Quade was the senior member of the military team sent into New York after the virus was unleashed into the city. Most of the team were killed, including Private Billy, leaving only him, Lee and Joe left alive. He at first disliked having Susie join the team, but soon she gained his trust. As Susie left for a while he and his fellow members fixed a train in the New York subway, so that they could use it to get to an Helicopter airfield and escape on a helicopter before New York city would be destroyed by an nuclear warhead. Later he and Susie with everyone else, including Susie`s Dad left on the train, but soon a Destroyer shot him and Lee, killing them both.
