Patrick is Lana Arwen Lazar's golden retrieve. After they crash in the desert, he fights off a mountain lion earning a deep gash in his neck. He would've died from blood loss if Lana hadn't healed him. Later, after Lana healed herself, he and Lana then stay in Hermit Jim's cabin where they found some food and water. They then walk to an old mining town where they met the Darkness.
