Not much is known about Siddiq's life prior to or as the outbreak began. However, according to the Comic Series, he was in Miami when the apocalypse happened and he eventually headed north to find safety. He eventually found Pete and joined his crew.
Two weeks before the events of the game, he is present on Pete's ship laughing at Berto's horrible jokes. He then settles down so the crew can play cards.
Siddiq is first seen on the deck of The Companion along with Berto. Michonne saves him as a loose sail threatens to sweep him off his feet and potentially knock him off the boat. He is present when Michonne is walking the deck of the boat, scanning the horizon. He is left behind on the boat when Michonne and Pete leave to investigate The Mobjack.
Siddiq appears outside the house a few hours after the events of the last episode with Oak and Berto, in Norma's custody. Norma talks with Michonne about a trade offer, revealing Pete (Determinant) and the rest of her friends as well. She proposes they trade, Randall for her friends. As a way of showing she is genuine, she frees Pete straight away or fires a flare to reveal the crew to Michonne. (Determinant)
The two parties debate the trade, Michonne having Sam show a bag covered Randall to show/feign he's alive. As they talk, Jonas or Gabby (Determinant) express anger and a desire for retribution for what happened at Monroe. Norma tries to calm them to no avail; they kill Berto, creating a panic in the debate, Siddiq is left horrified at the death of his friend. Norma apologises for their actions, trying to calm the situation. However, Walkers heard the gunshot and begin to approach the group. The exchange can take various forms:
Randall is alive, Michonne makes the trade: Michonne removes the bag off of Randall, enraging Norma upon seeing how heavily beaten he is. Regardless, Norma allows Oak and Saddiq to be freed, the pair hiding behind the gate. Randall is shoved to Norma, the women cutting him free of his bindings as more Walkers appear. Once freed, Randall charges at Michonne and tackles her. In self defence, Michonne or Sam (Determinant) kills him. Norma is deeply angered, ordering her group to attack them.
Randall is a Walker, Michonne makes the trade: Michonne leaves the bag on Randall's head, shoving him towards Norma. Norma allows Oak and Siddiq to be returned. As she removes the bag from Randall's head, she realises he is a walker. She puts him down, quickly ordering her group to attack Michonne and the others.
Randall is a Walker/alive, Michonne does not make the trade: Due to the growing tensions, Michonne calls the trade off. Angered, Norma shoots Oak in the stomach, causing Pete to instinctively shoot Jonas dead. In the commotion, Randall tries to break free from Sam or is thrown forward (Determinant), promptly shot by her. Norma goes to attack but is kicked down by Oak. Siddiq makes it inside as Norma orders her group attack.
Randall is a Walker/alive, Michonne signals Paige: Michonne seizes the moment, signalling Paige to kill Norma. She takes a shot, successfully hitting Norma in the shoulder. Her companions are shocked at the attempted killing, shooting at the group. Oak knocks Norma down as he runs, ensuring that he and Siddiq make it to the house alive. The scene now plays out as if the player verbally refused to trade.
Siddiq flees to the house. Once there, he is given a pistol by Pete to defend the house with. Shortly after, the house is set a blaze by a barrage of molotovs. Siddiq flees upstairs eventually making it out of the house through a window. He meets up with the others outside, soon fleeing the scene with them.
For the rest of the events of the Video Game, Siddiq's whereabouts remain unknown, until his story continues in the Comic Series. For further details see:
