And the Fiends let this guy touch their food?

— Major Dhatri about Cook-Cook

Cook-Cook is a psychotic fiend living in the South Vegas Ruins in 2281.


Cook-Cook is a flamer-wielding psychopath who has a very close connection to his pet brahmin, Queenie. He is located just north of the Poseidon gas station in some ruined buildings. A minor-leader of the Fiends, Cook-Cook is also known for raping captives, including N.C.R. 1st Recon Sniper Corporal Betsy, who still bears the psychological trauma of his attacks, and Pretty Sarah, who was raped, tortured and burned. Cook-Cook gained his nickname not only because he uses fire based weapons, but he is also an exceptional cook (see also Cook-Cook's Fiend stew). Cook-Cook also dabbles in the slave trade, this is notably exuded by Saint James. Once after buying 3 young girls and a teenage boy, he forced the girls to watch as he set the boy aflame.
