Brody seems to suffer from anxiety due to her having panic attacks. She often overthinks or is worried that a particular situation will get worse. Brody sometimes lives in a fantasy world, as she states that she wants to do several things and what she has done yet, referring that maybe that might help her cope with the horrors in the apocalypse.
Nothing is known about Brody's life prior to or as the outbreak began, except that she was a student at Ericson's Boarding School for Troubled Youth, and lived around the area all of her life. She also had a close friendship with Violet.
During the early days of the outbreak, the teachers at the school left Brody along with the rest of the children to fend for themselves. Brody assumed some sort of leadership role under Marlon, in order to keep the other children safe.
Eventually, while on a supply run outside of the safe-zone around the school, Brody and Marlon, alongside the twins Sophie and Minerva, ran into a hostile group known as the Delta. Marlon broke a deal with the raiders and handed over the twins in exchange for their group's protection. Marlon and Brody then told the rest of the group that walkers killed Sophie and Minerva.
After that day, Brody and her best friend Violet grew distant from one another. It is unknown if Brody distanced herself from Violet out of guilt over lying about the twins' fates or if Violet blamed her for their supposed deaths.
Brody returns from hunting with Aasim and Mitch to the school when walkers attack them and the students who came out to protect them. She remarks to Marlon that there were a lot of walkers in the area before taking her haul inside to Omar. She is later seen in the schoolyard talking to Marlon until Clementine and Alvin Jr. approach them to apologize for AJ hitting Marlon. He accepts the apology, Brody calling AJ "sweet" in response before the four of them join the other students for dinner. Brody eats her dinner quickly and leaves to go sleep, bidding the other teenagers a good night.
The next morning, Clementine meets with Marlon to learn about the way the students survive, which includes staying within the borders of the safe zone he established and hunting and fishing in certain areas. He asks her to either go with Violet and Brody to keep the peace between them or go with Aasim and Louis
If Clementine chooses to go fishing with Violet and Brody: Clementine and AJ walk with Brody and Violet as the latter pair lead them to the fishing stream. Brody said that she wished everybody could go on a road trip together suggesting that Clementine could drive for them. While Violet seemed annoyed, she asked Clementine where she would go if she could. Violet is unimpressed with their ideas on where they could go, causing Brody to be dismayed. After arriving at the fishing traps, Brody volunteers to retrieve the spears from inside their supply shack. Clementine and AJ follow her inside, where Brody reveals that she and Violet had had a strained relationship ever since Tennessee's sisters had died. Clementine learns that Violet and Minerva had been close and that her and Sophie dying during a supply run had crushed her. Brody asks Clementine if she would be willing to talk to Violet on her behalf, as she had been unable to speak with her about Minerva and Sophie for a year. Clementine can agree or not, the former resulting in Brody thanking Clementine for her help. Brody retrieves a few spears to give to Violet and goes to check the traps further downstream.
Clementine and Violet go to try to catch fish together, Violet derisively looking at Brody and mocking her road trip fantasies. Violet says that she does not hate Brody, but Clementine can state that Brody thinks otherwise. Clementine can try to help resolve their differences by suggesting that perhaps Violet had blamed Brody for the twins' deaths, but Violet suggests that she no longer felt that it was Brody's fault. (Determinant) She reveals that the twins were not supposed to have been with Brody and Marlon outside of the walls the day that they had died, but that she should have been there in their place. After spending a few minutes catching a few fish, Brody returns to them to report that they hadn't been able to catch enough fish for the night. Hoping that Louis and Aasim had found better luck, the four of them leave the stream with their fish and go into the woods to find them. Violet quietly remarks that she would love to take a trip to the Grand Canyon if she had a working car, pleasing Brody that she was finally opening up to her.
Near their hunting site, the four of them discover that some of their traps had been triggered, but there were no animals to be found in them. They discover a walker caught in one of their traps, having been dealt with but not cut down. When Louis and Aasim appear and reveal that they hadn't cleaned those traps, Brody begins to panic at the thought of strangers being nearby and taking all of their food. Without enough to eat for the night, Brody heads back to the school with Aasim and their few bounties to tell Marlon about what they had found.
If Clementine chooses to go hunting with Louis and Aasim: After Clementine, AJ, Louis, and Aasim visited the fishing cabin to find it ransacked, with the spears stolen, Violet and Brody arrived after failing to catch any fish as someone set off and ransacked their traps.
When Clementine discovered a hand-rolled cigarette made from a bible page, Brody panicked and fled to the school inform Marlon.
After Clementine, AJ, Violet, and Louis returned with food to the Boarding School, she questioned them where they found it. The group revealed that they got the food from the train station. Violet tells the others that Clementine had met a man there, Clementine sharing that he had had two different colored eyes to Brody's horror. Brody began to panic again, worrying that the man was still out there and that he could have tracked Clementine back to the school. Marlon attempts to calm her and take her somewhere more private to discuss it, but she angrily shoves him to the ground and declare that anything that happened because of her encounter with that man would be Clementine's fault.
At night, she argued with Marlon in the basement, Brody arguing that they had made a mistake long ago. Marlon replies that what had happened was both of their faults and demands that she keep quiet. Their argument was then interrupted by Clementine, Marlon trying to dissuade her from inquiring about what they were discussing and angrily rebuking Brody when she tried to speak. Unfazed, Clementine asks Brody to speak for herself. (Determinant) Brody reveals to Clementine that the story they had told everyone about Minerva and Sophie being killed by walkers had ben a lie. The truth was that Marlon and Brody had allowed a group of raiders- including the man Clementine had seen at the train station- to take the twins with them in exchange for leaving the rest of them alone. Angered, Marlon impulsively strikes Brody in the head with a flashlight to shut her up, but he strikes her too hard and ends up fracturing her skull.
Stunned, Brody collapses against the air-conditioning unit and falls unconscious. Marlon profusely apologizes to her and runs to look for a first aid kit, Clementine remaining by her side as she slowly stirs. Brody is unaware of her surroundings when she wakes up, unable to see due to her head wound. Clementine tells her that she is there, and Brody informs Clementine that she is in danger. After some prodding, she tells Clementine that Marlon had said that he would allow the raiders to take Clementine and AJ if they came to the school, another deal in exchange for safety. Shortly thereafter, Brody dies of her wounds, greatly upsetting Marlon. He initially questions what he should do next before realizing that Brody would reanimate. He runs to the exit, locking Clementine inside with Brody without a means to kill her. He apologizes, unwilling to let Clementine tell the others about the truth.
In the dark, Clementine loses track of Brody as she goes to retrieve the flashlight in order to look for a way out of the basement. Brody reanimates loudly in the dark, her walker groans growing louder as Clementine locates the flashlight. While the light flickers, Brody attacks Clementine from the dark. Clementine drops a shelf on top of her and crawls under a different one to escape. After managing to unlock the cellar doors out of the basement, Clementine is tackled from behind by Brody, both of them falling down a flight of stairs. The walker climbs on top of Clementine to attempt to bite her, but Clementine reaches the flashlight and uses it to bash Brody's skull until she stopped moving.
Marlon then tried to convince the other students that Clementine had murdered Brody in the basement, pointing to the blood on her hands as proof. As the other students begin to believe him, Marlon steals AJ's gun and points it at Clementine, ready to kill her as "punishment" for Brody's death. Clementine reveals to the group what Brody told her about the raiders and says that Marlon killed her because she would not remain quiet about it. After the students begin to take Clementine's side, Marlon hedges and confesses to having killed Brody by accident. They become angry with Marlon and demand to know why he and Brody would have sent Tennessee's sisters to another group, giving Clementine the option to call Marlon a coward.
