Biography and appearance
Gametitle-VB.pngThe following is based on Van Buren and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

Slow Joe is one of the "traitor" salvagers living at Denver in 2253.


Joe is big, friendly, and curious.He's also unclean, and not very swift on the uptake. Or at least, that's how he appears on the surface. He's actually a real bastard that killed Dogbody's dogs, and might have raped someone (unproven). He has black hair, a fat face, and overalls. Joe doesn't care about leaving Denver, he's just in it for the loot. He is friends with Ben, for the liquor, and Hardin, for the big loot.[1]

If the player is female and sleeps in the salvager camp, in the middle of the night she is awakened by Slow Joe. He will says something like "I think I want to fuck you," and if they let him, then that's that. If you don't let him, he says, "I'm going to fuck you whether you say you want it or not, bitch!" and initiates combat by slapping the player.

Note: This won't happen if Porter assigns Jimmy T as the player's bodyguard (done via dialogue with Porter, and Jimmy will be present when Slow Joe arrives which will deter Joe).[2]
