Dusty Hogg is a world-class biker and ex-professional wrestler. He also used to work in construction and illegal odd jobs to earn a living, which has gotten him into numerous encounters with the law.
Dusty is a mean-spirited and unsympathetic person who is easy to anger. He looks down on those who are weak and timid, thinking them incompetent. However, he respects those who are strong and fearless, and those are whom he opens up his friendly and generous side to.
Dusty, being your stereotypical biker, is into fast living and fast life, and as such is into activities that are potentially dangerous or controversial, such as gator wrestling.
In The Sims 2 for handheld however, his aggressive side has practically vanished and is a chill and relaxed person. This is possibly because he has his mother living with him in his trailer now, and as such is being nicer towards others.
Life leading up to The Sims Bustin' Out Edit
In Mission 2, Dusty and his biker friends are passing by SimValley when Dusty's bike suddenly breaks down and crashes, and he and his friends hole up at the local watering hole, the Burning Spoke. The player is first tasked by Uncle Hayseed to get rid of the bikers as they have left their bikes blocking the road out of town. After calming Dusty down, the player fixes his bike and returns him his helmet. The player also runs a few more errands for Dusty such as tending the bar at the Burning Spoke and repainting his bike. To show his appreciation, Dusty has his friends clear the road of their bikes and he also gives the player his training scooter.
Even though his bike is repaired, Dusty decides to stick around SimValley for longer and is most commonly found hanging out in the Burning Spoke. He may also occasionally be found doing time in the jail.
Life leading up to The Urbz: Sims in the City (handheld) Edit
After moving to Miniopolis, he meets his old construction friend Ewan Watahmee, and they open a garage in Urbania. Most of the time Dusty can be found inside the Chopper Garage or loitering outside. He will also occasionally be found at the Slice O' Life pizza bar, hospital, or behind bars at the jail.
In Mission 2, Dusty and Ewan are trying to open a motorcycle racing track in Urbania and Dusty tasks the player with raising §500. After this, the player is free to race bikes to earn Simoleons.
In Mission 3, the player is trying to rebuild the Xizzle Factory and Ewan tells the player that Dusty is a genius with engines. Dusty agrees to help rebuild the factory on the condition that the player beats Dusty in a race. When the player does beat Dusty, he is impressed by the player's ability and gives the player his custom-made chopper.
In Mission 5, Dusty makes a minor appearance in the Atlantis Premiere Party.
