Well, mister, you sure don’t look chewed up by those rats yet -- but you will if you keep pestering them. Just don’t bring any back here with you.”
A tall, lanky trapper, Slim Picket is a veteran wasteland hunter. He knows a great deal about the critters inhabiting the wasteland and doesn't mind sharing his knowledge, for a price. He and the other trappers settled into the ruined mall on the west end of the town, picking off rats and other critters for food and trade. However, the appearance of Keeng Ra'at in the excavated tunnels beneath the mall has caused a surge in both rat populations and their aggression. Slim had the trappers wall off all access points to the northern part of the mall in an effort to stem the tide.
