile of deathclaw shit in the middle of the desert. But no... fate had yet another cruel card to play against me.

Dave is a sad resident of Vault 13 in 2241.


Dave is a sad, older man.[1] Born two months premature around 2180, Dave's life is an endless path of misery and misfortune. He became a grumpy man, with a weathered face and the stance of one who has had his fair share of abuse. Bad luck in his life included:

Age Event
1 Dropped on the porch
2 Pneumonia
3 Chicken pox
4 Broke six ribs after falling down stairs
5 Uncle decapitated by a watermelon
6 Hit in the head with a shovel by his parents
7 Index finger lost to pet rat
8 Pet dog killed by a tractor
9 Mother loses arm to rabid brahmin
10 Sister killed by a pack of dogs
11 Grandfather committed suicide due to his ugliness
12 Grandmother committed suicide due to his ugliness
13 Father poked out his eyes in drunken stupor
14 Brother lost hand to a wallaby
15 Aunt choked to death on a chicken bone
16 Cousin killed by a badger
17 Amputated left big toe with a hoe
18 Father lost his leg to a tractor
22 Testicular fungus renders him impotent

He was brought to Vault 13 by deathclaws, who found him dying of thirst in the wastes, after his brahmin died and he began to suffer from joint pains, headaches, diarrhea, and a nasty rash. However, his life experiences make him expect the worst and despite being fed, sheltered and medicated, he continues to think he is about to be devoured by the deathclaws.
