Dave is the 47 year old[1] self-proclaimed President of the Republic of Dave, a small farmstead on the far north-east edge of the Capital Wasteland in 2277.



Dave was born 2230.[2]

After a coup d'etat against his father, in which Dave took The Kingdom of Tom for himself, renamed it, and gave his citizens the "freedom of democracy" instead of dictatorship, the Republic of Dave was born.

Dave re-wrote the Marital laws shortly after seizing control, in order to get himself a second wife (the excuse to his first wife was that "he needed to populate the land of Dave so they could grow and soon own all of the Capital Wasteland").

Daily schedule

Dave's activities consist of staying in his office and very rarely going outside of the main building in the Republic of Dave.

Interactions with the player character

How the Lone Wanderer greets Dave in their first meeting plays a large role in how Dave will interact with the Lone Wanderer. If greeted with the Wasteland Ambassador route, it will give him a false sense that the Republic is being recognized as sovereign, and he will interact fairly well. If you request asylum, you will receive a neutral interaction from him from there on out. If you tell Dave that his Republic is forfeit, Dave and all the other inhabitants of the Republic will become hostile.

When the time comes for an election, you can vote for Dave (after paying the 250 caps immigration fee), or encourage his first wife Rosie or his son Bob to run against him. You can also tamper with the ballot box to make it possible for someone other than Dave to win.

If Dave loses the election, he will leave the Republic forever and retreat to Old Olney, which he will declare the New Republic of Dave. Speaking to him repeatedly afterward will result in him turning hostile. Once Dave leaves the loading area, he can be killed without the other inhabitants of the Republic becoming hostile.

Dave is one of the targets for assassination in the quest You Gotta Shoot 'Em in the Head.

Dave cannot be mezzed.
