"It'll be fine, Daniel. There's nothing we can't do... as long as we're together."

— Sean to Daniel in "Roads"


Sean Eduardo Diaz (born August 15, 2000) is the playable protagonist of Life is Strange 2 and a minor character in The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit.

After a tragic incident results in the deaths of his father, Esteban Diaz, and the police officer who took his life, Sean is forced to run away from his home in Seattle with his brother, Daniel Diaz. In fear of the police, he intends to reach their father's hometown of Puerto Lobos, Mexico, all while attempting to conceal the emergence of Daniel's mysterious supernatural power.

Personality

Sean is described as "creative, sensitive and protective" in official marketing material.[1]

Sean's creative side is shown by making drawings in a sketchbook his father had purchased, who seems to have encouraged Sean to draw.

His protective side is shown when Daniel is getting harassed by their neighbor, Brett Foster, for spilling zombie blood on his shirt. Sean can defend his little brother and attacks their neighbor for cruelly insulting them. After he runs away from home with Daniel, he becomes more protective of him on their journey to Puerto Lobos.

Appearance

During "Roads", Sean has short, cropped dark brown hair and wears a maroon beanie with a yellow logo on its rim (while walking home from school). He wears a grayish-blue zipper pocket hoodie with a "WOLF SQUAD" logo over a white T-shirt, coupling this with grey khakis and a reddish-brown belt with its strap hanging out from underneath his hoodie. On his feet, he wears grey running shoes with blue laces and green markings.

By "Rules", and during The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit, Sean's hair has noticeably grown - his formerly short bangs now reaching his mid-forehead. While in the Willamette National Forest, he wears a brown fleece-lined denim jacket over his hoodie. During Captain Spirit, he wears a light orange quarter-zip pullover over a tan zip-up hoodie. His khakis have begun to develop holes at the mid-thighs and kneecaps, and he now wears sturdy brown hiking boots. After spending some time at his grandparents' house, there is a blue patch sewed onto his pants.

Sean's recursive t-shirt graphic in Episode 3.

During the opening flashback in "Wastelands", Sean wears a grey t-shirt with a logo reading "NYC-UK" alongside orange boxers and white socks. In the present day, Sean's hair has grown further, his bangs now almost touching his eyebrows; optionally, Sean can have his hair cut by Finn, resulting in a mohawk. He still wears his "WOLF SQUAD" hoodie, which shows several signs of wear; multiple holes have developed in the fabric, the logo has several cracks, and the collar has been ripped and stitched back together. A patch depicting what appears to be the Sigil of Baphomet is sewn onto his right shoulder. His grey khakis now have more patches, including one that reads "SPACE FUCKUPS" on his back pocket and another depicting a skull embedded with knives. While in his tent, Sean wears a grey graphic t-shirt, green boxers depicting tadpoles and a frog alongside the word "HI!", and dirty white socks. Optionally, Sean can get a tattoo of a wolf or three marijuana plants done on his right arm by Cassidy.

During "Faith", Sean's hair has been shaved to a buzzcut, as well as having a bandage over his damaged eye that left him half-blind. During his time in Sacred Hope Hospital, Sean wears green hospital garbs and white socks. When he escapes the hospital, Sean wears his recovered clothes. While walking to Havens' Point, Sean has his hoodie in his backpack to show his grey graphic t-shirt, as well as being partly sunburnt. After being picked up by Karen and having a shower, Sean wears his khakis with a clean white t-shirt and red boxers with blue whales on them. While infiltrating the church, Sean puts his hoodie back on, as well as wearing a black eyepatch provided by his mother. He also wears a multicolored bracelet on his right wrist.

During "Wolves", Sean's hair has grown back to a stage that is slightly shorter than in the episode "Rules", but still longer than in the episode "Roads". He briefly does not wear his signature hoodie in favor of a dark grey and brownish baseball T-shirt and sports a grey bandana with light brown detailing hanging loosely around his neck to mid-torso area, but still retains his patched up grey khakis and hiking boots.

Sean has the option of decorating his backpack with souvenirs he finds along his journey. Throughout most of "Roads", Sean wears a grey school bag which is adorned with patches displaying a mosquito, the word "NSFW" appearing as if on fire, and a smiling doodle. At the beach, Brody Holloway gives Sean a faded green-and-red hiking backpack which features an "ULTRA-D" logo, the phrase "All who wander are not lost", and several hobo signs are written in black marker.[note 1]

Hair

Throughout the game, Sean's hair grows in length, and it can also be optionally cut by Finn in Episode 3 (styled with a mohawk). In Episode 4, Sean's hair has been shaved off for his stay in hospital. In Episode 5, his hair grows back after it was shaved in Episode 4.

Background

Sean Diaz was born on August 15, 2000 to Esteban Diaz and Karen Reynolds. Prior to his parents' separation, Sean used to visit his maternal grandparents, Claire and Stephen Reynolds, at their home in Beaver Creek, where he once broke a vase when he was roughly six years old[2]. In 2006, Sean and his parents moved to a new home at 1452 Lewis Avenue, Seattle.[3] Sometime between 2006 and 2007, Sean's parents had a second child, whom they decided to name Daniel. Around a year later, Karen decided to cut ties with her husband and family after deciding she didn't want and wasn't meant to settle down and be a mother, leaving Esteban to raise their sons alone.

As a family, Sean, Daniel, and their father used to go on outdoor expeditions including hiking trips, skiing at Mt. Baker, and kayaking at Wenatchee River. When they were younger, Sean and Daniel used to have a babysitter named Andrew, whom they mutually disliked. At some point when he was 13, Sean once broke his leg.

Sean is childhood friends with Ellery Winchell, whom he used to play with robot toys together as kids. While attending Peacock High School, Sean joined the track team with Ellery. The two share a mutual love for reading; over the summer of 2016, Ellery recommended Sean a novel entitled Chronicles of the Basilisk - Vol V: Siege Upon Moorkorn by Ariana Simard, which Sean eventually got around to reading and enjoyed.

During the same summer, Sean found a job at a local Z-Mart Superstore as a sales assistant; in his initial application, he mentioned that he had experience working customer service at Esteban's garage since he was 13. He took classes with his best friend, Lyla Park, whom he regularly joked, skated, and attended parties with, one of which resulted in his first hangover. He and Lyla also participated in gaming sessions with mutual friends Adam Barnes and Eric. Near the start of his junior year, Sean developed a crush on one of his classmates, Jenn Murphy, whom he began texting semi-regularly after Lyla introduced the two.

Captain Spirit

Sean and Daniel are seen briefly in the ending of the game, standing on the other side of the fence. The brothers wave hello to Chris Eriksen after he gets up from the ground.

Episode One - "Roads"

Sean is first seen coming out of a school bus while simultaneously writing SMS messages on his phone. Moments later, he is interrupted by his best friend, Lyla Park, asking if he heard back from Jenn Murphy yet. Lyla then takes Sean's phone and reads his last message to Jenn aloud, after which she tries to play matchmaker by sending Jenn a text on Sean's behalf. The two start walking down the street and chat about the upcoming party, which Sean is somewhat reluctant to attend. He then gets a message from his father asking whether he will be home after school and expresses irritation at being treated like a kid. Sean is very happy to learn that Jenn is looking forward to seeing him and Lyla at the party and asks Lyla about what he should wear. They pass Sean's neighbor, Brett, and Lyla exchanges insults with him. After Lyla calls Brett an "asshole," Sean remarks that his neighbor is "always true to himself." They enter Sean's yard, and he tells Lyla to be careful after she takes out a pack of cigarettes, since his father busted him in the past. Lyla offers a cigarette to Sean, which he can accept or refuse.

Take one

Sean remarks that it's okay to smoke on a Friday and takes a few puffs, then blames Lyla for making him smoke. They agree to make sure Sean doesn't smoke any weed tonight.

Refuse

Sean says that track stars aren't supposed to smoke and that he'll get another chance at the party. Lyla says she will remember this.

Lyla then proceeds to write a "party list" on Sean's left hand. Shortly after she is done, a plane flies above them, and Lyla ponders what will happen to them after graduation. She asks Sean whether they will stay best friends. Sean can reply that they will be friends no matter what and that distance can't tear them apart, or he can joke that being friends is not possible due to him being a Mexican. Either way, Lyla says that it's getting late and hugs Sean before leaving to get ready for the party. They arrange to talk on Skype once Sean is packed.

Sean enters the house and wants to start packing for the party but is interrupted by Esteban and Daniel needing a "judge." Daniel starts asking Sean questions about Lyla, but the older brother quickly brushes him off. Then a "court session" commences where Sean can give the last Chock-O-Crisp to Daniel or Esteban (or take it for himself). If Sean gives the Chock-O-Crisp to his father, Esteban will give the bar to Daniel instead. After they both go on their way, Sean is free to walk around the house and get the necessary items. After grabbing a drink and a snack upstairs, he goes to the garage to ask his dad for money. Esteban asks Sean to give him a 16mm wrench and compliments his son if he's quick enough. They have a short conversation before Sean brings up the money topic. Esteban asks him to say if he will spend the money on alcohol and weed. If he confesses, Esteban will appreciate it and gives Sean $40; otherwise, Sean will get $20. As Sean is about to go upstairs again, Esteban offers him a hug, which he can accept or decline.

Next, Sean enters his room and calls Lyla on Skype. They talk about the upcoming party and how Sean is going to behave with Jenn. Suddenly, Daniel runs into the room and shows Sean the fake blood he made using corn syrup and coloring. Daniel and Lyla wave hello to each other before Sean drags him out of the room, much to Lyla's disappointment. Sean can apologize or say that Daniel isn't always cute. A few seconds later, Lyla tells Sean that Jenn just posted a picture of herself on her wall. If Sean decides to check it, he will be surprised; he can optionally comment on it with "<3" or "LOL."

They continue talking for a while until Sean notices something outside and runs into the yard to see Brett arguing with Daniel over getting fake blood on his shirt. Sean can confront Brett or question Daniel; regardless of the choice, Brett throws enough insults at Sean to make him lose his temper and hit Brett in the face. A fight breaks out, during which Brett falls on his back, and Sean and Daniel rush to check his condition. At this moment, a police officer arrives and tells the brothers to lie on the ground, pointing a gun at them. Esteban runs out and tries to deescalate the situation, but the officer accidentally pulls the trigger, killing Esteban. Daniel cries out and Sean goes unconscious for a while; after regaining consciousness, he looks around the street to find it filled in debris and his father and the police officer having been killed. He picks Daniel up, grabs his backpack and runs away from the approaching sound of police sirens.

Two weeks later, the brothers are still traveling, with Daniel unaware of Esteban's death. After reaching Mount Rainer National Park, Sean and Daniel explore the park and have the option of eating berries and playing hide and seek. After climbing over a log and down a high ledge, they reach a river where they set up camp. Later at night, Daniel has a bad dream, leading Sean to comfort him before going back to sleep. The next day, they reach Bear Station where Sean can buy or steal items, play a claw game, beg a family for food, and take leftovers from a trash can once the family has left. They also meet Brody Holloway. While sitting outside to eat, they are confronted by the store's owner, Hank Stamper, who captures Sean as Daniel flees. Sean finds himself tied to a pipe in Hank's office, with Hank, aware of the incident from Seattle, intending to turn him over to the police. If Sean angers Hank, he will kick Sean in the face. Daniel helps Sean escape but finds the store wrecked after retrieving his things and following Daniel out of the office. Sean has the option to attack Hank and steal a tent. They escape the station with Brody's help. While talking to Brody, Sean learns that Daniel stole the puppy from the store and has named it Mushroom. While stopping at Otter Point, which is close to Arcadia Bay, Brody reveals that he knows of the Seattle incident but has no intention of turning him and Daniel in before heading to the Three Seals Motel. 

While at the hotel, Sean plays fetch with Daniel and Mushroom as Brody rents a room for them and gives them some money to help them. He also tells Sean to get rid of his cell phone to reduce his chances of getting caught. As they head to their room, they can optionally hear a couple having sex in another room. Sean can tell this to Daniel or keep quiet. While watching Hot Dawg Man in their room, Sean has the option of starting a bath for Daniel before heading out to the balcony where he can choose to call Lyla. If he does, he will have a tearful conversation with her before throwing the phone into the ocean. Sean can then tell the truth to Daniel about Esteban's death or get a soda before doing so. Either way, Daniel will get angry and lose control of his powers, forcing Sean to calm him down before he destroys the motel, with Sean either agreeing to never lie to Daniel again or refusing.

The following day, Sean and Daniel are seen onboard a bus. Sean tells a story that reflects their situation before he and Daniel fall asleep as the bus travels onwards.

Episode Two - "Rules"

The following winter, Sean has been testing and helping Daniel control his telekinetic abilities. Despite making progress with Daniel and managing to survive the past few weeks in an abandoned house in the woods, Sean comes to realize that Daniel is very ill and needs help. Deciding to make their way to their estranged maternal grandparent's home, Sean and Daniel prepare for the journey. The morning they decide to leave, however, Mushroom is killed by a wildcat.

Sean doesn't intervene and Daniel kills the wildcat with his powers. Sean, while understanding, is surprised by this and Daniel is scared by his own power. The brothers manage to recover Mushroom's corpse and are able to give Mushroom a proper burial.

Though upset, Sean prevents Daniel from killing the wildcat with his powers. The wildcat escapes with Mushroom's corpse, and the brothers are unable to give Mushroom a proper burial.

Once they arrive at their grandparent's home, Daniel is given medicine to help with his illness and the brothers are temporarily taken in. As Christmas approaches, Daniel recuperates and the brothers learn more about their absentee mother's family. While staying with their grandparents, Claire asks that they don't go into their mother's old bedroom or mention her at all. Their grandparents also ask that the brothers keep a low profile and don't venture out further than the backyard.

After Claire informs Sean that there are some toys in the back shed, Sean goes to ask his grandfather Stephen for the key. Stephen asks to speak privately with him and admits to Sean that he has noticed an invisible force surrounding Daniel.

Sean admits that Daniel has powers. Stephen tries to cope with this confirmation and find a way to help Daniel. Sean, worried they'd be separated, is hesitant to contact a doctor or anyone else about Daniel's gift. Stephen will agree that Sean being there for Daniel is what is most important. He also asks that Sean not mention anything about this to the religious Claire.

Sean denies noticing anything unusual about Daniel and Stephen will more or less drop it. He does, however, ask that Sean not mention anything about this to the religious Claire.

Afterwards, Stephen will give Sean the shed key. Sean and Daniel go outside but are unable to unlock the shed, as the lock is frozen. Meanwhile, Daniel sees neighbor Chris Eriksen climbing up his treehouse in tears. One of the boards leading up to the treehouse breaks and Daniel uses his powers to save Chris from getting hurt; however, Chris, astounded, is under the impression that he saved himself with his own superpower. Chris then introduces himself to the brothers. Daniel and Chris hit it off immediately, but their interaction is cut short after Chris' father takes him back inside.

The next day, Sean finds out that Daniel has gone to Chris' house and goes to find him. He also learns that Claire and Stephen had left for church and won't be back until later. Sean has the option to use Stephen's laptop or use the phone to call Lyla. If he called her in Episode 1, he will learn that she is on medication due to having to lie to the police after being interrogated for hours. If Sean didn't call her, then her mother will pick up the phone instead. Sean can then lie to her or tell her who he is, which will lead her to threaten to call the police. Once at Chris' house, he finds Daniel and Chris playing with Chris' toys and Daniel's powers. Sean can tell the truth to Chris or just keep quiet. The brothers then head to a Christmas Market with Chris and Charles to buy a Christmas tree. While there, they meet Cassidy and Finn and even have the option to prank Nick due to him being very antagonistic towards the hippies. Sean then either buys a gift or steals one from a donation box before heading home. The two then decide to break into Karen's room, either by finding the key in the bathroom or by using Daniel's powers to break the lock, in hopes of finding out their mother's whereabouts. Claire and Stephen catch them, leading to an argument between them until Stephen gets his legs caught under a fallen shelf. They go to help him, either with Daniel's powers or by lifting together. Following this, a cop shows up, having located the brothers here due to someone seeing them at the market, Sean using Stephen's laptop, or using the phone to call Lyla. Claire and Stephen help the brothers escape, either with Chris helping them as well or getting hurt. After escaping, Sean exchanges gifts with Daniel and if he isn't too upset, he will give Sean a drawing. The two then board a train and leave Beaver Creek. 

Episode Three - "Wastelands"

The episode opens with a flashback to three months before Esteban's death, where Sean relaxes in his room while listening to "On Melancholy Hill" by Gorillaz through his earbuds. Daniel sneaks into his room and steals a watch, but is caught in the act by Sean and runs away. After finding him in Esteban's room and reprimanding him, Daniel falls back into a bookshelf, breaking Esteban's "Garage of the Year" trophy. Esteban comes out of the garage and scolds the pair for causing trouble. He sends them both to their room, where he talks to Sean about Daniel. Before leaving for work once more, he tells Sean to apologize to Daniel, stating that they will go to the movies that night if they behaved. Sean makes up with Daniel, letting him keep his watch. A happy Daniel states that he will keep the watch forever.

Between the events of Episode 2 and this episode, it is revealed in Sean's journal that on December 17th, 2016, both he and Daniel jumped off the boxcar train in Northern California where they walked seemingly forever until they reached a small town before resorting to looking in a dumpster for food. Here, they met a "weird guy" who said they could get work on a local farm, even if they didn't have any ID. Sean knew why but felt they had no choice but to take the offer, also feeling glad of the shelter. The people on the farm were good as they didn't ask questions. Daniel liked the place, and Sean was also able to work on his own without being around Daniel 24/7. An illustration suggests Sean feels like just another brick in the wall. Other tasks he performed for pay were putting up fences and "nailing shit," which he describes as "not bad, just boring."

New Year 2017 comes around, and everybody else is partying, but not Sean and Daniel. An illustration suggests they spent the New Year watching the celebrations on TV next to an older, scruffier male on the farm - perhaps the owner. Shortly after this, they got kicked off the farm and were only paid half of what they worked for. The man they were working for told them to call the police or get lost, so they left the area.

Two months after escaping Beaver Creek and three months after running from Seattle, Sean and Daniel met up with Cassidy and Finn and made friends with their own, including Hannah, Penny, Jacob, Ingrid, and Anders, while working for Merrill at his cannabis farm.

Sean wakes up from his tent and discovers that Daniel is gone. He exits and sees a topless Hannah going to the showers. After making coffee, he then has a conversation with everyone nearby and even has the option to make more coffee. Sean finds Daniel target practicing with Finn, who then invites Sean to try. If Sean succeeds in hitting the center, Daniel will make him miss his second shot. After Finn leaves, Sean speaks with Daniel, leading to an argument that causes Daniel to throw Sean backwards. He and the others then board Big Joe's truck to the farm. While there, he sees Big Joe bothering Cassidy due to her being sleepy and has the option to defend her. After Merrill gives everyone assignment, Sean learns from him that he has a daughter that he never got to see and warns him that he'll be sorry if he and Daniel ever cause any trouble. While trimming weeds, Sean chats with Daniel, Ingrid, Cassidy, and Hannah. After their shift ends, they are returned to camp where Finn shares his backstory to Sean. Sean then has the option of talking to some of the drifters and helping Daniel wash dishes before moving some water tanks. Oce that's done, he takes Daniel to the lake to train him. Aware that the others might see them, he asks Daniel to move a log, who then nearly drops it on Sean as a prank. After training him, they get into another argument, leading Daniel to lift a stump out of the river before Sean convinces him to stop. They then return to camp. Later that night, Sean speaks with everyone around the campfire, who all share their backstories. Sean can also smoke, which will make the screen blurry. Afterwards, he can either go to sleep or get a haircut. If he chooses to go to sleep, he will have another conversation with Daniel before going to sleep. If he chooses to get a haircut, he will receive a mohawk-like hairstyle before going to sleep.

The following morning, Sean accidentally sleeps in, resulting in him nearly being late for Big Joe to leave him behind, but makes it just in time. After working for the day, Merrill brings him, Cassidy, Finn, and Jacob into his office to give them feedback on their bud-trimming efficiency. As he is about to give them their pay, Big Joe bursts in with Daniel, who has been caught sneaking into the back room. Merrill decides not to pay his workers and fires Sean and Daniel. When Big Joe is about to beat up Daniel, he uses his telekinetic powers to hit him on the head with an ashtray. Big Joe punches either Finn or Sean depending on whether Sean takes the blame to hide Daniel's power or not.

Later that night, Daniel demonstrates his powers to Cassidy, Finn, and Jacob in the woods alongside Sean. Finn suggests using Daniel's power to break into Merrill's safe and take his money, but is stopped by Cassidy, who doesn't like the idea of involving a kid in his plan. Afterwards, Cassidy, Finn and the other drifters throw a farewell party for the brothers, Ingrid, and Anders.

During the party, Sean either talks to or is called over by Finn, who sits on the bench near the lake sign. Finn attempts to convince Sean to go along with the heist on Merrill's house, and Sean can choose to join or go against it.


Reject

After rejecting the plan, Sean is able to say his goodbyes to the rest of the drifters. He eventually meets up with Cassidy and can take up her offer of a tattoo to remember her by. After that, Sean heads down to the lake with Cassidy and can choose to join her in skinny-dipping. If he does, Sean attempts to go in just his underwear before Cassidy tells him to take it all off, to which he complies.

As they swim, Cassidy complains about Finn's idea for the heist, then brings up his liking towards Sean. If Sean has a low relationship with Cassidy, Sean can either tell her that he and Finn are just friends or admit that he likes him, which she plays off. If Sean has a high relationship with Cassidy, he has the option of admitting his feelings and sharing a kiss with her.

Once back at the party, if Cassidy has kissed Sean, she invites him into her tent. If he accepts and enters, they proceed to have sex; afterwards, Sean apologizes for not being good enough, to which Cassidy assures him that he'll have time to practice. After they exit (or if Sean didn't kiss Cassidy or refused her offer), Hannah walks up to them and tells them she hasn't been able to find Finn, prompting the two to go after him to stop his plan. They head over to the parking lot and steal one of the trucks to get to Merrill's house.

Once at the pot farm, Sean and Cassidy find Finn and Daniel about to break into Merrill's living room. Sean and Cassidy angrily admonish Finn for taking Daniel to do something so dangerous. Finn tries to convince Sean one last time to join him for the heist. If Sean accepts, Cassidy becomes angry at both of them and leaves the house. Sean, Finn and Daniel then break into the living room. If Sean refuses, Daniel will express his frustration at Sean for spending to much time with Cassidy, and can potentially hurt her with his power. He then will angrily use his power to break the lock of the door leading to the living room. Finn and Daniel then go inside and Sean and Cassidy go behind them to stop them. The group gets caught by Merrill, who is carrying a shotgun and threatens them holding them with a gunpoint. If Sean didn't sabotage the cars at the parking lot, Big Joe arrives at the scene and brings Cassidy with him if she left earlier. Merril tells the group to get on their knees. Finn refuses and tries to talk his way out of it, which angers Merrill and prompts him to hit him in the gut with the back of his shotgun or to Big Joe to shoot him in the leg if he's present at the scene. Merrill then tells them that even if they are young and can learn from mistakes, they need a lesson, and approaches a badly hurt Finn. A distraught Daniel looks at Sean expectantly for approval to use his power to defend Finn.

Use Daniel's power

Sean tells Daniel to use his power and Daniel does so, quickly throwing Merrill's shotgun out of his hands. Merrill reacts by pulling off a back up gun, but Sean takes advantage of the brief moment of confusion and tackles him to the ground. Merrill head butts Sean and manages to get Sean off of him. Merrill then reaches for his gun and shoots, hitting Daniel on his right shoulder.

Do nothing

Sean tells Daniel to not move and Finn will try to convince Merrill that he will make up for his mistake. Depending on the brother's relationship, Daniel an ether obey or ignore Sean's order.

Daniel obeys

If Daniel obeys, he will remain still as Sean requested, then Merrill proceeds to shoot Finn dead, much to Daniel's shock. Sean tries to comfort him, but Daniel pushes Sean against the wall and blames him for what happened.

Daniel doesn't obey

If Daniel disobeys Sean's order, then he will use his power to throw Merrill's shotgun out of his hands. Merrill reacts by pulling off a back up gun, but Sean takes advantage of the brief moment of confusion and tackles him to the ground. Merrill head butts Sean and manages to get Sean off of him. Merrill then reaches for his gun and shoots, hitting Daniel on his right shoulder.

Join

After accepting the plan, Finn expresses his happiness and asks Sean if he'd be willing to stay with the group after they're done. If Finn and Sean have a high relationship, he goes on to admit to Sean that he feels a strong connection with him. If Sean says he feels the same way, they share a kiss. After promising to get him once ready, Sean thinks to himself that he was glad he kissed Finn and "kind of [wants] to do it again".

Afterwards, Sean is able to say his goodbyes to the rest of the drifters. He eventually meets up with Cassidy and can take up her offer of a tattoo to remember her by. Sean can then speak to Daniel to begin the heist or head down to the lake with Cassidy and choose to join her in skinny-dipping. If he does go skinny-dipping, Sean attempts to go in just his underwear before Cassidy tells him to take it all off, to which he complies. As they swim, Cassidy asks Sean what he thinks about Finn's plan, to which he can either lie or tell her the truth, the latter of which causes her to become angry and leave.

If he lies, Cassidy then brings up Finn's liking towards Sean. If Sean has a low relationship with Cassidy, Sean can either tell him they're just friends, admit that they kissed (if they did), to which Cassidy enthusiastically supports him, or admit that he likes her, which she plays off. If Sean has a high relationship with Cassidy, he has the option of admitting his feelings towards her and sharing a kiss in the lake.

Once back at the party, Finn appears and asks Sean about their plan, causing Cassidy to become angry at both of them and leave. The two along with Daniel then head down to the parking lot and steal a car to get to Merrill's house. Once they arrive, they search for a way to break in, and eventually, they make it. Depending on whether they got spotted by the security cameras or not, or if they were sneaky enough, they potentially accomplish to open Merrill's safe, and Sean has the option to take the gun inside it. Regardless of the outcome, the group gets caught by Merrill, who is carrying a shotgun and threatens them holding them with a gunpoint. If Sean didn't sabotage the cars at the parking lot, Big Joe will arrive at the scene. Merril tells the group to get on their knees.

Obey

Sean obeys the order and tells Daniel to do the same, but Finn refuses and tries to talk his way out of it, which angers Merrill and prompts him to hit him in the gut with the back of his shotgun or to Big Joe to shoot him in the leg if he's present at the scene. Merrill then tells them that even if they are young and can learn from mistakes, they need a lesson, and approaches a badly hurt Finn. A distraught Daniel looks at Sean expectantly for approval to use his power to defend Finn.

Sean shoots Merrill with the gun he took from his safe. Merrill falls to the floor and shoots his shotgun in retaliation, shooting Finn dead, much to Daniel's shock. Sean tries to comfort him, but Daniel pushes Sean against the wall.

Sean Discuss

Sean will tell Merrill to calm down and will try to convince him that they can still talk it out. Merrill hits Sean on the face with the back of his shotgun and insists again for them to get on their knees. Finn refuses and tries to talk his way out of it, which angers Merrill and prompts him to hit him in the gut with the back of his shotgun. He then tells them that even if they are young and can learn from mistakes, they need a lesson, and approaches a badly hurt Finn.

Daniel then lashes out, losing control of his powers. He destroys the room, knocking out everyone present at the scene. The next morning, Sean is still unconscious; shattered glass is all over him, one shard penetrating his left eye. Daniel is gone and a trail of money is visible.

Episode Four - "Faith"

Sean was found by police and was admitted into Sacred Hope Hospital, where he was in a coma and was left permanently half-blind as a result of the glass shard hitting his eye before regaining consciousness a few weeks later. During his time in the hospital while held under police surveillance, Sean received letters from Claire and Stephen, Chris, and Cassidy, befriended a nurse named Joey Peterson, struggles to draw with only one eye, and was frequently visited by FBI Agent Maria Elena Flores, who plans to take Sean to Jolena Shore the next day. In his notebook, Sean finds out that Daniel is in Haven Point and plans to escape.

He escapes his room by either convincing Joey to help, knock out Joey if he failed to convince him, knock out the guard, or escape through the window. After reclaiming his things and stealing some medical supplies, he climbs down some scaffolds where he sees Finn (with the option of saying goodbye) or Merrill in one of the rooms. While searching the parking lot, he finds a car that's not locked and uses it to travel to Haven Point. After driving for miles, he stops in the desert to rest. He then has a dream where he finds himself driving down the road with Esteban, who calls Lyla with Daniel also being on the phone with her. He is then woken up by Chad Michaels and Mike Wilson, who are unhappy with him for trespassing on their lands. After being forced out by Chad, who threatens to call the police. Chad raids his things and finds Daniel's toy, who will break it if Sean tries to retrieve it. If Chad asks Sean to sing a song in Spanish, he can do so or refuse. If he does, he will be allowed to leave without a fight. If he refuses, Chad will beat him up until Mike stops him and help Sean escape due to a storm in the distance. Sean then expresses frustration while fleeing. 

The next morning, Sean abandons the stolen car after it runs out of gas and has to walk to Haven Point. If he wanders too far from the road, he will come across a rattlesnake. After stopping to rest under a billboard, a truck comes by and stops a few meters ahead. If Sean opens the door, the trucker, Anton Oates, offers a lift. Sean can accept or refuse. If he refuses, he continues to walk to Haven Point. If he accepts, he will befriend Anton, who will share a snack as he takes Sean to Haven Point.

Arriving at Haven Point, Sean goes to the Universal Uprising Church where he meets Sarah Lee Hackerman and her father, Robert Hackerman. While in the church, he has the option of donating money for the church and freshening up in the bathroom. He tries to enter the main room through the double doors but instead decides to try the balcony so to not draw too much attention. After listening to Lisbeth Fischer's speech and watching Daniel show off his powers in front of the audience. Sarah Lee comes across Sean and, after realizing who he is, reveals that she is friends with Daniel. Sean reunites with Daniel, but their reunion is cut short when Daniel reveals that he decides to stay and help Lisbeth, who has sinister plans for him. After trying to forcefully leave with Daniel, he is thrown out by Nicholas, Lisbeth's altar boy, who threatens to harm him should he try to meddle with Lisbeth's business. When Sean protests, Karen shows up and stops him, as protesting won't help rescue Daniel. She then takes Sean to the Sand Snake Motel. After showering, he calls Jacob, who arranges a meeting tomorrow. Karen returns and the two start a conversation, leading Sean, who is very upset and still reluctant to trust and forgive Karen after abandoning him and his family, to step outside. Karen follows and resumes their conversation.

The next day, Sean and Karen head to the place where Jacob told them to meet him. They then get into a rough conversation that leads Sean to scold Jacob for what had happened to Daniel. The two then sneak into Lisbeth's house (with the option of talking to the people along the way), where they find out about Lisbeth's scheme and backstory. Karen alerts Sean that Nicholas is coming, either suspicious (if Sean spoke to or alerted the people near the church or didn't take precaution to hide their tracks) or unaware of them. Sean can also accept Karen's plan to distract him. If Sean doesn't hide in time, Nicholas will catch him and Jacob. If he does, Nicholas will be unaware of him unless he is suspicious, which will lead him to find Sean unless he accepted Karen's plan, which will lure him away. 

Sean storms the church, either with Karen or being dragged inside by Nicholas if he caught Sean. He and Karen try to reason with Daniel while Nicholas tries to shut Sean up by ruthlessly beating him up. When Nicholas attempts to shoot Sean on Lisbeth's orders, Daniel finally comes to his senses and saves Sean. Due to a fire that they caused during the showdown, they try to escape but are stopped by Lisbeth, who wants to ensure that they die for ruining her business. Depending on Sean and Daniel's behavior, Sean may shoot Lisbeth with Nicholas's gun, convince Daniel to spare her when he attempts to strangle her, let Daniel snap her neck, or ask Daniel to forcefully move her. They escape the church and watch as it burns down, with Nicholas and Lisbeth (if she's still alive) following them. After saying goodbye to Jacob and Sarah Lee, Sean, Daniel, and Karen continue their journey.

Episode Five - "Wolves"

TBC

Death (Determinant)

There is one possible ending in which Sean can die (referred to as the "Lone Wolf" ending). If Sean chooses to turn himself in at the end of "Wolves" and Daniel's morality is low, Daniel will refuse to let Sean surrender. He locks Sean's door and uses his powers to throw aside everything in their way while the police open fire on them. Once they reach the other side of the border, Daniel realizes that Sean was shot in the neck and killed. Six years later, Daniel visits Sean's memorial on the beach of Puerto Lobos.

Symbolism

Animal Symbolism

Sean Consequences Flipbook - Frame01

Sean is heavily associated with the wolf, which is depicted on his favorite, most-worn hoodie. Though none physically appear, wolves are referenced several times throughout the first three episodes of Life is Strange 2. Following the making of any decision with consequences, an animation depicting a large and a small wolf running together is played in the bottom right corner, the opacity of either wolf changing depending on whether the said decision will impact Sean, Daniel, or both. In addition, the brothers refer to themselves as wolves and enjoy howling together like the animal.

As a spirit animal, the wolf symbolizes raw emotion, a deep connection with one's instincts, and an appetite for freedom, as well as feelings of vulnerability and danger. [4]

She can tell Sean that she's "met way too many (...) selfish prick(s)", indicating that her dislike of Sean is rooted in past experience. If Sean proves his group work ethic by aiding Hannah in peeling potatoes, she opens up to him about her life more during their optional conversation; if he didn't, she opts to give him shorter, clipped answers instead. During their going-away party, Hannah can tell him that he fit in good and she "almost [liked him]".

  • Anders - Anders is another worker on Merrill's farm. Sean has very few interactions with him throughout Episode 3. The two can talk alongside Penny during Sean and Daniel's farewell party. When Sean says he doesn't want to get drunk, Anders will say he will party twice as hard for him, showing a small level of respect between the two.
  • Joey - Joey is a nurse who takes care of Sean during his time at Sacred Hope Hospital. The two become friends and Sean mentions Joey is the only one he feels he can trust.

Romantic

  • Jenn Murphy (love interest, formerly) - Jenn attended the same school as Sean in Seattle and the two began talking through their mutual friend Lyla Park. Jenn once helped Sean with his math homework and the two clearly displayed an interest in one another, especially on Sean's end. The two planned to meet up at Eric's party and Sean was hoping to ask her out. In the days following Esteban's death, Jenn messaged Sean to tell him she was not allowed to talk to him anymore due to him being a prime suspect in a homicide investigation. She told Sean that she was extremely sorry about his father and wished him well.
  • Finn (Determinant) - Finn appears to take a romantic interest in Sean, which he expresses and will act on depending on Sean's choices in Episode 3. Throughout the episode, Sean can show an interest in Finn on several occasions: Sean has the option of asking Finn about his background and family history, choosing to draw a sketch of Finn instead of Cassidy, agreeing to get a haircut from Finn and stating that Sean is interested in boys, and siding with Finn on his end-of-episode plan, the most important choice being supporting Finn in his heist. If Sean agrees to help Finn and talks to him at the late-night party at the campgrounds, Finn will tell him that he's glad they met and that he thinks they share a strong connection. Sean has the option of reciprocating Finn’s feelings and the two of them can share a kiss. In his journal, Sean mentions that Finn is "the sweetest guy [he's] ever met." If Finn survived the events of Episode 3, Sean will encounter him again in the next episode during his escape from the hospital.

At the late-night party at the campgrounds, Cassidy expresses to Sean that she's bummed out that he and Daniel have to leave, and tells him about her desire to leave her work at the farm and go somewhere else, but that the rest of the group want to stay a while longer. Sean can potentially invite her to join him and his brother on their journey but she rejects the offer telling him that she's not made for that life. She then offers Sean to draw him a tattoo and invites him for a midnight swim at the lake. If he joins her, showed interest in her during the episode and rejected Finn's plan, or if he accepted it but lies to her about it, then Cassidy confesses her feelings for Sean, telling him that she likes him. If he reciprocates her feeling, then they both can share a kiss. If they kissed, and Sean rejected Finn's plan, then Cassidy will invite Sean to her tent to have sex. Once in the tent. Sean admits to her that he's a virgin, but she tells him that it doesn't matter. They then have a moment of intimacy. Once it's done, Sean is embarrassed for his poor performance and apologizes to her, but she reassures him and tells that it's normal for his first time and that he'll learn with experience. Once outside the tent, Sean learns that Finn took Daniel behind his back to carry out his plan. Cassidy offers him her help and they both head to Merrill's house in order to stop them. On their way there, Sean tells Cassidy he would like for their relationship to continue in the future.

He goes to Merrill's house along with Cassidy in order to stop him. Once they catch them, Sean angrily admonishes Finn for taking Daniel to do something so dangerous.

Chad orders Sean to get out of the car and then begins to question him about his eye medicine, toys in his backpack and the hotwired car.

Sean Max T-Shirt Logo Comparison
  • During Episode 3's opening flashback, Sean wears a t-shirt which bears the same brand logo as a shirt worn by Max Caulfield during Episode 2 of Life is Strange.

He is given the option between saying some boys are cute and liking girls more during the episode's campfire sequence.

This can create the appearance of an infinite loop that goes beyond the visual bounds.
