Doug is among the first eight survivors recruited by the Player. He is injured when introduced and the player must choose to get supplies for him or not. Doug has a abrasive personality, and is rather difficult to get along with. He brings the idea for a watchtower to the player, and accuses the player of being a bad leader if you don't agree with him. It's also possible that Doug can be a staunch ally if you can get on his good side.
