Clive is an original character who first appeared in Telltale Games' The Walking Dead: Season One, and an antagonist in Bonnie's Story and is a character in Shel's Story. He is a returning character in "400 Days" and serves the secondary antagonist of Bonnie's Story.
Very little is known about Clive's life prior to or as the outbreak began. At some point during his life, he was diagnosed with cancer. He attended a Cancer Support Group in Savannah, which was led by Vernon.
Following the outbreak, Clive and the rest of his cancer group moved into the safe haven of Crawford. After their leader, Oberson, tightened security and began eliminating liabilities, Clive's group was in danger of being killed or forced onto the streets. After half of their group was murdered, he and the rest fled Crawford, and into the sewers, where they discovered a fallout shelter, as well as a morgue. They made this their home, defending it as well as possible, where he remained there with Vernon, Brie, Boyd, and Joyce.
After Vernon departed to assist Lee in getting back to his group, he said his farewells to Vernon. He disappeared along with the others after Vernon returned.
It's unknown when or how, but sometime after Clive and his group steal the boat, their leader, Vernon, dies from unknown cause. At some point Clive along with Boyd and Joyce found and joined up with Roman's group.
An unknown person steals medical supplies from Clive's group. He, Roman, and Stephanie go chase after and search the cornfield with flashlights to attempt to find the suspect. Clive is not mentioned by name, but his figure can be seen walking through the cornfield and his voice can be heard.
Clive is with Boyd and Joyce at Gil's Pitstop with other group members: Roman, Shel, Stephanie, and Becca. He listens to Becca play the guitar in the diner. Later, he argues against releasing the intruder and suggests they execute him because an outsider who knows their location is not trustworthy. Shel must give the final vote in either deciding to have mercy on the man's life by letting him go or kill him to protect the group from any unwanted outsiders. Depending on Shel's choice, if the man is let go, he will storm the pit-stop with other people to raid the camp. In the ensuing battle, Boyd dies. If the man is killed, no more outsiders will come to the camp and Boyd will remain alive.
Twenty-three days pass since the intruder incident, and Stephanie tries to make off with the group's supplies and leave the pitstop. However, she is caught by Roman and thrown into the back of a van truck. Clive stands guard over the vehicle with Roman as Shel makes her way over to discuss the matter. After the end of Shel's story, his whereabouts become unknown.
This list shows the victims Clive has killed:
- Dee (Indirectly Caused)
- Roberto (Caused, Determinant)
- Stephanie (Caused)
- Possibly numerous counts of zombies
Joyce and Clive seem to have a good friendship, as they stayed together at the morgue and Clive was shown to be concerned about Joyce's health. They later end up at the Pitstop, where both of them agree that it is a bad idea to set Roberto free and have no other choice, but to kill him.
- "He CAN'T stay here!"
- —Clive to Boyd about Roberto.[src]
- "We need you here!"
- —Clive about Vernon leaving. (Determinant)[src]
Vernon and Clive were never really seen interacting due to Clive staying at the morgue while Vernon and Brie went to Crawford with Lee and the others, however Clive didn't want him to leave and needed him to stay, but Vernon reassures him and the others that he'll be back. Later, Vernon and the others steal Kenny's boat and during that period of time Vernon is killed. Once Boyd, Joyce and Clive arrive at the pit-stop, Boyd reveals that he blamed Vernon for their group falling apart as Vernon wanted the boat the whole time. If Lee threatened Vernon back at the morgue, Clive will mention how he couldn't shoot him and if Lee had said that to him, he would have shot him without hesitating, showing that Clive did not respect Vernon for no doing so.
- "I still can't believe we let that guy threaten us like that! If that guy Lee, had told ME I didn't have the balls, I'da shot him on the spot!"
- —Clive about Lee. (Determinant)[src]
Clive and Lee never interacted due to Clive staying at the morgue while Vernon and Brie went to Crawford with Lee and the others, but Clive seems distrustful of Lee. This is further explored in "400 Days", where if Lee threatened Vernon, Clive will remark of Vernon's unwillingness to shoot Lee after being verbally intimidated by him. However, Clive states that if Lee spoke to him in the same fashion, he would not have hesitated to shoot him.
- "I agree, keeping him here is not an option. "
- —Roman agreeing with Clive about Roberto.[src]
- "Well he's not staying here. You let in a stranger and everything starts breaking down."
- —Clive to Roman's group about trusting Roberto.[src]
Clive is shown to be hostile and distrustful towards Roberto when he breaks in and tries to steal their supplies. He suggests that they have to kill him, while Boyd wants to set him free. If Shel decides to free him, Clive reluctantly lets him go, saying they hope they did the right thing.
- Clive is one of the few characters to have two voice actors: in his case, Jason Victor ("Around Every Corner") and Donovan Corneetz ("400 Days").
- Clive is the only member of the cancer support group to appear in more than one story of "400 Days".
