They moved into the quarry after the Powder Gangers came through and made off with most of our dynamite. We shut the quarry down while we waited for the NCR to get us some more blasting sticks, but now the Deathclaws have shown up. The NCR's a no-show, and my men and I have got nothing to do but sit on our asses all day. It's damn frustrating.

Chomps Lewis, Fallout: New Vegas

Chomps Lewis is the foreman of Quarry Junction workers in Sloan in Fallout: New Vegas.

Background[edit | edit source]

Head foreman of the Quarry Junction teams mining limestone to make concrete the for NCR's fortifications, Lewis found himself on indefinite leave after the Powder Gangers stole his team's entire supply of dynamite, and because of the shortage on dynamite, deathclaws infested the quarry grinding operations to a complete halt. His work seems to have no end of problems, as the morale of workers sagged due to being out of work, out of power, and stuck in a holding pattern. At least Snuffles, the friendly mole rat, keeps the morale up.[2]

When not mining Quarry Junction, Chomps runs a little side business acting as middle man between his daughter, Melissa, and supplier Private Tyrone, trafficking drugs. His contact is shady, but things took a turn for the worse recently, as Tyrone outright screwed Chomps on the last shipment.[3] He is fairly sympathetic to the Great Khans as well.[4]

Despite its proximity, Chomps doesn't recommend visiting New Vegas. Speaking from experience, he states that it's a good way to burn through a month's pay in minutes, and has seen more people on their way thinking it's going to be nothing but an easy ride to the top.[5]

Notable quotes[edit | edit source]

  • "[Where'd the Deathclaws come from?] They moved into the quarry after the Powder Gangers came through and made off with most of our dynamite. We shut the quarry down while we waited for the NCR to get us some more blasting sticks, but now the Deathclaws have shown up. The NCR's a no-show, and my men and I have got nothing to do but sit on our asses all day. It's damn frustrating."
  • "[I killed the Deathclaw Mother and the Deathclaw Alpha Male.] Coming from anyone else, I'd say they were drunk or crazy, but that look in your eyes - I believe you. I can pay you, but it ain't much for what you pulled off. I'll get on the ham radio first thing and tell people all about you, though."
  • "[I killed the Mother Deathclaw.] You... you did? That's pretty amazing - I figured you'd need artillery to take her out. I hate to say it, but as long as the Alpha Male is still alive, that pack isn't going anywhere, even with the Deathclaw Mother out of the picture."
  • "[I killed the Deathclaw Alpha Male.] You... you did? That's pretty amazing - I figured you'd need artillery to take him out. I hate to say it, but as long as the Deathclaw Mother is still alive, that pack isn't going anywhere. She'll take another mate and keep laying eggs."
  • "[I could take care of your Deathclaw problem.] I don't what it is about you, but I think you could actually pull it off. Deathclaws are tough bastards, but you might be even tougher. Nobody here's any use to you in a fight against Deathclaws, but take these medical supplies. You'll probably need them. To do the job right, you've got to get rid of the pack leaders - the Mother Deathclaw and the Deathclaw Alpha Male. Should run the rest of 'em off."
  • "[Goodbye.] If you insist on going north, don't be expecting a rescue when you get into trouble."
  • "Hold up! There are Deathclaws all over the damn place north of here. I'd turn back if I were you. If you want to get to New Vegas, you're better off heading east from Primm and then looping north. It's a heck of a lot safer."
  • "Can't believe anyone actually made it through from the north, what with all the Deathclaws at the quarry. You returning from New Vegas?"

  1. The Courier: "How do you know Melissa?"
    Chomps Lewis: "She's my daughter. Takes a little too much after her mother, rest her soul, but she's happy with the Great Khans, and that's enough for me."
    (Chomps Lewis' dialogue)
  2. The Courier: "I repaired your generator."
    Chomps Lewis: "It's nice to see things going the way they're supposed to, for a change. I'm going to pay you out of my own pocket for this one."
    (Chomps Lewis' dialogue)
  3. The Courier: "I'm looking for a suitcase filled with chemical supplies for a... friend. Know anything?"
    Chomps Lewis: "Ah, yes. I think I know which friend you mean. Even if there weren't Deathclaws in the quarry, there'd still be no delivery. The supplier, a guy in Primm named Tyrone, is a cheating son of a bitch who won't deliver even though he's already been paid in advance."
    The Courier: "Has Tyrone cheated you before?"
    Chomps Lewis: "He's always been shady, but this is the first time he's outright screwed me."
    (Chomps Lewis' dialogue)
  4. The Courier: "You don't care that you're helping the Great Khans?"
    Chomps Lewis: "I'm just the middle man. The Great Khans are a hard group, and some of them are no good, but they're not all the same. I believe in the NCR, but that doesn't make it right for them to roll over anyone who doesn't want any part of 'em."
    (Chomps Lewis' dialogue)
  5. The Courier: "What can you tell me about New Vegas?"
    Chomps Lewis: "I've been there once, and I don't recommend it. It's just a way to burn through a month's pay in five minutes. I've seen a lot of folks come through here thinking they'll have the easy life once they get there. It never happens."
    (Chomps Lewis' dialogue)
