|For other characters named Duke, see Duke.|
A stuck-up raider with delusions of grandeur, he is vying for Krenshaw's position and has the rifle prowess to back up some of his plans. He knows the history of the place and of Ashur, and he does not mind sharing it with the Lone Wanderer, telling them all about this motley crew.
He can be seen either warming his hands at the fire next to where Phantom, Mona, or Squill are practicing their melee strikes, or shooting at the beer bottles at the same place where O-Dog and Vikia practice.
Interactions with the player character
|This character drops a finger when killed (Lawbringer).|
Effects of player's actions
He will congratulate the player character for fighting their way out of The Hole, and he will tell them about how most of the raiders were once slaves and also fought their way out of The Pitt, which contradicts the stated fact that there have only been three slaves that have ever done this, these being Gruber, Reddup and Squill.
If he is killed while the player character is wearing Leather Rebel, then one will hear Duke say, "That Preacher lied..."
- Duke informs the player character that many of The Pitt raiders are actually former slaves who earned their freedom by fighting in the Arena, although most do not like to admit to this fact. The rest are regular raiders from the Capital Wasteland who came to The Pitt in order to join "the biggest gang around."
- Duke refers to the raiders in the Capital Wasteland as "drugged up idiot raiders out in the wild," mentioning how they are an embarrassment and bring shame to the profession.
Behind the scenes
Duke's name is derived from Duquesne University located in the Oakland district of Pittsburgh, The Pitt Uptown equivalent. The football team and mascot are also called the Dukes and the Duke, respectively.
