“I'm not getting any younger fella.”
―Norbu, if the player speaks to him after accepting the Comet Bloom quest

Norbu is a character featured in RAGE. He is a resident of Subway Town and is initially found near the Blue Line tunnel entrance, but later on he moves to the "Jani's Supplies" store.

His achy old bones need relief, and as such, he asks the Nicholas Raine to retrieve a Comet Bloom for him in the quest "Comet Bloom".

At the end of the game, after the protagonist accepts the mission "Assault Capital Prime", Norbu can be overheard discussing rumors about something under the Authority control that's supposedly over sixty feet tall, though he thinks it can't possibly be real.
