"WALT! Ow!"
—Jean to her husband, Walt.[src]

Jean is an original character who first appeared in "Russell's Story" in Telltale Games' The Walking Dead: 400 Days.


Location Unknown

Almost nothing is known about Jean's life prior to or as the outbreak began, except that she was married to Walt.


Season One

"400 Days"

"Russell's Story"

Walt was surviving with his wife, Jean, at Gil's Pit-stop when a group of masked looters attacked them. On day 184, when Russell and Nate get into the diner, Walt starts to shout because Jean was shot by one of the looters. Walt, believing Russell and Nate to be the same looters, starts to complain on how they have returned to finish them off and steal their food supplies. Nate then asks Russell whether they should kill the couple, which leads to Russell choosing to leave Nate, or stick with him. Choosing to leave will make Russell walk out of the back, stop and hear two gun shots and Jean's screams before she dies. If Russell stays, Nate will shoot Walt and Jean in front of him, the pair dying of bloodloss.

"Shel's Story"

On day 236, when Shel and her group take up residence in the gas station, she is seen as a walker, chained to a post in the back lot as a "watchdog". If Shel approaches her, she sees the zombified Jean eating the carcass of a puppy. Jean growls at her before returning her attention to the puppy.


Killed By

Nate decides to kill Walt and his wife and take their supplies after they tried to shoot down him and Russell. Nate shoots Jean in the neck resulting in her reanimation as a walker.

Killed Victims

This list shows the victims Jean has killed:

  • One puppy (Infected)
  • Roberto (Infected, Indirectly Caused, Determinant)
  • Possibly numerous counts of zombies



"WALT! Ow!"
—Jean to Walt.[src]

Jean was married to Walt before the outbreak started. It is clear that they have a very loving relationship, as Walt risks his own life to protect an injured Jean, from both Nate and Russell. But, due to their small role and short lifespan, the relationship was never explored further.
