I'm Trent. I'm a guard for the Water Merchants. Our caravan was attacked... by a monster! So huge, so fast. It ate Joe, and took rifle shots and didn't flinch! So huge!

Trent Barrister is a guard for the Water Merchants in 2161.


Trent is a caravan guard. When the Vault Dweller encounters him, he explains his caravan was attacked by a deathclaw that ate his friend Joe.

  • He wears leather armor, despite his sprites appearing to have a jacket.
  • Interestingly, when encountering him, the Pip-Boy 2000 says he's a peasant, while he says he's a guard.
  • When talking to Trent, he claims that a Deathclaw "at Joe in three gulps!" This is an obvious typo of the word 'ate'.
