Carlyle St. Clair III is a wastelander who was the original candidate for the dish the White Glove Society would dine on for Mortimer's banquet. Before he could get captured by the White Gloves, Carlyle escaped and headed to a shack which became his house. He is very suspicious about outsiders coming to his doorstep and has never left his house since he escaped from the Ultra-Luxe.
Carlyle St. Clair's house is very well camouflaged against the mountain, and can be difficult to find. The shack is the same color as the mountain range and is nearly flush up against the mountain. If there is any trouble finding it, follow close to the edge of the east side of the mountain range, beginning just north of North Vegas Square. Fast travel to Freeside's north gate and head northeast until spotting a set of power lines at the base of the mountain range. Follow these power lines to reach St. Clair's house.
"That obvious, huh? Yeah I'm not from around here. But where I'm from, they don't want me, so that's just as well. Really with my reputation, there aren't many places I can go that'll have me. My own family's blackballed me, and they've got a lot of clout."
pcps3xbox360 Upon arriving at the shack, he may not be present. On PC, enter the following into the console: prid 127dd7, disable, enable. However, his dialogue tree may not be available.[verified]
Knock out Carlyle, drag his body to the dumpster, and see if the dumpster will allow the player character to put his body in. If this does not work, enter resetquest 0010d2c6 into the console just after the lines above and then try to knock him out again after starting the quest over. This means that one will have to go back to Mortimer and start the events over, and the characters that may have died previously will still be dead.
