Normally a man of his size would be a shoe-in for the Warriors, but “Big Ben” was born and raised in Vault 57 as a son of the Ordnance Company. He’s known little else beyond explosives, weapons repair, ammunition maintenance and storage.
Ben is a quiet half-deaf Sergeant Major, the prototypical strong silent type with few friends but no enemies. Which is not surprising considering this man is one of the biggest pure strains in the clan at just over 2 meters tall (6’7"). It’s said Big Ben wrestled ‘Gorilla Jim’, a huge mutated gorilla-man from Warrior Company, and walked away with all his extremeties still ‘in situ’. He’s not all that smart, but his huge constitution serves him well in the realm of things that go boom: he can take a lickin and keep on tickin. Unfortunately he’s now somewhat deaf, but that goes with the territory. Ben is a regular fixture of the elite hovercraft crew these days, serving as the explosives expert.
