Vic has a daughter who lives and works in Vault City, who is the fruit of love between him and a Vault City citizen. He never loved her much, often calling her the Desert Viper. It seems his child has inherited her mother's genes.
Find Vic the Trader: The Chosen One may either buy or bust him out. Once freed, he tells them what he knows and then offers to join. Low-intelligence characters are given a dialogue choice to recruit Vic but without results from the choice. If Metzger and his slavers are killed without freeing Vic, he will somehow escape the locked room and take refuge at Mom's Diner.
If Vic has a higher Repair skill than the player character (which he likely will, with that final 130%), he will run up to and repair about anything that the Repair skill can be used on.
If accompanied by Sulik, Vic will constantly say that Sulik is looking at him funny.
Once Vic is in company, he will often refer to the Chosen One as "Boss". Much to the disdain of his daughter.
If his daughter is attacked, Vic will turn hostile. .
If Vic has called the Chosen One "boss" many times, a new dialogue option appears that will make him start calling the Chosen One "chief" instead..
Despite having a great Energy Weapons skill (higher than his Small Guns skill), Vic refuses to use any energy weapon rifles (such as the laser rifle or the plasma rifle), only pistols (such as the laser pistol or the plasma pistol). This rifle-phobia strangely does not apply to rifles under the Small Guns category, and he will happily use sniper rifles or Gauss rifles with no issue.
