Biography[edit | edit source]
During the Original Outbreak of the Rage Virus, Private Bell was sent to cover the Forty-Second Blockade protecting Manchester, defending it against repeated Infected attacks. However, the Infected eventually overran the blockade and entered the city, killing all the soldiers at the blockade except for Major Henry West and nine of his men, including Bell.
The surviving soldiers resolved to escape to the Worsley House in the forest, which they fortified against attack with mines, tripwires, barbed wire and barricades. On Day 23 of the outbreak, West made a promise to his men that any female survivors they found would be forced into sexual slavery.
Thirty-one days into the outbreak, Jim, Selena and Hannah arrived at the Worsley House and were taken in by Major West and his men. Two nights later, when the infected Mailer escaped and went on a rampage in the Worsley House, Bell ran out of ammunition and hid in the mansion's disused nursery from the rampant Infected.
When Jim found Bell, the latter screamed frantically at him that he had no bullets and begged Jim not to leave him. Just as Jim escaped through the nursery's window, the infected Mailer and Clifton broke into the nursery and brutally mauled the defenseless Bell to death.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Bell was somewhat soft-spoken and optimistic compared to the other soldiers, and expressed a glass-half-full attitude concerning Major West's intent to rebuild society, for which he seemed to be something of an odd one out. Like most of West's surviving men, Bell did not disagree with Major West's plan to force the female survivors they rescued into sexual slavery. However, when Selena was being sadistically stripped, Bell merely stood aside in the room and watched, neither opposing nor cheering the action openly. He appeared to occupy a low position on the privates' pecking order in spite of his personality, though not nearly as low as Jones. After running out of ammunition, Bell chose to cower in the Worsley House's nursery, and pleaded to Jim for his life as the latter left him to die.
