Nothing is known about Wade's life before or as the outbreak began.
Wade is the leader of the search party hunting for Dwight, Sherry and Tina. While looking for them, Cam, a member of his party, is distracted by Daryl and gets bitten on the forearm by a walker. Wade then amputates Cam's arm and takes him away.
Wade has not been seen since previous skirmishes against the Saviors, up until the battle in Alexandria between the survivors and the Saviors and their Scavenger allies, leaving his fate unknown.
All Out War
Since the Militia started its assaults on the Sanctuary and the surrounding Savior outposts, more than 400 Saviors have been killed. Due to the sheer amount of Saviors killed in the war, it is possible Wade was among the casualties. However, his fate remains unknown. If he survived the final battle in Wrath, then he presumably surrendered to the Militia and returned to the Sanctuary in peace.
This list shows the victims Wade has killed:
- Numerous counts of zombies and unnamed people
- Oddly, his face is never seen in any shot, despite his on-screen presence.
