Gametitle-VBThe following is based on Van Buren and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

Bares His Teeth is the pack leader of the Hangdog tribe living on the North Hillside[1] in 2253.


He's an arrogant leader full of self-importance. Think of him as the scrawny little bully who hides behind the muscles of his big bully friend. He thinks himself a right-hand man of Caesar, and therefore very important in the wasteland.[2]

Effects of player's actionsEdit

If the Prisoner succeeds in taming the wild dog, he will be given a Hangdog warrior name. If the Prisoner managed to succeed in the more difficult task of stealing a puppy from a feral packs lair, it will be turned over to Teacher, and an adult dog will be given to the Prisoner in exchange.[3]


Before the Hangdogs were merged with the Blackfoot tribe, Bares would have had no qualms about banishing Sharptooth and his family for Sharptooth being a Legion spy. Bares would have also joined the Hangdog rebellion if the Prisoner had become leader of the tribe and showed mercy to Sharptooth.[8]


Bares His Teeth was to appear only in Van Buren, the canceled Fallout 3 by Black Isle Studios.
