- "I said we're staying right here! We're safe inside the bus! Nothing's gonna--"
- —Clyde to the prisoners before he is bitten.[src]
Almost nothing is known about Clyde's life before the outbreak began except that he was a prison guard.
In the apocalypse's early stages, Clyde was keeping order among Vince and his companions on the prison bus heading towards the prison. Clyde appears to be a subordinate of the bus driver, and seems prone to overreacting. Clyde shot and killed a prisoner, Marcus, who was choking another prisoner, Jerry. While Clyde and the rest of the prisoners were in a heated argument, Jerry reanimated and bit Clyde in the throat, killing him within seconds.
A reanimated Clyde is seen attacking Bonnie after she slides down a hill. If he was not killed by Russell, Bonnie will kill him by kicking the screwdriver into his head.
- Jerry (Infected)
While trying to calm himself and the prisoners down, after killing Marcus, Jerry reanimates and bites Clyde's throat, killing him within seconds into the attack.
- Russell (Determinant, Zombified)
When arriving to Gil's Pitstop, Russell will notice a reanimated Clyde with a screwdriver in his head. Depending on the player's actions, Russell can put Clyde out of his misery.
- Bonnie (Determinant, Zombified)
If Russell did not kill the zombified Clyde, Bonnie will awaken to see a zombified Clyde trying to attack her after rolling down the hill. The player then kills him by kicking the screwdriver further into his head.
This list shows the victims Clyde has killed:
Bennett seemed to dislike Clyde, constantly referring to him as boy. Bennett yells at Clyde to get back and break up the scuffle between the two prisoners. After Clyde shot one of them, he questioned him in disbelief on what he had just done.
- "You really wanna pull that trigger again, son?"
- —Danny standing up to Clyde.[src]
Danny did not think highly of Clyde. When Marcus began choking Jerry, Danny yelled at Clyde to break the two up, completely ignoring the fact that the guard was the authority figure. After Marcus was killed, Danny quickly became angry at Clyde's incompetence and cowardice, continuing to yell at him to call someone about the two deaths. This caused Clyde to become angry and threaten the remaining prisoners in an attempt to regain his position of authority. However, Danny saw that Clyde clearly didn't have the balls to shoot anyone else and stood up to him, forcing Clyde to back down. The two continued to argue until Clyde was suddenly killed by a reanimated Jerry, which elicited nothing beyond shock from Danny or any of the other prisoners.
- "This is what happens when you give guns to assholes."
- —Justin to Vince about Clyde.[src]
Justin did not think highly of Clyde. When Marcus began choking Jerry, Danny yelled at Clyde to break the two up, although Justin refused to be part of that. After Marcus was killed, Justin quickly became angry at Clyde's incompetence and cowardice, continuing to yell at him to call someone about the two deaths. This caused Clyde to become angry and threaten the remaining prisoners in an attempt to regain his position of authority, Justin attempts to calm him down with little success. The two continued to argue until Clyde was suddenly killed by a reanimated Jerry, which elicited nothing beyond shock from Justin or any of the other prisoners.
- "DON'T JUST STAND THERE!"
- —Vince yelling at Clyde.[src]
It is unknown whether the two knew or had any interaction with each other. On the prison bus, it was shown that Vince disliked Clyde for his cowardly behavior when he did nothing to save Jerry from Marcus. Vince was shocked by the prison inmates deaths, and also, when Clyde was killed by an undead Jerry.
