Nothing is known about Heath's life before or as the outbreak began. It is possible that he lived in Alexandria before the outbreak started.
Heath and Scott were best friends while in the community, and the two of them frequently went out on supply runs together. While Scott lay in critical condition following an accident during one of their trips, Heath hooked up with the doctor, Denise Cloyd. Heath was very loyal to Douglas Monroe, and like Regina Monroe and a handful of other residents, was highly suspicious of Rick Grimes and his band of survivors. He is seen in Issue 72, quietly around the party for Rick and his group to welcome them to the community, although he didn't talk to many except for Dr. Cloyd. Although Barbara tried to see if Michonne would like to date Heath, there was no real interaction or interest shown between them.
Alexandria Safe-Zone ChaosEdit
In Issue 81, Heath joins Glenn on the rescue mission to aid Andrea trapped in the nearby watchtower. The plan is to deliver food safely her way and lead some of the zombies away from the wall. When the rope between the community wall and a building outside breaks, Heath is trapped on the other side along with Glenn, Andrea, and Spencer.
Battle Against The SaviorsEdit
As Glenn, Maggie, and Sophia wish to join the Hilltop, Heath, along with Rick, Carl, and Michonne, he goes on the trip until they get there. Heath is functional as a driver. As they are captured and held hostage by the Saviors, Negan states that he doesn't want to kill Heath because of his skin color. Negan then leaves it up to chance who should be beaten. Heath was close to being chosen, but instead Glenn got the short straw and was selected by Negan. Heath watches as Glenn's skull is beaten in by "Lucille". When the Saviors leaves, Heath is seen crying over the loss.
Heath alongside Rick, Nicholas and Holly attempt to kill Negan as he is leaving Alexandria. They manage to kill the Saviors guarding Negan with help from Andrea, however before Negan is killed their guns are shot out of their hands by a group of hidden Saviors. Negan is outraged at the attempt on his life and says that one of them will die. Carl attempts to shoot Negan but misses and hits Lucille. This angers Negan even further, resulting in him lining Heath and the others up and threatening to kill them all, unless the remaining citizens of Alexandria throw Carl over the wall. The citizens refuse these demands and Negan begins his execution process. Midway through Nicholas interrupts and begs for his life, this angers Negan who says that if Rick, Holly or Heath tell him to kill Nicholas he will do so and spare them. Heath tells him no and says that he just scared.
The War BeginsEdit
Heath is seen sitting in Gabriel Stokes's Church as Rick, Paul Monroe, Ezekiel and a group of others are discussing battle plans for the upcoming battle of Sanctuary. He is later seen alongside a group of one hundred people from The Kingdom, Hilltop Colony and Alexandria Safe-Zone marching upon The Sanctuary.
This list shows the victims Heath has killed:
- Numerous counts of zombies.
Heath's romantic relationship with Denise started when Scott was healing from their scouting mishap. During this time, Heath would show his inner turmoil during his visits to an open-eared Denise. As time went on, Scott died despite all of Denise's care-giving and Heath would go on to dwell within his loneliness. Denise, also alone within the confines of the Alexandria Safe-Zone, gave Heath someone to connect with as she had seen him the most during his darkest times. As Eric and Aaron returned from a doomed recruiting mission, Andrea lead the injured Eric to Denise's where the survivors would find her and Heath in the throws of passion, much to everyone's initial shock. However, Heath confided in the relationship stating that it just happened that way and as time moved forward, Denise would show concern for his safety during his continued scouting missions.
Scott was Heath's best friend. Heath was ready to pick him up some antibiotics, which Scott needed. Heath is seen crying after his death, and demands that they have a funeral so that Scott's heroic nature would be remembered. After Douglas agrees to this due to the death of his wife, the group holds the funeral to which Heath highlights his best friend's importance to himself and the community. During the burial, he asks those carrying Scott to be careful with the body. Scott is put down by Michonne.
Glenn replaced Scott, and these two are seen to be good friends. Heath also saved Glenn's life once. When Negan killed Glenn, Heath was seen crying. After Glenn's death, Heath called Glenn his friend.
At first, Heath shows a slight dislike towards him claiming he could turn out to be like Alexander Davidson. However, after Rick takes lead of the Alexandria Safe-Zone from Douglas, he defends Rick and his group against Nicholas when Nicholas shows signs of an uprising. Heath has seemed to integrate into Rick's inner circle. Participating in most meetings and being picked to go to The Kingdom. Overall, Heath has proven to be a loyal member of Rick's group.
Heath and Michonne seem to have a stable relationship. They haven't been seen to converse very much; however, in Issue 107, Michonne makes a move on Heath while he's on guard duty, under the impression that he and Denise were not on good terms. Heath tells her that if things don't work out between Denise and him, he'd go out with her. Heath politely rejects Michonne, trying not to hurt her feelings.
Heath challenged Nicholas' planned uprising against Rick. Although they've rarely been seen interacting since, it can be assumed that Nicholas and Heath have stabilized their relationship, as Heath justifies Nicholas' selfish attempt to get his life spared while being lined up together with him by Negan in Issue 114.
- Heath has compared Rick a few times to Alexander Davidson, the hated former leader of Alexandria Safe-Zone. He stated to Aaron and Douglas about Rick, "This guy has Davidson written all over him"  and, "he may turn out to be another Davidson".
- Heath has the highest number of appearances of all the Alexandria Safe-Zone citizens. He appears in 38 issues by Issue 114. He is also the character with the 15th most appearances.
- Heath is the only original member of the Alexandria scavenging group still alive.
