Heh, yeah good old Klamath. Not a bad place if you like hunting, eating, and skinning geckos all day! Heh heh.

Klamath Bob is a shopkeeper living in Westside in 2281.


Klamath Bob, as the name implies, hails from Klamath[1] and is the owner of the liquor store in Westside.[2] Although inexperienced with a rifle, he aids the local militia in the defense of the community against Fiend attacks at night.[3] Once, Bob attempted to free first-generation super mutant Mean Sonofabitch from the mistreatment of the expansionist New California Republic,[4] by offering to purchase his slave paperwork.[5] Although the bid was in vain, Tabitha, a former nightkin commander, rescued the tongueless super mutant from jail.[6] Now free, Mean journeyed to Westside in order to track down the man who tried to save him previously. Later, he befriended Bob and joined up as a guard for the Westside Militia alongside him.[7][8]

Back in 2241 a tribal from Arroyo visited Klamath, before Bob was born.[9]
