Ferndown (next to the table)
I'm sorry to lose Ben Wade. He was a good man and a hard one to replace. My name's Ferndown, and I'll take care of what we owe you.”— Ferndown
A frail and edgy-looking fellow in a dirty vault suit, Ferndown is hired by Vault City as a replacement for Ben Wade, should the latter be killed on the trail between Vault City and Redding, a part of the Golden Trail.
Interactions with the player character

- Golden Trail: If Ben Wade is killed on the trail, Ferndown will take Wade's place and pay the Chosen One's salary. Afterwards, the caravan route is dead as he himself is unwilling to take on the route and he stresses it will be a long time before anyone else takes it up.
