Hey there. In from out of town, ain't you? Name's Dusty.”— Dusty McBride, Fallout: New Vegas
Dusty McBride is a rancher living in Novac in Fallout: New Vegas.
Dusty and Alice, his wife, are the salt of Novac's earth. Honest, hardworking, and married for more than 50 years, they've seen much of what wasteland has to offer. Despite that, their love is as strong as ever as they continue to raise brahmin together in Novac. Dusty's the man in charge of the brahmin, while Alice specializes in processing their meat into edible steaks - Dusty keeps joking it's the thing keeping him at her side - but their business recently ran into trouble. For the past several weeks, someone has been killing their brahmin each night. They don't steal them, don't eat them, they just gun one brahmin down each night. The McBrides are at the end of their wits, especially since they're down to half their herd. Any longer and they'd be denied a livelihood.
