"I am? I guess I just laugh when I’m scared shitless."
—Pete to Michonne. [src]

Pete is the tritagonist in Telltale Games' The Walking Dead: Michonne. He is the captain of his ship, The Companion. The story shows some of his actions prior to his introduction in the Comic Series.


Pete's personality provides a sharp and equalizing contrast to Michonne's own nature. Level-headed, good natured, charismatic, pacifistic, accommodating and notably considerate are suitable words for Pete, who is adept at negotiating situations and using his words to solve problems as opposed to violence.

His amiable nature is first observed when he witnesses Michonne on the brink of committing suicide or during her attempt. (Determinant) He approaches her without judgement of her circumstances and offers that she join him and his crew on his boat, The Companion, despite no obvious benefit the extra member aboard the somewhat unimpressively-sized vessel would provide. He is also shown to further console her in her grievances for her family and to listen to her wholeheartedly, especially surrounding topics such as her family and the group she left (Rick's group).

Despite their positive relationship, however, Pete criticizes Michonne for using violence to resolve issues, claiming that she should let him do the talking and tells Michonne to, "keep the machete on her back."


Chesapeake Bay, Virginia

Not much is known about Pete's life prior to the outbreak. However, according to the Comic Series, it can be presumed that Pete had been a fisherman along the East Coast for most of his life. He possibly owned his boat, The Companion, before the apocalypse. It is possible he was acquainted with Rashid and his family prior to the outbreak, meaning he would have likely sailed through the Chesapeake Bay area at least once before.


Location Unknown

Throughout the outbreak, Pete survived on the seas with his boat called The Companion, trading with others near land such as Rashid and his family in Chesapeake Bay when he sailed by the area. Overtime, he gathered multiple new crewmates to help him on board, first of which was Siddiq, who later became Pete's first mate. A little over a year before "In Too Deep," both Oak and Berto also joined the crew. At some point, Pete had discovered the community of Oceanside and continued to maintain a relatively good relationship with the people there.

Main article: Pete (Comic Series)


"In Too Deep"

Pete's first appearance in this episode is at the end of a flashback where Michonne holds a gun to her own head. After she either throws the gun to the ground (Determinant), Pete appears in front of her with a reassuring smile on his face, offering her a chance to come with him.

In the present, Michonne awakens in the cabin of The Companion to find Pete testing his radio signal. He asks her why she is awake, to which she explains that she can not be there without something to do. Understanding, he calls in Oak to rest while Michonne takes his shift. She asks Pete what he is trying to do. Pete says that he is trying to reach Vanessa, as they had not responded to his signals on schedule. He claims to have heard a woman's voice broadcasting once, but Michonne shrugs it off.

Oak comes into the cabin, telling Pete to stop trying to get Vanessa, believing that he is worrying too much. Pete is unconvinced, however, that his worries are unfounded. He continues varying the settings until they all hear a cry for help. Oak still tried to shrug it off as someone who mid probably going to die. Michonne can agree with Oak, but Pete will still have her go on the radio to try and find a cleaner signal regardless. Once she finds the right channel, (Determinant) the signal breaks as the other end of the channel switches off the radio. Pete comes back and asks after her progress. Once she relates the results of her efforts, the boat crashes and stops in the water.

Pete and his crew meet out on the deck of the ship, discussing what had happened. They discover that the sail was damaged and that they had no means of getting themselves unstuck. Pete hands Michonne a flashlight and binoculars to search for whatever had caught them and for anything else nearby while he goes to check on the sail. When Michonne discovers a sunken boat beneath The Companion, Pete remarks that it was a shame, but at least it was not Vanessa's boat. Pete notices a harbored ferry on a nearby island and offers to check it out for supplies and signs of life. Oak disagrees, saying that they needed to focus on moving on and not looking for more people. Michonne can side with Oak, saying that finding more people while they were stranded would not be a good idea. Pete stubbornly presses his case, saying that at least they might find some supplies. Oak relents when Michonne volunteers to go with him. When Pete grabs the rowboat and prepares it for travel, Oak quietly asks Michonne to not let anyone else come back with them to The Companion.

Pete takes the oars of the rowboat and guides it toward the ferry. Pete jokingly asks her if she likes his hairstyle. When he finally gets her to relax, the boat suddenly tips. Michonne quickly grabs her machete and hacks at a walker that had grabbed the boat from under the water. It dies, but another walker grabs her and tries to pull her underwater. Pete quickly kills it before it can get her, and she returns the favor when a walker tries to grab him and pull him out. Pete thanks her, but the boat suddenly capsizes, tossing them both out. Pete successfully makes it to land and helps Michonne out when she reaches him.

Pete and Michonne enter the ferry either by the upper deck level via a ladder or the lower deck through a broken window. If Pete and Michonne venture through the lower entrance, Pete discovers a group of massacred people all sitting in positions suggesting executions. He is horrified by this, but forces himself to continue in case there were any survivors. He allows Michonne to lead ahead through the halls, eventually stumbling across a walker hanging from a wall. Pete notes that it looked like he may have been tortured before death, wondering who could have done this.

In the ferry's designated cafeteria, they stumble upon a duffel bag filled with supplies. Pete smiles, thanking their fortune, but he then questions whether it belonged to someone still alive. He leaves the bag alone for the moment, opting to explore the room for any signs of life. Michonne and Pete suspend their search when they abruptly hear a noise come from a nearby locker. They investigate, expecting a walker to be inside, but it turns out to be a teenaged boy, and he reveals a gun. The two fall still while the boy's sister enters the room, grabbing the bag and preparing to run from who she believes to be two hunters chasing them. Michonne and Pete try to defuse the situation, but a group of walkers attack from an adjoining room. Pete breaks off to deal with them while Michonne protects the two siblings. Once the walkers are dealt with, the teenage girl again tries to flee with the bag. Regardless of whether or not Michonne tries to stop her, all four are interrupted by the door being busted open by a group of armed survivors. Foremost amongst them, a man who introduces himself as Randall, asks to know who Michonne and Pete are. Pete stays quiet as he and the others are tied up and taken off of the ship, and remains quiet on the way to Monroe. Randall ignores Pete when questioning Michonne, clearly identifying her as the one in charge of the pair.

Pete is taken from Michonne and locked up with John in a separate part of the colony from Michonne and Samantha. Michonne has the option to tell Samantha who she and Pete are.

Pete's final appearance in this episode comes after Randall finishes torturing John. (Determinant) Norma, the community's leader, brings Pete over to Michonne and John. He is disturbed to see John so brutally beaten. (Determinant) Before Michonne and John are taken to a secure room, Pete asks Michonne what he should do. Randall overhears this and joins in, asking Michonne what Pete should do to stay alive. Michonne can tell him to give the truth or to not say anything to Norma, but regardless of her answer, Randall and Zachary remove them and bring them to Sam. Norma is seen cracking her knuckles before beginning her interrogation.

"Give No Shelter"

After this, Michonne frees Pete and the three attempt an escape. The horn sounds and the survivors of Monroe are quickly alerted, however the three stay out of their sight. They make it into the cabin of a boat, where Michonne spots a getaway vehicle. Pete, however, decides to take matters into his own hands and wishes to speak give himself up.

Michonne lets Pete leave: If Pete leaves he will walk slowly out of the cabin with his hands in the air, he is not seen for the rest of the episode.

Later, after Michonne kills the rest of Randall's men, she restrains him by locking his hands in a vice. The player has the option to ask Randall where Pete is and he will attempt to provoke Michonne by responding that he had killed him. After gaining a brief second of enjoyment from her reaction, he admits that he's only messing with her and that Pete is still being held captive by Norma.
