I'm going to move on Vikki... umm... soon. What can I help you with?

Dave Handy is a Hubologist hacker in Fallout 2.


Hailing from former Canada, Dave Handy became eneamored with one of Vikki Goldman's movies and made his way all the way down to San Francisco to profess his love for her and hoping she would reciprocate. His sandy hair and hopeful glint in his eyes indicate he has not yet realized it's all a ruse to keep him a good, docile cult member.[2][3][4] Dave's skills as a hacker and technician are extremely useful to the Hubologists, should they desire to attack the computer systems of their rivals,[1] though Dave usually finds himself acting as tech support for some of the most ridiculous questions on Earth, such as "I should be able to have two guns. Why can't I use two guns?" or "The interface on my terminal is slow and clunky. I think it's your fault". C'est la vie.[5]
