Lieutenant Welles is a U.S. military pilot for the National Guard service. He is seen piloting a helicopter with other National Guard members onboard.
Welles was first seen piloting a helicopter passengered by Sean and Franklin. During mid-flight, he lost control of the helicopter and it crashed, killing his two passengers and severely wounding him. The Governor arrived at the scene, and with his crew, they dragged him out of the wreckage and brought him, along with Andrea and Michonne, to Woodbury. He was then placed in a hospital bed and put into the care of Dr. Stevens, whilst The Governor questioned him about where he came from and where his group was located. Welles informed The Governor about how his encampment had become overrun with walkers when members of the group panicked and opened the barriers, after which he and his troops escaped. Their convoy was blocked by a jammed highway (which may have been the same highway that prevented Rick's group from reaching Fort Benning and detoured them to Hershel's farm). Welles, Sean, and Franklin took the helicopter out to scope the landscape ahead, but the helicopter crashed, killing Sean and Franklin. Welles revealed to The Governor the location of his convoy after being assured by The Governor that they would be rescued and brought to Woodbury, but was betrayed and later killed by one of The Governor's men, his head being placed in a fish tank along with several other peoples' decapitated heads. After this, The Governor convinced everyone that Welles didn't survive from his wounds despite the efforts of Dr. Stevens and was put down by Merle.
Welles was mentioned by The Governor, notifying Michonne that Welles didn't survive. He lied that Dr. Stevens had attempted to revive him but he didn't make it, so Merle Dixon shot him in the head, and they later cremated him. It is known that The Governor was lying.
Welles was amongst the heads that Michonne discovered in The Governor's fish tanks. Noticing the zombified Welles, Michonne realized what kind of man The Governor was. Later, Andrea noticed the fish tanks and it is unknown whether or not she noticed that the head of Welles was part of the collection.
