Infatuated with Vikia the sniper, O-Dog is more than competent with precision-rifle weaponry. He competes with Duke to get Vikia's attention, almost always unsuccessfully. He deems newcomers not as meat but simply as a "higher grade of sausage."[Non-canon 1][clarification needed]
Interactions with the player character
|This character drops a finger upon death (Lawbringer).|
Due to the fact that he possesses strange meat and refers to the player and other humans as "meat" and "sausage", it is implied that he is a cannibal.
- "You just got moved up to a higher grade of sausage, is all."
- "Hey, it's not pretty, but it's the truth. We're all just meat in the grinder out here. Today's hotshot is tomorrow's Trog-chow. Nothing to it but to be the best, and eat our fill before we're next on the plate. Work hard and you might just be a grade-A cut like me!"
- "Not hardly. Deep down, we're all meat, and even the best of us is just gonna be Trog-chow someday. No shame in it -- just the way life goes. It's all meat, baby."
Behind the scenes
His name and proclivity for referring to people as meat products is a reference to Pittsburgh's landmark restaurant in Oakland (Uptown in game, where O-Dog is located), Essie's Original Hot Dog Shop (shortened simply to "The O" by locals). Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Essie's Original Hot Dog shop closed in April of 2020. Hot dogs that were served from "The O" were referred to simply as O-Dogs.
