"Okay. You have to listen to me, okay, Elton? I need you to stay inside the box and be as quiet as you can, and you can't leave, no matter what, okay? (...) I'm gonna go find us a safe way home. And I'm gonna lock that door from the outside so nothing can hurt you. Okay? And to be extra sure... This is a very special horn. Okay? It keeps anyone who's holding it safe forever. So go ahead and hold it. Hold onto it tight, okay? (...) Don't be. I'm not scared, okay? And you shouldn't be, either. It's all gonna work out the way it's supposed to, right? I love you, Elton. (...) It's okay."

Isaac Ortiz is a character in AMC's The Walking Dead: World Beyond. He is the husband of Amelia and father of Elton and the unborn Esmerelda.


Lincoln, Nebraska

Isaac Ortiz grew up with a fascination of science. When he was 10 years old, he was trying to take a photo of Mars when a meteor shot straight through the sky. The meteor was captured on film and this furthered Isaac's fascination with science, specifically paleontology and the extinction of the dinosaurs.

As an adult, Isaac became a professional paleontologist and lived in Lincoln, Nebraska. He later met a fellow scientist named Amelia and the two later married. In 2005, she gave birth to their son, Elton. In early 2010, Isaac and Amelia began to expect their second child, a girl, who Elton lovingly named prematurely, Esmerelda.


Lincoln, Nebraska

In the fall of 2010, the outbreak became global. Early in the day of the global outbreak, Isaac began to hear reports of the virus and increased police activity around the local hospital. Isaac later took Amelia, who was in her third trimester, and Elton to his storage room where he kept all of his fossils. He then showed Elton a picture of a meteor he took when he was 10 and explained what meteors were and how one killed all the dinosaurs. Amelia asked Isaac to not teach Elton that material when he was so young. While in the storeroom, Amelia got a text that her meeting at Nebraska State University had been pushed up to earlier, prompting Amelia to leave. Isaac then warned Amelia about the virus and police at the hospital. Elton then revealed that he wanted to name his little sister Esmerelda, to which Isaac and Amelia disagreed with. Amelia then left as Isaac took Elton over to his desk and helped him brush and clean the fossils.
