- "Martin returned from his patrol. He saw a herd, couldn't tell if it was The Whisperers or not. He followed it to the Hilltop-- They're under attack!"
- —Brian to William.[src]
Nothing is known about Brian's life prior to or as the apocalypse began.
Brian runs yelling to William. He mentions that Martin while returning from patrol saw a herd, followed it as he didn't know if it was The Whisperers or not and discovers the Hilltop under attack. William tells Brian to gather up everyone he can.
- When Brian was initially introduced in Issue 161 he was referred to as Taylor but later In Volume 27: The Whisperer War, the name Taylor was changed to Brian.
- This was due to him initially sharing the same name as another minor character from the Kingdom.
