Very little is known about Wayne's life prior to or as the outbreak began, except that he was born in 1979 and had a relative named Rachel. He is also an organ donor.
When he died while attempting to be evacuated from the city, Wayne had 28 dollars in his pocket, as well as a picture of a girl named Rachel.
Later, in a desperate attempt to escape the department store, Wayne's corpse was dragged inside the store, and gutted and dismembered by Rick and Glenn, but not before Rick looked through the contents of his wallets to show that he used to be a human as well. They used his decomposing innards and blood to camouflage themselves in order to escape the store. Rick said that if he ever found his family he would tell them about Wayne, although it is unknown if he ever did.
Using Wayne's guts, Rick and Glenn managed to get most of the way to a nearby construction site before rain washed the guts off of them. However, it allowed them to get close enough to run the remaining distance and steal a cube van to rescue the others.
- Killed By
- Unknown Cause (Alive)
It is likely Wayne was among the residents killed by walker in Atlanta. He then reanimated.
- T-Dog (Zombified)
As Glenn is bringing Rick back to the group, T-Dog comes up with a bat and beats a zombifed Wayne.
This list shows the victims Wayne has killed:
- At least 1 survivor (Infected)
- Possibly a few zombies
- "Guts" (Zombified)
- Wayne was an organ donor before the outbreak took place.
- This is ironic as Wayne's organs are then removed and smothered on Rick and Glenn to cover their scent. This may actually be what Glenn meant rather than that Wayne was an actual organ donor.
- While using Wayne's guts to move through the walkers undetected, Glenn has Wayne's intestines slung around his neck while Rick has Wayne's cut-off hands.
