Well, they call me Tommy Ten-Toes on accounts of my ten toes... on the one foot.

Tommy Ten-Toes is a caravan guard for the Blue Ridge Caravan Company.[1] He accompanies Minerva on her travels through Appalachia.


Tommy takes orders from Vinny Costa,[2] and makes it clear that he works for the Blue Ridge Caravan Company, not Minerva. He is skilled when it comes to drawing animals, especially kangaroos and rhinos. He loves the latter ones and misses the days of zoos.[3]

Tommy earned his current nickname on account of having ten (of his fifteen overall) toes on one foot. He used to be known as Tommy the Nose because he "nose" (knows) a lot about business and guns, but when he became a ghoul, people stopped calling him by this nickname.[4] Due to a vague incident in Chattanooga involving a dog, Tommy is no longer allowed to take off his shoes in front of customers.[5]

  1. Vault Dweller: "How's life as a caravan guard?"
    Tommy Ten-Toes: "Oh you know. None too bad, none too good. A lot of walkin'. A bit of shootin'. Mostly just standin' around, trying ta look all intimadatin' like."
    (Tommy Ten-Toes' dialogue)
  2. Tommy Ten-Toes: "Workin' for Blue Ridge is a lot easier than running jobs for... Wait a minute, Vinny said no talkin' bout that. Ho ho, thought you'd pull a fast one on Tommy Ten-Toes, eh? Nice try, pally."
    (Tommy Ten-Toes' dialogue)
  3. Vault Dweller: "What's it like working for Minerva?"
    Tommy Ten-Toes: "To be clear: Tommy don' work for Minerva. Tommy works for the Blue Ridge Caravan Company. But... seeing as I only ever gets paired wit Minerva, I guess it don' make much difference. Anyways, she's all right. You know that she draws them pictures of guns and stuff herself right? And people are actually buyin' em? Maybe I should sell some drawins too. I draw animals real good. Like dem kangaroos. Oh, and rhinoceroses. I love rhinoceroses... Ya ever been ta the zoo? I miss zoos."

  4. Vault Dweller: "How did you get your name?"
    Tommy Ten-Toes: "Well, they call me Tommy Ten-Toes on accounts of my ten toes... on the one foot. They used to call me Tommy the Nose. Pretty sure it's 'cause I nose a lot. I nose about business, I nose about guns. I nose it all. But, uh, after getting all Ghouly In-game spelling they stopped calling me the nose... Maybe they don't think I nose it like I used to. But, I got these toes, though. More than I can count! Oh wait, fifteen. Fifteen toes. See? Tommy still nose."
