Not much is known about No-bark Noonan's past.

The event undoubtedly made him into the man he is. He also claims to be a scientist, which he may have been in the past before being stung by radscorpions, since his advanced vocabulary might suggest higher education.

Them quack doctors can say what they want about all the radscorpion stings that done pierced my skull. I know what I seen.

No-bark Noonan is a crazy conspiracy theorist living in Novac in 2281.

BackgroundEdit

Not much is known about No-bark Noonan's past. However, when asked about his nickname, he reveals that he suffered from multiple radscorpion stings that have pierced his skull. The event undoubtedly made him into the man he is. He also claims to be a scientist, which he may have been in the past before being stung by radscorpions, since his advanced vocabulary might suggest higher education. He wanders the streets of Novac, looking into windows and spouting conspiracy theories and other ramblings that sometimes have nuggets of truth hidden in them. It's not exactly certain how he earned his nickname, although Alice McBride, a Novac resident, believes that his name comes from the phrase "not all of his dogs are barking." No-bark says otherwise; he claims that "they know I ain't just barking here. What I say's got bite, 'cause it's the truth."
