Yeah? Well... so's your face!

— Bob when told he shouldn't be in charge of anything.

Bob is Dave's eldest son and second in command of the Republic of Dave in Fallout 3.


Bob was born in 2258. Bob is young, hotheaded and bossy, and has been given the title of "Second-Commander of the Army of Dave". He is nineteen years old, considers himself to be the Vice President of the Republic, insisting that he knows best and that all citizens of the republic should listen to him. [1]

Although Dave will not talk badly to Bob in public, it's widely known that he really lets Bob have it when the two are alone. Bob can't stand his father, and is looking forward to establishing the Empire of Bob.[1]

Daily schedule

Bob can be found at the Republic of Dave grounds during the day. At night Bob sleeps in the Men's quarters.

Bob will wander between the Republic of Dave buildings, approaching their outer walls and 'repairing' them with a wrench in his hand. This results in no actual change.

  • Election Day: You can convince Bob to run for the presidential election.

Effects of player actions

Bob can become president of the Republic of Dave if the Lone Wanderer manipulates the election. The Republic of Dave then becomes the Empire of Bob, run with an iron fist. Bob cuts off contact with the wasteland, halts negotiations with other countries and stockpiles weapons for later use.

Behind the scenes

There is a plot hole in Bob's character. Bob is Asian, while his father and biological mother are Caucasian.

    Bob, "Second—Commander of the Army of Dave," is young, hotheaded, and bossy. Although he's only 19, Bob thinks of himself as Vice Dave, insisting that he knows best and that all citizens of the republic should listen to him. Although Dave will not admonish Bob in public, it's widely known that Dave lets Bob have it behind closed doors. Bob resents his father and look forward to the day he can establish the Empire of Bob."
