Nothing is known about Alvin's life prior to or as the outbreak began, except that he was happily married to Rebecca, who he loves dearly. Alvin also mentions that he and Rebecca went skiing once, and Rebecca states that it wasn't pretty.
Alvin and his wife were members of Howe's Hardware, a community run by William Carver. Unbeknownst to Alvin, Rebecca had an affair with Carver that he would not learn about until the events of "A House Divided". Some time later Rebecca became pregnant, though Alvin remained in the dark that the baby may not have been his. When Luke and Carver disagreed about how to run the community, Alvin and Rebecca followed a group lead by Luke in leaving Howe's Hardware. Upon doing so, he was forced to kill his own friend, another community member named George. The group succeeded in escaping the community, though they were forced to leave Reggie behind who fell when trying to escape. Eventually, the group took shelter in a cabin in the woods nearby.
When Pete brings Clementine to the group, Alvin acts as a voice of reason by calming Rebecca and Nick down. He becomes sympathetic towards Clementine when she shows the group her bite wound and starts to suggest that they could spare some supplies before Rebecca silences him. He can still be convinced to defend her if she chooses to appeal to him. Later, when Clementine looks for supplies to help her stitch her arm up, she can approach Alvin's window and ask for his help or enter the cabin without asking for his help. If Clementine asks Alvin for help, he tries to refuse to help her, saying he will get in trouble. Although, Clementine can convince him to help her anyway. If so, he brings her some bandages and a juice box before attending the house meeting about Clementine. Later, when Clementine patches herself up at the shed. He will be seen shocked looking at how she survived a walker all by herself and fixed up her arm. When Clementine heads to the fish traps, He is then not seen for the rest of the episode.
Alvin appears in this episode. He, along with Luke, went looking for Clementine, Pete and Nick after they went missing at the fish traps. When Clementine returns to the cabin, it is shown that this has left Rebecca very distraught and she says he should have never gone looking for them. He and Luke return with Nick (Determinant). After Clementine and Sarah's encounter with Carver. He is seen discussing the sudden reappearance of Carver with the other group members in the cabin. Agreeing with them to move away. Later, he travels with the rest of the group to a distant mountain range, all the while being concerned about Rebecca's pregnancy and hunger. When they are confronted by a group of apparent bandits at an abandoned ski lodge, Alvin tries to convince the aggressors to put their guns down. However, one of the group members turns out to be an old friend of Clementine. Bringing the two groups together. Alvin stays at the lodge and comforts Rebecca, when she feels a slight pain in her stomach Alvin quickly jumps to her aid, but she tells him it's fine and she's just thirsty. Alvin goes to grab some water and Rebecca uses the opportunity to reveal that thebaby is not Alvin's, saying that he'll "kill her" if he found out and asks Clementine for advice. Alvin then returns and Clementine heads downstairs to go deal with other issues.
During the walker attack on the lodge. Alvin remains inside to protect Rebecca. But later when Carver and his group attack, he, Rebecca and Clementine hide while everyone else gets rounded up and forced onto their knees. Alvin and Clementine work together to sneak towards Rebecca. Alvin then notably discovers Rebecca's affair with Carver after the latter calls out to Rebecca, suggesting that the baby belongs to him. Alvin looks upset and disappointed but nonetheless stays by his wife's side, and later affirms that he still considers Rebecca's baby his. He and Rebecca get in an argument of whether or not to surrender to Carver. Eventually he convinces her to surrender, but gives Clementine the option to find Luke and Kenny who have since gone missing. If she choose to find the others Alvin will help her escape before revealing himself to Carver. After Kenny shoots Johnny, Kenny can be convinced to take another shot or stand down. Alvin can be executed by Carver after Kenny takes the shot and fails to hit Carver in the head or Clementine is not held at gunpoint instead of Alvin. But his life can be spared if Clementine and Kenny surrender to him. If Clementine surrenders with Rebecca, Alvin will be grabbed by Carver she is later given the chance to yell at Luke and Kenny to stop or run into Carver as he holds Alvin hostage, knocking him free and causing Carver to miss his shot. Which both cause Carver to hold Clementine at gunpoint, to which Kenny surrenders. If he is spared, he, along with the others, are marched out of the ski lodge and into the snow by Carver and his group at gunpoint.
If Alvin survived the events of "A House Divided", he will appear alongside the other members of Clementine's group captured in Carver's group's truck, being escorted to their compound. After the truck arrives at the compound, Alvin and the other members of the group are loaded off the truck. Alvin is soon told he needs to go to Carver's office for a moment, Rebecca tries to stop him, but Alvin tells her not to worry, saying if Carver wanted to kill him, he would have done it already.
After Alvin arrives at Carver's office, the latter beats him to an unconscious and bloody state. Clementine later sees this when Carver invites her to his office for a talk and she asks why Carver would hurt Alvin so badly. Carver simply responds by saying that the two have history and it can be inferred that part of Alvin's beating was because of his murder of George, a former member of Carver's community.
A day after his sadistic beating at the hands of Carver, Clementine sneaks into Carver's office, hoping to use the controls of the compound's PA system located inside to draw a nearby herd to the compound. Clementine tries to wake Alvin, but it is to no avail, leading her to believe he is dead. However, after Clementine activates the PA, Alvin springs to life and grabs a spare gun in Carver's desk, musing over how a 'big man' uses such a small weapon. He tells Clementine to leave him, saying that there is no way he will be able to escape the compound in his current condition. Just before Clementine leaves, Alvin tells her to look after his girls, saying he thinks Rebecca's baby will be a girl. After that, Hank, one of Carver's men, bursts into the office and shoots Alvin in the chest, however, Alvin uses one last ounce of strength and uses Carver's spare gun to shoot and kill Hank, shortly dying afterwards.
After Kenny had killed Johnny and Walter had been killed, Carver will take Alvin hostage to get closer to Kenny, Rebecca tries to stop him but Troy holds her at gunpoint, but seeing as Kenny (and Clementine if she went to find him) moved to a different spot from where they shot Johnny, Kenny has the opportunity to shoot Carver at a different angle. Alvin then tells Rebecca that he loves her as a way of saying goodbye as she tries to convince Carver to let him go.
Found Kenny: If Clementine went to find Luke and Kenny, she has the option to tell Kenny to shoot or tell him not to risk it. If she tells him to take the shot or simply does not say anything, Carver will be shot in the shoulder and knocked to the ground, but he gets up. Kenny tries to reload his gun to shoot him again but is too late as Carver shoots Alvin in the head.
Surrendered to Carver: If Clementine chose to give up with Rebecca and Alvin, and tries to plead with Carver to let Alvin go or simply does not get involved, Kenny will shoot Carver in the shoulder which knocks him to the ground, Carver then gets up, and with no remorse, shoots Alvin in the head.
If Alvin is saved in the previous episode, he is badly beaten up by Carver and left in his office. Later, Clementine finds him mortally wounded and nearly immobile. He manages to get up and gets a gun from Carver's drawer, when he hears Carver's men approaching them he tells Clementine to go, no matter what Clem says he stays behind because he is in too much pain to move. Before allowing Clementine to go, he promises her that he'll buy her some time, he then asks her to look after Rebecca and their child. Hank then runs in and before Alvin can take the shot, Hank shoots him in the shoulder, but just before he could die from the wound, he manages to shoot his murderer in the chest killing him as well, before dying himself.
Given that Alvin's brain wasn't destroyed may mean that he might have turned. If this is fact then he will have likely been put down by Tavia or any other Howe's member that came into the office in order to turn off the PA.
"I know it's a waste of time, but I can't stop thinking about the things I should've said to him... Things I should've talked to him about."
