- "Goddam herds are like amoebas, growing, separating, splitting off into multiple herds. Can't get a goddamn break with these things. Getting worse every day."

Almost nothing is known about Ben's life before the outbreak or as the outbreak began. He lost his whole family a year before the prison assault in a swarm outside F.D. Roosevelt State Park, and seems to have a trauma about it.
Ben participates in the attack on the prison, as a machine gun operator. After the fall of the prison, Ben and a small group of surviving soldiers hole up in the prison to regroup, Ben along with Lilly and Matthew barricade the door. As they count their ammo Ben has eleven 115-grain 9mm rounds for his Glock 19. Later on during the night, Ben comes out half asleep when Gloria sees the bite on Austin's wrist. Ben goes with his knifes along with Lilly and Matthew to search the corridor. The next day when Lilly leads the survivors out of the prison. They are led safely back to Woodbury by Lilly Caul, who becomes the new leader of the town.
After the Church group try to take their lives in a suicide pact, part of their plan was to blow the gates of Woodbury which led a superherd into Woodbury, and poison the Woodburians.
Ben, among with twelve Woodburians, was poisoned in the suicide pact while being drunk.
- Ben is one of six Woodburians to survive the prison assault along with Lilly Caul, Hap Abernathy, Matthew Hennesey, Gloria Pyne and Wilkins.
