Could Adam be Season’s 2 Protagonist?

No, I’m not joking. The son of Campman, the guy who kidnapped Clementine and tried to murder Lee might be the next character we play for season 2. .

To be honest, I’m not crazy on the thought of playing a kid in this game, I would rather be playing an adult but then again TT did a wonderful job in their writing for Clementine. Even so, we really don’t know anything about him nor of his age beyond that his mother (could be overly protective too) thought he was too young to go hunting with his dad. To me, Adam might possibly be in his early teens in the 13 or 14 range, just strong and big enough to use a hunting rifle.

As for the setup, Campman said they were out looking for his son when Lee’s group took the food from their vehicle, so that places Adam is in the same area with Lee and the motel. So Adam might have his own run in with the St. Johns or even with that crazy lady in the woods before these characters meant their fates. He even might end up rescuing the crazy lady’s missing daughter or get captured by the bandits himself and is forced to help them like raiding Ben’s camp (probably with the choice to clean them out or overlook a few things so they won’t starve). Later, when the bandits attack the motor inn you could get to watch as Lee’s group flees in the RV while dodging hungry walkers as you try to escape as well.

If done right, it could be interesting. Especially if Adam finds Clementine and they’re the last two standing at the end. The best thing about the character Adam, he is connected to the last season because of his father. Which is better than introducing an entirely new character that we never heard about.

  • Remember that the stranger wanted to take Adam out for hunting, even when his wife said "he was too young". This gives me the impression that Adam was younger than a teen, and must have died alone out in the woods.

    Even if we're Adam, who will listen to a kid's choices in the group? I admit that it would be a nice change from season 1, but I don't think that Adam is even alive.
  • Maybe Adam will be the Clementine as we play another father figure who finds him in season 2? TBH, I'd probably prefer a different narrative device than the father figure for the next game, but you make a good theory about the possibilities.
  • He died, campman pretty much explained it. besides, I don't wanna play an ~8-year old
  • It'd be funny if Clementine joins a group he's a part of. Campman only said they lost him so he could have found his way to safety.

    I agree that using Adam is a mix bag of problems like you suggested but we need a character that is connected to the last season in someway. I still think that Adam could be in his early teens and "He was too young" could be the words of a very protective mother.
  • wouldn't mind playing as clemmy but changing to a completely new character will be hard to get used to. especially after witnessing what happened to Lee ;_;
  • His son is not in his early teens. Remember, Clem fit in his jacket. So that probably means he's around 8 or 9 years old.
  • No way that kid survived on his own.

    Damn... You're right. :(
