"I want to go North, Ingrid wants to go South..." — Anders to Sean Diaz in "Wastelands"

Anders is a character in Life is Strange 2. He travels with his partner, Ingrid. During Episode 3, he is met by Sean and Daniel Diaz at a campsite in Humboldt County, California.




Anders has blue eyes, shoulder-length blonde hair, a medium-length beard and mustache. He wears a grey quarter-zip pullover with a teal "SASTRUGI" logo over a light blue shirt, dirty olive trousers, and olive hiking boots, as well as a navy bandanna wrapped around his head.


Anders and Ingrid are from Malmö, Sweden. In order to raise enough money for their trip to North America, Ingrid worked for three years in a coffee shop.[1] After running out of money mid-trip, Anders and Ingrid were invited to work on an illegal cannabis plantation in order to earn enough money to travel once more. While Ingrid wants to use the money to visit Texas, Anders insists on using it to go north towards Canada instead.[2]

Episode Three - "Wastelands"

On the ride to the pot farm, Anders and Ingrid can be heard arguing over whether he remembered to lock the tent. At the farm, Anders is sent to clean up the mess after the storm with Penny, Finn, and Jacob while the rest trim weed buds.

After returning to the camp at sunset, Sean can find Hannah peeling potatoes by the campfire while arguing with Anders and Ingrid over whether homeless people should be held responsible for the state of the environment. If Sean joins Hannah in peeling potatoes before they finish, he can try and help back either side of the argument.

During the party at night, Sean can overhear Ingrid asking Cassidy for advice on whether or not to break up with Anders. He can choose to speak with Anders and Penny, the former of whom is heavily drunk. If he asks where they're planning on going, Anders reveals that he and Ingrid disagree on whether they should head north or south.



  • Hannah - While peeling potatoes, Hannah can be seen disagreeing with the couple over them placing the blame on homeless people for the state of the environment, during which she points out their own use of non eco-friendly services such as constant air travel. After Ingrid concedes and Anders asks whether she hates them, Hannah reassures the couple that "[they'd] know if [she] hated [them]".


  • Ingrid - Though they have been together for a significant amount of time[3], Anders and Ingrid's relationship shows some signs of strain. They can be heard having an argument over who should have locked their tent on Big Joe's truck, Anders mentions they they're having a conflict over where they should travel next,[2], and Ingrid shows irritation towards Anders' constant cannabis smoking[4][5]. During the going-away party, Ingrid can be overheard speaking with Cassidy about breaking up with Anders due to his constant stubbornness.
