Perk wild wastelandThe following is based on the Wild Wasteland trait and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

Crusoe is a dead investigator found in one of the Ultra-Luxe hotel rooms in 2281.


Hired by an unknown third-party to investigate the disappearance of a bride at the Ultra-Luxe, private detective Crusoe had rented a room by the White Glove Society member Mortimer, to stay in while performing the investigation. His contact arranged for him to meet an informant in the steam room around 4 o'clock, who has information regarding the White Gloves' potential return to cannibalism. Unaware that Mortimer has hired an assassin to silence any he suspects knows of, or is plotting against his movement to return his organization back to their old ways, Crusoe failed to report for the meeting. He is found mysteriously dead in his hotel room - the scene of a brutal attack.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • Jay Barnes is used as a template for Crusoe in the G.E.C.K.; everything about the two non-player characters is identical aside from their names and clothing.
  • His name is a reference to David Caruso the actor who portrays Horatio Caine, a crime scene investigator on the TV show CSI: Miami.
