Chuck Stodgers is a man, lost in time, found in the Broken Hills mine in Fallout 2.


A dusty, sleepy-looking man in old fashioned clothing[2], Chuck Stodgers was one of the greatest airplane pilots in the world, until his plane crashed near what would become Broken Hills in the 22nd century. The same fumes that overpowered him also preserved him remarkably well.[3] When he awakes he asks the Chosen One where he is. When he is told the reply, "in Broken Hills, near the New California Republic" he flees in panic.[4]
