Chet is an original character appearing in Telltale Games' The Walking Dead: Season One. He is Shawn Greene's best friend. He can be seen as either alive or as a zombie depending on Lee's choice of departure time leaving Clementine's house.
Almost nothing is known about Chet's life prior to or as the outbreak began, except that he lived near the area of Hershel's Farm with his mother, and was good friends with Andre Mitchell and Shawn Greene.
After Lee and Clementine meet in her house, she asks Lee what they should do next. Lee has to decide if they should look for help when it is still bright outside, or wait until the cover of dark. This will determine how Chet is seen in-game.
Day Time Departure (Unknown): If Lee and Clementine decide to look for help during the day, Chet will be with Shawn Greene, trying to clear the road near Clementine's house in her neighborhood. He claims that he wouldn't get home at the rate they were at. He seems a bit disappointed due to the fact they were having hot dishes that night. When walkers approach them, Shawn, Lee Everett, and Clementine clear away the road and escape to Hershel's Farm, with Chet riding in the back of the truck. There, Chet tells Shawn that he has to return home because his mother will be irritated if he is not home at a certain time.
Night Time Departure (Undead): If Lee and Clementine decide to look for help during the night, Chet will be replaced by police officer Andre Mitchell, and will appear reanimated as a walker, attempting to attack the group until they flee in Andre's police car.
- Killed By
- Zombies (Alive)
If Lee chooses to leave with Clementine at night, Shawn and Andre will mention that Chet was bitten and that they were looking for the zombie that got him. When Lee and Clementine find out about Hershel's farm, Chet will appear reanimated as a zombie and approach the four of them. Andre Mitchell will attempt to put Chet down, but can't do it being Chet's friend. They leave and Chet remains as a walker.
This list shows the victims Chet has killed:
- Possibly a few zombies
If Lee fails to complete certain tasks, it is possible for Chet to be killed. These deaths are non-canon and result in a game over. Lee will then re-spawn and be allowed to try again. Below is a pictorial list of when Chet can die.
- "Hey, Shawn... I'm a run on home."
- —Chet saying goodbye to Shawn. (Determinant)[src]
Shawn and Chet were neighbors, and had been friends before the apocalypse began. They remain friends after its outbreak, and are in Atlanta when it began. Upon traveling back to the area that Lee Everett is present in, they are forced to stop after coming upon a roadblock. Depending on Lee's decision to leave with Clementine at day or night, Chet will either be a walker, or he is assisting Shawn with clearing the roadblock. As a zombie, Shawn seems to be in horror and shock at his death. After clearing the roadblock in the daytime decision, Chet will drive them to Shawn's father Hershel's farm, where he bids them farewell in a friendly manner.
- "I'm sorry, Shawn. Chet was a good dude. "

- "DON'T EAT US!!!"
