Brown Anderson was a Survival Advisor for the popular Idol Survival TV series. A former BSAA agent, he served during the 2009 Kijuju Autonomous Zone Incident before retiring after the death of his team. As part of the Idol Survival staff, he used his BSAA skills to gather survivors of the Sonido de Tortuga Island Incident as zombies began to amass. Working with Laura Bierce and "Crazy" Alec, he was able to fight his way off of the infected White Castle cruiser before meeting with Takeru Tominaga, Mayu and Julie.
Brown taught the surviving group how to set traps for zombies and prepare shelter for themselves, only to show symptoms of zombification himself as he attacked Laura. Using what little willpower he had left, Brown forced Takeru to shoot and kill him, entrusting the safety of the remaining women to Tominaga before dying.
