Blue is an unusually large crystalisk encountered in the Caustic Caverns.


Blue is mentioned in ECHO recordings as having been found and befriended by Dahl security officer Elyse Booth, who named the crystalisk after its color. When Overseer Harchek ordered that crystals be harvested from the crystalisks, the results proved fatal to the previously docile beasts and those remaining, with Blue among them, retaliated. Harchek's final recording indicates that it was Blue that killed her personally.


When Marcus Kincaid's safe is dropped into the Caustic Caverns and the Vault Hunters pursue it, the safe eventually lands on Blue, who must be defeated to open the safe.
