Troy is an original character and an antagonist in Telltale Games' The Walking Dead: Season Two. He is a member of William Carver's group. He served as the secondary antagonist of the first half of Season 2.
Troy is a violent, aggressive, and rather unintelligent individual that seems to enjoy tormenting those beneath him. While most guards at Howe's Hardware exert a modicum of patience when dealing with the "workers", Troy is quick to resort to violence and threats at the slightest provocation, even when dealing with children. Being one of Carver's right-hand men, Troy is unwaveringly loyal to him, though his lack of intellect keeps him from being respected by his leader, and ultimately leads to his death when Jane is able to trick him into lowering his gun.
Nothing is known about Troy's life prior to or as the outbreak began.
It is unknown when Troy joined Carver's group, but it can be inferred that he is a relatively trusted member as he joins Carver's team to help track down the cabin group. It is also implied that he made sexual deals with Jane in the past in exchange for helping Carver trust her and to get her out of the pen.
Troy, along with Carver, Bonnie and Johnny tracks the cabin group to the Moonstar Lodge after they leave the cabin. They save several members from a herd of walkers surrounding the lodge that were attracted by the out-of-control wind turbine, but then quickly surround them and take them hostage. Troy marches them into the lodge at gunpoint and guards them while Carver searches for Rebecca. When Johnny is suddenly shot dead by Kenny, Troy hides behind a pillar and scans unsuccessfully for the shooter. He stands by as Carver executes Walter, showing slight shock at the incident. He then holds Rebecca back as he brings out Alvin to face the same fate. If Clementine chose to seek out Kenny and tells him to shoot, or surrenders and doesn't say or do anything, Carver is shot in the shoulder, leaving Troy stunned. However, Carver quickly recovers from the nonlethal wound and kills Alvin. Otherwise, Troy continues to guard the prisoners as Kenny is coaxed out of hiding, and escorts them during the trip back to Carver's camp.
Troy appears at the start of the episode, allowing Sarah to relieve herself in the woods. He makes a questionably suggestive remark to which Sarah and Clementine glare at him for. He then talks to Carver about their current situation. He acts as the primary guard of the prisoners while they sleep in the yard. He is seen many times throughout the episode, mostly keeping Clementine, Kenny and Mike in line. When the walkers attack them, Troy comes in and saves Clementine, much to his irritation. He then orders them to their jobs and gets angry because he has to babysit Kenny and Mike for not doing their work properly. When Clementine is caught in the comic book store, he threatens Clementine with violence if she ever disobeys him again. Later on, after Luke, Kenny, Mike and Clementine are caught trying to plan an escape the compound, they are brought back to the garden area. While Carver brutally beats Kenny, Troy will hit Clementine with the butt of his assault rifle if she chooses to help Kenny, leaving a cut on her cheek. If Clementine does nothing, Sarita will be hit by Troy instead, and then he unnecessarily threatens them all with death.
Later on, after Carver is killed, Troy appears outside with the others, angrily asking them what they are trying to do. Luke slowly reaches for an assault rifle nearby but Troy notices and aims his gun at him. Jane, who approaches Troy seductively, starts to sweet talk him, causing him to lower his gun and soften slightly. However, she moves his gun and shoots him in the crotch, causing him to fall to the ground, screaming in pain. The group then uses him as a distraction as they push their way through the herd. Troy is then devoured by walkers.

After convincing Troy that she would lead him to safety, Jane shoots him in his genitals, leaving him writhing in pain on the ground, attracting zombies by his cries of pain.
