This would later come back to haunt him as shortly after, he was kicked out from his group.
Haunted by the death of his people and now kicked out from his group, Clyde's mental state became more unstable. During nights, he would have nightmares of his zombiefied brother attacking him.

A New Light
During a battle against the Moe People, Clyde sent out a small team of his group to directly fight them. While this direct attack did lead to the defeat of the Moe People, it also cost the lives of some of his members, including his brother.
These actions caused Danial and the rest to exile him and for the next two months, he traveled on the road with no place to stay. While traveling on a desert road, he collapsed from heat exhaustion but was saved by Aaron Scott and his group of wanderers.
Upon recovering the group traveled and encountered a hostile team of bandits. After fighting against them, the bandit's hostages later joined Clyde and Aaron. The leader of the hostages, Jessie informed them about Welton and it is from this point on the group travels there.
During the journey, the group encountered a couple of different situations involving interactions with other groups. Clyde's ability to persuade people however saved them from getting into fights. Aaron Scott took notice of this and saw that he was indeed a natural leader.
Clyde shares some characteristics with the Governor from the TV Series. He wears a eyepatch over his right eye, his aggressive combat style was also inspired by the character, and both are charismatic leaders.
