Nothing is known about Ben's life before the outbreak.
Ben accompanies Connor, along with Breannah, as they board Strand's yacht and serves as his bodyguard. After Travis and Alicia are taken captive by Connor, Ben and Breannah stay behind with Reed to watch over the remaining captives. Meanwhile, Luis Flores and Nick are on a raft traveling back to The Abigail. Alarmed at the presence of armed hostiles on the boat, Luis quickly guns down Ben and Breannah, allowing Madison to gain the advantage over Reed.
