Beyond the Sea
David Brooks was an architect who lived in Beaufort, NC before the dead started walking. He and his family made a harrowing escape from Beaufort. It took them several weeks to reach St. Jude’s By the Sea Lutheran Church. They were among the last survivors to reach the church. By the time they arrived, the Red Cross and military had already pulled out of the area. David is extremely protective of his family and does not trust Samantha Hickman. He believes her to be infected.
David’s family consists of his wife Jean, and his sons, Peter (age 8) and Greg (age 12).
After their encounter at the church, he does not like or trust Bryce Winters and feels that he will get them all killed. This is why he leaves the group at Rescue Station LeJeune.
