Chance was a member of the Great Khans and a survivor of the Bitter Springs Massacre of 2278. He was a chem user and mute, psychologically scarred by the New California Republic massacre of his tribe. His long blonde hair gave him a wild look and with his muscular build, had a berserker style melee fighting style.
Benny hired Chance, along with some other Great Khans, to intercept the Courier carrying the Platinum Chip. While en route, Chance almost single-handedly took out a large force of drugged up Fiends rampaging near Goodsprings at the tribal village. Fueled by a flashback of the Bitter Springs Massacre and withdrawals from his chems, he blindly charged into battle. Benny was less than pleased, but the Great Khans demonstrated significant loyalty in backing up Chance's drug fueled counter rampage. During one portion of the fight Chance exhibited great physical strength and damage threshold by bending a flamer nozzle (currently blasting him with fire) back onto its user.
Following the events of the battle, as Chance laid on the ground severely wounded, Benny asked him if he wanted to end his life to be with the ones who died at Bitter Springs. Benny left him the vial of psycho he got from Swank, which was used before to kill a Singer who, like Chance, couldn't let go of his past. Chance decided to take it, in an effort to return to the times before Bitter Springs, and died as a result. When the Khans began to bury him, Benny suggested they should leave him to rot, an opinion quickly changed when the Great Khans intimidated him. Benny, defeated in the argument, said he was going on ahead and left them to bury their friend.
