Spineless Stu is one of the Denver salvagers. He wears a back/neck brace, apparently because of a fall. Seems to be either worried, or constantly in pain. Drives a bus around town. He overcompensates for his injury out of fear that he might be let go, so he's always on time and helpful. Has seen Hardin interact with D.C. Lowery, making "drops". Afraid to leave Denver because he's not fit for travel. He is afraid his claim may be taken away from him. He can't walk and stays in the bus most of the time. Has lowered physical stats. Used to work as a trucker, so has some skill in piloting a vehicle. He may have been pushed off a building.
Stan earned the title of "spineless" after selling out Porter and his gang to the NCR during "the 370 Raid" of 2248, a raid he was supposed to be taking part in but was too afraid of risking his life.
