Patrons are customers at the Wayward in Appalachia.


Patrons start to appear at the bar once it has officially opened, following the completion of The Elusive Crane. Three patrons can be found in the game: two men and one woman, who sit and wander around the bar. The man at the counter is a musician from Nashville who occasionally plays the acoustic guitar on the bar stage. The woman is a refugee from D.C. who is doing odd jobs for Duchess in exchange for food and clothing. The man sitting under the stairs is a former soldier-turned-slaver who is scoping out the bar for potential victims.

Interactions with the player character

Interactions overview

This character has no special interactions.

Other interactions

  • The Vault Dwellers of Vault 76 may interact with them to hear their backstories. The slaver will refer to individual Dwellers as "vaulter" while hinting at his profession. The musician will respond negatively if he is interrupted while playing or about to play the guitar.
  • Unlike most NPCs in the game in instanced interiors who are marked as essential, the patrons are not. It is possible to start a fight and kill them. Duchess will tell them to "knock it off" and call them clowns and nimrods, urging them to take it outside, although she does not say anything if the patrons are killed. The player can proceed to loot their bodies. Each patron that is killed will permanently never respawn.
