Rade runs the Circle of Death at Groaning Hollow in The Arid Badlands. Although initially hostile, he warms up considerably as the arena matches progress to their conclusion. He often refers to a crowd, despite the fact that the stands are empty.
Rade's involvement with the arena does not extend past the act of giving missions and providing a place to turn in when these missions are done. He does not have a special introduction (like Dr. Zed, T.K. Baha, Nine Toes, etc.), and his character does nothing more than comment when Vault Hunters pass each round.
- "You lived? Get out of here, the crowd wants to see people die, not live!"
- Chuck Durden claims that Rade is his brother in the Circle Of Slaughter missions.
- Rade claims to be an ex-arena champion.
