Background[edit | edit source]
A dwarf in children's clothes, the red-haired Stuart is usually chewing on a toothpick and studying promising young boxers. He has a knack for spotting fledgling talent and coercing people into fighting for him. While he wishes he was just a little taller to fight in the ring, he is, nonetheless, accepting of his body and does not take too kindly to people relying on stereotypes and making assumptions based solely on their looks (i.e. assuming that a dwarf can't possibly make a career in boxing).
Stuart is one of the more suave and outspoken characters in the whole of New Reno and possesses several interesting lines, including a fourth-wall-breaking dialogue about stereotypes connected to character models.

Quests[edit | edit source]
- Become a Prizefighter: The Chosen One can box under the management of Stuart Little, splitting the winnings. However, they only have two chances, as Stuart has little patience for failures. The choice of a nickname can lead to a few amusing comments, mostly connected to the Rocky movies.

Notes[edit | edit source]
Insulting Stuart about his height will prompt some hilarious fourth-wall-breaking dialogue with him mocking the Chosen One's looks, pointing out the over-muscled chest of males and the relatively large breasts of females. He goes on to conclude that the player is a "stupid min-maxing munchkin" and their character is either a "Madd Maxx wannabe" or a "Laura Kroft impersonator", depending on the player's gender.
- Another similar option that also results in breaking the fourth wall is available at the same step for females with CH 6.
Appearances[edit | edit source]
Stuart Little appears only in Fallout 2.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
- Stuart's name is a reference to E.B. White's Stuart Little children's story. Stuart himself states that his mother read a lot of E.B. White if the Chosen One points this out.
- Comparisons in the special dialogue are just some of the many references to the Mad Max movies and Tomb Raider games in the Fallout franchise.
- His quote is a reference to the episode "Humbug" of The X-Files, in which is similarly statured man says the same thing.
- One of his phrases "Ya eat lightning and crap thunder, kid" is a reference to Rocky II in which Rocky's manager tells Rocky that he is going to eat lightning and crap thunder while he is training.
