According to the Wellspring residents, he is the founder of Wellspring. After the Authority occupies the town, the Mayor's Office is empty and he is not seen or mentioned ever again.
- In the novel he is hinted as being incredibly corrupt, although this is not featured in the game. In fact, the residents of Wellspring have nothing bad to say about him, he pays promptly for good work, gives Nicholas a free apartment, holds town hall meetings to collect citizen input on decisions, protects Nicholas from the Authority, forges ties to both Kvasir and the local settlements with no expectation of payment, and encourages local businesses.
- On the Bethesda website, it is said that Clayton is now the "Mayor of being dead", but his "corrupt-as-hell son" Klegg Clayton will be making an appearance in RAGE 2.
