Not much is known about Ezra before the outbreak, except that he was a resident of Lincoln along with his partner Rachel. While the military did force him to evacuate, he waited for her as long as he could, packed up some of their things, and left a note telling her to find him in the Quarantine Zone.
At some point, Ezra wrote a note to Rachel, later found by Joel and Ellie. Ellie remarked how she hoped they found each other though Joel remained apathetic regarding their issues.
- Ezra means "Help" in Hebrew.
