Dave is the unfortunate holder of the title of world's unluckiest man in Fallout 2.


Born two months premature around 2180,[1] Dave is a grumpy, older man in his early sixties. His weathered face shows decades of abuse caused by bad luck and random events. His misery includes:

Age Event
1 Dropped on the porch
2 Pneumonia
3 Chicken pox
4 Broke six ribs after falling down stairs
5 Uncle decapitated by a watermelon
6 Hit in the head with a shovel by his parents
7 Index finger lost to pet rat
8 Pet dog Spike killed by a tractor
9 Mother loses arm to rabid brahmin
10 Sister killed by a pack of dogs
11 Grandfather committed suicide due to his ugliness
12 Grandmother committed suicide due to his ugliness
13 Father poked out his eyes in drunken stupor
14 Brother lost hand to a wallaby
15 Aunt choked to death on a chicken bone
16 Cousin killed by a badger
17 Amputated left big toe with a hoe
18 Father lost his leg to a tractor
22 Testicular fungus renders him impotent

Dave considers his life in Vault 13 to be the final stage of his misery. The deathclaws found him dying of thirst and exposure in the wastes, suffering from joint pains, headaches, diarrhea and a nasty rash. Dave is convinced that all the feeding, medication, and handling is just preparing him as a meal for Gruthar's deathclaws.

He wasn't eaten, in the end. He was gunned down by Enclave cleanup crews under Frank Horrigan's life, ending a life of misery and pain.

Other interactions

  • Dave can recount his life's story to the player, but he'll stop at the fungus incident, implying there's even more disgrace, as the player character interrupts him before he can continue.
