Henry is a survivor traveling through Pittsburgh in search of supplies with his kid brother Sam. Both brothers come from the quarantine zone of Hartford, striking out to fend for themselves once the military abandoned their old home.
He is fiercely protective of his brother, doing everything he can to ensure Sam's survival, even at the cost of his own life or the lives of others.
Henry was only five years old when the outbreak began. His strongest memories of the pre-apocalypse are of the smells of barbecues in the backyard.
