"I've known Dipper and Mabel, and meeting with them again was the greatest day I've had in this world. Do you really think I would want to eat them?! (...) If you still don't believe me, the door is open. You can shoot me, and just go."
—Soos to Kenny, seeking redemption.[src]

Soos Ramirez is a main character first encountered in Chapter 11 of the A New Day series. Though sometimes aloof and oblivious, Soos is kindhearted and caring, and serious when necessary. After the outbreak occurred, he found himself seeking help for his friends stuck in the crashed bus, where he was nearly devoured by walkers. However, he was saved by a man named Andrew St. John, where he was taken to their dairy and stayed there for three months, working with them to survive, unaware of his true actions. After the dairy incident, he was allowed to join Lee Everett's group and was reunited with his friends.


Gravity Falls, Oregon

Prior to the outbreak, Soos lived in Gravity Falls, Oregon, with his grandmother. He worked at the Mystery Shack as a handyman and frequently was the one who repaired piping or technology.


A New Day

"Act II - Starved For Help"

Soos first appears alongside the St. John brothers and is one of the key factors towards the group trusting the St. Johns, due to his relationship with Dipper and Mabel Pines. After explaining how he survived for three months to Dipper and Mabel, he returns to the farm with the twins. He is not present when Lee, Mark, and Mabel go to check the electric fence, while Dipper stays behind.

He is later present at dinner, where he is shocked to find out he had been working for a group of cannibals the entire time. In retaliation, Soos lets the group out of the meat locker and unleashes brutality on the St. John family, killing all three and helping the group escape. Soos then joins up with the group, having achieved redemption.

"Act III - Long Road Ahead"

Soos breifly appears at the start of the act, being on gate duty at the motel. He keeps watch over the gate before being taken hostage by the bandits. After he is saved by Lee Everett, he helps take down the incoming bandits before hopping into the RV to escape the motel. Afterwards, while caught up in a heated argument on the RV, the vehicle hits a walker and pulls over. Kenny decides to deal with the walker while the group argues on the side of the road, Soos panicking and unsure of what to do due to accusations flying around. In the end, Dipper stands up for him and his actions, and while Soos calms down a bit to thank him, he is shot in the head mid-sentence by Lilly.

Killed By

After the RV pulls over, Lilly begins to interrogate both Soos and Ben, thinking they are both at fault for the bandit raid at the motor inn. Soos panics and is unable to recompose himself before Dipper sticks up for him, saying Soos is trustworthy and that it couldn't have been him or Ben. After telling off Lilly, Dipper is thanked by a now slightly calmed Soos, who is abruptly shot mid-sentence in the side of the head by Lilly.
