- "That depends. You just give us what you have and we won't start anything with you. Otherwise, things are gonna get rough."
- —York to Richard and the group.
Nothing is known about York's life prior to or as the outbreak began. He may have lived near the Sanctuary.
At some point during the apocalypse, York came in contact with the Saviors and joined them. In the Sanctuary, he apperantly broke one of the rules and got his face burned off as punishment, presumably by Negan.
Area 22 - Marsh
York first appeared after Richard ordered an attack an a group of Saviors. York found this pretty funny, as he and his "boys" were taking wagers on whether or not they became walker food. After Richard asked to leave him and his group be, York made an offer: he and his group would leave Richard alone if they would give them all of their supplies. If they didn't, things would start getting rough. The player gets a decision: Pay the fee or fight the Saviors.
If the player chose to fight York and the Saviors, York will get disappointed, as he hoped he didn't get that answer. A fight ensues. After Richard and the group defeated the Saviors, he calls for a stop, but York is gonna tell Negan about this.
If the player chose to pay the fee, York will be pleased with the decision and leave with the supplies.
Area 23 - Hilltop
York will show up again with Negan and the other Saviors at the Hilltop, and will claim that Richard and the group denied giving them supplies regardless of their past actions. York is initially confident that Negan will punish Richard for his actions, but when the Kingdom resident reveals York had already collected the supplies and was attempting to collect them again, Negan hits York in the stomach with Lucille for punishment.
This list shows the victims that York has killed:
- Possibly numerous counts of zombies and unnamed survivors
- York is the third known Savior to have his face burned off by the iron punishment, the others being Dwight and Mark. However, it is still not known why York's face got burned.
- Unlike Dwight and Mark, York's face is burned on the right side instead of the left. His right eye also appears to have been blinded during the ordeal.
