Little is known about Wyatt's life before or as the outbreak began, though it is known he was friends with Eddie as well as someone named TJ and smoked marijuana. On one occasion, TJ was high on marijuana and tried to put a pancake in Eddie's CD player.
Wyatt's story starts with Eddie and Wyatt getting chased and shot at by Nate. Eddie mentions he shot a guy from Nate's group. Wyatt and Eddie try to hide from Nate by turning off the main highway onto a back road driving into a foggy forest. The fog makes it hard to see and Eddie hits a police officer. To decide who does the duty of checking up on the injured bystander, Eddie decides they should play rock-paper-scissors. The player has the option to turn the game down and use alternate dialogue to convince Eddie to go. Depending on who has to stay behind in the car, either Eddie or Wyatt end up cornered by Nate and make the split decision to leave behind the latter to escape.
Refusing to play/Winning: Staying in the car: After Eddie leaves with the gun to go check on the victim, he throws back the keys to the car. However, the keys fall onto the dark floor, and Wyatt is forced to find them. After finding them, he sees the truck outside and he is attacked by Nate. Barely getting Nate off him, Wyatt drives away leaving Eddie behind.
Losing: Checking on the victim: Wyatt heads out with the gun to go check on the victim. After a little bit of a walk, he finds the victim dying. He tries to help the man but has to fend off approaching walkers. If the in-game choice is made for Wyatt to bring the man back to the car, he will also have to shoot walkers while making his way back. Either choosing to aid the man or not, Wyatt slowly makes his way back while actively shooting at walkers. In the distance, Wyatt will hear Eddie being attacked by Nate. Eddie leaves by driving off, which forces Wyatt to run away deeper into the fog to escape the walkers who are closing in, leaving the victim behind.
Four hundred days into the apocalypse he is part of the group with Vince, Bonnie, Shel, Becca, and Russell who all set up camp out in the woods near the Gil's Pitstop. That night they are approached by Tavia who tells him that she is part of a community. When she asks if anyone wants to go with her, Wyatt will respond with one of the two:
If he left Eddie behind he will instantly jump on the chance saying that maybe he could find Eddie there, so he leaves with Tavia. However if Eddie left him behind then Wyatt will be bitter and say that they can't trust anyone and will refuse to go, unless Tavia mentions they might find friends or family in the community.
Wyatt accepts Tavia's offer (Unknown): If Wyatt decides accept Tavia's offer he will appear in Season 2.
Wyatt stays at camp (Unknown): If Wyatt decides to stay at camp, he will not appear, leaving his status unknown.
Wyatt appears in this episode only if he accepted Tavia's offer. He briefly interacts with Clementine when she is told to see Carver. She stops to look in a window and is told by Wyatt to get a move on, as Carver will probably get mad at her. After the herd's attack on Howe's Hardware, Wyatt's status is unknown.
This list shows the victims Wyatt has killed:
- Numerous counts of zombies
If Wyatt fails to do certain tasks, it is possible for him to die. These deaths are considered non-canon and will result in a game over. Wyatt will then re-spawn and be allowed to try again. Below is a pictorial list of when Wyatt can die.
- "How much stupid can you pull off tonight, man!? Turn the fucking lights on!"
- —Wyatt shouting at Eddie. (Determinant)[src]
Eddie is a close friend of Wyatt. As Wyatt mentions that they have been through some tough things together. And Wyatt remembers many things, such as doing drugs with Eddie, plus, he is clearly guilt-ridden in case he abandons Eddie, expressing a sad look on his face, further implying a great friendship. Also, in the epilogue, as Tavia, if you say that family and friends could be in the community, Wyatt agrees to go because he believes Eddie could be there.
Wyatt apparently had dealings with Nate at some point early on in the apocalypse, though these were terminated following Eddie's shooting of Nate's friend. Nate had no problem hunting down Wyatt and Eddie to kill them both.
- "Yeah screw this, we don't know what kind of people we're dealing with. The only reason I'm with you guys is because Vince saved my life."
- —Wyatt mentioning that Vince saved him once.[src]
Wyatt seems to have a good relationship with Vince. This is assumed because, in a determinant case during the epilogue, a piece of dialogue from Wyatt can be found with him saying, "The only reason I'm with you guys is because Vince saved my life." He only says that if Eddie abandoned Wyatt during his story.
- "Wait, you find survivors? Do you find a lot? Well we gotta go, Eddie might be there."
- —Wyatt to Tavia about find survivors. (Determinant)[src]
Wyatt initially had his suspicions for Tavia, but when Tavia explains her community and they find survivors, he instantly jumps on the chance saying that maybe he could find Eddie there. However, if Eddie left him behind, then Wyatt will be bitter and say that they can't trust anyone and will refuse to go unless Tavia mentions they might find friends or family in the community.
- "Dude, you better get up and see Bill. He doesn't like to wait. So... you should probably go."
- —Wyatt to Clementine about Carver. (Determinant)[src]
If he is convinced to leave with Tavia at the end of 400 Days, Wyatt is seen as a member of Carver's community in "In Harm's Way", and appears to serve as a guard. While Wyatt and Carver are not seen interacting, Wyatt shows fear of him when talking to Clementine, warning her to not keep Carver waiting.
- "In Harm's Way" (Determinant)
- Wyatt, along with Vince, Bonnie, Russell, and Shel, was introduced via Vines from the Telltale Games official Twitter account early June 2013.
- In the Epilogue, it is revealed that Vince saved Wyatt's life after he got separated from Eddie if he left the car.
- If you stayed in the car, Wyatt's story will chronologically be the first story without any interaction with a walker.
- Depending if Wyatt took the car and left Eddie, Eddie's car appears at the campsite.
- Alternatively, if Eddie took the car, it can be seen abandoned at Gil's Pitstop.
- In the epilogue scene, there seems to be a small error in Wyatt's picture when the photos are being thrown in the fire. Wyatt seems to be wearing a cap.
- Wyatt possibly smoked marijuana before the apocalypse:
- Wyatt mentions that their friend, TJ, got high and tried to put a pancake in the CD player of Eddie's radio.
- Eddie tells Wyatt to get some "sticky" out of the glove box moments after losing Nate.
- Eddie and Wyatt make numerous drug references throughout his story about people who both owned drugs or were on drugs.
- If Wyatt chooses to leave the car, he has the highest amount of walker kills in "400 Days", killing several on the way back to the car.
- He is also the only protagonist who has never killed a named character.
- Wyatt is the only character who will end up alone at the end of his story, regardless of the player's decisions. All other characters will (or have the chance to) end up with at least one other person at the end of each of their respective stories.
- Wyatt and Tavia are the only playable characters to not have any mentioned or seen family members.
- Wyatt wears a "Chris Rebbert and the Hand Jobs" T-shirt, a fictional band created by Chris Rebbert, the brother of Sean Ainsworth, a game designer at Telltale.
- It's also notable that Chris Rebbert's appearance was used when designing Eddie, a central character in Wyatt's story.
