Jared came to Fortune City to party and have a good time with some girls. Unfortunately, he was caught up in the outbreak and was bitten by a zombie. Fearing for his life, he fled to the Wily Travels travel agency in the Royal Flush Plaza, creating a barricade in an attempt to keep the zombies at bay. Once found by Chuck, he will beg for Zombrex, afraid to go anywhere else. Once he is given medicine, he will allow Chuck to offer him a shoulder to carry him in order to take him to the Safe House, in hopes of finding some girls at the bunker.

Frank, you'd better get to Pub O' Gold in the Silver Strip. There's a guy hiding out in there. Looks like he's bleeding.
Hey, buddy. You okay?
No, no dude... not so much. I just came here to party and look what happened.
You're bleeding pretty bad there. One of those things get you?
Yeah, I'm bit, man, like a tasty morsel. I'm hosed if I don't get Zombrex soon. Game over, dude ... game over...
Hey, dude. Have you found any Zombrex yet?
Right on, man. I totally owe you. I feel a little dizzy though, can you help me out?
We better get back to the Safe House. It's safe there.
There some girls at this Safe House? Is it, like, a party place?
