"What the hell are you DOING?!"
—Sheila to Daryl Dixon[src]

Sheila Schneider is an original character from The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct.


Location Unknown

Almost nothing is known about Sheila's life before the outbreak, except she was born in 1978 and was a former clinical research technician. She's calm, with a dry acerbic wit.


Archer Creek

During the onset of the outbreak, Sheila and her partner Deborah fell in with the Archer Creek dam group after surviving a brutal attack on the way to Atlanta. Shelia joined the Dam's scavenger team under Kevin Hollis

ClaraChem Labs.

She is later found by Daryl Dixon at ClaraChem Labs. She is found trapped inside one of the lab stations and asks Daryl to free her, Daryl does so by activating the facility's hazard lockdown. After they both escape, she offers to join Daryl's group.

Firesign Stadium

If Sheila reaches Firesign Stadium, she and another survivor will board the last evacuation helicopter. When Daryl's brother Merle informs Daryl that the helicopter pilot was bitten, Daryl tries to tell Sheila but the helicopter takes off, leaving Shelia's fate unknown.


Killed By
  • Zombies (Supply Run, Determinant)
  • Helicopter crash (Speculation, Determinant)

Sheila along with any other survivor that may survive till the evacuation in Georgia, most likely died in a helicopter crash. As Merle notices that the "Whirlybird Pilot" had been bitten, and said he was already looking like he was going to turn. So the pilot might have turned mid-flight causing a crash, possibly killing Sheila and the other passengers.

Killed Victims

This list shows the victims Sheila has killed:

  • Possibly numerous counts of zombies


  • Prefers Pistols
  • Prefers Shotguns


  • Keeping Sheila alive until the end of the game rewards the player with the "Faster Stronger" relic.
