Chris is a male Golden Retriever born December 5, 2010
and last adopted January 28, 2012.
He is 9 years and 3 months old.
Chris, also known as Christopher, is one of the eight main protagonists and a playable character in Until Dawn. Chris, along with Hannah, is one of the two members of the group that wears glasses. He has dark blonde hair worn in a fauxhawk style and wears a layered light brown jacket over a green commando-style sweater.
Described as methodical, protective, and humorous, Chris’s three highest base traits are charitable, funny, and curious. He is also the calmest out of the survivors. He’s very affable, and has a witty sense of humor which can be off putting to his friends. He’s analytical, not one to believe in the occult and isn’t easily scared. Chris is also a lover of gadgets, and can’t go long without looking at his phone screen. He dreams of being an app designer, loves technology and can’t stand a place without Internet access. Chris spends a lot of time with Ashley. They’re very close friends, but Chris would like her to be even closer.
One Year Ago
Once they arrive at the top, Chris and Sam meet up with Jessica and Chris jokingly states that, had been stuck in there for much longer, he would have chewed off his own leg, much to Sam’s disgust. He then snags the letter Jessica is holding, and depending on whether or not Sam snooped on him, he can remark on how he is just doing what Sam taught him to. He reveals that Jessica is in a relationship with Mike, the class president, before teasing her to grab it back off him. Before leaving with Sam to head to the lodge, Jessica states that she wants to stay behind to greet anybody else that comes up, and Chris makes one last comment on how she is most likely just waiting for Mike.
Chapter three starts off with Chris, Josh and Ashley preparing for the seance. He explains how the seance works, and ultimately treats it as a joke, much to Josh and Ashley’s dismay. He hands the role of medium over to Ashley, given that she hasn’t been in a seance before. They eventually find out that they are communicating with one of Josh’s dead sisters, and it leads them to believe that proof of their disappearance is hidden somewhere in the library. The pointer they have then flies off of the board, and Josh goes into a fit of panic, trying not to believe what he just saw. He then believes that Chris and Ashley are playing with him, and storms off in anger.
Shortly after comprehending what had just happened, Chris and Ashley decide to go and investigate the library, to which they find a secret room hidden behind one of the bookcases. Chris goes inside to look around after Ashley chickens out, and finds a picture of the twins with a disturbing message scrawled on the back. They agree that they should bring this to Josh’s attention, and Chris starts to piece together that there might be a killer hiding in the area. Suddenly, they hear Josh screaming from the kitchen and run to his aid, but this only leads to Ashley being grabbed and knocked out. Chris slams the door in and dazes himself, leaving him open to an attack from The Psycho, knocking him out too.
Chris wakes up on the kitchen floor with a large bruise on his forehead, and discovers that Ashley and Josh are missing. He searches the lodge for clues as to where she might be, which leads him outside to a large shed where he finds Ashley and Josh tied up to a wall with a saw blade in front of them. The Psycho starts talking to them, and instructs Chris to pull the lever in the direction of the person he wants to save. Despite how he chooses, it will always turn in Josh’s direction, killing him. He is then allowed inside to untie Ashley, telling her not to look at Josh’s corpse. Once back outside, they meet up with Emily and Matt, informing them of what happened. Emily suggests that Ashley and Chris look for Sam back at the lodge while she and Matt look for help.
Chris and Ashley discover in the lodge that Sam is missing, and head down into the basement to search for her. During this, they reflect on Hannah’s disappearance. After finding either an unconscious Sam or a dummy dressed in her clothes, The Psycho sneaks up on Chris and knocks him out with gas. He awakens to find himself and Ashley strapped to a table with a gun in front of him. Saws activate and slowly descend on the pair, and The Psycho tells Chris that he must make the decision of either shooting himself or Ashley, stating that whoever lives gets to be free. Depending on his relationship with Ashley, she will either beg him to kill her to save himself, or plead for him to spare her life. He also has the option of not firing the gun at all.
It is discovered that the gun Chris was given only had blanks in it, and did not pose any danger to himself or Ashley. The sawblades stop descending before they reach the pair. As Mike, Sam and The Psycho all show up in a big confrontation, The Psycho reveals his true identity. It is revealed that Josh has played one massive revenge prank on them as payback for their prank on Hannah. After Sam and Mike release Ashley and Chris, Mike knocks Josh out and binds him due to him thinking Josh was also responsible for Jessica’s death. Mike and Chris escort Josh outdoors to the shed, despite his protests. Chris is furious because Josh punched Ashley in her face when she stabbed him with a pair of scissors to protect herself, and punches him in the face on the way. After they bind him to a support pillar, Chris has the option to knock him out or disarm Mike when he points the gun at him. Mike tells Chris to return to the lodge to check on everyone else, while Mike guards Josh for the night.
We see Chris again when either Emily or The Stranger shows up at the cabin. The Stranger informs the group about the Wendigo curse, and Chris starts to get worried after Mike comes back to the lodge and leaves Josh all alone in the shed. Even though Josh put them in danger, he still feels obliged to find him because he is his best friend, so he helps The Stranger locate Josh. Depending on your choices, Ashley may kiss Chris before he leaves. When they arrive at the shed, they discover that Josh is missing, and quickly decide to return to the lodge. However, they are ambushed by Wendigos. Regardless of how well or badly the player does here, The Stranger will always be killed. If successful in all QTEs (a failure results in Chris’ violent demise), he’ll run back to the lodge for shelter. If Ashley and Chris are on good terms, or at least friends, she’ll let him in and save him. If not, because you chose to shoot her earlier and she was begging for you not to, she’ll back away slowly from the door and Chris will be killed.
If he survives, he will explain that The Stranger was killed by the Wendigo, and will witness the hysteria that ensues when it is discovered that Emily was bitten. He takes a cautious stance in the debate, stating that he “does not want to see [what the Wendigos do] again.”
If he has survived this long, he will make an appearance alongside the other survivors that have also made it in the final cabin escape scene. If Chris survives, he will appear in the police interviews in the end credits. When questioned on the nature of the Stranger and if any of his friends could have killed him, he steadfastly defends him, stating that the Stranger saved his life.
