"Rafa? How- how is this possible?"
—Hector to his brother after his reanimation. (Translated From Spanish)[src]

Hector García is an original character in Telltale Games's The Walking Dead: Season Three. He is the uncle of David and Javier and younger brother of Salvador.

Pre-Apocalypse

Baltimore, Maryland

Little is known about Hector's life before the outbreak. At the onset, the whole family (minus Javier) gathered at Salvador's house to witness his passing. Hector comforted his sister-in-law over her husband's death, remaining by her side for most of the night.

Post-Apocalypse

Season 3

"Ties That Bind - Part 1"

Hector is first seen comforting his sister-in-law over her husband's death through the window when Javier arrives. He offers to take care of Salvador's body for her, but he is unable to get a signal over the phone. When Mariana walked toward the staircase with a cup, Hector asked if she was thirsty. She simply stated that she was going to refill Salvador's cup. Salvador's widow told her that she would not have to refill his cup any longer, but Mariana startlingly tells her that her grandfather was awake. Hector follows her upstairs to find his brother standing in the corner of his bedroom. After removing Mariana from the room, he approaches his seemingly alive brother, asking him how this was possible.

Suddenly, his reanimated brother attacks him, shoving him through a closet and biting him on the forearm. Javier and David appear to restrain Salvador, giving Hector time to escape. Mrs. García walks into the room, asking what was happening. David explains that Salvador had just attacked his brother. Heedless of Salvador's snapping jaws, she tries to comfort her husband, only to be bitten on the cheek in the process. Stunned, she backs away into the arms of Kate and Javier. Javier breaks a part of the bedframe as David is nearly overwhelmed by his father, then reluctantly strikes his father in the head as the children scream.

As the family leaves the house for the hospital, Hector looks at his arm in the back of the van, noticing a bite mark. Javier watches as Hector proceeds to cover the bite with his sleeve.

It is assumed that Hector died of the infection caused by the bite within the first few days of the apocalypse given how early he was bitten before the survivors were aware of the effects of a walker bite. It has not been confirmed if he was put down to prevent reanimation, however, it can be assumed that he turned.

Death

Killed By

Hector was bit by his reanimated brother. Since this took place at the beginning of the outbreak, he almost certainly died of the infection.

Telltale staff mentioned, Hector was still with them when they made their way back, and his story was the key reason that when we saw the family 3 months later, they were all sleeping within eyesight of each other, barricaded into a single room”, possibly meaning that his corpse is in the house and that either Kate or Javier had to kill him as a walker.

Relationships

Mrs. García

Hector and his sister-in-law's relationship was not much explored, but it can be assumed that they had a strong relationship that had endured for many years. Hector chose to be present at her house in the days before the passing of his brother, offering as much as he could for his family. When Mrs. García's husband and Hector's brother passes away in his bed, Hector is seen comforting her until Javier arrives. Hector remains near her throughout the night until Mariana suddenly announces that Salvador was awake. The adults all investigate, Mrs. García coming into Salvador's room after Hector was attacked by her husband. Hector is shocked when Salvador bites his wife, subsequently showing horror when Javier swung part of a bedframe at Salvador's head when he tried to bite David. In concern for the health of Mrs. García, Hector agrees with David that they needed to get her to the hospital, quickly grabbing his needed supplies and rushing to the van.

Hector was only saved from his brother by his two nephews, recovering from his attack quietly as he watched Salvador attack and bite his wife.
