OVERRUN FELL BACK TO BUILDING INTERIOR--AWAITING EVAC
— Waters in the "Field Ops Log"
Waters is a character who appears in The Last of Us. He was a soldier of the U.S. Military in the Boston area, and was the officer in charge of a patrol which included Private Atwater, Private Shah, Private Coolidge, and several other soldiers.
Background & Early LifeEdit
Not much is known about Waters' background or early life except that he was a soldier in the U.S. Army.
In July of 2033, he was the officer in charge of a patrol with several soldiers, including Privates Atwater, Shah, and Coolidge on the outskirts of the Boston area. Private Atwater saw and/or heard a Stalker near a collapsed office building. The patrol went to investigate and were soon attacked by multiple Infected. Atwater, Shah and Coolidge were killed, leaving him to retreat into the Goldstone Building.
While awaiting evac, Waters and the remainder of his squad were killed, though at least two soldiers turned into Runners. It is presumed that Waters bled out and died or, judging by the spent shell casings around his corpse, was mauled by infected while trying to defend himself.
Events of The Last of Us Edit
In The Last of Us, Waters' corpse can be seen in the Goldstone Building, along with the "Field Ops Log" artifact, in the chapter "The Outskirts". His log and corpse are found by Joel, Ellie and Tess, Joel remarking "looks like these guys died waiting for backup".
