Stripe is a creature found in Higgs Village in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Old World Blues.
Stripe is a miniature legendary deathclaw found in Higgs Village inside of Gabe's doghouse. The doghouse is behind House #103.
Stripe is an alpha male deathclaw that somehow was modified to be much smaller than normal. He's about the size of a dog, but much more deadly!
Despite his small size, he is quite powerful. Having slightly less HP than the legendary deathclaw and slightly more than a deathclaw alpha male, he may kill players who are caught off guard. However, Stripe will only pursue the player as far as the fountain before retreating back to the doghouse. He also cannot perform the leap attack that other deathclaws can, and due to his small size he can't outrun the player somewhat limiting his threat.
