Poor Earl. Gone just like that. Such a good bartender. Good friend. Oh, but terrible with women, mind you. Bull in china shop with them.Vadim Bobrov

Earl Sterling is a deceased bartender who worked for Vadim Bobrov at the Dugout Inn in Diamond City in 2287.


Earl Sterling was a resident of Diamond City who worked as a bartender at the Dugout Inn, and was personal friends with Vadim Bobrov. He was not very satisfied with his appearance and had trouble interacting with women. For those reasons, Earl sought plastic surgery from Doc Crocker. That was when he disappeared and Vadim, worried for his friend, filed a missing persons report. After reporting to the mega surgery center for his appointment, Sterling was murdered and mutilated by the doctor, who was driven mad by his obsession with faces upon seeing his patient. Crocker subsequently hid Earl's grisly remains in the surgery cellar.
