Biography and appearance
Mentioned inFallout: New Vegas

A tribe came into Tuscon one day - more a gang, really. Dirty Dave and his six brothers. They were looking for bullets, and I sold some to them.

Raul Tejada

Dirty Dave was a leader of a tribal raiding gang near Two Sun.


Raul Tejada sold him and his gang ammunition, hoping Dave and his gang would leave now that they had what they wanted, instead they decided they wanted to rob the local brothel. They attacked it, killing most of its workers and taking Claudia, a local prostitute, as a prisoner. Raul gave chase, and after a three day pursuit across the Arizona wasteland, Raul found them, but by then the gang had killed Claudia; he found her dead with a bullet in each eye. Enraged by the discovery, Raul decided to murder Dave and his gang as revenge, but youth was not on his side anymore; though Raul managed to kill the entire gang, the severity of the gunfight against left him severely injured and immobile for several days.[1]


Dave is mentioned only in Fallout: New Vegas.


  1. The Courier: "What happened with her?"
    Raul Tejada: "This was a long time ago. Before Caesar's Legion pacified Arizona and brought the raider tribes to heel. A tribe came into Tuscon one day - more a gang, really. Dirty Dave and his six brothers. They were looking for bullets, and I sold some to them. I figured if I did that, they'd leave town before they tore it up too much."
    The Courier: "But they didn't, did they?"br/>Raul Tejada: "No, boss. No they didn't. As I was saying, I hoped they'd leave the town in peace. Instead, they decided to stop at Claudia's brothel to take the edge off. I don't know which one of them got rowdy first, but by the time I heard the screams and got my guns, it was too late. They'd shot up the brothel, killed four girls, and taken Claudia for their sport."
    The Courier: "Did you rescue her?"
    Raul Tejada: "I went after Dave and his brothers. They had a head start, but they slept nights. I didn't. Took me three days to catch up to them. Claudia was dead when I got there. They'd put a bullet in each of her eyes. I couldn't do anything except avenge her, just like Rafaela. I charged into the middle of their camp and started firing - two of them were dead before they knew I was there. The other five, though.... They shot the shit out of me. I would have died, I think, if I wasn't so full of rage."
